I'm new here, just picked my Cruiser up yesterday.

'04 GT, Electric Blue. First 60 miles have been great.

I've wanted one of these since it's inception, but I'm so glad I got a Turbo.

I'm from Omaha Nebraska, looking for a local PT Club too. I travel around the country doing my one man comedy show ( This is the new business car.

Am I going to customize it?
Of course. Already ordered some Eibach lowering springs, tinting the front windows, getting a flame job (what color should I do? Hmmm.....).
Looking for a good dual exhaust system.

If you guys have any advice, I'd love to hear it!

No advice to offer but I can congratulate you on your purchase. I just picked up my Cruiser last night too. Not as nice as yours but it is a beauty. It's an '01 limited edition in black with all the goodies. The wife gets to drive it though. Eventually I plan to get a GT for myself like yours but that may be a few years yet. Best of luck! Love to see some pics of it as soon as you get some.

You won't regret getting the turbo, I have had both and was tickled with both but the turbo is so much more fun especially with the great sounds from dual exhaust.

Looking for a good dual exhaust system.

I'd recommend the BTG (and I have a Bassani!). Nice, deep sound, and the best design out there. Look at it on thread:
Note how "Y" split evens exhaust from side-to-side. All stainless.

nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
