Another update to the fleet

I think this is probably the 30th time I've written that header.

The Camaro is gone. I got an offer of 6500 and sold it.

Anybody that has an F-body or a 99-2002 V8 powered GM I have a Diablosport Predator that will work for it.

I'm thinking of adding the money I got from the Camaro to the Hyundai and buying a Cobalt SS as my DD.

Still have the Vette. Still have the Hyundai. Still have the Jet -Ski.

You ll love the balt as a dd if you do get it. i have a redline as a dd and cant think of a car id rather have as a dd. small, light, 4 doors, plenty of leg room, huge trunk(unlike the balt) great gas mileage(once you get rid of the stock super rich tune) cheap and easy to maintain, reliable, quick and nimble, inconspicuous and responds great to mods.

I think it's going to take a lot to get a Cobalt SS into the 11's. With just a vararam intake and DR's the C5 Z06 will run deep into the 11's. Cranking the boost to the levels you need to do that on the Cobalt may not be possible with a stock turbo. If it is you need to wonder if the internals will survive. On top of that it's still a Cobalt.

As a DD they are great cars. Fun and surprisingly quick, Mustang GT quick with a few little mods. A C5 Z06 is just a whole bunch more car.

What's the point of this post? Do you really think that someone who owns a C5 Z06 cares about that? Seriously! If it will be faster than a C5 Z06 in a straight line it will also be faster than a GTO. Does that change the fact that you like your GTO? I doubt it. See my point?

WOAH... Slow you horses!! And i meant a stock Vette NON ZO6 And i was just saying I mean look at the specs Twin Charged Cobalt should net around 400h.p. to the wheels I've seen as high as 460 but usually 400-430 then combine that with a curb weight of 3000lbs and boom.

I was really just saying it was very capable car,(and notice how i said straight line ) didn't you guys ever see this commercial :p





11 sec cobalt

Also 11 sec cobalt

What's your point? Both of those clips show the Vette to be better, and should we try to find the fastest Vette u-tube video?

For how much it would cost to build a Cobalt that could post those numbers consistently and not break parts, plus the price of the Cobalt itself, you might as well buy the Vette.

Though if I were to do a project like that, I'd go back to the J-body platform and use a Sunbird. Talk about sleeper...

That the cobalt is a fun car and has potential and that the op should be happy, Do you really hate the cobalt or something?
