that's a great point. in '03, neither the PT nor the SRT-4's had a limited slip, but '04 and '05 srt-4's came with a LSD stock. another thought to consider, however, is that the 5-speed Getrag in the PT GT is actually tougher than the t-850 in the SRT-4.

the biggest reason that PT's are slower than SRT's though is weight. the PT is enough heavier than the SRT-4 that it gets whooped by it. i have a buddy with an '04 srt-4, and i have an '04 PT GT. both of us with the same mods (DS Predator, intake, not really anything else!) ran extremely close from a 30 mph roll. he did pull me, but 30 to 80 amounted to about a carlength--not bad, considering the weight difference.

to the OP, i'm guessing you got the tranny too?

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

ok, in that case, the tranny that you would have purchased with that motor, the 41te, is not the worst transmission ever. stock it is weak, but it can be built to withstand a LOT of power.

if you want more info on modding the auto tranny that came with that engine, go to PTCrew.com - Learn it or Burn it. and join. then do some searches, and look for the user THeir. he knows what's up with tranny stuff, and knows where to go to get one built that'll take whatever you wanna throw at it

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

Yeah, if you want to run an auto, stick with a built 41TE(aka A604) and run an aftermarket controller.

BTW, the fastest GLHS on the planet that I know of is SMP's, which runs in the 8's I believe(maybe faster), although it's with a TIII powerplant.

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

Is their an aftermarket intake made for the PT GT that outperforms the stock intake? I thought I read it somewhere like PT Crew but couldn't find it there lol

Thanks

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

the aluminum intake caused the early GT PT to make 215 HP. The intake starved a cylinder for air. The plastic intake, like my 05 has a wing inside it diverting the air right. So my PT GT is a 230 HP.

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

guys are adding the OBX to the 41 trans with the same spacer used on a 413. So I suspect a pelquin can fit.

The 03 up trans is pretty strong, you need the diablo tuner to turn up the trans electronically.

My stone stock 05 with auto on the 17s ran 14.9 this year.

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

How are they running the same spacer as the 413? The ring gear is physically thicker than the 413's, part of the reason the 604 is physically stronger than the 413.

the diff itself is the same thing apparently. There using the OBX 5 speed neon diff with the 413 spacer. Gearing though, ring and pinion doesn't directly effect whether or not the diff is the same. I looked into this when a PT GT guy sold the spacer and diff here, found other people over the net doing the mod. Still though with horrid tires and stock suspension my PT still hit a 2.2 60ft. But I would like to run my slicks and spin both in the water box.

Re: Srt-4 Neon/PTGT Cruiser Motors.

I understand the diff itself is the same, but the ring gear is physically thicker, unless it is back-cut under the gear teeth to get the spacing the same. I've never had one that far apart honestly, so I can't say for sure. This IS something I'm interested in, however!
