Not different at all from any other car; bolt ons.

In the end, it will always be slow unless you have Alot of money which in that case, you can make any car go fast.

Your killer is weight (and only 150hp). Take out the back seats and drop the spare tire (yours if your over 160lbs)

The non turbo PT is a poor platform to try and increase performance. You can throw a lot of money at it and it will still be slow. Enjoy the look and the ride and don't waste money on something that it will never be. If you really want more power then sell it and buy a turbo model.

And the point to a high performance street machine for racing is ????????????????????, all it will do is end up costing a lot of $$$$$$$$$$ and causing you to just to say you out ran another car.

Don't care what you drive, or how fast, there will always be one a little faster. just say......................
