A lot of people seem to underestimate the performance potential of the 2.4L. 2.3L W-41 heads are a direct bolt-on, increasing crank power output above 200hp.Originally posted by Aurora40@May 23 2004, 08:58 AM
Yes, the 2.4 grew out of the Quad 4. It grew in displacement, and was toned down to be smoother. It's not as revvy and wild as the Quad 4 was.
The Ecotech is a global GM engine. It is pretty impressive IMO. They have good torque, economy, and reliability. Plus, they have a lot of performance potential. They showed up on the 2002 Alero. The 5-speed showed up in 2001.
