dyno on stock clutch just to hear it

YouTube - ‪2.4 turbo cobalt. exhaust idle‬‎



YouTube - ‪2.4 turbo cobalt quick pull‬‎


finally sitting down and planning wut i wanna do for the future. im looking to get a new place next jan so im trying to have the big pieces ordered so i dont have to worry about them

here's what i have planned out so far.

diamond forged pistons 440 ottperformance.com
carillo rods 849.99 ottperformance.com
ARP ECO head studs 134.99 ottperformance.com
ZZP valve spring kit 179.99 ZZperformance.com
valves 339.99 ottperformance.com
main studs 132.99 ottperformance.com
piston rings 130 ottperformance.com
intake mani
Devils Own Meth Kit 200 CSS purchase BOUGHT
zzp 2 bar map 34.95 Zzperformance.com BOUGHT


Still unsure as to wut i wanna do with the intake mani but ill work on that later. my shop can make one for me. its just a matter of wut i wanna do.

i may or may not go with a new turbo, ran a bolt on and tune ss tc on saturday. for the most part we're even depending on the speed he'd beat me or id beat him. (friend has video, still waiting for it lol) but ill be updating this as i gather all the parts

i just ordered the meth and 2 bar so when it comes in ill be adding that to my setup and dynoing.

That's what I thought too, and I like the internal setup list you got going there. How much HP are putting down at the wheels with your current setup?

so its a custom set up and not a kit? nice, how much did it run you
i first bought it off Maven from css (one of the most knowledgable cobalt guys on the net)

and from wut it seems it was a kit made by Rebel Auto Works. Since ive had it i replaced everything except the turbo mani and dp

i paid 1300 for it and it came with a gt30 turbo. turbo alone worth 1300

should be 300 easy. i havent dynoed, but i will after i install meth. maybe before, whichever situation presents itself. i did run a ss/tc that is on par with most 3xxwhp ss/tcs so itd have to be somewhere around that range as well

Damn that's one clean car! How reliable do you think the setup is? I really wanna run a turbo but the car is a daily driver and I put around 25,000KM a year on it. Nice job and keep it up!!!
