Went to a local car meet last night and drove up with some buddies and one of them was in a cobalt ss. Wanted to play a bit but didnt get to until we got there and talked a bit.
He wouldnt tell me all of his mods for reasons unknown. These are what i found out.

Cobalt: exhaust, upgraded intercooler, custom tune(he tuned his own car), and was running around 14 psi. His car is the turbo to, not s/c. *if anyone knows how much power hes putting down please let me know!*

Me: exhaust, custom cai, and 75 shot. Pretty stock besides the juice.
First run i missed third and second he jumped and held it til 110 where i slowly reeled him in but we didnt have enough room.
Anyways we decided to do a 3 runs at a 45 roll. Here is run #3... other videos were to long to sent to my phone. (sorry about the crappy quality)

Is your sig accurate and you have an LS1/T56 in your IROC? If its pretty stock with a 75 shot you should have waxed that guy if the mods you listed on him is accurate. I'm guessing he lied and he's modded more than he said.

Yea, if that dude pulled you WHILE you were using a 75 shot, he's modded a ton more than he said. My buddies stock 2001 TA pulled on a stage 1 tuned cobalt SS. With only a few bolt ons supposedly, you should have waxed him.

I agree. I thought i had him at first.. then we raced. LOL
Im going to try to find out what other mods he has next time i see him.
In the third run i even got the hit and he just walked when the boost kicked in.

Was this NJ? If so I might be able to get the scoop.

you should have beat him without the 75 shot... the cobalt is hiding something

Isnt a turbo cobalt with tune and couple small mods easy 310whp easy?

a programmer,bolt ons,20-24psi is around 300whp 350wtq

Believe it or not, the Cobalt SS turbos can actually go pretty damn fast on the stock turbo. Full bolt on tuned cars make like 320+whp/360+wtq. And hes fulla shit saying its in 14psi. They run more than that stock. There is a turbo Cobalt SS around here that has the GMPP Stg1 kit and when I was stock with a lid and no cats he gave my car a fit 60-130. I still pulled him but he was dead on my ass till about 115 or so......

They've been LOW 12's maybe high 11's on the stock turbo btw.....evil little cars for sure

He didnt really say much on it so i asked around. He did say he was running too much boost on the turbo and he had to turn it down. Not sure on how much psi it was.

Another third party source said he was in a 12.51 class and he was running 13.2s before the intercooler or some bolt ons. Cant remember for sure

my lnf in my solstice gxp (same engine as the cobalt) ran 23 lbs on the dash gauge with the gmpp stage 2 tune. if i remember right it was either 15 or 17 lbs from factory. the torque on those engines is amazing. my tune went from 260 ftlbs to 340 ftlbs all under gm's factory warranty. it seemed to run out of steam at about 130ish mph but the cobalts are alot lighter too

Even the supercharged cobalts were fast, can't imagine how the turbo'd ones with a tune are doing.

04-14-2012, 12:27 PM
As said you can really see the torque when he got into his boost. But down low he seemed to be a dog. My buddy with a 350z held him til 100 when they went from a dig. He flew by when he passed him to. So a dig or low roll i think id have him, if anything a good race.

Slo1SS
04-14-2012, 01:26 PM
Oh a dig and you'd murk that ass. But not because it doesn't make the power. Its because the car can't hold it till it gets traction at higher speeds. I bet a mildly modded Cobalt SS t/c would be a handful for a even a cammed car with some DRs, suspension, and drivetrain mods.....

88blackiroc
04-14-2012, 02:18 PM
Agreed. On the juice id imagine id make what a mild bolt on/cammed car does.

Yea fwd cars with power hav horrible traction issues

:wave:

I'm still waiting for a stock ls1 to run.
I have no doubt there would be a suprise.

And I am at 24lb too so I don't get the 16lb thing in the orig post.

*digs are comical. My best sixty was 2.3 and trapped 106 :lol:

Street races turn out me getting jumped 2 cars, then me pullin past with the F&F Monicaaaaaaa look on the other guy :-P

yeah i have one of the turbo ones and 14psi is a lie 24 is ideal when tuned. With bolt ons and e85 we can hit 330-340whp and up to 400 wtq. Cant wait to get my ta done and run them against each other.

Slo1SS
04-14-2012, 09:17 PM
Can the Cobalt SS t/c run E85 from the factory. I wasnt sure if they were flex fuel or not.....

hugger1975
04-14-2012, 09:27 PM
Nope on E85

This guy was also running e85. And those are some decent numbers! These things seem to have alot of midrange and run out of steam up top?

if he was running e85 that means he has larger injectors.i would only get larger injectors for a larger turbo.

I was under the impression that you could not get larger injectors because they are direct injection. ??

You can run a mix of e85 and 93 i ran it last year, the lnf in the ss loves the ethanol. You can run full with a tune but some cars cant flow enough fuel up top.

if he was on full e85 he probably has the trifecta tune, they can run full but run out of fuel up top because injectors cant flow enough, e47 lets you run more then enough timingfull e85 is just overkill. The trifecta tune is 24 psi and a shit ton of timing, pretty hard to keep up with from a roll, of course from a dig we all know how that would go which is why i bought my trans am lol.

Haha well next time ill be sure to go from a dig. Not sure what the trifecta tune is BUT he was using HPtuners to mess with his shit before hand. He also wanted to run for dough.. glad a didnt!
Btw, what part of md are ya from?

Trifecta is a remote tuning service that offers the full e85 tune, most hp tuners people dont use full e because theres no need really, but he might have done the full e tune himself a few people have. Im from Frederick MD.

LMAO!!! That's my boy's Cobalt SS LMAO. That's how we get down son. Here's what most don't understand. A cobalt comes on and makes torque like a V8 (I'm serious) but it holds Hp and revs like a 4cl. For a street car it is the Perfect motor. It does not run out of steam. The stock turbo is pretty good. With minimal boltons it's an easy 340-350whp capable on low boost on 93oct. Now running e85 may be a diffent story. Being FWD they do spin but the ecu and it's traction control is so damn sophisticated they don't have traction issues. The turbo cobalt SS is fucking amazing! A few years ago I was riding shotgun with the cobalt from that vid. He was on the stock turbo and from a 20-30mph roll I witnessed him drag an 09 M3 3-4 to 120mph. He had 3-4 cars on the M3 (a highway beast lol) and was still pulling before he let off LMAO.

what did the guy in the ta expect? 545whp and that car vs his prob stock short 3500lb junk. it'd take every bit of 625 in his ta to even think about keeping up. oh well.

i've heard those turbo cars are a handful. i beat quite a few supercharged ones in my bolt-on camaro. haven't had the chance to run a turbo balt in my STOCK trans am.

Dayhoff35
04-15-2012, 07:09 PM
yeah im not saying the trans ams are bad because i have one too, from a roll theyre not the best but that balt has a ton done to it and is a monster.

Yeah, I met Ryan a little back and he's a pretty cool cat. We are going to do some runs come this spring. His little white snobalt is pretty bad ass from what I gather.
