Default Actual HP?

[8D]Now, I have read several places(online, mags, forums...etc) that the Convert PT GT 2.4 Turbo H.O. is 220 HP and 230 HP. 10 HP is a pretty big difference for this size car. Has anyone actually dyno'ed their car to officailly see. Thanks.[|)]

Correct. And turbo Lite is 180HP, all years.

In case you care, the difference is mainly due to a redesigned composite intake manifold and revised PCM programming to better utilize said manifold. As an aside, you can order the composite manifold for your PT, should you need it, from Haynes Speed Shop. It's good for about 8hp+/-, and a building block to more flow inside and out....
2004 PTGT - Stage 1 and a bunch of bolt-ons, even more bolt-ons waiting in the garage!

How come "The People" in the First Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Fourth Amendment means The People; but "the People" in the Second Amendment (ratified in 1791) means the National Guard (created by an Act of Congress in 1903)?
