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!
