Default I just have to ask

What is the engine code for the 2002 PT cruiser? What other vehicles uses the same engine?
I am trying to find out what performance intake manifold I can use on the PT cruiser. Like the one from a Neon SRT4??

No other intake manifolds really fit do to the lack of space in front of the engine on the PT. You can put the PT turbo intake on with a little work. That will give you a slight gain as the runners are shaped a lot better.
I have some of the parts to do the swap on mine, but have run into other issues that had to be taken care of first. I will probably do the swap in the spring as I still need to round up a few more parts. The hardest thing to make work is the EGR tube on the '01 and '02's. The rest of it is pretty much a direct bolt on...

Do you or any one know what the engine block code is or even better the head code is?
What I am thinking is to find or make a intake manifold and move all of the throttle body forward, and redirect the radiator hose maybe making more room.
The gains for putting on the turbo manifolod on that significant or is it just measured by the butt o meter?
