shouldn't have no problem supercharging, there's plenty of NYS people (i think) with FI added to their 2.2 and they are fine. you won't have SAI since you have an 05 and SAI would be your biggest issue if you want to do engine mods

Yeah Andrew would know. As long as it passes emission tests it should be ok though

OK cool I didnt think we could cause NY has similar emissions laws to California. Its probably best to buy a used 2.2 l61 and rebuild that engine with stronger internals and new coolant thermostat and a reinforced headgasket lucky for us those like to go pretty easily

Also I found a used 2.4 intake manifold are they really worth it ya I understand that using just the intake manifold alone you don't need a fun unless you do a tb with it but I don't want my take offs to look like grandma taking the kids to church I know you get like an 8-13% gain in HP at mid- high range powerband but I'm looking to see what others say
