Default Transmissions that fit the 2.4 turbo

What are some cars that have the nvt350 in them other than the PT cruiser or what are some cars that have transmissions that will bolt on to the 2.4 turbo?

this is the T350 expert on this site:

ALL T-350's are interchangeable, hydraulic bellhousings started in '01.
You can swap the bellhousing's back and forth; you should check differential
rolling torque (preload) if you do this.

Steel quality increased in ~ '01, but older T-350's would handle IMMENSE
torque, so don't worry about this.

There were nominal changes in 2d gear ratio with the newer trans, 2d
was slightly steeper.

there's two 5th gear ratio's, .81 (aka the 'ACR' ratio) and .72

These transmissions are CHEAP, and I mean CHEAP. $75-$250
They are EZ to work on, and reliable.
Differential, per se, needs two 'differential saver tabs' (Newer models
have these installed) and are ~ $3 each. Shift fork will sometimes wear,
but don't they all ...

And of course, boogers.

Here's a simple primer from our Neon factory rep genius (knows more than God!);

Right now I have a t-350 hydraulic bellhousing (4668697AC), it'll have differential saver tabs installed.
It has the .81 final drive, so OTG is STEEP. It'll likely go closer to top range.

I'm in Minneapolis.

From what I've found. The Turbo motors need a heavier duty transmission. the 41TE automatic is supposedly strong enough for the turbos, but comes with additional electronics to allow for "auto-stick" operation.

As for the manuals, In the GT the 5-speed is a Getrag 288 transaxle. That handles more power than the T-350. The T-350 is supposedly only in the NA PT's. I am unaware of what the Turbo-lites came with.

This information is what I have gathered, but it could be wrong. As for other transmissions that would fit the PT and bolt up, I am unaware of any transmission that would.
