I'm interested in the Phantom grip. Is this available for the PT? Is it a add on for the Manual?

Contact them direct.

I was a Dealer for them for years (no longer) and have used several and sold as many. Currently using one in my insane HP 1.6 02 MCS with a custom built Getrag 6-speed.

They come with a set of DRAG RACE ONLY (NOT I repeat NOT for street use) spring set that works extremely well for Drag Racing vehicles.

The important thing for success is to read and follow all the lecturer and instruction that come with the unit/kit.

I don't know that I'd say his engine mods are slowing him down. 106 mph is faster than a PT would run stock. So is 13.8. Most of the factory cars are in the very high 14's or low 15's. I think most mags had them running 15.3. I think C&D had the auto at 15.7@88. They are pretty sad though. I know that they were in the high 16's for old T1 Mopars, while Popular Hot Rodding got a stock T1 Daytona down to 15.3 just by launch and icing the intake.

Funny you say not to haze the tires. In the old (stock) T1 cars you had to haze them to keep the car on boost. If they hooked they would bog. PT's have better engine management, and I think the turbo spools way quicker, so I can see how that would no longer be the fastest method.
