Check this out. RSM Racing ALREADY has a supercharger setup for the 2.2L Cobalts. Doesn't surprise me though, they probably just modified the Cavy's S/C setup. 60hp increase claim. That will be right on target w/ the SS's hp! I think it would be cool! Here's a link:

RSM Racing S/C for 2.2L Cobalts

They also already have brake, suspension, carbon hood and trunk, and other upgrades as well.

Also look for a stage 2 to come out soon they generally claim around an 85hp increase on their stage 2's! That would be on par w/ an SRT-4!!!

Well shit that is awsome that might make some things interesting. A regular 2.2L Cobalt takeing down SRT-4's that would be one hell of a sight.
I might not have to wait for my SS then i might just make my own version to my likeing. Hummm.......

It would be cheaper too. A regular Cobalt would run around $17K and the S/C is around $3K so thats a good $3K less than an SS! Then you would still have room for other mods.

I know but you would have to invest a little more into the regular 2.2L cobalt for you LSD and other things like that.

Yeah but somebody'll do it! And I want to see it!
So damn tempting it would be a good idea because there are so many Damn base models around here that it is sicking and the one thing that it would be a complete "sleeper".

For a daily driver, I probably would supercharge it, generally less problems, but for a racer, I'd go turbo on the 2.2L!

That would be very hard to do that if i had all that power at demand i will like to use it. And plus i would rather supercharge it because it would be much easier to hide because most dont need to be intercooled.

Well a turbo doesn't NEED to be intercooled either. Its just better, just like it is for S/C. Banks Power makes a lot of turbo systems for small blocks and they dont use turbo's on most, and maybe none of their kits use intercoolers.

A turbo will get real freckin hot and has a better chance of over heating. My dad's boss is buliding up a twin turbo Hemi for his truck and not intercooling but the down side is cant do long drives.
