just want to say hey and let everyone know the PT GT AUTOSTICK is a blast to drive. I lowered it 2" and it corners even better than stock. It is no race car but finally has the balls to match it's looks,IMO. I finally gave up on getting the dealer to install the rear stabalizer bar that the sticker says it has but is not on the car. some kinda tSB they put out...Owell, Chrysler 1, me 0. Peace out!

I'm waiting on these damn turbo upgrades for the SRT-4. I wanna be like a sheep in wolf's clothing. But this thing is SO F'ing heavy. LMAO! I've been talking with the Level-10 transmission folks. They say they can bullet proof the AUTOSTICK up to 600hp and make it faster shifting than a 5 speed. I'm still waiting for their 2nd reply back.

I've heard good things about Level-10 in the subie community, so I don't doubt their claim. I'm doubting that type of performance is cheap though...

Someone contacted Level 10 and was told they could rebuild the 42LE tranny (the tranny on the 2G LH cars) to handle 600hp and get a performance torque convertor for a total of $2962. Not cheap, but not outrageous either and well worth it.

Werd.. that's the price quote they gave me. Not sure I like how my tranny shifts, kinda slushy i think. But it is the 1st auto i have driven in 15 years, so who knows... Before i shell out that kinda ca$h, i'll need more HP!

I know the engine is fairly new, but there should be a ton of aftermarket stuff pouring out here shortly. I would bet the first thing to get would be a new chip to turn up that boost! :)

Granted they are different, but I think the shifting on my car (which does have Autostick) is pretty clean. Of course I have never driven a manual so who knows. :) Maybe put in a couple of bottles of the Mopar tranny anti-foam? It's suppose to firm up the shifts and I noticed a little more firmness in my shifting when I put in two bottles.

The PT Turbo and the SRT-4 are pretty sweet, but I'm waiting for the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 in AWD. :D

ASE chips told me they had a chip upgrade in the works. When i contacted them a months later they said no one will lend them their GT, so no chip upgrade :( :evil: Seems like soeone in Cali could step up. It's kinda like the 2 guys that are willing to make GT exhaust upgrades. One was in Ga. and one was in Fl. Way to far for me to help out, i'm in MD. There has to be a GT owner in those 2 states to step up and help out! PLEASE! LMFAO!

Regarding the missing sway-bar... Does the PT use independent rear suspension or the beam axle design like the older FWD Chryslers? The older FWD Chrysler cars with the beam axle has the sway bar integrated into the housing. They were usually 7/8th inch hollow tube welded end to end. You could drill them out and weld in a solid sized bar of your choice. If the PT has a beam setup, it may be the same way.

Yep, it's a beam axle. DC said they upgraded it?

We got ours last Saturday and we've been smiling ever since! Looking for some more power and hope to work with Exhaust Depot to help that out a little. Keep on Cruisin'!
