Default What's the difference in a vin x 2.4 and a vin b 2.4 (07 pt cruiser)

I'm new to the pt cruiser world and I'm trying to build my first engine for one of these and I keep running into the is it a vin x motor or a vin b motor, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Chrysler made slight modifications to the 2.4 to eliminate a few problems,
Early 2.4 Pt Cruisers had the crank sensor above the oil filter in the rear of the engine, latter models had the crank sensor behind the starter on the front.
Some oil passage drain holes were enlarges on latter models. So you shouldn't mix years when the engine was built to avoid problems.
