My car! almost done... updates:

ok so i have been doing many things to my 06 cobalt SS SC (G85 package) over the winter... took a few steps forward then a few jumps back... when i blew my motor testing it out.

but now she is about done, motor and body wise.

so here it goes, the plan: stage 4 kit from C/A, meth injection, some body work and repaint, CAI, Exhaust,lil interior work, lil trunk work... and some other small touches

new blower, ported out and rebuilt


2.6" pulley down from the stock 3.3

stage 4 kit, computer, tensioner, stage 2 belt, pulley, 60# injectors, with harness, and 2 step colder plugs

ported intake mani...

hidden meth kit

put back together

Hurst!

and the test run... video was stopped right before motor blew.... we ran it to rich and then leane dit out to fast... we first washed the walls, then melted down the piston while forcing over 20PSI of boost past the rings cousing them to break off

not even near full throttle either

well i got a SS so my struts are lower, but i have the Eibach sportline springs with 19" ADR rims and the tire size is... 235/35/19 any bigger i would have hit the bottom of the lower spring brace on the strut.

and thanks
