the go wing is available thru the accessories catalog from mopar. But it does not fit in the same location as the stock lip spoiler, so when you remove the old spoiler there are holes in the trunklid that would need to be filled, which is why people recommend getting a trunk from an SE and using that instead.

You really don't need a tuner to use a cai or an exhaust, you an install them and it will run just fine without one, but the tuner helps take advantage of the extra air and flow and can add more power afterwards.

The thermostat question you had is debated here repeatedly. If used, it will usually lower the operating temp of the engine, therefore making it run cooler which could add a miniscule amount of power to the car, hardly measurable, on the other hand, the car was designed to run at the temps the original thermostat came with for emissions and other reasons. I personally bought a thermostat but never installed it as i decided it wasn't enough of a change to really matter, i'm holding on to it for when i need to replace the original.

I also couldn't really tell much of a difference with the cai i put on, it is louder and sounds better, but doubt it gave me more than 10hp or so at most. and that is hardly noticeable without a dyno. Now with the diablo tune loaded, there was a difference you could feel, but even then I doubt it was as good as a real tune by an experienced mechanic with a dyno available.

GREAT advise on thermostats right there.
