Who made the engines, Dodge or Mistsu? I see they had 2.5, but they were not the same as a 2.5 dodge., they had differant bore and stroke, bore bigger than stroke, and 2459 cc. as opposed to 2508cc. Were they a single overhead cam, 2 or 4 valve head? Steel or aluminum? Do any parts interchange with a Dodge 2.5 or 2.2, or trans? Were they even a west/east mounted engine, or north south, like the intrepeds? I dont know if they just didn't last or they wanted the bigger v6s, they only made a few years of them. But the numbers say lots more power than a dodge 2.5.

wrong; you guys ever hear of wikipedia ?? ;)

Eagle Premier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

the 2.5 was the old AMC pushrod (2/3 of the ancient 4.2 / 258 cid) which was used in the Jeeps, and replaced our SOHC 2.5 in the Dakotas in '96

PS get a premier 3.0 (or it's twin : dodge monaco) ; its a PRV 3.0 and a MUCH better motor that the AMC 2.5

LOL - PRV 3.0 = same engine as the DeLorean had

Nah, no need for V 6, just wondering if it would ever make a good dirt track mini stock engine, didn't know it was used in the later Jeeps and Dakotas. But I see it made way more power than a naturally aspirated Dodge 2.5, maybe thats the injection. I can't see see turning the rpm usually ran there with a 2.5 long stroke, 2.2's are good, a bit less engine for the class, I would guess. I do like you can get a shaft mount rocker for the AMC/Jeep 2.5, just not sure how good the Jeep 2.5 will last, or compared to a 2.2 head, the airflow, After reading up, it is 2/3 a 232

the local dirt track mini stock winners are usually the quad 4 in e.g a grand am or beretta

altho the neon and the 2.0 probe do well also

no-one runs 2V's ; well I mean no-one ever places with 2Vs

it would have to be a carbed engine, and alot of the 4 valve engines (for anything Chrysler/Amc/Mitsu) they are fwd, I never seen a good running FWD vs. the Pinto/Mustang 2.3s. on Dirt. When I was in Washington, I seen VW Rabbits clean up on a 3/8 mile track, but that was asphalt, not dirt. They also say no aluminum heads, but I'm guessing that is referring to aftermarket, otherwise it would outlaw a whole bunch of them, most or all 4 valves, Dodge 2.2 & 2.5, Toyota. But it doesn't mean a fwd can't work on dirt, I just aint seen it, ...yet But, no non 4 valve rules!

the eagle premier has a 3.0 Renault engine. it was part of the AMC/French connection. chrysler ended up with this abomination when they aquired AMC. the sister car was the Dodge Monaco. it was quickly dumped when the LH cars made production.

I've done some reading up, msn autos and a few others, allpar, Wikipedia. It had the 3.0 most of the years, if not all of them, but the 2.5 was there the first 2 years or so, sat on the shelf after it went all v 6, later to be a jeep and dakota engine
