Chrysler K engine - Chrysler developed a specialized straight-4
SOHC engine for the K-cars, referred to as the K-car engine or Trans Four. This
2.2 L engine eventually expanded to 2.5 L in 1985, and fuel injection and turbo
charging were added. The high water mark for this engine was 1991-93 when it was
available with a 16V Lotus head, twin cams, a Garrett turbocharger with intercooler,
and DIS. This version was rated 224/225 BHP.
Chrysler Neon engine - In 1994, Chrysler modified the 2.2 L
Chrysler K engine substantially for a 2.0 L straight 4 for the new Dodge Neon compact
car. This same engine was and available in SOHC and DOHC variants, the DOHC version
later expanded to 2.4 L for use in the Cirrus / Stratus / Breeze
and later used in a number of Chrysler small cars and minivans. Turbocharged variants
made their way into the PT Cruiser and the Dodge SRT-4.

1.6 L version of the SOHC Neon engine (many similarities, reduced bore size and
spacing, designed by Chrysler) for subcompact cars to be built in Brazil.

North America in any Chrysler vehicle,
it is available in the BMW MINI Cooper, and is used in international Neons and Chrysler
