Default Engine Difference

What are the difference between the
N/A 2.4 PT
High Pres. 2.4 turbo and a
Neon SRT-4 Turbo

Like internals and stuff

Because there was a car show this past weekend and they was also a SRT-4 club meet and there was a few with straight 3" exhaust and those things sound really really mean!!!!!

I want my moms n/a pt to sound like that, but I doubt it will

Peace
Steven

You mom's n/a PT won't sound like that. A n/a PT would be very loud. A turbo quiets the exhaust down a bit. The SRT 4's with 3" exhaust were probably running a 3" downpipe, a race pipe (no cat) or maybe a highflow cat and maybe a resonator.... I like your Grand Prix. Looks very nice

Internals on the GT and SRT-4 have been beefed up from the NA models.

SRT-4 and GT engines are the same. Both have stronger rods than N/A PT. The 180 HP PT Turbo is also the same, except programmed to run on 87 octane vs premium.
