Cool I'm trying to buy a Pt GT - and beat a rx-8

Hi everybody! I'm looking for a pt cruiser gt 06+, I was just wondering what it would take for the pt gt to beat a stock 04 rx-8 standard (with a poor driver). I was planning on doing things like new plugs and wires of course, synthetic fluids which probably won't affect power as much as longevity. Also probably exhaust cat-back, a upgraded pcm or hand-held tuner, CAI. The reason I ask this is because my bro-in-law was really hating on PTs when I told him I'm gonna get one. So I'd like my PT to be a hair faster than his car, I don't plan on racing it but I'd really like to shut him up. He knows nothing about cars and thinks the RX-8 is the fastest thing EVER b/c of the rotary motor. He can't drive with the stick very well either. I'd love to show him the back-side of a PT lol.

When you do match up, please do it in a safe manner, like take it to the track.

For the 2004 RX-8:

0-60 mph, sec 6.4
1/4 mile, sec/mph 14.8/94.3

Shouldn't be too hard to show him your tail lights with a good running PT GT.

Yes - very good point - I should have said that, there is a 1/4 drag strip pretty near here so we will probably go on a test and tune night. His car is Bone stock! probably has the original oil filter knowing him, lol!
