It just means that some people with the turbo version have a Mopar performance Stage 1 kit. Mopar puts out a performance package for the 2.4L Turbo engine. However, it is more seen in the SRT than the Cruiser, but still recognized nonetheless.

If I understand correctly, the stage 1 is kit in addition to the stock GT turbo?

Thanks

I don't know what it does for the GT, but the turbo lite
it gives it a 40 hp kick in the pants.

It could also refer to the Hahn turbo kit for N/A PTs

Stage 1 give the turbo lite a 60hp kick and the GT a 20 hp kick. I don't recall the torque increase, but it's sweeeeeet!

You can find out more about STAGE 1 by going to "Stage Turbo Kits" under the 2.4L Turbo Forums section of this board. [8)][8)]

Basically the Stage 1 is a new computer that replaces the factory unit. It increases boost, which increases HP and torque, but it also lets the boost, and therefore the HP, come on a bit sooner. It also tightens up the shifting of the automatic tranny for quicker, crisper shifting.

For the '03 models the upgrade includes new, larger fuel injectors. The '04 upgrade is just the computer as this model year came with the larger injectors as standard equipment.

Stage can be fitted to either the High Output GT engine (220HP) or the Turbo Lite (180HP) engine that first appeared in the '04 Limited Edition cars. The end result is the same for both engines though - 240HP.
