Ok then is there anyway I can make this 01 any powerful like a different engine or something? then what i said? Cause I've been told multiple times that the 01 engine is not upgradeable at all.and even if you put a fortune in it it'll only make 200hp Which is not a big difference for the price. any ideas? Cause ei don't want to buy another carPossible? Probably. Feasible? Not really.
Check with the local laws with the DMV to see if this modification would allow the car to be registered and pass state inspection where you are.
I would be concerned more about the electronics and NGC vs SBEC cam/crank differences than mounting the engine.
You would want a donor PT turbo or Neon SRT-4 with an intact engine compartment wiring harness and under-hood NGC components.
Seriously, you are better off purchasing a used PT GT.
