I Win!

So my friend was borrowing the family car, a 2004 Mustang (40th edition), and I wanted to see how i matched up against it. As some know its at 190hp, my cobalt is maybe pushing 170-175hp. We ended up racing down a back road in his neighborhood. I think we got up to about 70-75mph and at the end i came out a nose a head of him. He claims he wasnt trying, but then again this isnt the first time I've beat one of his cars and he said that. So my point is, cobalts are pretty quick for a 4 cylinder lol. I no longer give the title of a "slow balt."

I think this should be a randomness type post...but if you have a similar story of your "slow balt" beating one of these "bad ass" muscle cars (or another car that should be faster), that so many people make out to be cool and soop up.... feel free to share :D

Well im just guessing on the 200hp, but it will be around there...i hope.

Im going to a get a CED intake manifold, 2.4l...Then im going to get a trifecta tune.

Right now I have a PPE header/ dp, dc sport exhaust, and a k&n intake.

I raced with a jetta GTI 1.8T I gess that car has around 230hp anyway we started at 10mph to 100mph and I was taking the lead slowly. I only have a muffler so.... I would say that for a 4cylinder its fast. I also raced with a civic Si 08 , I won. and a acura rsx typeS but infortunatly when I reached 130mph my engine limited me :( so he got me.

The ecotec generally isn't going to be around 200WHP without boost or juice unless you sink major money into an N/A build.
