    ahh. stay away from the CAI and the BOV. I am not sure how they engine acts now that it is a 2.5L, but I know the 2.0L do not really like those, especially the BOV when using stock turbo and EM. I had an HKS BOV and it sounded great but after doing some reading in the forum, decided to take it off and see if i could tell a difference and it did seem to drive better under hard accleration....kinda miss the sound though.

    Many thanks for the heads up. I haven't really read too many of the other threads yet about mods so, ya.

    save your money and definately don't get a CAI. Like the other guy said, not sure how it'll do on the new 06's but I'd stay away from cai's until proven otherwise.

    As for the bov, no point in getting this either, as it'll just waste more gas. People get it mostly for the sound.

    THanks!

    Nope, he has a Saturn Ion Redline. The supercharged version of the Ion. We haven't raced yet, but he is convinced that he can beat me. We'll just have to wait and see.

    with so much about the 06 being unknown it's pretty hard to say.
