the only v6 I have seen is one that Mother's Wax built. No turbo. Maybe someone was able to put a turbo on one too but I don't see where they would have put it.

From all I have read there will be NO V-6 for the PTC, at least not until the redesign, projected for the 2006 model year. It is my understanding that D/C considered a V-6 but decided upon the 2.4L turbo because in order to get a V-6 to fit under the PT hood major redesign work was needed which would have compromised the the PT's retro-modern styling which has made the PTC so popular.

Camster,

Your friend might have seen a V6 Turbo, but it's not from Chrysler. Anything is possible with the ole mighty dollar as you can see by this Hemi 440 stuffed under the hood.

[8]~CREWZIN, im not to good on big blocks,[B)] but dont the plugs on a himi go threw the valve cover?[:I] and yes, I agree, with a big enuff checkbook, any thing can happen.[}]

any how, he said it was new, from factory with the v6, I couldnt see DC doing this and dont know if I belive him. I thought maybe the car lot(dealer) got a little creative.

[8)][8)] <-- heh, cool, we can even drag each other on the forms now.....

Kammler68, Definately not mine

GTCamster, Your right. Hemi's do have the plugs thru the middle of the valve cover (I knew that...just wasn't thinking) Took the picture from another site and added the word "Hemi". It did say it was a 440.

Chrysler did "STUFF" a Viper V10 into a modified version of a PT truck. Take a look:

"STUFF" would be a understatement.
its good to know 10+ years down the road, when my mill is woren out, I can play a bit and put in a monster. A cummings sure would be nice on fule, can we guess @ 40-50 mpg?[?] ....so, i like to dream a bit
