Default Black fenders and gt front bumper 03-05

I'm in search of black fenders and a gt front bumper. I'm not to sure if there is a difference between the gt and other model bumpers. 01-05 models.

The 03 thru 05 GT uses the same style bumper as the "Turbo Lite". So we usually call it the "turbo bumper". There's actually several different models of both the turbo and NA bumper. The primary difference between the turbo and NA bumper is that the turbo bumper is smooth while the NA bumper has the depressions on each side. Also the shape is different right below the upper grill and the lower grill is longer and more round on the turbo bumper cover.

Here a comparison photo. The turbo is on the right:

You can use the NA bumper cover on the turbo. But they fasten differently up under the radiator because the bracket is a little different. Modifying his doesn't appear to be hard and has been done many times. However, you lose that unique turbo PT look if you use an NA bumper cover. It should be noted that the 2002 Dream Cruiser often came with a turbo bumper cover even though it was not a turbo car. So when you see a new turbo bumper covers for sale online, it will often say that it fits 2002 thru 2005 models.
