Well, what you bought so far won't do a damn thing towards your goal so just about anything else might help.

...and don't forget to save a little for your citations. Hope to see ya on the road.

There are lots of ways you can go:
-Stage 1 PCM if you can find (this is the building block for many other mods)
-Or DSP handheld tuner
-new plugs and wires will help if not done already
-Airbox Mod
-3" O2 housing, 3" DP, and rest of exhaust
-Hardpipes
-Plastic intake if you currently have Aluminum
-Stiffer WGA, Mopar S2 is good
-At this point you will need wideband
-Sticky tires
-Boost control
-After you have done all this you will need to replace LCA bushings, motor mounts, axles, clutch soon or possibly auto tranny as you will start breaking stuff!
-Bigger Turbo, injectors, fuel pump
-The list goes on and on

Go to PTCrew, check out The Mod Bible and learn!

Hey their GTcruiser23,

First off, welcome to the Forum,

The expensive way, get a Hemi.

The cheap way, find a really big hill.

All kidding aside, if you are really serious, and want to max out your motors capability, I would also try posting over at PT Crew as they are more gear heads, and many Members over their actually use their PT's on the track. In fact they have an entire section dedicated to time slips in the 1/4 mile. So I would be willing to think many of them should be able to point you in the right direction.

If I were to point you to one Member in particular, it would probably be Captain Cog as I know he has beat Vette's outright in a 1/4 with no trouble at all. (sorry their Crewzin, no disrespect)

I actually have a friend who is trying to sell his PT with Hemi here in SO Cal for real. Here is a pic of it, and it is in the classified section on this Forum.



Though I myself am kinda more partial to this one. Better color, and I recon it might have a bit more seriousness about it, or at least looks the part.



After that, just make sure you keep it off the street and on the track, and try your best not to hurt yourself in the process.

That's my two cents anyways. Go easy, and I'll catch ya later.

Candyman
