You should get it weigh. I just did both my MIN and the PT Cruiser.
If you do and show yours I will post to compare.

That's a good idea. I'll have to wait until I finish putting it back together though...

15.00. It is California licensed commercial scales to within 20lbs of accuracy.

I actually did a 4 corner on the PT Cruiser a year or so ago. It is one reason why I dismiss and try to "steer" some members using long time used suspension upgrades like "super Slammers springs" and large solid front and rear sway bars on a PT Cruiser. After knowing the divided wieght some of my make shift skid pad testing became more understandable why some things just dont work well on a PT cruiser.

A simple ,practical gauge can easily verify most all the inform,ation I have posted in this thread.. BTW I also recommend to get one for your PT Cruiser.
[B
ULTRA GAUGE[/B]
UltraGauge OBDII Scan tool & Information Center

PT Cruiser Ultra Gauge mounting
PT Cruiser custom mount
So I ordered the Ultra Gauge and a K&N. I agree that the looks are cool even if the gains are minimal. Once I get this and the exhaust installed I'll look into a tune and call it a wrap. I'm going to do some cosmetics as well so that I can open the hood at a show...

Thanks again for the advice!

Hands down the FIRST performance mod you should make on any turbo car is to get aftermarket intercooler piping with a flange for an aftermarket BOV and then duct tape a duck call to your new BOV. You gain like 5000hp. I did it to my SRT-4 and broke the sound barrier, as well as pissed my pants laughing at the looks I would get from people.
