Default turbo..

I been reading about some of the stuff you need to do if you have the "Turbo" model, etc..
(Great site by the way... I see MANY hours spent here in my future)
Anyway.. since we just bought a new (2007) PT how do you kbnow if you have a Turbo or not. The owners manual is "generic" and covers all the different models produced.
I know this is a silly question.. but figured I better know 'for sure'..

Oh I guess I should of said it's a "Touring" edition.. don't know if that matters or not

Odds are that if they didn't stress to you it was a turbo when you bought it, it isn't, since a turbo costs more.

If, when you raise the hood, You are faced with an object on the center of the motor that says "TURBO", then you have a turbo. The word turbo is about a foot across.
