Question Can I swap a 2001 w/egr engine for a 2002 engine w/o egr?

I have a 2001 PT limited edition, 4dr, automatic with EGR. I need a new engine. Can I swap mine for a 2001 or 2002 engine that doesn't have EGR? Will it need modifications?

The big thing is the crank sensor location on the block. They have to be in the same location.

my 2002 has EGR. same as the 2001.

just out of curiosity, why do you need a new engine?

'01 and '02 had egr, in '03 Chrysler did away with it. The engines will swap provided the sensors are in the same place like mentioned above. The other issue is that the '01 computer will still be looking for the egr so you will have a check engine light...

The 03 won't go in because of the crank sensor is in a different location. 02 I'm not sure about them. Also they can drill for the egr.

Yes, the acronym 'NGC' (Next Generation Controller) applies to '03 and up PT's.
The crankshaft ring thingy the computer reads is different '94-'02 and '03 & up.

Some less popular vehicles (Jeep?) didn't go to NGC in '03, so just do as Busted says to differentiate.

Chrysler also sells head EGR blocks offs, PN 4591227
I have used ones; drill down in this link:
