It's def. the perspective. I thought the same thing watching it, but after adding the short ram intake, it feels a touch quicker. And we're the same speed as a Cobalt SS/SC, considering we're siblings.
If I was doing that speed on a two-lane road w/ trees and whatnot, it'd "look" quicker. Just watch my speedo. I get up to 90, then beyond, pretty quickly.
And that Protege was at WOT. Not a fast car, but gives you an idea of my speed. The only other way to get perspective is to watch the left side of your screen in the long tunnel. See the doorways? I'm not sure how far apart they are, but it's a pretty damn long distance. Otherwise, with the lights not being broken apart, solid centerlines, and an even white paint, it's hard to tell how fast I was going w/o looking at my speedo (I think I hit 125, 130).
For example, watch the last part, as I'm taking the offramp. As I get into the left lane and punch it in 2nd gear, then go into 3rd, it looks faster than the tunnel run, but I only took it to 70 mph or so.
Couple people have PMed me about the intake. Here's the link on the Ion Red Line forum:
Don't know how helpful it'll be, as I haven't seen a Cobalt SS/SC's intake.
