Default 03 pt cruiser engine

Hi, I'm new to this forum and am after some info on a PT.
I have an 03 PT Limited which has a 2.0L badge on the back, but , it has a 3T588945 engine no. which on info I found here in Australia tells me it is a 2.4L.

So, which is right, the badge or the engine no????

take a spark plug out and stick something long down to the piston. rotate the engine by hand. mark it at the lowest and highest points. if your marks are ~83mm apart you have a 2.0, if they are ~100mm you have a 2.4
