Question Missing Mods

Just out of curiosity, out of all the performance modifications available on the Ion what one performance modification do you notice that is not available for the Ion? I've looked around and for some reason don't find many options for chip upgrades. What performance options would you like to see for your Saturn?

alfkorda, have you done more looking into if that STS will work in an ion? I'm a prospective owner but after taking a test drive today..... daaaammmmnnn, it's about 5 miles from any front gear to the back. i thought the car held its own alright on the road, but the only way i could see myself with one of these cars for any extended period of time would be to drop an STS in there pronto.

the cavaliers have a 4t40e auto tranny, and have an auto trans interceptor that plugs in between the harness and the tranny and causes harder shifts for racing. I heard it causes the auto to chirp second gear.....it only works on the 4t40e though...

How about a header for $250, i took the heat shield off my header to see the design. Dang that is one POS header, a question i had before is.... Is the Redline Header the same as a 1,2, or 3 ION?

I know the one is a 2.2 and one is a 2.0 that doesn't matter its the same motor externally pretty much minus a big blower on the 2.0 But how the header bolts to the exhaust is the same. You think anyone with a redline can take a picture of there header for me even with the heatshield on would be cool. my e-mail is korax234@yahoo.com thanks.
