ok heres the problem my car is a 98 eclipse but the engine is blown on it. so my temperary fix is a 99 mirage. when i got the music on the lights dim with the bass. i dont need to buy a ho alt because that would waste my money seeing im gettin a new engine for the eclipse. will a cap be a fix for the dimming until i get the new engine for the eclipse?

no, a cap won't fix your problem. if your getting a new engine soon, just don't turn it up so much, then get a HO alternator for the new engine and you'll be good to go.

A cap will add to the problem in a lot of situations, putting more strain on the alternator. It's a good way to ruin your battery, too. :-)
