Default What else can i do?

I have a base model 2007 PT. and i want to mod it but i read some where around here that base auto models can only get up to like 230-280 hp. i wanted to know what else i can do to make my PT Cruiser unique in my City of Laredo, Texas. the only thing i've done is added a short ram intake. i bought it on ebay for like 50$ it's just a little something before i upgrade. Does anyone else have any ideas?

That's quite a bit of power-
No matter the vehicle you're never going to have the fastest or close to it!
Someone always has less weight and more money.
But at that rate it'd be a pretty quick vehicle.

280hp on a base model? NEVER. EVER. Maybe at the crank, but not at the wheels. Good luck getting up to 230... put in a turbo and try, go to stage 1 and you'll grenade your engine. Base model NA engine cannot handle the boost, if you go beyond 9 lbs of boost you are going to start blowing things.

Emma, sell your PT and get an older year PT GT or Turbo-Lite..I'd say 2005 GT with Manual transmission.

2006+ and you've got to deal with the CANBUS system, not to mention that passenger side towel rack

Really though, I'm sure you'll be able to find an 05 for not much money. I recommend 05 because it will be equipped with the composite intake manifold upper/lower...one mod that 2004 and 2003 guys had to do for more power.

I love my towel bar

Lets not forget the 06 has 10 more hp than the 05.


At least I got the 5 speed tranny though

There's always paint, flames, chrome, big wheels and an Ahooga Horn. Lots of things besides trying to go faster to make it stand out.

10 HP a sticker!!

I know guys swap in SRT-4 Rods/Pistons- You won't have piston coolers (People DO machine them in) but this much is only money and a simple swap.

Ton's of aftermarket stuff- But don't get me as an expert, only read about it
