Actually the first one is not an SRT4 minivan. Its a modified Chrysler K-series minivan. They came turbo from the factory featuring the old school K-series Dodge motor that was not only turbocharged but in one of several versions had a lotus designed head.

I know how it originally came But I did not know that lotus designed the head. But i guess this is a van with an SRT-4 engine because when you look at the engine it is the SRT-4 engine or at least looks like it. They labeled it as an SRT-4 Mini van so I did too. I just thought this was pretty cool. Definitely not an everyday thing.
Here is the video that shows the engine.

They can do it, but would cost a bit to get there. Those K motors werent bad but had a fair share of issues. But back in the 80s those things were awesome. Shit id rock one as daily/parts hauler... cant find one though. Probably all rusted up and got junked.

The Turbo III used a Lotus-made, Shelby-designed DOHC 16-valve head. Output was 224 horsepower (167 kW) and 217 lb·ft (294 N·m). This engine was used in 1,399 Dodge Spirit R/T and several hundred Dodge and Chrysler Daytona IROC R/T models in the US, Canada, and Europe, plus models including the Chrysler Spirit R/T and Phantom R/T in Mexico.

Cars using the 2.2T3 engine include:

* 1991-1992 Dodge Spirit R/T (North America)
* 1991-1994 Chrysler Spirit R/T (Mexico)
* 1992-1993 Dodge Daytona IROC R/T (North America, Europe)
* 1992-1994 Chrysler Phantom R/T (Mexico)

Also the rare 2.2 TC

The Chrysler TC, developed with Maserati, used a special turbocharged 2.2 engine. This version was related to the Turbo II but used a special 16-valve head — not the same as that used in the Turbo III — pistons, connecting rods, intake manifold, crankshaft and other components. No parts are interchangeable with other versions of the engine.

The 2.2 TC engine was an international effort: The cylinder head was cast in England by Cosworth and finished in Italy by Maserati. The pistons came from Mahle in Germany, and a Japanese turbocharger was sourced from IHI. The camshafts were designed by Florida-based Crane but were constructed by Maserati in Modena[citation needed]. Most of the rest of the engine was made in the United States and was similar to the Turbo II. Only 500 Chrysler TCs were produced with the DOHC 16-valve head.

They were doing some interesting things back then... too bad not everything came out the way it should have. Too bad they dont do shit like this anymore.
