How many miles on it? If near 100,000 - it's probably ready for new timing belt.

Just watch out for the fuzz... In Crewzin's jurisdiction he's likely to show you some love, everywhere else beware.... post pics !

The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

be aware if your cooling fan goes you're looking at a pretty penny ($500) to replace with a new unit. The '03 GT fan is different than all the other model year turbos and are sometimes hard to find used.
Synthetic oil and copper plugs only, imo
Njoy your ride <thumbs up>
