Default Turbo to an 2001 2,0 gasoline is that possible?

Ok, at last we bought a pt cruiser
As the thraed says, is there a turbo to 2001 2,0 gasoline?
I know there is turbo to the diesel pts but is there one to gasoline motors?
Would be very greatful for input here so i can move forward some way with my pt.
Any other way to put some horsepower in my pt and i will be very happy

Stefan Sthlm Sweden
Thanks

Stefan,

There was a Mexican (I THINK it was a 2.0) turbo. It was in 90's and in Stratus IIRC
I never hear anything about it-

You can fit SRT turbo fold to your head, but that will be the easy part-
You'll need management for fuel injection-
Some guys use a RRFPR, but many, many people use Megasquirt.

The 2.0 pistons and rods are excellent for a non-turbo engine, but will only withstand a small amount of boost.
You will need custom pistons and rods for serious power.
Eagle makes inexpensive rods, Pistons are readily available, but prolly expensive.

Don't get me wrong, 2.0 is my fav engine, but for turbo charging you can get pistons/rods very easily for 2.4

So first off, think about engine management; worry about hardware last.

AND, all this stuff I've heard, I have little actual wrench time on turbo engines.
I have lots of time on megasquirt, though.

No, Stefan- I'd do engine management first.

Megasquirt is just the way with which I'm familiar,
there many other ways

A RRFPR (No experience here at all, I know they're expensive)

These guys have a basic fuel manager, owned a O2 sensor from them, was good, but no knowledge on their management stuff

It's really really easy to buy stuff and bolt it on, engine management is much more diufficult

Welcome Stefan, Uptown is absoluetly right about engine management being the most important part of what you want to do.

Fortunantly there WAS a gentleman from England, by the name of Simon that had a Hahn turbo kit for sale that has evevrything you need to do the install. I was part of his many Conversations over at The Crew and he assembled EVERY bit of info and materials that it takes do this install from start to finish. Hahns exclusive engine management system is included. Everything is brand new---still in the factory boxes. He even gathered all the gauges, etc. that would be needed. LITERALLY EVERTHING IS THERE. His priorities simply changed to a differant project. You would save around 50% of the NEW price by getting this kit from him.

I think most people here didn't show much interest because of the cash outlay that still remains when you buy a "complete kit" like this in one "swell foop". Plus the shipping would be a substantial sum to get it here to the states. You would probably save a bunch on the shipping since you're relitavely close?

I'm also sure that you could pick his brain as far as the "how-to" part of the install. He seemed to be a really nice guy when he was visiting all those times at The Crew.

Apologies for not replying earlier............PM sent

Cheers for the nice words Jerry.

Would have loved to have installed the kit on my Cruiser, but I now have a new project. (1972 VW Campervan)


The install of this kit should give you a safe 200bhp at 5psi, but you don't have to stop there.

A few extra bits from Hahn Racecraft and a look on this website in the Netherlands, who have forged pistons, rods, uprated clutches and camshafts,etc etc, should see a lot more BHP coming your way if you want to take it further.

Take a look here - Flatlander-IPP NL - Chrysler Performance Parts


Hopefully talk soon
