HEMI IN A PT?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I know, its been talked about before. Just can't find where! I bought the 2001 trickcruiser Yellow Panel from Mike a couple of years ago. The only thing I have done to it use DELIVER out of it and upgrade the wheels. I now have 46k miles, and want more performance. Anyway, anyone done it? Rear wheel drive?

I've always had chev's for my hotrods, even a Model A Ford with a chevy. But I would NEVER put a chevy in my PT!:lightbulb:
I just want to know if anyone has been through the process and see if they would do it again! Being an old school hotrodder, I already have a 9-inch Ford to narrow. Just want some pointers!

FAR OUT!

That's Cool!

I found a section where a Turbo can be added. Would this render the life time warranty null and void?

I'm sure it would. Since Chrysler had the sense to build-up the bottom end of the engine to take the stress of the turbo. Adding one yourself to the stock non-turbo engine does nothing towards longevity.

OK, see if you can click on this link for a V8 PT Cruiser.

You're killin' me! wow
Talked to Mike yellowpanel about the one he built. He said it is way more work than he would recommend doing.
I might as well build a streetrod, at least there would be some resale value. Unfortunately, I don't think you'd get the money back out of a PT.
