Default looking for a Pt a GT

Hello everyone, i am new to this section of the forum i own 3 PT's
all na and have 2 at home, i was going to install a turbo on one but close to 100k they are getting old so i am looking for a used low miles pt cruiser gt

I know they make them turbo from 2003 and up, but what is the best year to buy ?
and what are the best options ?
or what do i need to look for to get a good GT vehicle



I have turbo experience years ago i drove a 1992 gmc typhoon turbo v6 and i still own a toyota supra 6 in line single turbo
i was going to use extra turbos from the supra for the Pt cruiser

thank you
for your help and any input you can give me

Well, injectors got bigger '04 on - for late '05 on they came up with composite intake which gave more HP...
Depends if you like design of '06 on, too.

It's rather expensive and complicated to add a turbo to any vehicle, make sure you want to invest that into a vehicle that may not be equal in the value. I'd look for one with it, as I was when I found it. I know of a blue '04 L-Turbo on a local lot.

OK

So nothing before 2004, i like the the new model body style but they are plain
every 2006 and 2007 i seen so far have something missing like rear drums or no power mirrors or no lock switch
i drive a limited at the moment with all the options, it looks like Chrysler was trying to save money on the newer models

03 really isn't a problem with S1, as the injectors are changed

Those prices sound awful, in my opinion - but my 03 GT w/ 12k was for sale for $8k.

I have a 2005 PT GT convertible for sale, autostick, 62k miles. The composite intake manifold is a plastic manifold that replaced the metal one sometime in 2005. I believe it gave 10 more horsepower.
