you can check me against the Turbo section of the forum, but I think you're totally out of luck. Different engine.

The PT GT, turbo lite and Neon SRT-4 have the exact, same engine. The SRT-4 has different intercooler and plumbing, different intake manifold, different throttlebody, different 5 speed tranny and different pcm programming. The na 2.4 L engine does have weaker internals so you won't be able to boost past 8psi.

If you can, you should get a complete engine, or at least a short block, the oil pump, pistons, rods, & crank are all upgraded from the n/a engine, and the block has oil jets to squirt oil into the cylinders beneath the pistons, there is also an oil cooler at the filter, and the water pump is also different as the turbo is water cooled.

Totally agree. It would be much easier to do.

Either way, pull the engine from the wrecked one because you will be using most of the parts.

He makes an excellent point. I'm lucky that my wife is supportive in my hobby, but that's not to say I can blow a lot of money and buy everything at once. It's taken me three years to get my '05 SRT-4 into the 12s and to corner like a slot car. If you want to do this right and have every part you'll need then having a whole engine at your disposal right then and there is the way to go. Talk to your wife about picking up a used GT turbo engine. Make a deal that you'll sell everything left over to make back money. Hell, get a second job to pay for the engine. It's going to take you several years if try to piece meal this together without your wife knowing what's going on. If you are still hell bent on piecing it together then get a hold of Bob Stockum here index He is the make your own PT turbo guru.
