Re: turning radius?

This is my second PT. I know what you are saying about the turning radius issue, but I got used to it. What I do like mostly about the GT is how the turbo pulls you thru traffic and helps maneuver...

Re: How Much Horsepower Loss....

You are right. I had a LT Turbo before getting GT. The gas mileage is exactly the same. The difference is I use premium with the
GT.

Re: Tire size on turbo wheel.

I was told by someone in Tire Kingdom that using a 245 tire on this wheel wouldn't work well. A side from the speedometer being screwed up, your 245 tire would wear in the center of the tread. The...

Re: How Much Horsepower Loss....

Also, I think another difference between the 180 light and HO is that the HO has larger injectors.

I use Costco gas here in So. Florida. It's 93 octane for the price of mid grade. The attendant...

Re: considering pt cruiser buy

I had the Lt. turbo and now the GT HO. I like the power of the GT but hate using premium gas. I would probably have gotten the Lt. turbo again had I knew then what I know now about gas prices. The...

Re: Newbie from chgoland w/questions

As far as your problem is concerned, I would run...

Re: Turbo Lt. & GT Turbo

Ceit, what you say makes a lot of sense. I'll continue to use premium that I buy at Costco. It's a dime or more less than the regular brands premium and still offers 93 octane.

Re: MPG does not suck

My Vette gets better gas mileage than my PT. The PT averages 20 MPG and the (automatic) Vette averages 21.5 for the driving I do.:confused:

Re: Engine Light On...Big $

When they called, they said, "The coil is gone and it took out the plugs and wires. The cost will be about $1,200 bucks." My mother had just past away, so I was in no mood to question him. The...

As I was pulling away from my house, the engine light came on in my PT. Took it to the stealership to have it checked out. They said the coil blew taking out the plugs and wires. Cost with...

Re: Strange Happening

I don't know why I didn't notice before that it had a high idle. I thought it was around 550. As always, thanks for your input.

Re: MPG Sucks!

I put on Borla duals and K&N filter and get 20 MPG city or highway with my '05 PTGT. PT cruisers seem to be all over the spectrum with gas mileage.

Re: Cat back systems: Are they overated?

I have the Borla duals on my PTGT. They sound nice and look great. The power boost and gas mileage gain is insignificant.
