do a little research......did the '97 have the 2.4 as an option? Is the 2.4 the same basic engine but with a larger bore or stroke, If it is the same engine, just larger displacement they it will probably bolt to the transmission without a problem and everything will hook up without reengineering the wiring and plumbing. Sorry I cannot give you a direct answer but if I were to look up the info.....you can too

not sure about the 1st place to start so i am starting right here i have an 01 cavi that was supposed to have an engine swap and be runing again almost a year and a half ago just reacently got it back and it still dont run has low compression radiator hose is leaking so my question is if i end up having to get a nother engine and make sure this is done right what is the next biger motor i can fit in it this cavi is the base modle
