Default *Turbodude06's* The "Riddler" Project GT PT 5-Speed!!!!!!!

So I have always wanted to start one of these but I never end up keeping a car very long lol. With this car I've already had a little over a year now, and don't plan on selling it so here it goes......

It's a 2004 PT Cruiser GT, It was traded in at a dealership at 88k miles, but apparently it bounced to another dealer where I bought it almost 2 years later with 109k. It was owned by an older couple that pulled it behind their motor home. I almost didn't buy it because of that reason cause who knows how many miles are on the body. But when I took it for a test drive it drove like a brand new car. I was so amazed at the condition of the car and how it drove I bought it that day. I was actually looking for another 03-05 SRT4 at the time. This is my 3rd GT 5 Speed. I actually bought one brand new in 2007, it was an 06 that had been sitting on the lot for over a year. Not many people are looking for these turbo 5 speed models I guess lol.

But anyways back to the Riddler Project. First off I'm naming it the "Riddler" because everyone thinks this car is a joke until they hear it in person or see how quick it is. I'm going to post pictures of all the stuff I've done over this last year to it and I'll make a list of the mods and keep updating it as I go along. Hopefully this will keep me motivated on this car as now I'm no longer driving it daily. My goal is to have a 340-380hp and something I can take to car shows, anything from imports to old muscle cars. I love almost all cars so I would really like something that fits in everywhere.

Current Mods:
Tuned on HP Tuners by me
3" Catless Downpipe
3" Side Exit Exhaust
Modded factory air box
K&N Filter
Ebay Ricer BOV Plate
Eibach lowering Springs
Tinted Tallights
Black Housing Headlights
Yellow Tinted Fog lights
Intercooler cutout
Tinted windows 20% front doors 40% windshield
Booger shifter bushings
Cheap aftermarket radio(no name cheap lol)
APSX Wideband
SRT4 Boost Gauge
Pillar gauge pod
Ngk plugs & wires
HFP 255 Fuel Pump

This was right after I did the intercooler cutout, which I love. I have so many people ask me about how I turbo'd the car after I did this lol!!!







Tinted the tails. I use VHT taillight tint, then I buff them to be more smooth.





This is one from last week when I tinted the windshield 40%. I owned a tinting business for about 5 years.




This is showing the Eibach Springs and 20% front door tint.

This is my side exit exhaust, we angled it up a little and to the back. My buddy does exhaust said it would help alot with drone. And boy does it, the drone is better then when I had just a muffler delete out the back and it's about twice as loud now.

I actually sold my nitrous kit. I'm not a huge fan of it honestly, I like to have the power whenever and not have to worried about filling bottles up and stuff. The plan is to go big turbo/stage 3 turbo/or maybe just a ported, which I know won't get me their but should be quick for awhile.

Short 55-90 MPH pull I did the other day. This is up hill and it's running a little rich.

Another real quick 3rd gear pull I think like 4k-limter

This was my first one, got it when Dodge first had come out with the lifetime warranty. Loved this thing at the time they didn't have any type of tuning for these cars so I had an aftermarket wastegate. But after 14psi the car would through a check engine for over boost lol and it had a muffler delete and lowered.


This one I had not to long ago 2003 GT 5 Speed. but it was ruff to say the least. Faded paint, broken seat, bunch of missing peace's, bad turbo, timing belt snapped on me. I got tired of fixing it and i had twin baby's on the way. So I pretty much gave it away I sold it for super cheap.
