Low budget upgrades?

K&N drop-in air filter, instant 50HP!

Nah j/k. Anyway, since you already have the exhaust, shooting for an intake would be a pretty good next step. What kind of budget are we talking here?

Well if you plan to spend $3k on a turbo soon.. don't bother spending money on an intake or header right now.. You'll just be wasting your money.

I have no idea where anyone is going to find headers for their cobalt. I have never come across them.



Sorry, couldn't help myself. But yeah if you are thinking about going turbo, check into upgrading the rest of the vehicle like mounts, clutch, suspension and brakes.
