Default HEMI IN A PT?

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?

Here's another one from the PT's in Paradise show in Virginia.







...and Chrysler stuffed a Viper engine in one....

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!
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.

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.
