Default Tourng NA to turbo swap considered

What am I in for?
Have an '04 with rod knock, found an '06 or newer complete car FS, looks like a touring as well, can't see the left side badge.
Is this doable?

It would be very doable IF the second car was a 2005 or older. But because it's a 2006 2nd Gen PT, the PCM and wiring are different.

But the mechanical parts are almost all the same. The easiest was to do with what you have is probably to find a third 2004/2005 turbo PT donor car and get that PCM, wiring harness, SKIM unit, sentry key w/cylinder and the Autostick shifter and instrument cluster if it's a GT.

Right now, turbo PT's are only worth slightly more than N/A PT's. So if you had your N/A PT in good running condition, it's possible to sell it and use the money to buy a turbo model. That's the easiest and most cost effective solution. I've done this myself.
