Default How to start ?

I m thinking buying a 2004 GT, and I would like to know :
In first I don't want to do the aesthetic but I would like to get more HP, and of course good brakes, steering, suspensions

What ll be the best way to start to upgrade the engine of my future PT ?

If you can give your experience, of that I shouldn't do .

thank you

Well, if you are like me and looking just for a easy mod that will increase the power of the car, and also give you the satisfaction of modding your car, then either a Stage 1 ecu or DiabloSport tuner are probably the two easiest ways. You will get a noticeable increase in power and torque from them.

The DS device will give you similar results to the Stage 1 computer, except you would not get the updated shifting of the Stage 1, since the DS does not control the transmission portion of the ecu. The DS is further adjustable though, for future tuning, where the Stage 1 is not. So there are pros and cons to both. You can decide what is more important to you. Of course if you have extra money, then you could get both and have the benefits of both.

Hey myckee

I have already the DS, but I didm t try it yet, I want change my suspension, brakes and few other parts first.
And I don't need that the DS control the transmission, because in france there is only manual gear box.

At the end I would like to upgrade to stage 2

thank you for you comment

There has never been any data that shows the TCM shift perimeters were ever changed in the PCM STAGE 1. Keven @ SykeTunning a has the ability to adjust the TCM control and has compared the STAGE 1 showing any changes over a stock PCM. Please contact Keven for more information about this! That way it is not simply second hand information from simply members like myself.

Pippov You should invest in a POSITIVE STOP SHIFTER if you really intend to be playing with your PT Cruiser for performance fun.

Contact Modern Performance or go to a SRT/Neon forum and read up on them.

Oh okay well its good you have the DS and good that you have a manual trans too. They are much more fun! Now it will be simple to buy, and upload into your car, a stage 2 inspired tune from Kevin at Syked; or some other vendor of your choosing.

If you are thinking about a shifter, I highly recommend Maddog short throw shifters. Not only does he install adjustable "positive stop" plates as mentioned by the other guy, but he can also reduce the 'throw' of the shifter. I have two 50% reduction shifters from him here on my cars, and they are awesome. You can see some pics of it in my build thread.

It will limit the throw of your shifting so you won't destroy your transmission.

Most of the time it is the 3/4 sycronizer that gets damaged from over shifting which can also damage the input shaft and much more.

*Maddog is the one to get one from. You should contact * Chuck Gregory talk to him about one specific for your needs.!!!


When you get one it is very important that you
Read the instruction carefully and follow it exactly!
Maddog Shifters


Mykee I would give you a like but.....seems I am the other guy now maybe not this time!
