I know i don't have a cobalt, but i do like them alot. If they came out a year earlier when i got my srt4 i would have had a very hard decision to make. I'm a chevy guy at heart and really think the SS's are awesome even if they are a little slower stock for stock. Well anyways just saying whats up and giving you guys props on your cars.

Supercharging the Xtreme, I like that idea. I'm a fan of the Xtremes. I use to drive an S-10 before I got my redline. How's the power and ride in the Xtreme?

Well the power is alot better than i thought it would be. Its a reg cab step side, pretty small truck only weighs just over 3000lbs. It has a the better cam so it gets like 10 more hp so its 200hp. I thought it would feel really slow since i was use to driving a modded SRT, but its actuly really fun to drive. Its got snow tires on it right now so if you shift hard it can chirp every gear cept 5th. The ride is very nice, its not too stiff.

I def would like to do that, but dropping a V8 in there takes a bit of work and a bit of money. I'm gonna look into it though, because even an N/A ls1 would haul ass, then some day i could proly afford a sc or turbo for the v8 and then i would have a truck that was way faster than it needs to be, which i like.

Yeah my dad's boss is making a twin turbo HEMI powered Chevy Silverado step side it is about done but the really scary part of it NO intercooler, NO blow off valve!! :eek: AND the boost will never stop getting higher (But it will slowly "leak out" no really loud PISST) the truck is built to take about 30- 40lbs of boost. So yeah will get some pics someday when i get some time. :)

Not to mention the price of GAS!!! Sheesh my S-10 would have an LS1 for a heart too but gas is killer! I love my mid twenties gas mileage!! (4cyl... :( no power... good mileage! :) )

The new LS7 powered Z06 is currently estimated at 16/26. How awesome is that??????? If I get one I doubt I would get anywhere near 26mpg though. :eek: :)

No intercooler??? That is going to be some extremely hot air being pumped into the engine. Talk him into one, I've got an intercooler for sale anyway, hurry someone buy it!!

Ya gas prices kinda suck, esp where i live. I live on an island so prices here are always higher.... for everything. I think a ls1 powered s10 would be sick regardless of gas prices, but boosting the 4.3 might make more sence over all finacialy. I kinda wish i just had a camaro but can't right now, someday i'll get one. Maybe they'll bring them back and i can get a new one.

and we would have been even more of twins if the cobalt came out a year earlier, i proly would have gotten one, and it would have been black. I really like how they look, and i proly would have not believed that the srt4 performs a lil better.

Its twin-turbo so boost levels won't be high. More in likely he will run nitrous too, no reason not to.
