Upping the Air Flow/upping the Fuel Mileage- But, is There a Way to Do It with an 08
So some of us on here are restricted By ARB regulations. Myself I'm hit by the CARB regulations (California Air Resource Board). I've hunted searched and bugged the day lights out of tons of car site modification specialists and have so far found absolutely ZERO CARB legal intakes or exhausts for my 2008 Cobalt LS 2.2L 5spd. Which is more than exhausting. So my hunt has finally found myself here saying, IS THERE ANYTHING FOR MY CAR!!!!
This all started with the basic personalizing of my car. which unless we are talking about body kits and rims we aren't talking about much. I thought to myself oh a shift knob might be nice... as we all know that ones not happening short of some serious fabrications or installing a short throw shifter.
fortunately a gentleman on here showed us all a neat way to personally modify the shift boot. I threaded mine with blue thread since I have the flash blue paint job. Looks sharp. then I thought well how about since I have the manual locks I could install a couple of those stylish knobs. Again, thank you chevy for your wonderful unconventional engineering choice. so I got a set of those blue valve stem caps (I'm gonna freaking do something to personalize my damn car by this point in time). Then I think hey a good old fashioned intake and muffler. I can do this myself for less than five hundred bucks and feel like I'm not driving a stock car... ARGH!!!! CHEVY!!!!! REALLY!!!
So guys jump in help me out and give me some advice. Is there anything I can do as far as an intake and muffler, or cat-back, or even a shift knob?
