Tuning

Today, I saw a ford focus that was sent directly to Shelby to get it tuned, with engine software, vented breaks, new wheels, suspension etc. I was wondering if there are any companies that accept a "donor car" to completely tune your Cobalt? Another example would be Hennessy or Roush. I've never heard of anyone doing this to Cobalts and wondering if there is a such thing?

Nope. St's are still new. Cobalts are old.

That focus ST you saw will probably be a "demo" use only for display at a car show. It may give Ford an opportunity to show the public of what potential the ST can do. May also hit this years' SEMA.

.....Or you may have saw a car built strictly for Jay Leno

Unless your vehicle is one of the breeds used for "Fast & Furious"...you probably won't find an entity to beef-cake it up. There's normally a reason for these "donor" mobiles. You can call around to some local shops and see if they'd cut some cost for advertising, but best to plan/form your own upgrade/mods.
