K&N Performance Air Intake System Gives 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Turbo 12 HP Boost
Performance Air Intake System for 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
K&N Performance Air Intake replaces restrictive stock configuration
When introduced in 2000 the Chrysler PT Cruiser was a whirlwind success. Timeless styling combined with modern convenience has created a fanatic following that transcends generations as well as gender. For the 2006 model year the PT Cruiser received a number of updates both aesthetically and under the hood. This included a new performance based turbocharged engine tuned to deliver 230 horsepower. The PT Cruisers' fan base, hungry for more performance, will certainly be satisfied with K&N Engineering's Performance Air Intake System (57-1551) for the 2006 PT Cruiser 2.4L Turbo.

"The electronic components under the hood were repositioned with the new design of the PT Cruiser," said K&N Performance Kit Manager Bert Heck. "K&N developed a new heat shield for this particular engine and redesigned the tube accordingly."
K&N tests, on our in house dynamometer, have shown a horsepower gain of 12.13 @ 5086 RPM with the K&N 57-1551 Air Intake. K&N Engineers were able to provide such impressive horsepower gains because the original factory airbox and original filter were restrictive, said Heck. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten airflow while providing outstanding filtration. This means engine protection with more power and torque when you need it.
This air intake system uses a conical shaped carbon fiber top high-flow air filter (RP- 4660). The carbon fiber top filter is used to add to the appeal of the PT Cruiser. This air filter captures harmful particles, provides more surface area, flows more air, and increases service life. It also performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. Improving the air path between the filter and the motor is the rotationally-molded high-density polyethylene tube. It offers the most flexibility in design and outstanding horsepower numbers. "It's a very straight forward installation" according to Heck and it takes about 90 minutes or less to install this system with simple tools. It is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty™ and is street legal in all 50 US states.
