Plus, again. He has the 2.5L, so I'm not sure if that would be the same thing.
This post/info=my opinion
it would be a LOT of money and work to get what you could have a lot easier and cheaper with a 4.0L or stroker 4.7L swap. you'd have more power with a V8 or stroker 4.7L than with a turbo 2.4L.

Funny: Will it fit in my Jeep?
Dont normaly get involved in this stuff, but as I have experience with Dyna jet Dynos, I have to say that this is a really silly statement.
You don't need to be running a 1/4 mile race to get great benefit from using a dyno to tune your engine

Isn't the SRT-4 turbo an EvoIII 16g? I'm looking at putting one of those on my Suby, it's a fantastic turbo. I don't know if the PT Cruiser uses that too, I imagine it should. Either way, hilarious thread, keep fighting.

I know what an EvoIII 16G is, but I also know it's a very popular turbo. I swear someone told me that's what Dodge used, but a quick search says otherwise. Anyway, you're right, it's a TD04, a TD04LR-16Gk according to wikipedia.
The PT is a transverse engine. The exhaust manifold will bolt directly to a TJ, but the turbo will not fit, due to it hitting the firewall. Air Sierra had an adapter machined to flip the manifold upside down so the turbo mounts in the front. The turbo must be re pinned so it oils correctly. The stock ECU is good for about 12psi of boost. The stock injectors will handle 3-4psi quite nicely. Air Sierra has part #'s for bigger injectors to handle more boost. He has around 20k miles without any issues. My turbo build starts as soon as I finish installing my new plow on my Dodge. I have right around a grand invested in parts for this mod.
I would disagree that a mod that nets around 225hp and 245lb/ft of torque and over 20 mpg in a Jeep is "pissing in the wind" and a waste of time. However, things are supposed to be bigger in TX, so I guess 4 bangers are frowned upon. Maybe some research on this mod would change your impression, but maybe not.
That is correct. I have spoken with him on numerous occasions about this build. He is seeing about 22mpg on 37's with 5:13 gears. 20K miles, no problems and he seems pleased with the performance gains.
