i used not like those cars, but they are starting to grow on me. Thats a pretty clean looking interior too, i like it. would look really good with a drop and some diff wheels imo.
good pics

actually, its slower then the focus was, but not for long.

the stage 2 pulley is fine, but im looking for a little more boost then the one provided and they make a stamped duplicate of the GM pulley...just smaller :)

madmark: the car makes just a little over 12psi stock. this is lake ray hubbard off chaha/zion...bout 1/4 mile off 30 hidden

def...i don't have to worry about inspection, or cops when sitting at a stop light...or driving in the rain.

the wheels will def go for a lightweight set...as well the spoiler will be GONEEEEEEEE...

I really like those seats, and that spoiler is freakin annoying when you're driving. I drove my boss' Slobalt SS once, and I really liked the way it drove; completely different than my Focus. The only thing that bothered me was that damned spoiler blocking my view. Nice choice in color. [thumb]

ive heard the stg 2 gm kit is worth about 250whp, damn nice if you ask me. Alot of people bash them but they really are good cars. Just cause the base cobalt isnt particularly nice doesnt mean the SS supercharged isnt...nice car man, congrats.

yep, its good for near that as long as intake/exhaust with the combo... they are great cars and even the 2.4l is a mid 15 second car...not too shabby.

i surely didn't like the base or ltz but loved this car when i drove it... i miss chirping 3rd gear. and with 30lb wheels...im suprised it does it.

the car will probably end up with the carbon fiber hood trunk combo to ditch the spoiler and knock off some of the weight...car is pretty hefty.

My girlfriend has a cobalt, and last week we tried to trade it in for your exact car. She wants a SS/SC so bad. I cant allow her to have a quicker car than mine though. Anyway, you have an awesome car, enjoy it.
