with just bolt ons or can I turbo it and build the engine? If that's the case bankerbalt says like 400whp. Full bolt on's you're looking at around 180whp tops and most people say that's with cam swap too
if i did everything again, i could probably rebuild the engine in a day and turbo it in a day. if an experienced shop can't do it in 4 days (figure 8 hour shifts), then they suck. if you bought a set of sleeves for your car or a sleeved block from zzp, you'd be looking at handling more than 400whp
lol thanks. girlfriend was over so i kept off the forums. nothing is too hard to do on these cars, it's really a matter if you have the tools and the resources to reference everything. for my rebuild, i just used the chiltons manual. for the turbo... i just put parts on and took a guess on my measurements for my hot side charge pipe
lol anyone can do anything if they have the available resources. improvise, adapt and overcome, hasn't the marine corps taught you anything yet? ha. the only thing i've had a shop do for me is my first oil change when i got the car, an alignment, clean my block, and weld on a muffler. everything else has been me

also, when i bought this car, i didn't know a damn thing about engines
bahaahahaha, ive adapted and overcame everything ive done to my car yet. im just a bit intimidated by the big stuff... theres DIY shop on base thats only like 4 bucks an hour with free tool rental and such
i know how that is. our sgt major at my reserve base up here just got busted for a dwi and is now getting forced retirement.
all the tools you really need to take the engine apart are... 8,10,12,13,15,17,18mm wrenches and sockets, a t10 or t12 torx, ft/lb torque ratchet, in/lb torque ratchet, extensions, 1/2 3/8 and 1/4 inch ratchets, honing tool, plasti gauge, feeler gauge. i think that's it
Hello guys, so there's an independant car dealer selling a 2010 turbocharged cobalt with 79k miles on it for only 3.4k USD. Considering the price and the general looks of the car (it's neat, no rust and looks well maintened from what i can see in the pictures, for the body at least). Thing is...
I have a 2009 Chevy Cobalt. I need a fuel tank sending unit that GM discontinued. Where can I get this part? I live in NJ and nobody has it including junk yards. Called 3 dealers and told me to look in junk yard. I am at my wits end. Please help me.
car has a strong gas odor after it has been parked and i see that there was a recall for the fuel pump module because the plastic lines were cracking. is that recall still open? Bulletin # 09226. car has less than 100,000 miles.
