What are the biggest bang for the buck mods?

I see a lot of folks using the 180 t stat to cool the motor down. I see a lot of exhaust changes and B&G tunes. Does anybody know a local sf bay tuner, or is B&G it? Any other expert recommended mods for performance/appearance? Will the 08s have a leather dash board/ interior leather option?

Do the snorkel mod and K&N drop in. 12 horsepower (dyno proven) for like $50 bucks. Sweeet! B&G is only for 06s at this point in time.

The best mods for the money, aside from spray, are T-stat, Fan mod, K&N drop in w/ hacked snorkel. After that I'd have to say H/C and B&G.

Are there any guides to doing these mods? I can't find them...

One note with the tstat mod - with my 07 I was getting consistant CEL warnings with the 180 degree tstat. Not sure why other 07 owners haven't reported CEL - maybe because of the cooler weather here in Massachusetts??

Anyone know the part # for the 190 degree tstat - 1429?

First I've heard of that with a 180.

Did you make sure you plugged back in any sensors you may have unplugged? How are you clearing the CELs?

I clear the cel with the DashHawk. Whats cool about the DashHawk is that you can clear it before it actually show up as a warning light on the vehicle.

I didn't have to remove any sensors to install the stat.

Also, I had it in for about 3 weeks..
