it was originally put into the Neon in 1993 as a 2.0 SOHC, in 1994 they introduced
the DOHC head, a little later they put the head on an all-new 2.4 block.

There were some re-designs in '01, but it's essentially the same engine.
The variances year to year would be very long, and very borng

The Neon was not out in 1993. It debuted in Jan 1994 as an early 1995 model.

Yes, to get those 1994 to sell in Jan 94, they had to build in 1993
