Default adding a little boost to my SLE 2001

Hi ,
i did a lots of reading on the website, and now im ready to add a little boost to my car.
I have a bonneville (DUH 2001 SLE, i know it'* not the SSEi Supercharge, but i like it hehe

I want to add the Intense PCM, but should i start with this? and with a SLE it'* worth it?

what upgrade do you suggest do to first ?

A cold air intake, or fenderwall intake would be a good start. By boost I assume your talking about a bit more power.

Do your air intake first. Your thermostate is easy, and cheap, get a 180* drill a small hole in it. Takes about 30 mins or so to do. Changing the PCM is easy, more or less. But if you do that you will either need to go to a dealer and have a case learn, or have another member near by that can do one. When you get that done you HAVE to tell them, just a case learn, not a flash. A flash will blow away you tune and your back to stock.
