However unless you are going turbo or swapping to a 2.3, I wouldnt have it on your list of must have bolt ons for your 2.0l. I know Tom (clicky) has worked on them before, he'd probably be able to give you a better idea of what to expect
Like Stephen mentioned above^^^^ Install a 23 or a 23 head w/ the 23 dual runner i/m,,,,

Usually the tune is added when you add the header. This is usually because after market headers do not have a provision for EGR and it also eliminates one (or two if you had three to start) O2 sensors. Also, once you are into the header after adding a CAI/Exhaust, it makes sense to have the tune as your stock ECU could struggle to provide the right amount of fuel/air with the increase in breathing of your motor. However, you can add a tune at any stage, just need to update tune after each mod to make the most of them.

Tuning is easy to install, just plug in SCT xcal into ODB2 port and it flashes the tune to your ecu. It also is a good idea to tune for 91 or 93 octane, will make the most of power/drive-ability. I dont suggest, imo it just hinders drive-ability and not worth the extra money. The two biggest tuners are Focus Power (sponsor on this site) and FSWerks, reach out to either, they will both be eager to help.

gregjg i've literally read through this entire thread and what im thinking now what i wanna go with is an fwerks stealth exhaust system, fwerks cool flo intake, and an obx header. im still confused on what tune i need to buy, or how to use it/install it. And is there any other parts im gonna have to buy in order to make thhis all work? i just bought a d20 sedan and really want to make it into something i can be proud of

Gladious [QUOTE=felixthecat;7776090]This^^^^^^^^ For '03-'07 20's/23's use the fwerks header or the obx & for the i/m cossie or the copycat. Before a i/m throw o pr of cams on board.[/Q

god dam there shorten everything so us normies cant keep up.....

andy way I'm thinking on the weapon-r for the headers ...and the cossii for the I/m and question abolut the cams .. FSW has them and cossii valve springs .. do u think those springs will be enough?

As for headers, FSwerks and OBX are used the most often.
