Default Difference in valve cover gaskets

I recently changed valve cover gasket w/plug gaskets. Due to very oily spark plugs.

I bought a gasket set for my PT from Autozone.
2004 Limited Edition Turbo (Vin Code 8)

It was different than the one I took off.
The one I took off had a curve on the right side for a bolt to be there.

I went back the next day and I had him look up the other to see the picture.
The one it actually needed was for the Turbo (Vin Code B)


Has anyone run into this??
The vin code letter or number is the 8th one in the vin # correct?


Also could my turbo going out make this happen?

I just changed out bad turbo and changed spark plugs before installing intake back.

My guess is they gave you a NA gasket; the turbo lite (vin 8) and GT (vin G) should have the same part number gasket. Spark plug tube seals might be the same for both...

As far as I know turbos have all the same engine and tranny parts whether Lite or GT - only difference is the computer.

Well the one for the na has the curve in it according to autozone as seen is this picture. Which is the one I needed for my turbo.

Valve Cover Gasket | 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4 Cylinders B 2.4L SFI DOHC | AutoZone.com

Or is this for a turbo.......is has the vin code B??? But does not say turbo.


The gasket for the turbo (according to autozone) has the one without the curve on the right.

Kinda Weird!

So is my PT actually considered a Turbo Lite?

Up to 2001 all 2.4 / 2.0 DOHC heads were the same, w/o the bolt on the
driver's side.
PT and eventually all vehicles got the new head, not familiar enough to know
when on late models.

It seems they just list and old style gasket for some unknown reason
