It's built into the PCM.

And why would you want to? You have a mechanic you want to subsidize?

You can't super chip a PT.

You are talking Europe. We don't get the diesel here. Here you can't just chip it as the chip is intergrated into the pcm. In the states, for the non turbo PT, you can send your pcm in to have it reprogrammed, but there is no such thing as switching out chips. Now, just recently, they have come out with a hand held programmer that allows you to change the tune, but that is for the PT turbo only.

Thanks, but no problem. My wife has a '04 non turbo PT and is not willing to let me modify it at all. I had a '03 PT GT that was modded to 280 hp. I now have a Neon SRT-4 (same turbo engine as the PT turbo) that is modded to 350 hp so I really don't need any help in that department. I've been to Florida before and it is an entirely different world, especially different from Oregon where I live.
