The have potential yes. I think i read up on that chevy cobalt beating skylines but i think i remember that chevy was the only million dollor car company tuning a car in that competion, while all others were just tuning shops. So im sure they could through alot more money into to it. Now i dont know for sure so dont quote me haha. Just what i thought i remember reading, hell i dont even know if we are talking about the same thing. But i do know one thing the car im talking about had the worst paintjob ever..all rainbowness and nasty. Although it did kick some a--.

im gonna raise the bs flag on this one, first off there is no such thing as a grand prix ss , and i doubt you beat the cobalt ss as those run low 14's all day long, also post your times for all the corresponding races, and then the bs flag may be taken down.......



My ZE runs low 14's ....cobalts are't that fast

rudy your car is about a sec or less at a lower altitude. if u run around a 14.5 here its around high 13s at sea level. Its been confirmed. Like that miata guy from the elpasoracing site. He runs a 17.8 in el paso and at the shore he ran like a 16.9

Well first off somebody said that the altitiude does not matter when boosted. That is incorrect, the higher in altitude u are located the less oxygen there is in the air. It is true that in terms of volume your engine sucks up the same amount of air but at a higher altitude that air will contain less oxygen in it just like at sea level it will contain more oxygen. Oxygen is what burns the gas, less oxygen= less power. It is important to remmember that temperture will have an affect on engines on a hot day you will not runs as fast as you do on a cold day or at nighttime. All these things are rarely ever posted along with the 1/4 times, i think that is why so many ppl are confused. I am personaly quite elevated but so is every other car in my city so i dont care so much about times as beating other cars.

My best time was 15.3 @ 3000 feet. I guess i can break 14 at lower altitude. h22s here run high 16.

Ok went again, was ok i guess. My car is running a bit better now. I only lost to a turbo prelude by like a car. I was tied with powered by hks aka rudy, beat a super charged saturn ion, stock acura integra type r, honda accord vtec. I let a kid win in an s10, he was with his dad and seemed excited about it so i decided to make his day and pretend i lost. It made me feel good.
