wow, just because the Cobalt SS is slower and more expensive then the SRT-4 , you guys rank on it? thats truly ashamed. Who the hell would want a Supercharged 2.0litre anyways? makes less torque then hp aswell. how pathetic. go read your paid off motor trend magazines some more

the SS badge doesnt even deserve to be put on that car. Chevy has gone overboard since they got rid of the f-bodies :mad:

Hey i like that SS and i dont mind less power and torque the car will be more reliable that a turboed engine. I know this because a turbo is very hard on a engine a supercharger is not that hard on an engine. That is why there are more supercharged engine's most turboed engine's will need new gaskets after a wile of driveing. And don't try and say that i am wrong my dad is a mechanic and he works on car all day long. And he knows alot about turbo's and superchargers.
And BTW i have seen superchared car's with well over 100,000 miles will very little problems. All it needed was a supercharger cone.

so what your telling me, is because daddy is a mechanic, you know that a turboed engine is less reliable? BS. superchargers have been around much longer, and they ise belts, which puts more strain on the engine if you ask me then a turbine

Think about when you put a turbo on a engine you are causeing alot of heat which puts alot of strain on a engine causeing alot of parts to wear out alot quicker. And yes he told me him self that a turbo is much more harmful to a engine than a supercharger. Think about it. How many tubroed engine's have you seen blown up? Me personaly alot.

Go to this site and read.

wow... so because in your experience you have seen a lot of turbos kill cars i am to beleive they are worse? :eek: and tell me how a supercharger doesnt create the same amount of heat? Tell me know, why do you see A LOT more turboed cars then supercharged if they are so damn good? the Cobra.. wow..the cobalt.. the GT and some others. When people do aftermarket work they usually either twin turbo or turbo their cars besides minor things

My GTP has over 105k miles on it and the only problem I've ever had was with one of the pullies seizing up. After driving this car, I don't think I want anything that isn't s/c. No turbo-lag, and an extremely responsive throttle convinced me of that.

Because alot of people use turbo's because they are much easier to get higher hp but you pay with lag and look how many drag cars use a supercharger(blowers) and only now you are seeing more turbos but they are on 4 cylinder engines.

Well the noise is not anoying to me.
BTW Sorry for getting so heated but i hate people telling me that i am wrong when if you do some resarch you will come to find out that supercharger's are much more reliable. And once again sorry and no bad felling twards you. :)

S/c on a 4 cyl = gettin owned by turbo boost....

Lag is necessary to get a good hole shot on a FWD making 20+ psi... so my lag will cut a nice sub 2.0 short on the 1/4 while your still sittin there doing a nice john force style burnout.... lol
