SS 2.4 vs. G35 coupe

Hey guys, just wondering what you thought of this line up. I have an '07 2.4SS with an AEM cai, Ingalls stiffy ETD, Eibach sportlines, TWM short shifter, and a DC Sports carbon steel strut bar, and yes I know half the stuff I named won't benefit in a drag race, but I figured i'd name it all to be legit. Anywho, within the next month or so i'll be getting an ARK N2 cat-back exhaust (just as soon as its released mid November), a Cobalt Addiction 4-1 header and an XTC 2.5" downpipe. All in all, I figure it should be good for about 200-210hp (to the flywheel of course). Now i've heard of some SS/SC's beating 350Zs, so I figure if I can get my 2.4SS to have about the same (if not a tad bit more) power figures that match that of an SS/SC, I should have a pretty good chance at least againt a G35. I know Z's a bit lighter than the G's, and the main reason im asking if I know a few guys with G35's that think they are all that, and after a few more mods, i'd really like to show them up......in a NON-SUPERCHARGED Cobalt SS, haha. What do ya think?

I raced a G35 this summer, the G35 looked lowered, and i was not able to find out what was done to it. But i stayed infront of it about 1 - 2 car lenghts ahead, untill i hit 5th gear going pretty fast... and then he pulled away on me and i just gave up. I felt pretty happy, and that was when my car was stock. Now i have a Injen Cold Air Intake, I'd like to give him another go heh. But you'll need alittle more HP then that, i say get a turbo and that puppy will fly. Your going to need good suspension if your going to be running that much power too. I can't stop my tires from spinning with a boost start from 1st, all the way to 2nd gear and half way through second gear. So this winter i'm getting suspension and a strut bar.

Check out the "Modified" magazine, there is a guy in there with an orange streetable cobalt running 9s. Of course he is running a turbo setup, but the engine sure as hell looks like a 2.4 I do believe he has has to do a good bit of weight reduction also.

Hahn has a 2.4 litre Solstice with a stage 4 kit running 400hp on stock internals. Get that and there won't be many people who can keep with you.

I'd be scared to put that much power to the front wheels and still drive it on the street.

all those mods you mentioned will probly not get you to 200 bhp. bolt ons do little for n/a 4 cylinders. and even so, many people believe the ss/sc is underrated putting out more than 205 bhp. also, you will still be severely lacking in the tq department.
