Yes, the Ion Red Line is intercooled. It even brags about it in its ads. Yet, I don't think their intercooler would work for our cars. I am just guessing that it being only 4cyl. and DOHC that the intake manifold is completely different.

O yes, and I drove one. A little touchy clutch, very light but requires a lot of throttle. Anyhow, it was amazingly fast and a VERY fun car to drive. Stock it didn't have too much whine, but we can fix that!

It is the same vehicle as the Cobalt no? Or does the Cobalt lack the IC?

Its not the same vehicle as the Cobalt. they are on a shared platform. The chevy equinox and the saturn vue likewise share a platform, but they aren't by any means the same vehicle. The Cobalt is a much better car all around than the ION from what I understand, though I've never driven either.

What are the differences? Other than interior and body.

EDIT: By which I mean what makes the Cobalt a superior vehicle?
