2010 Cobalt LS XFE Vs. 1984 Firebird 2.8

Sup forum. I have this obnoxious friend that thinks his lame 2.8 'Bird can eat my cobalt alive. He absolutely hates the cobalt. Calls it shitty all the time.
Think he can take me?
P.S. It's a slushbox.

Slammed to the ground, yo.

The old 2.8 F bodies are so slow that they get beaten by school buses

You will chew him up and spit him out.. SILENCE HIM!! haha

I think my Fiero has the same engine, pretty sure gm used that same 60 degreee V6 in all their cars at the time.

Stats on it:

130whp
170ft/lbs tq

You can probably even get him out of the hole considering any V6 f body cept for the 3800 is a turd.

Blah maybe the Fiero engine is tuned up some, cause the guys usually net higher numbers on the forums than that when they dyno stock. I might dyno my engine just to see what it runs haha..

I will say that the series 2 3800 and even 3800 n/a are friggin awesome V6s, but yeah I'd agree about the rest. The 3.4 dohc is a fun little monster, but it has its drawbacks.

if it was a cavalier and it was a manual it would be close though a good driver would have it, just cause of the 2.8's power band but nothing was better than that torque in my old z24. But this is a fireturd, enjoy the beating, of him that is. Should be very easy, if my 88 z24 would rip on camaro's with the same motor than a new car should slaughter it.
