Default plastic intake cover

I have an '06 PT GT that is factory stock....

I have noticed in a lot of the engine pictures on here , that the intake cover was removed....

does this do anything? or is it just for the looks?

thanks
JT

The intake cover (vanity cover) is just for looks. Chrysler put them on for the first couple of years and then started to deleted items inside and around the car to save money. The vanity cover was one of the first to go.

When i had the N/A intake I used the small cover for shows. After I installed the plastic turbo intake I used the large cover for shows. The small black plexi cover is a separate cover that simply sets onto the large green cover for a change of pace at shows.

It will hold in a little more heat in the intake and as a result have slightly less power (not enough to notice though). Most performance minded remove them for that reason.

I didnt order the cover when i did the alumn.-to-composite intake mod, but after setting up for car shows bought one as i think it looks much nicer than the ribs everywhere.

Liked the first two covers, but not the one with PT CREW on it.

Looks like you did a lot of expensive mods on your na PT. Have you dyno'd it?

The cover invites heat soak that you'll notice at the track.
