Default Exhaust Manifold 2.0 versus 2.5

Sorry if posting in the wrong place - my first post!
Just bought my first PT Cruiser... a 2.0 L and the exhaust manifold needs replacing. Can't find anyone here in the UK (except Chrysler themselves) who can get me a replacement.
Have managed to find someone in the US to ship me over an OBX Header - only it's for a 2.4 L.
Does anyone know whether it will fit my car. Are the 2.0 and 2.4 interchangeable? Or am I back to square one?
Thanks in advance

If it's not a diesel engine, it should be the same as the 2.0 out of the Neon, in which case it should have the same block casting as the 2.4 ...... and ergo the same mount up for the exhaust manifold.

Thanks Lakersfan for your quick response. You guessed right - mine is a petrol engine. So the two should fit - that's really useful to know. I'd picked up whilst researching this that the PT Cruiser was pretty much based upon the Neon but wasn't sure how far it went. (Stupidly) I hadn't realised that the manifolds might be the same. I may have more luck getting hold of a Neon manifold. Am I right in thinking that they are the same or should I stick with plan A and ship over the header? Once again - thanks for you help!

While I'm sure a Neon header would bolt to the engine side, the length and bends to the catalytic converter are probably different. Otherwise they'd just use the same part number for both applications.
