boost controller......... IMO don't buy it!

What is a safe boost....? The question is problematical and can not be answered for your personal PT Cruiser with any sort of accuracy without knowing about the complete mechanical condition of your PT..

Handle for what? 1/4 racing Road racing, top speed trial run at Bonneville?

I realize where you want to go but these question are dependent upon first and foremost the condition of your PT? What your intentions are to be with it and what mods you will be upgrading to support your goal?

Any answer can easily start a long arguable debate between members and lots of speculation and guessing if any would apply to your personal PT Cruiser. There is dozens of threads and posted information from various members that have upgrade their engines output that you may want to take some time and read.

The MOPAR BOV you are contemplating installing mostly for the sound effect and has never proven anything else on a PT. The boost controllers will do engine damage if you are not experienced in engine control management and have PCM access to change the mapping for such boost increases.

I am not trying to discourage you by any means but why not start a thread and tell us about your PT and what you would like to accomplish and then many of us can suggestions to help you get their?
