New with a Cobalt

Hi, I just bought a 05 Cobalt ls 2.2 auto and love it! I was wondering if there was anything I should know about the cobalts. I am looking to get a GMP catback exhaust. Is that a good exhaust? Anyone have any pictures of it installed, or any sound clips? Anyways I know how to search and will do so so if you have any info to share with me I would appreciate it. Also how are the 2.2L performance wise? Thanks, Jeanna

Performance-wise......depends on you, how you drive it, and how you build it.

Welcome to the site...The GMPP catback is a good exhaust...personally I don't think there is anything special about it but it is good...As for performance of the 2.2....pretty good for a 143HP econo car...

Welcome to the site and congrats on your purchase. I've heard nothing but good about the GMPP exhaust, but I don't have any personal experience with it. As for performance, it's all relative to your experience. If you are coming from a 1979 Ford Pinto then the 2.2s performance will be stellar, if your last car was a Ascari A10, you're going to be disapointed.

Either way, just enjoy the car and have fun because that's what's important.

Had an LS but manual before I traded for the SS/SC, I liked it, has potential to put decent numbers but that depends on your wallet or purse lol. Congrats and enjoy, just do not ride up to SS's, especially an SC and think you are just as fast. Not really saying ya would but I have had a few think they do, its annoying as hell.

I have the performance exhaust on my SS and love it, I sure it may sound alittle different but its a good choice. I would suggest an intake aswell than maybe work on getting it lowered. Eibach Sportlines well give it a very nice drop and stance, definitely improve handing and the look. If ya need a new set or, should I say, a slightly used set of LS wheels and tires I got 4 in my garage cause I put different ones on the LS but never got them off before I traded in. If you would like a set of SS headlights from an '07 I got a set of those too haha, in great shape because they were on the car for alittle less than a month. Difference is they do not have that orange lens in them or whatever. Just putting it out there

Enjoy the car!

welcome love the username :D, and congrats, pics are always nice
i wouldnt call the 2.2L any sort of performance car, very limited aftermarket and still w/o tuning so your "uber" mods arnt going to be performing the greatest. GMPP parts are nice, especialy if/when the cops want to give you a hard time, all you have to do is point to the chevy logo on the tip and say, "what? no, thats factory." and smile
but you are going to loose some low end (torque) with prety much any sort of aftermarket exaust out there, and IMO, the 2.2L's low end is it's best trait.

good luck and happy modding
