ok so i have been doing many things to my 06 cobalt SS SC (G85 package) over the winter... took a few steps forward then a few jumps back... when i blew my motor testing it out.

but now she is about done, motor and body wise.

so here it goes, the plan: stage 4 kit from C/A, meth injection, some body work and repaint, CAI, Exhaust,lil interior work, lil trunk work... and some other small touches

new blower, ported out and rebuilt


2.6" pulley down from the stock 3.3

stage 4 kit, computer, tensioner, stage 2 belt, pulley, 60# injectors, with harness, and 2 step colder plugs

ported intake mani...

hidden meth kit

put back together

Hurst!

and the test run... video was stopped right before motor blew.... we ran it to rich and then leane dit out to fast... we first washed the walls, then melted down the piston while forcing over 20PSI of boost past the rings cousing them to break off

well i got a SS so my struts are lower, but i have the Eibach sportline springs with 19" ADR rims and the tire size is... 235/35/19 any bigger i would have hit the bottom of the lower spring brace on the strut.

and thanks

Love the color, Way to have some patience and love for the cobalt. What did those pistons run you. Do these cobalt actually have a timing chain or a belt? Looks good!!

cobalts have a timing chain... safer then a belt...


so yeah i have been breaking her in for the last 4-5 days.... put about 650 miles on her already... ran the car the first hundred mileson regular oil... then changed the oil and filter... again put in regular oil... i will change it agian at 1000 but then she will be ready for Synthetic.
while breaking it in i noticed when ever i give her some juice the boost shoots up so fast and the clutch slips haha... i know the clutch was fine before the build.. and we didnt touch the trans during the build... and the car only has 5k on it... haha so the car has to much boost HP and TQ for the clutch so i just ordered the Centerforce dual friction clutch... the DFX version not the DF one... the DF is only rated for 350hp/tq and the DFX is rated for over 450hp/tq and they both come with a light weight flywheel.

once the clutch is in i will be slowly breaking it in.. (600 miles) by then the car should have around 2000 miles on it and then i will drop in the new stage 2 axles and have it fine tuned... right now she is on a weaker tune for break in.
