Default my new GT

A few weeks ago, my father asks me what I would like for christmas (he owns a chrysler dealership).. I tell him some new tires for my aging Jag would be nice (1997 XJ6). The next day he says "how about a set of new wheels?"..
to make a long story short, the dealers (and family) had a special deal if they bought a pt this month (they would get the manufacturer employee discount plus rebates). I took the GT home for a weekend to see how I liked it (2003, electric blue), did the paperwork that next monday This car is a blast!! They think it's the first time a Jag has ever been traded in on a PT
I mentioned to my dad I was going to order the stage 1 - a week later I walk in to the dealership just to say hi, and everybody's talking about my car They've never done any serious PT work that I am aware of (or even neon), but they are racers at heart and are as excited as I am about it!!

Thanks guys! They're actually pushing the srt stage 3 turbo
I'm an "old school" turbo guy, having cut my teeth on the buick GN's and a few "home brew" turbo installs, etc.. It's been about 8 years though, but I've tried to stay in the loop with the technology and can't wait to get carried away I'm already piecing together the parts for water/alcohol injection and an intercooler sprayer.. As soon as I pick up one of those in-car performance computers, the fun will begin!!!
