    Hey everyone! Been quite awhile since I posted here, just wanted to drop in and say hey [​IMG]

    Haven't worked on a car in awhile really. Messed myself up over the winter snowboarding so it motivated me to buy something NEW and fun B)

    (Went for that instead of the Boost Gauge on the pillar)

    09 Cobalt SS-Turbo
    RPD, Brembo's, LSD, Sport Seat Package

    No mods yet, but I'm working on becoming a dealer for a company that does flashes. The flashes are not detectable by the dealer, which is ideal for me. I got 200K/10yr warranty with the car! So I don't want to fuck that up LOL!

    I got rid of the Accord a lil while ago. I STILL have the motor I was going to throw in it sitting under my carport. Sold the other turbo parts to nootrac, Hey Matt!

    Went ape shit on the Subaru but it's taken me months and months to get shit done on it. Here's how it sits now:

    98 RS chassis, trans and diff, 02 WRX Motor
    20G Turbo
    Hyperflow Headers, 2.25" Up, Invidia Divorced DP, Custom 3" Turbo back
    PE 800cc Injectors
    AP 3" Inlet, Hyperflow Big MAF Housing
    CX Racing FMIC Kit, 27x12x3
    Tial KO 50mm BOV
    Perrin Pulley
    GM 3 port BCS


    Hope everyone is doing well! Busy'd myself with my family but things have slowed down a lil so I've been trolling the forums again :)

    I thought the Cobalt SS was supercharged? Or did you change it over to Turbo?

    The 08-09 are now Turbo and Direct Injection. Rated at 260/260 but they are def underated! A lot of people put down 235-240+whp stock. I ran 13.9 @ 103 bone stock!

    Wow, sweet. I'd heard good things about the supercharged ones, but personally thought turbos are better suited to small engines. Nice buy, and good to see ya back.

    I only get 3 gears at the track, I run thru the trap right as I bang the limiter in 3rd. The no-lift shift is FUN too :D

    The car is MUCH faster IMO in 4th and 5th gear, it drops 120-160 quite quickly on the highway!!

    supercharged ones are garbage. the turbo ones are way better.
