Those numbers are closer to a Cobalt SS 2.4l but either way those numbers are still waaaaay off. What magazine was it?

muscle milestones i believe. It was showing the concept vehicles and the cobaltss/sc was under the new muscle section. I found it hard to believe cause my friends brother has a cobalt ss/sc with gm stage 2 , exhaust and he beat one of those new mustang gts which have a 0 to 60 of about 5.1 i believe. Is there anyway to get a cobalt down to a time like that while keeping the supercharger and the warranty?

There are guys on here who have pulled on the new GT's, so thats definately possible, but remember, a 0-60 time is all about the launch.

A mustang GT could smoke a stg 2 SS/SC 0-60, but still get ran down in the quarter or in top end.

To answer your other question= while i don't know about a 5.1 cobalt under warranty, i do know about getting a REALLY fast cobalt under warranty and here is the ingredients

1) Cobalt SS/SC (with G85 ideally)
2) GMPP Stage 2
3) GMPP catback (4 different kits, all of them rock)
4) GMPP exhaust manifold
5) Hurst short throw shifter (yep its an official GM product now)
6) Injen, AEM, K&N, etc cold air intake (not gm product but wont void warnty)

There ya go!

That plus a Torque Dampner (Shouldn't void warranty) and a 2.8 pulley (Might void warranty but easily removed) got me a 5.5 0 to 60 at 6000ft above sea level.

The fact is though. These cars aren't that impressive from 0 to 60. They start to really pull in 2nd and 3rd gear at the end of the quarter mile.

0-60 times is not what i buy cars for, our car may be afew tenths off the competition but after first a good pull in second and third is how ive won many races most get me during first that because of our low gearing.
