Dude Noooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

i just made this same huge mistake about hp tuners that you are about to. i know the site says that our 2.4 models are compatible but after many shops and many attempts IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE... unfortunately our model is the bastard child of the cobalt. u can do anything else with hp tuners except actually tune it.... i assume from ur name u have a 2.4l which is why i am telling you this. who ever you get to tune your car they will have to use a FIC unit "they will know what ur talking about" and even a decent price will leave you out about 1000 bucks. just passing knowlege

Oooo....Ouch....He went on a rant and got cut down. But thanks for the Info on the tune. I'm planning on doing a turbo myself but I am gettin the new tuned PCM and TCM from Hahn Racecraft or ZZP. I'm leaning more toward the ZZP kit.

So does anyone know if using a HP tuner is a good tune for a 2.0 S/C? Looking at getting tuned by next weekend, by a guy that uses it to do all of Chevy/GM tunes at his dyno shop.
