Default GT 2.4L T Europe

Hello everyone, my name is Joaco and I am from the Canary Islands, Spain. I bought a year ago a 2005 convertible GT 2.4L T cruiser and I feel very proud of it, for what the car costs and what it is compared to other brands it is a great car.
I am not a mechanic and I do not really know much about performance but I do like driving and speed. Iīve asked in my local chrysler dealer about these upgrade kits and they donīt seem to know about them what so ever. For what iīve read, these are more for 2003 models. So, sorry If this has been asked several times and please tell me the link where i could find the info. I would like to know what I should do to get a notable increase in power and better performance. Thanks for any suggestion.

Here I am posting pictures of the machine!!

Welcome to the forum. The best thing for a GT owner to do for a notable increase in power is to add Chrysler's own Stage 1. You already have the upgraded injectors so I believe in only involves upgrading the computer.

Thanks for the welcome and the replies!

soonercruiser, I have everything stock in may car. The thing is that there are not many Ptīs where I live and If think mine is the only Gt around. This is why I am asking for help, the dealer does not have information and I donīt really want to leave my car in any mechanic. My intention is to order what Mopar/Chrysler specificly makes for this vehicle. Probably start with Stage 1 but I donīt really have clear if theres one for my model or if the European version has any difference that wonīt work fine if i do those changes. As I said before, I am an ignorant in this matter but would like to learn a bit more.

Hi Jcruiser, welcome to the board. I know that there are Cruiser clubs in europe. I am not really familiar with the differences between US and Euro cars. You should research local clubs. I am sure that there are some performance nuts that own PT's over there too that could help you out. Ultimately you could try to contact Mopar directly and inquire.

I would suggest that you either go to a dealer or go on ebay and purchase a new 2007 Mopar Performance Parts catalog, then you will have the proper part numbers and pictures of the upgrades you want, and then shop around for the best price, and you do not have to rely on what your dealer does or does not know. Most of the parts are universal, and will fit all the 2.4 turbos, Also you will need to give your VIN number when you order your Stage 1 kit and it will be programmed for your PT.

If you just need a few part numbers let me know, but you can learn a lot in a 5 or 6 USD catalog.
