    Synapse is selling a kit for $3995 that takes a stock Cobalt SS from 240whp 260wtq to 371whp 383wtq. That's some cheap powa :bowdown:
    Ecotechnik Turbo Kit
    Kit Includes:

    -GT2871r Turbo

    -SynapseTurbo Exhaust Manifold

    -SynapseTurbo 2 piece Downpipe

    -SynapseTurbo Intercooler Kit

    -SynapseTurbo 3 inch CAI

    -Turboxs BOV

    -Custom Oil/Coolant lines

    -Hptuners Tuned File

    It's tuned for 91 octane and doesn't include catback exhaust, so there is still more power to be had.

    Here is a clip of the car in action. Before you dis' the sound of the ricer exhaust, keep in mind that it is still running the stock catback.

    I don't care if it's FWD, it's still fast as hell and probably a blast to drive. Now I want to get rid of my speed 6 :wtc:

    Impressive gains for such a "cheap" kit, no doubt about that! But understeering is not my definition of fun, sorry.

    That sounds just like my asshole when I rip a good one and my sphincter flaps back and forth.

    They gained 130hp with 22psi? WTF? Why such a big intercooler as well? I bet you'd see better gain with a better fuel system....then you'd split some metal inside the engine.

    Tell that to anyone who owns a modded srt4, gti, rsx, civic, etc... :ugh2:

    Even if it's fwd it's still capable of running 10's, 11's and 12's down the track, which may not sound like fun to you but it does to me.

    i'd rather drive a tC that the cobalt(in fact i actually do). both easily modded but i do believe the cobalt is cheaper. question is reliability...

    You're just jealous because an american ricer can walk all over your pos mustang. Cobalt handles better too.

    I'm all for fast cars but big power through FWD does kinda suck when it comes to torque steer. It happens it's ok, no need to get defensive

    :rofl:Is that so? Wasn't aware you slept in my garage next to my car. That explains the piss stains.
    And i'm sure it handles even better now with twice the power. Handles right into a tree with its awesome FWD understeer.

    We're all jealous - that's the problem. We ALL have slower cars. Never seen something with 371 horses - wholly shit!:greddy:
