I don't understand. They are different styled cars. There is hardly any aftermarket support for the GT any more. You may have to have one custom made.

you can take a dremel tool and cut out the bottom grill so the IC shows.

It will show alright, BUT rocks and other crap will beat the crap out of it without some kind of protective screen. Then it will look ugly with bent up fins or maybe even leak. The SRT-4 has a protective screen.

even with the stock grill you still get rocks beating up the stock IC on both the PT and Neon. theres no way to fully protect it without decreasing airflow. its just something you have to live with. plus with the stock grill it doesnt even fully expose the stock IC anyway, only 3/4 of it gets airflow.

Yeah, but you can protect it as well as you can. Without any kind of attempted protection the IC will definitely get damaged. If you've ever seen the fins messed up on a radiator you should know how ugly it looks. My srt is five years old and the IC is not damaged. Up to each individual owner, though.
