A tuner is the best bang for the buck. You will want to talk to Nitro_PT. He can give you the laundry list and what to expect.

It kind'a depends on how serious you are about going fast and how much time and money you really want to spend. For me, I really like my Mopar Stage 1 PCM. It really adds a great deal of pep to the lower end for a nice sporty feel for street driving. This PCM is plug and play. And if you don't want to mess with anything more, this will turn the GT into all the beast you need for a daily commute.

Next, the best bang for the buck would be a tuner, hands down. The DiabloSport Trinity has several pre-installed tunes for the PT. But more than that, this tuner allows you to make your own adjustments and to load tunes created by others. If you are planning to add other performance items, a tuner is definitely a good place to start.

But if you are really wanting to go fast and are willing to spend lots of time and money on a nine year-old 3,200 pound PT Cruiser with poor aerodynamics, you should likely contact forum member, NitroPT. If you have a fairly solid vision on where you want to go with this, he can most likely map out a road for you to follow. For me, I will soon be installing a set of custom performance camshafts designed by NitroPT.

Other websites you may want to check out for PT performance include PTCrew.com and SRTForums.com. The SRT4 Neon shares the basic engine design with the PT GT, but the Neon can be stripped to be a 1,000 pounds lighter. And there is a wealth of information on that forum by those that actually raced their SRT4 Neons and by guys that specialize in performance parts for it, like Darell Cox.

More than that.
You're talking the bulk of the gains your going to be able to get. The rest are going to be smaller and more expensive steps. Talk to Nitro. He can lay out what to expect.
