As far as i'm concerned, multiport is B.S.
They changed in mid year 2001. before 2001 1/2 it was the SOHC Lima after 2001 1/2 they change to a DOHC Duratec engine (totally different).

Alot of cars now and days have dual spark setups. The new Challengers do (imagine paying for 16 platinum spark plugs when doing a tune up.) Dual spark was developed by the Japanese a long time ago.

Any luck with the swapping?
