boosting problem

Hey guys my brother recently bought a 2006 SS cobalt. And I have no idea whats under this hood so far to me it looks like it just has a full exhaust on it with a stock supercharger. I have no idea if this is normal or not but his car pushes about 12 lbs. at full throttle. Recently, however, it only opens up to about 5 lbs. I know that this is not normal for this to be happening but if anybody to give me info. or advice about this situation it would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.

if ur not going into it full the car isnt gonna boost 12 psi which is stock psi boost BUT if u are going all into it and it lags i do believe u have a problem because only turbos have lag even tho the stock ko4 turbos on our cars are twin scroll and barley have any lag but urs is a supercharger so it should be direct power with no lag once so ever

i would make sure your belt is tight, it could just be slipping, and check your oil in the m62, it may be low.

I was beat by RKRamos.

Ouch, it sounds like your SC is on its period because it doesn't want to operate at normal levels lol. No really, it may be the belt, tensioner or pulley that is causing the low boost. OR, if you have a CEL on, then first find out what that is and it may be the purge valve. I had a boost problem, not like yours though, until I cleared the purge valve code on my Balt too.
