my friend has a cav with the 2.4 ecotec in it. its not bad in the take off but after 1st-2nd gear its good bye cav. but im modded and hes not. in the 1/4 i ran a 15.4 he ran a 16.9. but IMO the cav is 100% chick car no top-end and handles like a boat. only real cobalt is the SS but they still have 3 differant ones of those the two SS non supercharged i can beat but the SS superchardged one will eat me alive!! but even the SS dont handle as well as a stock foci but its a drivers race all ya got to do is get him off the line and you should beat him all day long. any time you play catch up you tend to over shift and make calls so make him do that and say not bad for a foci with less power lol
the SS s/c does handle as well as a stock foci and handles on par with the svt.
it is def a drivers race with the 2.2...
2nd_to_none: race a 2.4l with intake and tune in a balt...they will pull very well next to you
