Would be nice... then, ill be mister popular. lol already, im debating on a new exhaust system, even though its already nice, but i think ill build a custom corsa exhaust. I did this for a friends cobalt ss, and it sounds amazing.. like a v8. ill see if i can get the sound file.

I will say the ecotech engine is very strong. and to support a supercharger with 12 psi. thats not to bad. Its a great engine, but crapy car. the lsd sucks, and it is just to plain on the inside... give me by june... ill blow it outta the water F*** the warranty. Never used one on my truck, it was procharged, (waste of money) but was fun as hell... so ill be doing the same to the civic. :)

well said. I was watching Street Tuner Challange and they dynoed a base cobalt ss, and it put 212 down at the wheels. That is good numbers for a 4 cyl., but like you said the interior just plain sucks on the cobalt. I test drove also and there is really no comparison between the Si and the cobalt.

The Cobalt interior is crap. But the ecotec is a solid engine. I believe they have cranked that up to 1000 hp in some of the dragsters they race with.

I bought mine off the lot in March, had like 3 to choose from, but 2 of the cars came straight from the Honda Classic Golf Tournament in PGA National in Palm Beach. I took the white one. Hey I guess this makes my car kind of famous. It might have been on TV. I guess I'll have to TiVo the golf channel and see if I can find a rerun of it.
