Ive never tried it, but I suppose it would work. Its kind of like using the SRT turbo. You would need the manifold and the PT catalytic converter.

I have. I used it with a srt-4 cat.
As for where you can get it, the usual spots, ebay/junkyard/sometimes on .org.
Try www.car-part.com

It made the exhaust sit a little lower and I had to dremel away some of the bracket for the power steering reservoir. I can't think of any other snags. The bolt pattern is the same for almost all the bolts but the upper two corners, o2 sensors reach.

Oh, I didn't try too hard to get the heatsheilds to fit, so I didn't put them on.

'97 black ACR coupe- #3 - Scrappy
'96 black coupe- #4
'97 magenta coupe- #10 - 13.379 @ 101.07 mph
'04 SXT mtx - #45 - GF's DD
'96 ACR
'95 Astro Van
'11 Chevy Express
'02 atx - #48
'98 Intense Blue R/T - #49
'04 SRT-4 - #50
'99 Intense Blue R/T - #51

52 and counting, when will it stop?

Yeah, if you're looking for anything you can feel get a real header. If you want a cheap replacement manifold or an alternative to the OE style get the PT.

I put a pacesetter on after using the PT cruiser manifold and felt an increase in power. I think it's safe to say you'll gain less power than using a pacesetter.

Which hardly does a thing anyways, I just got a Fast Fabs header today (apparently the last hand built one they ever did before folding lol) and it looks 10x better than my Kirk does lol. Can't really do a apples-apples comparison on power tho cuz it's by far not gonna be the only different part when I put a 2.4 back in, but it'll definitely haul ass.
