Lightbulb QUESTION: Cobalt SS Supercharger

Will a 2005 cobalt ss supercharger work on my 06 cobalt my?
I found a guy selling it for $900 and sounds like a good deal to me but Idk? I'm a noob lol
The supercharger is 90% complete bolt on kit, all it needs is the snout rebuild kit and tubing for coolant tubing. It is a beautiful piece, had it chrome like polished. Supercharger includes:intake manifold, intercooler, pump, the belt driven pulleys(polished)

I'd get a turbo instead... just my 2 cents.

Yes it will work, and bolt right up.

Whats the max power you can get out of a supercharger on a Cobalt. Seems like everyone recommends the Turbo on our cars but I just love that supercharger whine

About 240whp on stock internals before things start breaking. The L61 engine is beefier than the LE5 when it comes to taking boost.

L61 is not "beefier". The 06/07 le5 had semi forged internals that could handle the power. They run less boost because the compression is higher but that doesnt mean they cant handle it. The l61 is inferior.

I would turbo your lsj and swap the supercharger on your base. Youd be much happier

I would not go the route of turbo charging, running forced induction will cause more wear and tear on your engine regardless of how and what forged or billet parts you have in there. I would say supercharging is less maintenance required than a turbo since you have vacuum to pressure and more gauges required to monitor. Its really your call, but running the stock eaton m62 with the engine built a bit stronger, you will have less worries than a turbocharger setup.

Then why do I hear so many of us saying the internals of the 2.4 are made of glass etc.? Yet the L61 is so widely used for boosted applications?

Don't hear much/any about LAPs being boosted either.

The 08 sport internals are glass. Whoever tells you the other years are, dont know what theyre talking about. The l61 is widely used in boosted applications because it is the most common engine for the cobalts and everyone who buys one, gets bored with it quick. There are plenty of lap's that are boosted.

So the '08 Sport/GT has osteoporosis? 2006-2007 2.4s are solid?

Good to know.

If by next year I'm still alive and my car is still slow, I may supercharge.
