Their spark plug wires are a good idea - way better than stock, but save your money on the other stuff

I thought Stage 1, 2 and 3 kits were for Cruisers with a Turbo only?

Stage 1, 2 and 3 were only for the Neon Turbo. Stage 1 Computer and injectors or just the computer for 2004 and above) only is for the Turbo PT.

Everything you said, except the distributor (the PT doesn't have one) and your PT will be running at it's best. If you want to turn it into a tire burning, stoplight to stoplight racer, either come up with lots of cash or trade it in for the Turbo model.

You mean add a turbo to the non-turbo PT? It's been brought up hundreds of times and 99 out of 100 the bottom line is, it's probably easier and cheaper to trade it in and buy a turbo PT. Lots of parts and a lot more labor involved then just dropping the turbo in. The computer, wiring, plumbing for just a start.

The Turbo PT also has a different (stronger) engine to hold up to the Turbo pressure. Not that it can't be done but try a search on this forum on adding a turbo.
