Engine Specifications 2.0L GDI Ti-VCT

Item Specification
Displacement 2.0L (122 CID)
No. of cylinders 4
Bore/stroke 3.43.3 in (87.583.1 mm)
Firing order 1-3-4-2
Compression ratio 12:1
Engine weight - Manual 266.1 lb (120.7 kg)
Engine and manual transmission weight 380.7 lb (172.7 kg)
As compared to the 2011 and prior 2.0 L port injected engine:

Displacement 2.0L
No. of cylinders 4
Bore/stroke 87.5/83.1
Firing order 1-3-4-2
Engine weight (without accessory drive components and flexplate or flywheel) 115.8 kg (255.3 lb)
Engine and transaxle assembly weight (without accessory drive components) 203.8 kg (449.3 lb)
The engine is available with the same MTX-75 as before so I'm almost certain they didn't change the bell housing bolt pattern, but until some one actually takes one of these engines and tries to mount it into place that might not be the case.

There are at least an upper engine mount on the right hand side of the vehicle and a rear motor mount next to the transmission on the transverse factory application, these might be different than what was used previously.

The FEAD (front end accessory drive) is on the right hand side of the vehicle when mounted transversely as in the factory location (that would be the front of the engine when mounted longitudinally for a rwd application.

Picture of the engine showing the relative location of the coolant over flow bottle, air intake and other components under the hood.

Clearer side shot of the air intake manifold and plastic intake runners.

Under and to the left of the coolant over flow reservoir is the upper power train / engine mount. The silver metal bracket and the black rubber or similar mounting material to absorb the vibrations.

The upper engine mount looks to be the same basic design/ mounting points per the service manual. The lower mount is basically between the transmission mount and the subframe on the passenger car application of the engine.

It appears that dimensionally the engine block is probably the same, just strengthened up to run at 12:1 compression with the fuel system modifications to put the injectors into the high pressure cylinders as opposed to the atmospheric pressure air intake just outside of the valve inlet.
