Me vs cobalt ss
Well my buddy just bought on of those new cobalt ss turbos with a 5 speed. They are quick little cars he took me for a ride. I asked him if he wanted to run when we got back to my house. We get on the highway, no ones on there and did one run from 40-110. It didn't really keep up that well there was a constant pull from 4-6000 rpms and beat him by probably 4 car lengths. 2nd run was from 60-120. Again same result. It was really fun, my first real organized race sense I got the car.

The cobalts came supercharged, but not that bad, with a minor mods and pullies it can run with the stock LT1s

good kill, those new turbo SS are suppose to run 160mph

The new LNF turbo models are much faster than the previous supercharged version. I've read 1/4 mile times of 14.1 @ 103, that is quick for sure. Top speed is supposed to be 160MPH. One cool feature is the no lift shift, just keep your foot to the floor as you change gears, the computer will match revs for the next gear for you so you won't hit the limiter.
The other cool thing is that unlike most turbo 4 cylinders (Evo, STI, ect) the LNF has peak torque at 2,000RPM, so there is virtually no turbo lag at all.

my camaro just has a cia flow pack and catback.. Yes, his was the new turbo one.

Oh nice, i never knew they upgraded.
I never really liked the idea of supercharging a 4 cylinder so im glad to see it has a turbo now. They are not bad at all and i guess even better now. Atleast its a GM

Now all they need to do is add a 6 speed (5 Speed = obsolete and junk) and I would prolly buy one.┌∩┐(◕_◕)┌∩┐
Man: The Mods you are fighting,

wouldn't want to fight them!
Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

I will say this about those cobaltians,they are not afraid to spend money!
Don't get me wrong I am not a fan of the cobalt,,but I do the money that is spent on them!

along with the no lift shifting they also have launch control from the factory. they are indeed a good platform for upgrades... direct injection 2.0 turbo
