Belt driven? Like a supercharger? ZZP has a good kit (in both stage 1 and stage 2 flavors) that retails for around $2500 + tax & shipping. I've got a complete stage 2 kit that I want to get rid of. Never been run. Asking $1600.

No centrifugal supercharger that I know of has ever been installed on a Cobalt. Why would you want to anyways when there are better choices out there?

Pretty sure they'll hold more boost than an roots blower. Not 100%, but pretty sure.

Pretty sure it's the opposite, they generally produce lower boost then roots type superchargers and turbos.

Not that that's a measure of power anyways.

Stop looking because you cant just swap the engine into yours unless you want to completely redo all the wiring ecu etc. aka thousands and thousands of dollars.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

You can build up your 2.2 to over that for half the cost and effort it would take to swap in an LSJ/LNF. Keep the engine, it's honestly not that bad, just get a little internal work done if you want to push 240whp+
