Is there anyway that I can get Ipod integration on my 06 without buying a new radio? I want to keep the stock look..

Where can I find a shorty antenna for my 06?

oh and I'm looking to get the car in best possible running condition.. I plan on doing a oil change, spark plugs, fuel filter, sea foam, etc.. What else do you recommend?

I have a ss/sc btw

thanks in advanced :)

I wouldn't sea foam it unless if ur having engine problems...if ur engine is full of guck then I would otherwise I wouldn't do it yet...but thats just me...not sure about the Ipod thing..as for shorty antenna u can buy them on ebay or make ur own out of ur stock one, there's a DIY on here (just do a search and u'll find it)

You can buy some kind of adapter for the Ipod at most audio places or Best buy, do not know how well they work though.

When you do the oil change put in a bottle of Engine Flush, its in a silver plastic bottle inthe oil section, to flush out any accumulated gunk.

Depending on mileage, a coolant flush and transmission service couldn't hurt.

Seafoam FTW! But you don't really need to do it until you hit like 75 or 100k, and then every 50k miles after that. Great stuff.

Absolutely. Did it on one of my brother's '99 Mustang V6 and it just plumed shit out, and another one of my friends from school's '00 V6 Grand Am. Tons of smoke.

Yeah I kinda figure it might be a little pointless to sea foam considering I only have 37k miles but I'll have to change fluids and spark plugs for now.. thanks for the input guys!

Is it on cobalt ss dot net? If it is just tell me what to search cause I'm a member over there too..

I have a 6 bucks iPod adapter. And cordless. Works better than my belkin adapter. Got it from ebay
Thats a good price.. is the audio good quality? what is the adapter called?

You don't need to change plugs for a while - they're iridium and don't need to be replaced nearly as often.

Trifecta, but wait until you have a few more mods under your belt, like the 2.4 intake manifold, throttle body, and exhaust.

Oh, no, haha. My bad, for some reason thought you were 2.2

Do intake, pulley, Trifecta tune, header/downpipe and exhaust

i believe alot of the ss/sc's are in the 240-260 range with the mods MP81 said and tune.

if you gonna tune it wait till your done with engine mods THEN tune it so you wont have to keep payin got a tune.

and since you have an LSJ im pretty sure you can find a local tuner.
