K&N Engineering, Inc. has made a 63 Series AirCharger Intake Kit (57-1550) for the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser 2.4 liter non turbo.

K&N test have shown a horsepower gain of 7.17 at 5004 RPM with the 57-1550 Air Intake. "We were able to get such good horsepower because the original factory airbox is restrictive," said K&N Performance Kit Technical Development Supervisor Kirk Swanson. "We designed the heat shield around the existing parts in the engine compartment for a nice tight fit."

K&N's 57-1550 rotationally molded polyethylene Intake system uses a conical shaped High-Flow Carbon Top Air Filter (RP-4660) that fits into the stock location. "The heat shield isolates the filter element from the engine heat," said Swanson. "It helps keep a cooler air charge going into the engine. We used a carbon top on the filter to add to the appeal of the PT Cruiser. It's a very straight forward installation."
