never was crazy about the sonic but very curious to hear how it handles and if it lacks power or not.

Handles great and a blast to drive actually. For the size of the car and motor combo she gets up and goes great. Easy burn out. And with traction control off, tons of fun. Not much done yet it's only been like 2 weeks but will def post more pics for ya. The gauge cluster is awesome.

watch ZZP closely to see what they come out with hahahah


now, to research how much HP the stock engine can hold...can you say BOOST INCREASE? lool

just changing the downpipe/exhaust combo should give you some extra power :D

doesn't say anywhere what the engine is capable of in terms of hp limits...BOO! I would guess somewhere in thw 180whp range though since it's quite smaller than the balt and less material/less strong alloy most likely.

Stock it's 140 hp
I'm talking how much the stock engine can handle (before blowing) if you put larger exhaust components and up the boost etc.

otherwise known as "engineering limits" :p

not really, I would say 2.5 would be optimal. When you start pushing alot of boost and high HP then maybe 3".

I like 'em but something about them, maybe as I see 'em more and such. If I get something in that range its going to be the 500 Abarth.

More pics!
