Default Swapping steering wheels?

I'm not a fan of the stock steering wheel in my 03GT. Anyone know if a srt4 wheel and airbag will drop in there and not throw an airbag error code?
thanks,
Mark

Good question, I've thought of doing the same thing. Might need to keep the PT airbag module and swab it into the SRT4 airbag cover; not sure. One thing that could be an issue is cruise control; might also need to notch part of the airbag cover to fit the stalk. Hopefully someone else will know for sure...

I know somebody that put a Viper steering wheel and SRT4 seats on it.

If you read the guy's page he had to fit the PTGT airbag into the wheel and modify it to work with the PT Cruise Control stalk.

Yes I know, but it looks and feel great...specially sitting on those SRT4 seats.

Man, those seats are nice. but he mentioned they sit even higher than the PTGT seats. I'd like to be about 2" LOWER!
Seems like looking for a Startech steering wheel is the easiest way to go.


I think I need to get used to this thing....I've gone from a 911SC to this PTGT so it feels a little truck like.
