Project El Cheepo v2.4
 
Decided I should start a project log. I have not done a thing to the PT in a couple months, But will be soon as spring gets closer. Started as a bone stock 03 GT with 314000kms on it. Pulled the seats and rear wiper motor, spare tire, muffler off and took it to an armdropdragracing.com event at an old airstrip. It was breaking down above 5000rpm and managed. 14.3 in the quarter, didn't get a mp/h reading, but was satisfied with the results with the way it was running.
I have since replaced the Plugs and wires and picked up a Diablo InTune. Now with the Auto Cars, the Diablo Canned tune isn't as aggresive as the Manual tune. 15psi is what it tops out at. Have not tracked it since as winter has settled in. I plan to do the LCA bushings and 3"o2 and catless dp as well as an email tune from Kevin once I get the datalogs this spring. I also want to send the pcm to him for a custom Transmission shift tune and try to lock out 4th gear. Here are a few pictures.

Fun thread.
Your ET is respectable.

You should post all your pictures of your PT! I personally liked them!:)

Thanks! I'm posting the pics from my phone, so I cannot even see the pics, I appologize if I post doubles lol
I was happy with the 14.3 ET the way it was stuttering over 5000rpm prior to the tune up. Cannot wait to get out with it this spring! Also cannot wait to trim more weight out of it too :-P

Yes, But a wheel spacer is required to fit on the GT due to brake caliper Clearances.
