the downpipe is probably the most restrictive part of the whole exhaust... with a high flow cat you can expect around 7-10 hp... header... and then you can worry about getting your power to the ground with things like motor mounts, etc...

Cool no into the juice !

no ( easy way out ) perfomance.... no nitrous for me... it takes the fun out of ur personal touch on ur cobalt !! its like having a parent buy u a new 07 ss/sc with all the trimmings... sure its paid for.... but when u have to work everyday and save money for that car payment, when its paid off.. u appreciate more... becuz that car is urs and the money was hard-earned

i personally don't like nitrous, and think it's similar to a weiht lifter using sterioids... you the dude gets big really quick, but as soon as he stops the steriods he shrivels back up

I agree 100%. Nitrous is undeniably the steroids of racing. Most people who really cherish there vehicle would never spray it anyway.

Now if you want to spray your weekend warrior/pure race car just for fun then thats another story. I just would never put that stuff on my daily driver. The nitrous companies will try to tell you how "safe" and "engine-friendly" there product is, but theres a reason why it voids every warranty you have.

your a bunch of uneducated children speaking about something you don't know about. i would go into the reality of a nitrous kit vs. a turbo kit but i would be wasting my time. sorry for posting on your thread and getting flamed for no reason. it's just an opnion. and if you read all my sig i have a turbo in the works as soon as hahn gets them available for shipping.
