Heard some talk before about a rally style Cobalt SS. My car is a 06 SS/SC. Mods are basic 2.8-60s-ZZP Midlength-ARK Catback-Bwoody mounts-ZZP 1.0 PCM-ZZP S2 HE, Hurst STS, etc.....sosay about 250 whp or so. Car ran a 13.8 @105 mph now is 200 lbs lighter (see below) has a cai, different tune, larger exhaust, and now I have more experience (that run was my second run ever on the car).

Car is 2720 without me in it (weighed at weigh station). No speakers/amp/xm unit/ sound insulation/gutted trunk...etc.

I have had the lowered look and stock look. Went another direction to mix it up and havent seen anyone actually do anything along these lines?

So heres the plan. Continue to mod along these lines with hopes of racing in local Rallycross or something.

Nice to have ground clearance.

Mods so far are some all weather Michelins on some 16" Borbet CB wheels. Stock FE5 suspension and struts.....plenty of ground clearance.

Waiting for tires. Gonna try and see how the spacers work tommorow. Also gonna trim mud flaps a lil.

Put the LS front bumper on....barely fits over the heat exchanger and you can see the lines. Looks good imo......



Motor shots...


and....



Finally got the tires installed and lifted the front about a half inch. 215/60R16 Yokohama Geo Lander AT/S...rims to be painted black with truck bed liner like the jeep guys......

Need some lights up front, but not sure how to go about it.

Messing around with suspension articulation.......lol.



Stopped for a shot by some man made lake? Clay soils good to mess around in.

Small update....didnt score those lights so looking still for a good set.

Looking into getting some sort of suspension......unsure on that. Doing me research...want more lift.

Looking for a stock exhaust.....I want to get rid of this ARK setup and get a stocker. Anyone? Also looking to pick up HP Tuners so I can tweak some things...tire size for speedo...timing and fuel and such...I have the exact numbers at work but going to this size tire makes it something like a 3.62:1 versus stock 3.82:1? Something like that.

Installed my K&N Prefilter so now no worries about dirt and such

Pic of it installed.....



Pic of truck bed liner dash trim (thats a Hurst STS with the reverse lockout removed and hole for pin filled....whole thing painted in wrinkle black....with a polished knob)



and

Did some Sunday afternoon work.

Bumper needed some TLC and adjustment, figured I would redo the bumper badge....

While it was off, made some tweaks here and there.

Here you can see the K&N Prefilter so my ZZP CAI doesnt get too dirty.



Oh, thats right........Im finally painting those wheels.

This is a feeler paint job. Wasnt sure how the truck bed liner would look...so the barrels of the wheels arent dont.



Closer up shot......nice texture!



Also my interior pieces werent floating my boat......so.............



This is the GM Gold Carbon fiber trim kit.......couldnt find a good picture, so I gambled and think they look great! They dont come with door bezels though?

Anyways............hate on!

Now have HPT and tuning away, have to remove the wheels and finish coating them and reinstall the center caps.....

I don't think he's going for looks but more for a car that can go thru dirt terrain and whatnot, I think that's why he is trying to lift it so he can have more clearance. Well at least that's what I interpret it as maybe I'm wrong.

I hate leather and all the crap on a SS that doesnt suit a purpose. The wing is pointless and non functional, and blocks half my rear view mirror. Mirror covers are painted is all.....and the ls seats are lighter.

Again....I have weighed the car and its 200 lbs lighter than a stock ss/sc!
