Default PT GT Brake Caliper Question

Hi I am new to the PT Cruser World. I am replacing the front brake calipers on my 2005 GT. The 2 I bought from my local parts store look exactly the same, Except one is stamped TURBO as it should, But the other does not. I am not sure if it is the correct one or not. As I stated before, They do look exactly the same. Any help on this would be great.

Welcome to the forums.
The calipers are the same - EXCEPT - the GT calipers have a wider opening to fit the fatter disc on GTs.
Measure the side-to-side opening.
As you noted, the GT calipers have turbo on them.

Turbo-Lite is what Chrysler came out with in about 2004-2005. It's between the full turbo an the non-turbo. Same basic engine block and turbo as the GT but de-tuned to only put out 180hp on regular gas, no premium necessary. It can be brought up to full GT specs with a Stage 1 computer and larger injectors in the 2004 models. The larger injectors were put in all turbo models beginning 2005 (I believe, I might be off by a year).

Crewzin pretty well covered it.
the turbo came out in 2003 - the GT.
In 2004, they added another model - "turbo lite" - exact same engine as the GT, but computer controlled for lower boost, and runs on regular, and puts out 180 HP.
I ordered 4-wheel disk ABS, so I have same brakes as a GT as well, but not all turbo lites do.
