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 RP-4660 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.
