      I've recently acquired a 2008 Chevy aveo ls, I want to know a few things. 1 what's better short ram cold air Intake or a chromeintake? What's a recommended sound system? What'll give me the most bang in performance for my Buck? And last but not least what'll most benefit me in the area of better gas mileage and aerodynamics to accompany the performance upgrades?

      If you aren't a gear head, i would do cosmetic mods. You need alot of knowledge and time on this fourm to see what your getting in to when it comes to mpg/performance upgrades. THe aveo gets goo MPG, hard to see how it could be better than going full electric.

      Mods to get better MPG are numerous, but they don't have a gigantic effect. Best to do a bunch of small things like air up your tires. Blocking the upper part of your grill will give you some better aerodynamics. You will not overheat as you still have your lower grill open and your cooling system is designed to allow your car to drive through a desert with the A/C running. New Jersey just isn't that warm, so your cooling duct can be smaller.

      best way to improve MPG.. stick a brick behind your gas pedal so you can't floor it.

      Just be gentle with your brake and gas pedals.
