Default Starting to fall for the Pt.

I have an 04 that belonged to my old man, shes already got a new head and a few bits here and there, but im really wondering what i should start to do to help improve performance? I want to keep it now since its starting to grow on me.

If it's a GT there is a lot you can do. If it's an NA then just drive it. Not much to do to improve performance. Either way have fun making it yours.

Deep thoughts


Pt is not a race car
Pt GT is not a sports car

A Pt is a whale

A lowered GT is a whale on skates

Pt GT has more power
Pt to sixty in an hour

A sports car it is not
Love it no matter what

Try a good squirt of WD40 (penetrating oil)... Shifted the tar off mine quite easily. Good luck.

Stage 1 computer up grade. Nitrostick cams Thumper performance head. Deablowsport tuner. Excuse the spelling. The first will take you from 180 HP to above GT levels. But you will be required to run high test.

Engine
The Nitrostick cams are the first cams designed for the cruiser in years and are ground by crowler cams. It was designed by NitroPT with low end torq. as the primary goel. Avalible through Thumper Performance. The new head and intake is worth about 50hp
