Default 3.0-inch AGP Intake

Think I'm going to get the PT Cruiser AGP 3 Inch Intake. Is there any other intake with a 3 inch diameter intake? Most manufacturers don't say. Reason for this intake is I'm going to replace the stock turbo with something bigger and going with a 3 inch exhaust system.

Second choice might be the K&N Typhoon.

Third choice might be the Mopar intake.

What Have other people done?

With an open intake you'll suck hot air. On the dyno you'll gain 2-3 hp and lose double digit numbers of torque. If you are bound and determined to get an intake then get an Airade intake. At least they try to seal off the hot engine air. On my '03 GT I had a modified stock airbox and replaced the very restricting turbo to airbox hose.

Yep heat is a problem under the hood. What size are the pipes from the Airraid Intake? Hey is that AMX guy still making intakes?

Yep, he is still making Hot Air Intakes. The Airade is the same diameter as stock because your stock hose from the turbo hooks up to it.



The Airade replaces the top of the stock airbox and seals up against the hood to keep hot air out.

Put one of these on the end of the intake.

Now that's a good thing. I don't know if this is the same thing but it's called the K&N Apollo.



Not sucking any hot air there.

I got a hold of Jim the AMX Intake guy and he says that he still makes a 3.0 inch intake that will fit both the stock air box and an Airaid Intake enclosure. Meangreen does your Airaid enclosure allow you to cut the weather strip along the enclosure to alow cold air in, or does it draw air in from the fender well?

I don't have the GT anymore but you can remove a portion of the weatherstripping on the side by the Airade and draw cold air.....Yes, Jim makes a very nice turbo to airbox hose that I recommend.
