Tranny Build, or Buy Evo?

My gf and I just had a baby boy! My question is what do I need to build the tranny to be able to hold 350whp. I have the ls cobalt with engine build etc. How much will it cost,? Or should I just sell cobalt and buy sti or evo x? It snows here so I was looking at awd cars. Any advice will help

Why don't you get a little SUV AWD instead. Safer for the little guy, easier access for girlfriend to install baby in car seat. Higher of ground for snow clearance. I'm thinking maybe a Buick "Encore" 1.8l turbo AWD would suit you way better than an EVO. EVO is not really a familly car. Remember you might have an other one on the way soon.

I put so much money into the engine build, but that's not a prob, the tickets are! Lol we looked at the sti hatchback. She liked it, I like it, nice lil trunk etc, but I just dunno how to part with cobalt. The engine is built, just need turbo and tranny build.

Experience talking here...... If you want to keep your girlfriend and futur wife do the responsable thing. Make a familly decision and not a personal decision.

Just trying to help.............. I know, been there bought the Tshirt and the f*in spoon.

Your tranny never took a dump bankerbalt? The cobalt interior is bothering me now lol, after tranny build hoes redecorating interior. $$$$$ I'm 6"5, I sit ok comfortable inside. So can't complain, I like my balt. Just want something that's fast already, with nice interior, and feels trustful. I dunno how my cobalt will act in snow with so much tq after I finished. ...

Evos have 4 doors though. Sort of a family car.
