Performance parts from Cruiser?

I was curious if anyone has looked into using PT Cruiser performance parts. I realize the cars are different. But they do both use 2.4 liter engines. So how different are the intakes, exhausts, cams, etc...

The 2.4L in the PT Cruiser is different than the one used in the Compass. The Compass uses a newly designed 2.4L.

but how much would this change the exhaust and intakes? I am thinking they would work at least. I may be wrong though.

Go here to see the 2.4 in the PT Cruiser and then click on the New World Engine link in the article to see the differences. 2.4 is just the cc, no other comparisons.

Just because something is the same CCs doesn't mean it is even of remotely the same design.

I'm not saying one way or the other, but I'd be very surprised if anything was applicable.

Thanks for the link Gramps, I see the differences and expected that internals would be very different. However I hoping we would be lucky enough to be able to pull CAI and exhaust parts over from the Cruiser. Guess not.

I also liked reading this part "The engines are designed to be turbocharged and supercharged".
