I made it look good.
I made it sound good (inside).
Now, say you guys had 1000bucks to spend on your PT GT for performance enhancements, what would be on the shopping list.

my GT has nothing more than a drop in K&N filter & boost gauge (I think, )

1000$ Hmm... Well luckly I bought an 05 gt cruiser HO with the stage 1 already installed. I'de invest it in a intake to turbo pipe ( amx unit ), 3'' o2 housing, dp with a highflow cat ( maxxfab ), custom 2.5'' exhaust with a Vibrant Resonator routed to the side under the rear drivers side right before the wheel. ( I actaully know some one with this setup and it sounds down right mean!!) Probly have just enough green left over to install an upper hard pipe with a Greddy bov.

I'm looking for most bang for the buck so I'm thinking, the stage 1 kit and then like you say, inlet pipe and full exhaust, I want it to be quiet though I had a powerflow custom exhaust built for my ford Ka after I turbo'd it, it helped the system breathe but it was too noisy for me.

Anyone else? am I going in the right direction?

I think that would be the best route to take. If you read through out the Turbo fourm. That is what everyone ( pretty much ) did first. Stage 1 a nice exhaust sytem and a 3'' o2 HOusing will bring it to life!!!

Not what you might be interested in doing, but I'd put on a continental tire kit. (Problem is, with my style of woody panels, we're talkin' custom body work: can I get an EXTRA thou or two?!?)
