WARNING!!!! LOTS OF PUMP INFORMATIONS :P

The 2.0L, SRT and PT pumps are actually different in many ways. The PUMP itself is as far as I can tell the same, but how far the pulley sticks out from the pump and how the pumps bolt up to the brackets are very different. After removing the reservoirs you cannot tell the difference between them at first glance but once you compare the how outward the pulley is or the bolt holes you start to see they are different.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PT and 2.0L pump mount in the same orientation, bolt holes at 6, 9 and 12 (like hands on a clock).
----------------------------------------------------------------
PT Pump's bolt holes are not threaded (Threads are in the side mount plate)
----------------------------------------------------------------
2.0L Pump bolt holes are thread on both sides of the pump, I even drilled my 2.0L pump holes all the way thru thinking it would bolt up like the PT pump which it did but the pulley is way way off. So now my 2.0L pump has no threads for the mounting bolts.
----------------------------------------------------------------
SRT pump mounts with the bolt holes at 5, 7 and 10 (2 holes are thru and one is threaded)
And bolting it up to my PT side engine mount bracket tilts the reservoir quite abit forward

----------------------------------------------------------------
SRT and PT pumps have the pulley farther out where as the 2.0L pump pulley actually rubs/sits on the belt tensioner.
----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------
I cannot use the 2.0L pressure line on my 2.4 since there is no room between the side engine mount plate and the timing cover like there is on the 2.0L SOHC. I haven't taken new pictures but I made 2 custom brackets to route the return line over the side engine mount plate and keep it secured. I have SRT P/S lines but they're beat up, and the SRT cooler is beat up and doesnt bolt to my K-frame so I'm going to keep the 2.0L cooler which is why I'm running the return line over the timing side so that it hooks to the cooler without doing some wacky loops behind the motor.

My setup is:
SRT Pump
2.0L Reservoir and return line (3/8 heater hose)
PT pressure line
PT P/S Bracket (on the Block)
PT Side Engine Mount Plate

If I had an SRT side engine mount plate I would have just ran the SRT pump and lines but why spend $30~ for another chunk of metal when I have stuff that just needs to be tinkered with to work :P
