Performance and General Improvement Question
So, I am not a car guy. I won't pretend to be. I have a 2010 Chevy Cobalt LS (I think it's LS anyways). It has no get-up-and-go to it whatsoever. My old Mazda 3 and my roommates Scion XB both run better. I'm sure it has something to do with the EcoTech engine.
Anyways, on to the real topic...what (if anything) can I do to upgrade my cars overall performance without replacing the entire engine? I'm currently debating whether it's worth putting money into this car to make it a decent vehicle, or just paying it off quickly as possible and trading it in. I've seen the body kits you can get for cobalts and quite honestly, if it's possible to make the Cobalt LS speed up, I think I'd love learning about cars and feeling accomplished by making it a side project. Some of the body kits just look so damn sexy, hah!
