Default IM SO LOST !!!!LOL

ok so I have a 2001 pt that I would like to do a swap on but I don't know what the major diff is from the GT to the just plan turbo 2.4 I can find plan 2.4's every where but the gt motors and tannys are hard to come buy so my ?? is if I build a 2.4 turbo will I be happy with it and can it with stand the same beating a gt would. But if I just buy the plan turbo 2.4 I will rebuild it from the crank up like new pistons head job and so on thanks in advance

The 180hp turbo lite is the same exact motor as the GT But the PCM programming is different.

And depending on what year there are some other differences too, like fuel injectors, etc.

As far as injectors, the 2003 GT has the smallest injectors of the turbos, but 04 and up already have the stage 1 injectors. Some people have used a Srt4 neon trans, but the GT came with a getrag.

I think you would need a 5 speed PCM and a getrag transmision to make it work. Also you should get a 03-05 because after 06 they changed PCMs and went cambus. You should try to get a parts car so you can get everything out, like wire hardness, shift cables, axles, etc, etc

The internals are different on the turbo motor too as compared to the NA motor. Beefed up rods and oil squirters on the bottom of the pistons for cooling. Can't remember if the block has more reinforcing or not.
