Smile New to Colbalt

Hi guys, Looking at getting a 07 SS this weekend( Will know if the deal works today) But just curious on how well these are respond to mods?? This is not my first FI car( All turbos before) and I did not know to much about the supercharger. So what would the first mod be, Best bang for buck??? **** stage kit? I know turbo cars you get a nice HP bunp with just a boost controler and some exhaust work are these the same? Thank you for all and any info you guys can give me.. Noob.. LOL

With these cars, its all about tuning. You can do the basics i.e. Intake, Exhaust, Injectors, Cooling. None of this will really help you though without a proper tune. When done properly, these mods will really wake your car up. Everything is controlled through the computer though, including boost.

If your not worried about warranty, then that's a good place to start. Stage kits sold outside the dealer usually put out more power than what GM sells. If you do want warranty kept, then you will have to go through the dealer. Aftermarket intake and cat-back exhausts will help you as well and will not void warranties

I guess I'm lokoing for best BANG for the $$$ I have $500 set a side for mods and it looks like I can get a STG kit with heat exchanger for that.. But would the stock intake and exhaust be too restrictive??

stage 1 kit is prety much just a chip programer. you can find it at autoanything.com its the vortex by superchips. this will give you 40 more hp setting you at 300 hp. also you can do custom tunes with it and use it on more than one car. it's the best bang for your buck.
