Valve Cover -- bayonet mount?

just bought a new Mopar powdercoated valve cover for the 2.0L and I noticed that the oil filler cap hole is bayonet style, and not screw-in like the stocker.

Anyone know a source for a bayonet style oil cap for the 2.0L engine?

To Hotchkis or not to Hotchkis

I hear lots of superlatives here attached to the hollow Hotchkis sway bar set-up, and I'm wondering if it's $250-ish better than my Eibach solid bars, which are 24mm/22mm front/back, respectively.

Anyone have experience with both?

Just an update... I called the KW office in the US and their rep claimed that replacement springs for these units are available from DC in several different spring rates. I could find nothing in the Mopar Performance catalog, but I'm checking this out with DC. That said, I can see no reason to purch...

Mopar Stage 3 Coilovers <-- Don't

I just installed a set of Mopar Stage 3 coilovers as replacements for my Ledas while I have them reconditioned. The lock ring (preventing lowering beyond an inch or so) is unacceptably conservative and the spring rates are way too soft for a performance set-up. Since they're KW units, the quality is...

Geeeez

Next question: is the benefit from the install worth it? I've got Leda coilovers on the car now and big sway bars. Maybe that's enough.

What's the story with Energy Suspension Bushings?

OK, so I got a set of Energy Suspension lower control arm bushings and take them to the local dealer for installation. They refuse after reading the instructions -- something to do with heating up the metal casing with a torch to punch out the old rubber bushing. What type of shop does this kind of ...

Thanks. Care to share just where you tapped into the circuit? Wire color, location, etc?

Interior lighting

Anyone know a good place to tap into the dome light circuit? I'm planning on switching over to an LED interior lighting system that operates fron the existing door switches.

Coolant recommendations?

I'm replacing my stock radiator with a new C&R unit (aluminum). My question: anything special about the OEM coolant DC uses, or should I be using something better?

Now the Energy bushings... thats a different story. On the Energy bushings you can't just press out the stock and press in the new. You have to use the center metal piece out of the stock bushing and that thing is covered in rubber which most people burn off with a torch since thats the easiest... ...

What's the deal with polyurethane front control arm bushings

OK, so I'm going to the local DC dealer anyway to get my belts replaced and I decide to get a set of Energy Suspension polyurethane fromt control arm bushings I've had for a bit installed while the car's on the rack. The service manager refuses, saying the dealership normally replaces the whole frig...

Thanks! I remember "Western New York" quite well, having spent a few years nearby in Ithaca at Cornell.

If the alternator's interchangeable, I'll get it.

Part Number Request: PT Cruiser alternator and clutch

Anybody know which PT alternator/clutch part numbers fit 2G's? I have a PT clutch in my '01 ACR right now but forgot the part number. I'd also like to replace the stock 85amp alternator with a PT unit that'll fit.
