I believe you are right. But where is the 10hp the plastic intake is supposed to give? Since the 04 GT had 220 rating.

Yes 2.4L turbo with the plastic intake mani. Wondering if I need the bigger injectors '04+ that I keep hearing about.

Nope, no running over of feet.... My mom would kill me. LOL

Nope, No GT. must be a turbo lite but the Speedometer reads 140 and it has the chrome spears and 17" chrome alloys.

400 bucks for a comp? LOL anyone got an extra they wanna sell cheaper?

Ok so with the info ive researched this is the first thing Ivbe bought for the cruiser, http://www.ebay.com/itm/230958056259...84.m1423.l2649
Was this a good buy considering I want the sound no trealy looking for performance gains with this thing. Just worried about power loss.

Also looking into getting her HIDs, LED conversion (gauges and all), exhaust and true CAI later on in the future with the possibility of going FULL stage1

Anything you guys can think of that ive forgot?

Ok guys, now here something I've been researching and haven't got any good info on... when is the cruiser in boost? And when does she blow? I know she'll blow when I let off the gas but when does she hit boost under throttle?

Holy shit balls, guess who's TRYING TO COME BACK!


Long story short... in February of 2017, I had to put PeTer in storage because of outdated tags. I didnt renew the tags beacause he was throwing a code for "dirty injectors, spark plugs, or plug wires" (I forgot what code) so he sat parked until I could fix him. My parents gave me the money as a birthday present and I just order some parts, hopefully it fixes him and I can get him back on the road.

Any of the old guys still here?? Busted, Nitro?

Both Busted and Nitro are still around, though not as active as they used to be. I know Nitro is very busy these days with a job and some other things he's working on. Don't really know what busted is up to. You have a very nice PT. I'd love to see it back on the road. I sold my GT and don't have the money to get another PT. I would like to have another one, though. I miss the versatility of it. Welcome back.

Thanks man. It's not as nice as it was before it went into storage! I went through severe depression (not fully done yet) and just let neglected taking care of it. The thing was baby'ed TO THE CORE, and fun as hell to blast by people and let off the gas and scare the old snow birds here in orange beach. Lol
I hope to get it back on the road soon and get him back to tip top shape, but still without a job, its gonna be a long haul.
