  1. Hey looking to start a mighty Max project I have a 93 2.4. Just wanting some tips from someone that has been down this road. I guess I have many options but three I’m considering are Turbo the sohc 2.4,4g63 head swap or 4g63 complete transplant. Any tips and resources would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Hi Scott, I have my whole build documented from beginning to end on Hotrodcoffeeshop.com. There are also a few dozen other 4G63 swaps on there to check out. Hop over there and ask the same question, I’m sure you will get 5 different answers 😉

      Good luck with the build!
