Jakes Official Project Thread

I recently got an 05 L61 Cobalt in a weird mishap. Anyways, I never own anything stock and I am extremely well versed in forced induction due to the fact that I built a 95 Talon TSI pushing 339fwhp and then I had a barely tweaked 2000 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro that I literally just sold yesterday. So without further delay this is my cobalt.
Kinda stock right now

Shaded third brake and side markers not doing the tail lights just waiting for good LED's or something but I'm working on something fancy for the bow tie but i'm not sure what yet....next mods are either one of the following groups head/tail lights, tint, lowered/rims or manifold back exhaust from DC or ZZP and a tune by the time i'm done messing around those choices are pretty close to the same total when all done so gimme some ideas guys I'm undecided on my next move

You should post all of this in ther regular forum, no one really uses the premium sections anymore.

As for suggestions, I'd lower it and get your exhaust...

Cat+Cat-back idea

Magnaflow Muffler model number 14820, I can go smaller on size but I want the straight through cannon style, 2.5 inch piping in between with a high flow cat, and quite possibly a good manifold, possibly a thrush glasspack as a resonator to make sure my sound is deep and low, not crotch rocket ricey sounding.Let me know what you guys think and yes, i have looked at ALL and I do mean ALL companies offering pre-mades for the car and I hate how the tips look on the car plus I only found 1/50 videos on youtube that had the sound i wanted and even then its not a guarantee because of a/v quality or whatever else may alter the sound in a video so i'm trying this my way and if it works then sweet and we can all have a sweet idea of our own custom exhausts if not then oh well i tried and i'll get something else later

Good start, and I wish I knew a bit more about turbo systems. I read a bunch of thread, and have asked some questions about things. I want to go turbo, mainly I don't know where to start. I'd like to just be able to buy a full kit put it on tune and be done with it. I'm pretty good with mechanics and I think I could install it with a bit of help from some people that know what they are dong, but the kits that are sold for our cars are pretty pricey. Everyone says piece it together, but thats when I just kinda shrug my shoulders, and give up since I don't know what all I need to do it right and I've never done it or helped do it before.

As for the AEM intake. I had one, but where it feeds into the fender well, it started rubbing, and rubbed a hole it. I had no clue untill I took out my headlights to change the bulbs about a year back. I wrapped it and used a silcone coupler to cover, and it work like a charm. If i ever get rid of it, I think I'll be going with an SRI, Like K&N or the Injen CAI that can convert to SRI.
