JA: Are you fixing your Cavalier yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: the rod bearing spun #3, just need to know if a 03 2.2 long block is the same as a 06 2.2 long block? read online about a change in the crank trigger being different and something about egr/non egr
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nevermind......the difference is in the stator, 2000-05 has notches cut into the crank, 2006-07 also has them cut into crank but the cuts are different and 2008-on has a bolt on ring, all this makes a difference to the computer, for example my old atari compared to a playstation 4, 5,6 whatever the kids play. Have a nice day
