Question Yay or Nay? Adding as SRT4 badge to a PT GT Turbo?

The main reason I have been seeking a PT Cruiser besides its styling and ideal space interior-wise is the fact that it has the SRT-4 style engine setup (2.4 turbo with intercooler). I wanted an SRT-4 Neon for years but nowadays so many have been beat on that it'd be ridiculous to spend money on one in my eyes. PT's, however, specifically the one I'm getting, don't have the tendency to be beat on, at least in my eyes. Therefore I ask, would it be wrong of me to put a SRT-4 emblem below the 2.4L Turbo/High Output badge on the passenger side of the hatch?




Please vote and explain your reasoning. Thank you in advance. As of now I do plan on doing it just FYI.

Hey ,why not its all about doing your own thing ,If you have to ask every body else for there opinion whats the point of having your own.Nelson Mandella said that.
No but I understand wanting to get feed back before you do it but in my life I have regreted some things because I let others make up my mind for me .Now If it feels good I do it.fairdinkum Ray Pteazer.

No unless you have done it up.. Sorta like this one..

Took cue's from the SRT line and did a PT how Chrysler would have done it.
Scoop hood since almost all SRT's have a scoop.
Wheel look is taken from the Charger
SRT's have a stance that is meaner so its lowered and beefed up sway bars
Beefier brakes
Stage1+ other goodies to make it scream
Custom Exhaust so you can hear it scream
Then he tattoo'd its butt with the SRT script from the same year 03 SRT4(neon)
Rollpan was taken from the GT concept car. PTeazer just happned to make it in real life so it was used.
This car has made people who don't know believe that Chrysler did an SRT-PT.

Being loaded into a closed carrier truck since when we moved up here, it couldn't loaded on to a standard car carrier. Not enough ground clearance.


You can see here its been cleaned up in the rear and it stands lower than the one its parked in front of - my 01 at stock height. The third PT is my GT and its lowered as well.


Feeds an airraid intake - into all metal intake and intercooler pipes.

That thing sure is VERY nicely done! I do plan on going Stage 1, adding the SRT boost and A/F gauge on a pillar pod, installing the BOV modification all within the next few weeks. The suspension work would have to come later as I'm buying this car as a reliable/fun d.d. and trying to focus my money towards restoring my 1989 Shelby CSX-VNT... I have a set of Koni's that need rebuilt for it before I'd even think about spending money on the PT's suspension hahaha Plus, the fiancee would kill me if I start tearing this new car apart!

Go For It! If it makes you happy and you like the style, it's the right thing to do.

Still would be a wannabe. Ricers do the same thing. You can't throw a badge on and wish it were so. I've got the real deal so I'd laugh if I saw a PT with a SRT-4 badge. I think going stealth is better. On my modified '03 GT I took off all of the badging so my GT looked like a normal PT base model. When I had a V8 for lunch they were really embarassed to be beaten by a PT. Now my '03 GT was fast, but no way could it take my modified '05 SRT-4.

Though I do remember cutting an Stage1 badge off the back of that PT..

Matt's was done in stock form as if Chrysler had done the GT Concept car which would have become the SRT-PT but sadly chrysler didn't have the balls to do it..

Back in '05 nobody knew what a Stage 1 badge meant. Even people in my PT club had no idea, especially with no GT or turbo badges. Even embarassed V8 drivers had no idea. I know you took the badge off cause you said you were being hassled by ricers wanting to race, but they want to race anything with wheels. So Jo, when you getting your GT back on the road?

Chrysler didn't have the balls to do it because 95% of PT turbos had the weak 41TE auto tranny and the tranny would never have held up to SRT power levels. Matt's GT is tastefully done and I like it, but if you want to call it a SRT-4 concept then it reminds me of the SRT-4 Design option they had for the Neon. Dual pipes, big wing and a hood scoop (fake in this case). Fooled lots of people, but it was a fake. The SRT division had nothing to do with it. Still, it's up to the owner what badge(s) is on their car. If they pull up to the real deal, though, and the SRT-4 wants to race they better politely refuse.
