  1. From what I've read from Car and Driver and Motortrend: Luckily, a lot of the pieces are already in place. GM's LS small-block line is a living legend, developed at the zenith of the art and science (pun intended) of internal combustion. It produces a staggering 668 hp and 659 lb-ft of torque—numbers up 28 hp and 29 lb-ft compared to the CTS-V's LT4 engine, thanks to a freer-flowing intake, an upgraded supercharger that creates more boost down low, and a smaller but more efficient intercooler.
  2. Why not just do a flat core fee?? It's kind a nonsense if you ask me. Pay $699 right on site and then have kinda bogus 8 credits at $49.99 for another $400... Why not just say, hey $900 or whatever amount total and its programmed......its deceiving! Because all you see up front is the $699
  3. What exactly are credits?? Why do they charge credits?? Seems like everywhere now a days charges extra 'stupid" fees
  4. Get the full Borla or Corsa catback. That gets rid of the horrible flappers, and you won't have the drone. plus it free up a few extra HP/TQ. You are always risking having drone by just adding a muffler. Corsa and Borla do intensive research on their full catbacks. I have the Corsa and its fantastic, and others who have the Borla say the same. Did it right the first time.
  5. Here is a choice https://www.diablosport.com/uncategorized/2021-gm-5-3-6-2-gas-truck-tuning-now-available/ or go to HPTuners website. Superchips also make a hand held tune.
  6. When I bought my 2019. I bought it over the phone and when I showed up it was everything I wanted except for a small dent on the rear back door. They tried PDRing it but it was in an area that they couldn’t get too. So they would have to sand down area and pull out and repaint whole door. I said hell no. So they said ok, we will just pull off the back door of this black high country and swap it out. They did it and it’s perfect and I don’t have to worry about it being repainted. Feel sorry for the other customer that bought other truck but they truly would never know if it did or didn’t have a new door. as for OP. I’d ask for a different hood. Or get it repainted. I’m like you. I’m very OCD with my vehicles. I also name everyone of them I own.
  7. The funny thing about all of this is that I've heard they got excellent MPGs too if you just drove them normal down the highway, 30 mpgs was not unheard of, which is crazy for a car that could scoot that fast. What was your experience. My best friends son has a 2006 impala SS with corsa exhaust, K/N CAI, and mild tune and he can achieve 26 mpgs running 75 up I29 interstate to sioux falls. That 4 speed really hindered the Impala and Trailblazer, GM really needed to put Tremec 6 speed manual in them like they did with the little SSR pickup truck...or just a regular 6 speed. Really would have helped both vehicles out tremendously https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a18201910/chevrolet-ssr-short-take-road-test/
  8. Doesn't it always come down to emissions?? UGH!!! I just read an article about the Durango Hellcat no longer being in development because the motor no longer can meet the emissions requirement......sad, because they are bad looking rig!! I just couldn't bring myself to put down $80k for a Durango and Dodge product.....
  9. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a18201562/chevrolet-cobalt-ss-supercharged-short-take-road-test/ I did find this article and it has it at 5.9 secs..
  10. That's very interesting because all the magazines 0-60 and quarter mile times had the turbo faster. But, hey, you had one and found the right way to drive/launch it and that's awesome man! https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a18203307/chevrolet-cobalt-ss-supercharged-first-drive-review/ They had it at 6.1 Secs and the 2009 at 5.5 Secs. I know its a magazine but .6 tenths is a ton. either way those little cars were a real sporty/sleeper of a car back in the day.
  11. Here is that article https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a15144400/2009-chevrolet-cobalt-ss-sedan-short-take-road-test/
  12. Yes those turbo cobalts flew didn't they!! GM had a nice batch of go fast cars, suvs, and trucks from 03-09 It is shame on GM because everything is right there in house to build rock solid "SS" vehicles right now, and we all know they would sell, Hell, just look at Dodge with the charger and challenger. 15 year old platforms, all they do is add HP and off it goes
  13. My buddy has a 2019 Range Rover Sport with Carbon Fiber package. Loves the vehicle. I have to say man does it ride nice. The thing moves really well for the amount of WEIGHT those things have.
  14. Then in 2008 they switched over from a supercharger to a turbo and the Cobalt went even faster!! They were a stealthy little car. You also had the Impala SS with the 5.3L and it was a sleeper and munch GT mustangs stock for stock. I had the Trailblazer SS and loved it. AWD and 6.0L would really scoot! Then from 03-06 was the SS Silverado. That truck had one of the best stances in my honest opinion. Just looked sinister, yet “classy “ all in one package. I just bought a new Traverse Premier Redline for my wife in September and the 3.6L is nice, but I would absolutely love a 5.3L in it. The ride on the Traverse is amazing. This EV push right now will fade. The surplus isn’t there and neither is the demand.
  15. Gorgeous color. Looks almost deep blue from that angle. Love the tint. My sons god father owns his own tint business and that is always one of the first upgrades I get. MPGs will always vary between drivers and trucks. There are guys on forum here that can get close to 22 with their 6.2Ls. I’ve never come close to that. I’m right at 19.5-20 mpgs. Your truck will loosen up a bit and you can squeak out better mileage as long as you aren’t getting into that “turbo” too much. And from what I hear/read from other guys. It’s a fun little engine and loves to be spoiled up. It’s the only engine I haven’t driven yet. Can’t find one on the lots. The new one should be even better with rumored now 430 lbs of TQ. Congrats and enjoy your new truck.
