    Im in the middle of preparing an SRT4 for SMF and I need a few clarifications. Forgive me if any of this is obvious 

     

    Engine: Stock block, modified stock cylinder head, modified stock intake manifold, modified stock exhaust manifold, larger wheel in stock turbo, flashed tuned. I know everything there is fine.

    Transmission: Stock upgraded shifter, clutch, and, axles. Everything is okay there as well. 

    Suspension/Chassis: This is where it gets a little hairy. 

    2002 PT Cruiser inner tie rods, steering knuckles, and, brakes. It all bolts on with no modification to K frame or control arms. The reasoning behind it is first off its all 17lb lighter secondly it allows for a better bump steer curve. This is my first curiosity. 

    5th motor mount: The car uses 4 motor mounts from the factory, one in each "frame" rail and two roll stop mounts on the top and bottom of the pass side. I make a 3/16" steel replacement for the clutch cover between the engine and gearbox that allows for a 5th mount to be added however a tab must be welded onto the K frame. Im not sure on the legality of this 

    Control Arm Brace: A single steel bar running across the lower control arm mounting points

    Traction bars: Straight steel bars running from the sway bar mounting point to the K frame to limit fore aft movement. 

     

    That's all I can think of now Thank You for your help!

    Traction bar = ok
    Control arm brace = ok
    5h motor mount = ok

    I'm not sure on the different steering knuckles, but I want to say OK.

    I did read it and came to the conclusions that I was okay (why I built what I built) however I want others opinions to be sure I was not having lets say an optimistic interpretation of the rules. Thank you both for you input.
