Salvage yard!

You think I'm joking, but here's the deal. The 2003 GT did not come with the chrome accents on many later GT's and other editions. Salvage yards are full of PT's, so chances are you can find some of the cool OEM stuff:

1. Silver spoked steering wheel
2. Silver pedals
3. Silver door lock pulls
4. Silver side spears
5. Silver grill insert
6. Rear Spoiler (Standard in 2004/05 GT's)

Other items to consider may include:

1. "Premium" front door speakers from a 2001/02 PT (much better)
2. Sirius radio receiver to work with stock stereo
3. Silver fuel door
4. Rear cargo net out of a 2001 PT
5. Aluminum spare tire from early 2001 PT (usually made in 2000)

Also for a performance upgrade. The 2003 GT has an almost identical engine to the later GT's, but makes around 30 or so less horsepower. This is all to do with the computer (PCM) and the smaller pink colored injectors. If you decide to get a Stage 1 PCM it will bring you up to at least the hp of later GT's. But you will need the 577 cc injectors (black with blue band) from any 2004 or later PT with a turbo engine. The 577 cc injectors will be in both 2004 and newer GT's and Limited's and Touring Editions with the turbo option. And one or more these are sometimes available at salvage yards as well. As a side note, a Diablosport tuner is also available for the 2003 GT and will give you horsepower comparable to the Stage 1 PCM, but the bigger injectors are not required with the canned PT tunes that come with the DS tuners.
