Default Just bought a 04 platinum.. got a couple questions

Ey guys, i'm the official new guy and would like some of your help. Well first my situation...... a couple days ago i brought an 04 PT Platinum Edition, and for the record i love it. But i just realized i don't have the 2.4HO under the hood , how would i go about making my 180Hp 2.4 a 220Hp HO 2.4. What i'd like to do is some how manage to get it to 220Hp then go after the Stage 2 or 3. Thanx for any help you can give me.

You knew ( i hope) that it was a 180hp turbo?
Easiest (but not for everyone) is to upgrade with Stage 1.
Course this has predictable warranty issues...or be happy with it for now, and upgrade later.
Enjoy it for a little before u start tearing it apart.
BTW congrats...

Stage I gives you 235hp (the GT model is 220hp) and possible warranty issues.

Have any pics? I have not seen a Platinum Edition yet.

What are the mechanical differences between the turbo lite and HO turbo? Does the 180HP have an intercooler? If so, is it the same size?

I am guessing here, other than PCM and injectors, that is all I can think of.

If the salesman told you it was H.O, I'd take the sucker back. Over here you have a few days that you can return a car.
