Hey all, I just received my new short block from eBay. The post said it would work with pt cruiser NA as well as the 03, 04 srt4. So the first thing I noticed is there is no oil return tapped into the block. Does anyone know of any other port I can use for the return or should I just tap the sump? Also, is the turbo engine the only ones that have the oil squirters? I’ve attached pics of my new and old block. Thanks

If the blocks have their heads removed (as your article says short block) you should definitely see a difference in the pistons. The turbo pistons sit lower in the cylinders at TDC. This is due to the lower compression set up. If you remove the pistons the turbo models have heavier rods and floating pins.
