Default V8 in PT Cruiser

Greetings from St. Petersburg (Russia)!
PT me for a year.
I like the car, sell it I do not want to.
But the 150-horsepower enough for me.
I think in the future to replace the V8 engine.
But I want to put PT on the chassis with rear wheel drive.
Has anyone done this already?
How much it can cost in the U.S.?
In Russia there are no experts who can make the chassis for the PT.
Thank you in advance for your reply.

Welcome to the forum.

Has it been done. Sure has. Even the Viper V10 was put in the PT by Chrysler for a one-off concept vehicle.



How much does it cost? Lots of rubles/$$$$, loads of time and expertise.

Here's a small block Chevy with rear wheel drive that was at one of the car shows.

Yes, I realize that this is going to be expensive.
I think in the states it can cost around 30,000 Dolar.
In Russia for $ 30,000 you can buy a new Ford Focus is not interesting.
Now I'm thinking to change your engine, because my death and put turbokit to get about 200 horsepower.
And I want to put on the chassis so as not to exacerbate body.
On the chassis it will be safer.

If 200 hp is your goal you don't need V8 or a turbo! You need cams, head work (maybe?) new exhaust and CAI. Maybe a reflash (that seems to be a little tricky on the N/A's.

But the point is, if that's your power goals your going waaay over the top!

In Russia, where the car put a big engine, strengthen the body.Here in this set BMW 4.6 liter engine. To reinforce this body.

Подбиваем итоги по кузову.
Кузов — финальная часть
Проект — БЕЗ БАШНИ — КУЗОВ! (наверно самое страшное, что можно сделать с машиной)
Do you have photos of strengthening the body PT?
