Add Horsepower and Performance to Chyrsler PT Cruiser with K&N Air Intake System
The Chrysler PT Cruiser was updated in 2006 with a turbocharged engine that is
performance based and tuned to deliver 230 horsepower. The exterior has a new
wheel design and a new front grille. Sound insulation and new door panels are
also part of the 2006 upgrades.
K&N designed an air intake system, 63-1551, for 2006, 2007 and 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser models with 2.4L Turbo engines. "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 designed the tube for these intakes to accommodate front wheel drive and the transmission."

K&N tests have shown an estimated horsepower gain of 12 @ 5086 RPM with K&N's
63-1551 and 57-1551 air intake systems. K&N Engineers were able to get such good horsepower because the
original factory airbox and original filter were restrictive, said Heck.
These intakes are rotationally molded polyethylene Intake System uses a conical shaped
High-Flow Carbon Top Air Filter
that fits into the stock location. The heat shield isolates the filter element
from the engine heat. This in turn keeps a cooler air charge going into the
engine. A carbon top is used to add to the visual appeal of the PT Cruiser.
It takes less than an hour to
install this kit and
the lifetime K&N Air Filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is
required depending on driving conditions.
