couldnt find any posts on this..

and just for you guys who think im an idiot for not getting a SS to begin with. Its because i have really high insurance, im paying 212.00$$$ a month for a 4 dr cobalt....

It's a little bit more than a head swap (otherwise why stop there- bolt on the 8.1 head!) :D j/k
Seriously, almost the entire engine is different
- different crank (longer stroke)
- different block/sleeves/pistons (bigger bore)
- different head/cams (includes the VVT)
There's probably more, this swap would take some serious coin (a lot more than you're saving on insurance)

why so much for your insurance? mine is only $224 a month for a full load SS/SC and im only 20. and you think 212 is bad? try $398 a month for a truck. that was bad.
