Nope, it won't fit. They both sit on opposite sides of the engine bay. It'd be A LOT more trouble than it's worth.

According to a reliable source at Apex. They are dropping a 2.4L Sonata engine in 97 Accent.

"RUA69ER2?"

Now this interests me! Can you please let me know if your reliable source is able to produce evidence and run down on doing this.
Thanks.

Hooray,

the sonata 2.4L I-4 sucks balls. It only has 10 More HP and torque than the Beta 2.0L in elantras and Tiburons. There is NO aftermarket support for the 2.4L but there is for the 2.0L.

Also, the 2.0L into an accent is a common swap, but the 2.4L is not.

Go with the 2.0L if you plan on doing any modifications to the engine after the swap.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

Here's a project being done by our same representative in South Africa that wrote the how to on the Beta swap:

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote> have built an oval track car with a 2.4 16valve sonata engine in it.(this is my real passion).
I took a 2.0 L sonata engine , took out the 2.0 L crank & replaced it with a 2.4 hyundai crank(some old sonata`s came out with a 2.4 12 valve eng.)I used 86mm forged pistons out of what we call a opel(GM) 2.0 L 16 valve engine.The 2.4 crank has 6mm longer stroke than th 2.0L eng.With the 2.4 crank in the 2.0L block the std. pistons protrude 6mm(but the GM pistons are 6mm shorter & half the weight.

OK Ricochet, although the Sonata 2.0 litre with the short stroke was my interest what am I able to do in regards to the bore and stroke of the Beta engine? i.e. how wide a bore, how long.short a stroke? And as always what are the valve sizes please?

Hooray,

Random, you no anything about the crank from the 2.4 ltr fitting in the 2ltr? What would be the advantage of doing that kind of swap? From what that stated it sounds to me that you simply end up with lighter pistons but other than that<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>. I am confused and excited damn it's like puberty.

Stop honking I'm on the Phone!

The increase in the stroke to 2.4 will enlarge the size of the motor giving more power. Everything else being the same the longer stroke will also increase the torque of the motor. However, if you stay with the 2.0 and put in shorter conrods to arrive at the same ratio as that of the 2.4 you will have a similar torque output and be able to rev higher than the 2.4. Means, of course, that you would have to boost your BHP up to equal the 2.4s extra size... i.e. larger fuel injectors, extractor, higher compression ratio, etc...if you want the same amount of power.

Assume that the stroke was 3.68" and the conrods were 5.75" centre to centre you would have a ratio of 1.5625 eh. So to get that same ratio in, say a 3.31 stroke, you would have to put in a conrod with the C-C of 5.171875. Compris? This would then give the 3.31 stroke engine the same torque as the 3.68 stroke engine.

Hooray,
