wouldnt it be possible that if you wanted engine performance parts, to buy stuff that fits on the Chevy Cavalier 2.4l engine? i kinda noticed alot of stuff on ebay is cheaper for the cavalier than it is for us...just a thought

sure if you have a 2.4l engine they would be the same. but if your looking into putting those parts on a 3.4l your out of luck. basically if u want parts hit up the site sponsors or find someone to get you them custom those are the best options that i know of.

Yea most engine parts will work, but things like header and exhuast wont without modification.

2.4 is not a bad engine in any way.

Everything will bolt on from a 2.4 Cavy. Intakes(warm airs only), manifolds, throttle bodies, even headers- all you have to do is weld the 02 bung shut and drill a hole on the other side of the collector. Exhaust can be custom made at any decent shop- have them do a 2.25" from the header back when they put the header on.

Nothing should be cheaper.... its the exact same engine.
