Dyno results of our 05 SS, Video of car on dyno !!

We installed a drop in style filter into the airbox of our 05 Cobalt SS, and dyno tested our car before and after. We didnt expect anymore than 2-3 hp at most, but regardless, because we had never dyno tested the car before we wanted to see how much power it would put down.

The dyno tests were done at Carboy in Houston Texas, 3rd gear runs for both dyno results. We gained a consistent 1.5 - 2 hp across the board, even more for torque on the lower end. The peak numbers are a little off for hp after though as the dyno operator bounced off the rev limiter and created a spike which gave higher than normal dyno numbers.

Anyways, heres the dyno result :


Want to check out a video of our car on the dyno and hear the supercharger whine ?

We are very pleased with the dyno results, especially with GM rating the Cobalt SS at 205hp / 195 tq and we put down a solid 217 hp and 185 torque at the wheels. Definitely underrated for HP !!

We will continue working on the Cobalt to increase its performance and will have plenty of pictures of the new items, and dyno results to show the differences before and after.

:D

Nice numbers man!!! 205bhp my ass!!! On my calculator, 217whp, given an extremely efficient drivetrain, I used a lowball figure of a 10% drivetrain loss, even though it is probably more than that, I came up with 238hp at the crank. Given a larger 15% drivetrain loss factor, I calculated 249hp, granted that is a generous figure, and that was also based off it's 217whp baseline. My guess is that it's somewhere in between those 2 figures at the crank. Way to go GM!!

I am impressed that is awsome that really that Cobalt SS does have more power than thougt to have. And please keep us up to date and the car sounds awsome. Did you happen to any mods to the air box or was that just with the stock air box?

Those are really good numbers, but Im with a lot of the SRT-4 guys, I just wish they woulda upped the torque. I still haven't heard where the rev limit is set at (Im sure it has one) does anybody know? Or how far it can be raised safely?

OT - slow4dr, your project car looks like a crazy one. I would love to see that.

Thanks man, I will have some pics up very soon. I have been holding out until the engine is actually mounted. It has already stirred up quite a storm though.

:D

Yeah i think it is a super engine. But i saw some one put a small block chevy in a 72 Nissan 240Z it was a insane car to see do a burn out.
