what about an a4? awd and turbo! Just a thought not sure how they compare to a srt-4 for speed. Cobalt ss in my opinion is slow and the srt-4 its a fricken neon i dont care how fast it is its still a neon. My bro in law just bought an 05 a4 with 83,000 for 10,000.

I would say to get a WRX. Turbo, decent mileage if you keep your foot out of it, AWD, fastish, and easily modified. You could probably get one in good shape for about 10-12K.

I'm holding an 09 cobalt ss, and with very little work, it's fast as shit. With moderate work, holy shit it's fast. I've got intercooler, full exhaust, hks blowoff, tune, injectors, cai, and nitrous. It's a nasty 400 hp 4 banger. But, I'll only have it for another 6 months or so when my buddy gets back from Afghanistan

My bro is selling his... 2006 SS Supercharged. It feels super fast compared to my truck but it's not the fastest thing out there... he gets about 32 mpg and I think he's asking 11K.... I really love driving it but I think it's 'cause its so sporty compared to the truck. Only thing I don't like is how low it is... I would probably buy his if I had the money though

Cobalt SS/SC started in 05 and ended in 07. Best year for them is 06 because they are alot easier to tune. I have many friends with some as I used to be in a club when I had mine.

Friend 1 - Intake, 2.8 pulley, tune by himself - 240ish whp
Friend 2 - I/H/D/C-B, 2.6 pulley, tune, heat exchanger, Meth - 280ish whp (sold)
Friend 3 - I/H/D/C-B, 2.5 pulley i think, ported and polised SC, Meth, H-E, etc, etc, etc, lol - Prob 300

Friend 4 w/ 2008 TC - Tune, BOV, intake - 304 or something to the wheels

Cobaltss.net guy - 06 i think, custom turbo setup, blah blah blah, 4-something


Check out synapse turbo on youtube. Sounds like crap cuz its straight pipe, but its fast


They are made cheap inside though, but if I could get another, I would since they are inexpensive

i'm assuming he did before i ever took the car. the things i listed are what i've done to it since i've had the keys. He buys the parts, ships them to my house and i put them on.lol

if i'm not mistaken it is a stage 3 setup though. i'll get pictures for y'all within the next few days when i go get it out of the barn.

I really know a car is slow when the owner say "oh it's a stage XX". That sounds like such a kiddie quote. Anything that's been built for speed won't qualify as a "stage XX"

Yeah, sorry I don't have every detail. Hard to fit $30,000 of work in a small signature. - I just it the fine points.
