Is it a N/A or GT? I use an Airaid and it works great for me!

There's a whopping tiny selection for our 06-up PTs. Like stated, which do you have, N/A or GT? That'll narrow it down...to about 2...either way lol.

I just put a K&N gen 2 on mine. Works and sounds great.

As long as it isn't a turbo, should be no problem, but I have an '03 turbo, so have never looked at them (except to learn that I can't use them...). The factory air box is part of the PVC system, and also collects at least some of the oil from the air stream that comes from the turbo.

Stock air box w/KnN is best but you can use an aftermarket hot air intake with an added catch can if you choose.

That's what I have in my '05 - it is a good combo for all n/a Cruisers.
