With these cars, its all about tuning. You can do the basics i.e. Intake, Exhaust, Injectors, Cooling. None of this will really help you though without a proper tune. When done properly, these mods will really wake your car up. Everything is controlled through the computer though, including boost.

If your not worried about warranty, then that's a good place to start. Stage kits sold outside the dealer usually put out more power than what GM sells. If you do want warranty kept, then you will have to go through the dealer. Aftermarket intake and cat-back exhausts will help you as well and will not void warranties

I guess I'm lokoing for best BANG for the $$$ I have $500 set a side for mods and it looks like I can get a STG kit with heat exchanger for that.. But would the stock intake and exhaust be too restrictive??

stage 1 kit is prety much just a chip programer. you can find it at autoanything.com its the vortex by superchips. this will give you 40 more hp setting you at 300 hp. also you can do custom tunes with it and use it on more than one car. it's the best bang for your buck.

What to do

Hey guys, just got my 07' Cobalt SS/SC. Looking to put some mods on it. Is the "Stage 2 Kit" really only $500 with installation and ecu recalibration?? Also would like to get and intake and exhaust. Don't want a REALLY loud exhaust. Any suggestions. Also will be purchasing headlights soon (Halo HID Projection). Don't know what housing to go with though?? Chrome or Black?? I see most people put the black ones on. My car is a dark red color, thinkin the black would look good no matter what color the car is. Hit me back with some opinions

HID's are really expensive when they need to be replaced. Magnaflow sells some pretty good stuff. I'd seriously go with the Hahn 3" Catback and DP they seem to be a pretty good sound
