Cold air intake? Keep the OEM box and modify it and drop in K&N filter.

Nobody makes a true cold air intake for the PT cruiser, because they ALL suck HOT air from the engine. So the only way to have cold air coming to the engine is keeping the stock box, remove the "guts" and open the intake part to 3"

... or make the tubing yourself of course. The modded stock box though is the best option otherwise.

Airaid does it uses the bottom part of the stock box and seals when the hood is closed. Sometimes you can find them cheap on ebay.

I had that in my wife's N/A and the rubbing edges eat away the hood liner
