nice job painting the valve cover! looks great.
like b-low said, you could remove the oil cap spacer to make it look a little better. and id be careful with the cheap intakes. i have heard bad stories about plastic tubes, and cold weather areas. dont want plastic shrapnel trying to get into your engine.
oh i just saw your in GA. prolly dont have to worry about to cold of weater. id still go with a tested name brand intake though.
Well i tried to take the valve cover off, but it wouldnt budge free after i took all of the bolts out. So, i just rigged it so where there were rags and painters tape everywhere and sprayed away. i still have to go back and do some finishing touches though.
What's the difference between a short ram intake and a cold air intake?*Cold air intakes are usually placed in the fender well area, which brings in a cooler charged air from beneath the car (outside of the engine bay), which is denser and therefore creates more power. The piping is a lot longer than a short ram which means the power gains are not seen until the mid to higher RPM band. A short ram intake is located inside the engine bay and creates power with better response times than a cold air, however the air is not as dense, which means that it doesn't make as much power in the upper RPM region and makes less power overall
Here was my first sideways issue, the anchor point, for part of the body parts. Good thing that was designed to be moved and it was two small bolts.
Next issue, this looks a bit tight from this angle!
Crap, it looks tight from this angle too.
It looks even worse from this angle as...
I have a 07 cobalt Ls 2.2, I heard a read a lot of negative thing that people have to say about modifying those cars and say it’s pointless!. How and why would it be pointless for modifying a car you own and what to look, sound and perform outstanding and have something unique that you can say...
