Default 2006 Question

I have an 06 PT GT and it seems that my version is a bit rare.
See the pic.....
By that I mean its a HIGH OUTPUT turbo.
Am I correct or what?

Horsepower has been increased on the high output turbo, now rated at 230 horsepower (171.5 kW) and 245 lb.-ft. (332 Nm) of torque; in addition to higher numbers on paper, the engine produces power over a broader range and has several reliability enhancements.

Yup High Output Turbo!

They discontinued the GT overall in 2007 so yeah its a bit rare having the new body style with an engine that lasted a couple years.

215 hp (160 kW) @ 5000 rpm and 245 ft·lbf (332 N·m) @ 3600 rpm (2003-2004)
230 hp (170 kW) @ 5100 rpm and 245 ft·lbf (332 N·m) @ 2400 rpm (2005+)
