Glad you like it. There is a couple on your list i still haven't done yet. Might have to give you a shout if I have to do one of them. That's me too, but cost effectiveness is the primary reason. I don't necessarily want to fix something. But in this case it really was fun doing something new and different and most haven't done. Surprised there wasn't dozens of how to's on this here. Been a mystery to long. The cats out of the bag!

Hope it is related to this topic :S

As some of you may know from another thread, I am experiencing difficulties with possibly the turbo in my 04 PT Cruiser, so (if I find myself in the situation of having to mess with the turbo) my question is: Does anybody know based on proven experience and facts what would be a bit stronger (even if it is aftermarket) turbo to go with? In other words, what is an upgrade to the td04lr to get not too crazy performance?

Thanks in advance guys!
