Pretty hard. Try a search on the forum, it's been asked a hundred times before. Short answer, its' easier to trade your PT in for a turbo model.

What year PT do you have? Auto or manual? are you able to do all this work in your car?
Anyways, most of the time is easier and cheaper if you just trade your car for a GT.

Really, unless you want to grenade your motor, swap the entire engine and tranny out, get you a G288 Getrag tranny like the GT has. Otherwise, you're just gonna kill what you got.
