Silver Bullet RL: That is a totally good run. Was the track crowded & you were only able to get just the 1 run in?

I see the exhaust mods in your signature, but have you done any horsepower mods at all..... Pulley, computer tuning???

Just the Factory ECU Update that fixed hesitation when shifting... that's it. No LSD.

Silver Bullet RL : Damn! So horsepower-wise it's pretty much completely stock. That is totally great. Between the Saturn Red Line Ion & the Chevy Cobalt SS it's totally about time that GM got with the "Tuner" / "Sport Compact" program.

With those numbers you can pretty much run with Hemi 300s, Hemi Magnums, and I'm going to have my hands full if I see either a Red Line Ion or a Cobalt SS.

Silver Bullet RL: What part of the city/state are you from?


Camaro 87: I wish my car had an LSD! And an agressive PCM!

Bucks County, PA (North of Philly).

I was able to get 2 runs in that night. My first run i missed 3rd gear and ended up running a 14.6. Still beat the POS civic next to me (16.2 lol)

Yeah I've seen somebody post their hp numbers went up by like almost 15 at the wheels just by cutting the stock airbox and addin a drop in filter, and installin a "universal muffler". He put like 217 at the wheels I believe. Imagine what an aftermarket intake, a throttle body, and a full header-back exhaust system could do!!! And thats before you even get into computer tuning and pulley swappin!!!! These cars will be very fast!!!

There are so many bulit in resrictions in the Cobalt SS and in the Redline that makes them very easy cars to modify.
That's where I think the genius from these cars are at...the srt/cobaltss
The company restricts the chit out of our cars and they are still putting down good numbers, then throw one or two minor mods in there and bam it feels and runs like a totally different car. It gives plenty of room for people to experiment around and do their own thing to improve performance. Just a lot of people would rather sit back, find out all the cheap mods to do and copy everyone elses...by then you have 500 modified yet exactly the same cars driving around.
I am hoping to see quite a few SS's and redline's around when I get back home...Just hope that if I run them and either I win or they win they are not super stupid childish jacka$$'s that just want to run their mouth afterwards. I enjoy a little race here and there and give props to those who deserve it, losing or winning.
