    And another thing for you newbies who just blew in on the turbo bandwagon: in 2008, the non-turbo 3.2 was the only engine available. So bashing it against your 2012 turbo polestar is ridiculous.

    Stop bashing the 3.2

    So, back to the original question, the naturally aspirated 3.2 performance upgrade. For roughly $1,000 USD, you can get the RICA tuning. By looking at their website, you can see that what you would...

    OOPS, sorry, didn't see the previous thread on AM radio quitting all of a sudden. I guess I'll have to go to the dealer on this one. However, if anyone has any other info, I'd appreciate it.

    No, you're going to actually have to turn the knob. You can put the "Auto" control on so you don't have to be troubled to adjust the fan speed.
