Am I crazy or do the 2009 cobalts/g5's pull harder than say my 2005?

I swear my friends 09 4 dr with all options pulls harder than my 2005 coupe with no options. My g/f says I'm crazy so I figured I'd ask you nice people. Both 2.2L engines and we both have gmpp intakes and gmpp catbacks.

other things factor in, like wear. A new motor with the same power could be making all its power it says it does where the older has fallen off some. Transmissions can be another factor and not all motors are the same even if they are suppose to be. Theres factory slugs and freaks that actually are quicker then they are rated to be.

I might just chalk it up to im crazy and maybe it feels different because im in the passenger seat instead of driving in my friends car.

Theres an old 1/4 strip down the road from me, they use it for some kind of fire department drills or something and theres a windmill down there. The road is kept in perfect shape because of the government stuff down there. Very rarely see anyone on that rd and theres even still an extremely degraded start line :)

Plus like bankerbalt said, we're basically stock...in 15 mins we'll just be hitting 70mph :p

one of the fastest cars around here on the auto x is shockingly a 1995 civic hatch stock 1.5L with lowering springs and 13" tires. Always places in the top 3
