Welcome to the forum Adam.

The ONLY supercharger that I know of that was made for the PT was back in 2001 and 2002. Haven't seen any around since then. You can add a Turbo but it takes lots of cash and even more time than it's worth. We tell most PT owners with the non-turbo charged vehicles that it's a lot easier to trade it in and look for a PT that already has a Turbo.

Sorry, but if you need more "power", you should have seen what the N/A PT could do before you bought what you have. It's a "cruiser", enjoy what you have.

here you go...
He is doing a project right now.

If you limit your total boost the NA engine will be fine with the power increase up to 30% from stock. That computes to about 50hp over stock. I think a stock PT is 130(?) so 180 is safely doable.
There are cheaper ways to make 50 hp though!

Maters makeover 2.5

ok yes you can boost a NA but really all that work ---- all the money----- and all that time----- do you really think anyone is going to be happy with 50 little horses???? no really ???? cause after all that work thats not a good return what is that like 5psi Boost???

I can add some Noz to my na if I really wanted to id say it can handle a 50 shot of go juice and not come apart the tranny will not hold up real long btu it will work for awhile
heck maybe even a 75 would not tear it up

To turn a NA into a GT is simply not worth it to the normal guy who works for a living sell it trade it or whatever and go buy what you want and leading someone on and saying sure you can do it thats not a good thing

You may read this twice, or even thrice,

But I agree with Nitro, and double down 50 HP is ALOT

Google search shows stock PT N/A at 150 hp and 167 ft lbs. 50hp increase would put it right between a GT and a turbo lite.

If you can gain 50 hp with an N/A build at less cost than a supercharger kit and still retain streetability then a traditional N/A build would be vaiable. I have no idea if a 50hp N/A gain is doable?

Without NOX of course.

Hey you did not completely read my post...ease up I hear what you are saying!
Please carefully go read it again!

My quote in post #4 "There are cheaper ways to make 50 hp though!



When cars and the running gears are designed by engineers there is a over load figure that is used when designing the parts. The general rule is 40% power level increases without to much worry. I am conservative because we are not usually computing this percentage on a new drive-train so I always say 30% power level increase is usually safe figure. There are mechanical wear exception to this naturally.
I believe when the op starts finding out the cost of such an adventure then idea's of what is wanted will be different.
