Yep. Just tell them it's a Sport. Which, if 1 year older, would have had the 2.4L in it. And that, for 06 and 07 anyway, was called an SS. However, after 08, they axed the motor. :cry: lol

Its an 09 lt3. the sport model from 09 down still had the 2.4l. the lt's with the ss body have the 2.2l lap and r called lt3s. mines an 07 lt3 with sport package, which is different than 08+ sports. it still has a 2.2l l61 but has 140mph white gauges instead and no top end limiter. jesus chevy, y does this shit have to be so complicated...

Yeah... 2.4 sport, lt3 w/ sport appearance... I just call them the fake SS, or SS poser edition lolz.

All kidding aside, as was previously stated you have an LAP motor, which I believe is good for 155 hp and 150 lb/ft of torque at the crank.

Your car also has the 4T45 4-spd, the only auto tranny offered.

Plain and simple here go to end this thread of confusion
2.0 L Turbo LNF I4 2008-2010
2.0 L S/C LSJ I4 2005-2007
2.2 L L61 I4 205-2008 (on all LS, LT, LTZ, and anyother trim with the letter L)
2.4 L LE5 I4 2005-2008 (in the SS/NA version as we call it. On 2008 this car was called the cobalt sport. It was dropped in 2009)
2.2 L LAP I4 2009-2010 (This is in all cobalts in 2009-2010 except the turbocharged versions)

It can be an LT3 with an LT badge. He also has the F23 trans if its a manual. I don't know the name of the auto. And whatever gauge cluster it has doesn't matter.
