Default Adding a turbo

I have a friend I work with that has a Dodge Neon SRT-4 and he took the stock turbo out of it and added a stage 3 turbo. He is giving me the stock turbo for free and i was wondering if it would fit in my pt. I have a 2002 Limited Edition 2.4 liter automatic one. I was planning on removing the big air box and put a short ram intake in to free up some room under the hood for it.

The SRT 4 and PT GT engines are the same. The SRT has a different intake.
Fit isn't your problem - engine control is. Different engine computer and wiring harness for a turbo PT.

Welcome to the forum.

There's a heck a lot more than throwing in someone else's turbo into your PT, and it'll be a major expense. Not to mention that the non-turbo engine isn't built to take a lot of HP. The turbo engine from the factory is built to withstand the punishment that the turbo puts on internal engine parts.

Try a search of the forum for more detailed answers to your question plus here's some added reading for you.
