i'd like to know if this upgrade will work on 2.2 eco. i've put a turbo on my 03, but would still love to push out more power.

I don't think GM will have anything past the stage kits

Rumor has it gm is going to build a AWD, 6spd, 300HP cobalt based on some components from the VIBE AWD. this is to rival the dodge excaliber.

now if the BS flag came up in your mind then your right. if not then you are a dreamer.

I raised the flag at AWD. Too much money to re-tool a FWD car to AWD. Maybe in the next model redesign, but i would bet against it. And why is it that people think GM can release a reflash for 30+ hp? theres not that much in a 200 hp engine to gain with just electronics, you have to at least change injectors and a pulley.

We need more boost!

I wish GM would build the Colorado SS with AWD as an option, but it'll never happen. And way to bring up a dead thread!

They couldnt do that, it would be too expensive. The Colorado already is a bust because for a few thousand more, you can get a full-size. For most people, that is a better deal. They need to keep the Colorado as cheap as possible. An AWD SS version with a H.O. V6 or V8 would be a $35k + truck.

They had a SS LS2 concept that was friggin awesome, but it was only 2wd. I just want them to sell them so I can pick one up used in a few years...
