Any plans for more go-fast mods?

Otherwise tuning via the narrowband will be fine, you won't really need a wideband.

Not really any big upgrades, just increasing your basic bolt ons that's really all, keeping it simple and decent.

[QUOTE=cobaltune;705674]keep it simple find an lsj downpipe...and you dont need a wideband on the lap it has one built in ....ask your local tuner[COLOR="Silver"]

I may just go with the LSJ instead for the downpipe and no need for the wideband, I kinda figured cobalts have them since our H02 already is one. Narrowband is first gen obdII stuff (16-18:1 ratio). Wideband is (11-18:1 ratio).

I have never used the LSJ downpipe, size diff from the supercharged one?
