Default New 2006 PT Cruiser GT Vert owner here......

Hey all, I guess this is a good place for introductions....

My wife and I bought a "third car" for her daily commute.....

We just got a 2006 PT Cruiser GT convertible, black ext on gray leather int, 30k miles....in GREAT condition....what a find!!!!!

Our other 2 vehicles are (mine - 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Special Edition with quite a few mods <Baja Rack roof rack, Ricochet Off Road Armor Skids, PIAA 520 bumper mounted fog lights and PIAA headlights, Husky Liners, and ARB Recovery Gear>) and (hers - a 2008 Honda Odyssey Touring edition, loaded).

We have had the PT for a few days and I have the first oil change, Trans filter/fluid change, plugs and wires change scheduled and I have ran through 2 tanks of Sunoco 93 octane gas and a new air filter change.

We have Raptor directional UHP tires on it and the turbo is QUICK!!! The tires handle WELL!!! Very fun

I look forward to chatting with you all. I am very active over on the fjcruiserforums.com board, under very similar name....PA-NC Cruiser.

Anyway, glad to be "part of the PT family"....

Thanks for the welcome!!! Always good to hear from the first new friend on a new forum......

I will hit up Candyman, but I am very "detailed oriented"....more than my wife cares to acknowledge....... I am teaching my son WELL though.... (and he is only 4.....) LOL.... BTW, I LOVE owning "niche" vehicles....(the vert GT for example)...I also love talking "shop"....so, feel free to just BS anytime!

Welcome to the forum, sounds like a beauty of a PT. When you get the car tuned up just don't let them, if your going to the dealer use the stock wires because they suck.

THANKS!!

Ok, good point....I want to buy MSD wires....and the dealer will install them....but I want to know if anyone has the exact part # for the MSD wires, on a 2.4 L turbo GT? I am ready to buy, just want to make sure I have the right part #
