The Ion is the Saturn's compact car line, sold in 2003-2007. Available in two body styles, the standard four-door sedan and a distinct "quad-coupé" featuring two small rear-hinged doors behind the main set for easier entry, the Ion was one of the bigger cars in its class, providing ample legroom for both seat rows and the impressive 14.7 cubic feet of trunk space. The car is propelled by a 2.2-liter 145-hp four, or a 2.4-liter 175-hp four with an Enhanced Performance package, via a five-speed manual/four-speed automatic gearbox. The sporty Red Line trim available for coupés comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four producing 205 hp and pushing the Ion to 60 mph in under 7 seconds.

"The product is very nice. It was easy to install, took about 25-30 minutes. I can feel a big difference between this and the stock air box. The only problem I have is my stupid check engine light keeps coming on after about a day of driving."

"It looks great once installed and sounds nice too. Response is a bit better, not exactly sure how much extra hps I got though, but still can tell the difference compared to the stock air system. Worth it."

"All I can say is wow! After I installed this on my '04 Ion Redline it woke up! I can feel a slight increase in HP, the supercharger screams and sounds awesome, and I even gained a little fuel economy! Installation took about 2 hours which was a little annoying...but I'm loving it!"

"Immediately after installing the K&N filter I noticed an increase in horsepower. The sounds of my engine was improved as well (It now has an awesome wine when RPM's are over 2k). After a few fill ups I also noticed a slight increase in MPG. Which is nice. The filter does all that it claims and meets up to all the guarantees."

"Easy install application for Saturn ion 2.2. A little extra effort in securing braked. Better throttle response and acceleration. Did I mention the sound?...Grrrrrrr!"
