I can think of at least one LWB that had the 2.4L motor in it. I suggest reading up about the 2.4LT-E motors though. I've heard about a lot of problems with head warpage and difficulty in finding parts (at least for the JDM imported ones).
Personally I'd go for a 1.6 Turbo Diesel out of a VW, using the Acme adapter kit.
