noob post sorry

ok i have a cobalt ls and i have done some exterior things to it and im about to do some interior but i eventually am going to want to get stuff done under the hood... what would be the most logical things to get done to give me more hp and make it faster? where can i get them installed? and how much will they cost? (plus installation) no i cannot install it myself i know nothing about doing that so plz dont say just do it yourself...

Start with a cold air intake, you can get the ebay one very cheap. like 100$ i think, and i know you said to not tell you this but, YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF. it is so easy. IT is a direct bolt on, it just fits in place. dont say you cant do it because anyone can, its simple. and they uslly come with instructions.

some installation instructions will recommend u do that,but its not required. If you would like I am getting a Cold Air intake in a few days I can do a diy on and post it so that you can follow that. Like said before it is really easy.
