    I come in peace...

    Hello, My name is levi. I'm currently a freshman at The University of Colorado.

    I drive a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS/SC, GMPP Stage 2 + PB 2.8, GMPP full exhaust + magnaflow High flow cat, K&N CAI, Ingalls ETD and traction bars. It gets dynoed next week.

    Im a memeber at Cobaltss . net and and a proud member of Rocky Mountain Ecotec.

    Ive always respected WRX's and STI's. A few of my friends have WRX's and STI's in various states of fastness and I decided to join your site and learn, that is if I'm welcome.

    Ive read a few posts and really liked what i saw. If anyone has any questions on Cobalts in general Id be glad to help and i look forward to learning more about your cars.

    Cool! No one here is gonna bash you for what car you drive (unless they're jerks). It's just the trolls who come on here going My CaR PwnZzjors WRX's!!!! who we don't like. Everyone is here to learn about cars too. Besides, any real enthusiast has respect for all cars and car people, be it lowriders, muscle, imports, euro etc...How do you like the SS? I hear they're great bang for the buck, and pretty quick to boot. I've never ridden or gotten a very close look at them. If i'm not mistaken they have the ecotec supercharged engine? 205 hp? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Welcome to the Club! How do you like that Cobalt? I've seen quite a few but never had a chance to talk to a driver.

    welcome from another relative new comer

    Hey leviticus88,
    Welcome.

    When I bought my '06 WRX Wagon, I was actually looking for a Saturn Ion Redline, a mechanical twin to the Cobalt SS (2.0L) and couldn't find one to my liking. Saturn had shut down the '06 production and they weren't even sure they were going to get any '07s as they were trying to bring in the Aura. I'd have bought a Cobalt, but, I can't sit in the things as I'm 6'4". Neat little car, though. I think the WRX and ION RL or Cobalt SS (2.0L) offer very similar mixtures of sport and practicality. The only thing I see that the WRX has over the SS is AWD. Not that the AWD is a small thing, but, the RL and Cobalt SS are a riot to drive with just the front two pulling. I think a RL or Cobalt SS with a smaller SC pulley would probably out run a WRX. You might loose a little from a dig, but, that ecotec motor is a neat little plant and the Super Charger gives good torque all the way across the RPM band.

    Enjoy the Cobalt!

    Those supercharged Cobalts are a great performance buy, and from what I've seen it looks like they've really stepped up the interior quality and such. Enjoy the car!

    lol, I love my whine (very loud since the intake). If it had a swooosh sound at the end I'd be in heaven.

    Ya, the car is a little on the small side (especially the back seat but it works for now. And ya, fwd is annoying sometimes everything is a trade off.
