Stage 1 Kit for 2.2L?

Thinking about upgrading my cars stock internals and go for a stage 1 upgrade to it, forged internals, forced induction... upgraded clutch, transmission... etc... does anyone know if all that work would be worth it for a 2.2L N/A XFE model?

If you build your motor, you might as well turbo. I'd suggest piecing together a turbo set up than buying a kit tho

Banker is the one to talk to about that. Also just so you know, the only difference in the 2.2 and the 2.2 XFE is the tune essentially. It's all the same.

Alright... I kind of figured it was the same engine... just tuned different... looking into stage one upgrades to the Manual trans... so that once I get the forged internals and forced induction the trans won't blow due to not being able to handle the added power

You'd be suprised at how much the trans can actually handle. The clutch honestly should be the only thing you need to upgrade trans wise. I was running fine over 500whp on my stock trans for my ss. It's hard to break a trans honestly, and your 2.2 even fully built won't make enough to break it. Unless you just want different gearing and that's why you're upgrading.

The stock trans has taller gears than the normal non-XFE cobalt... geared for max fuel economy... Looking to change the gear ratios slightly to better be able to transfer the power to the wheels

ok. why not just get a trans out of an ls or lt or something like that. Would probably cost less than getting the upgrade
