what turbo/exh manifold will you want to run? there is a limitation to what you can fit in the engine bay!

You could do a compound. They make about 700 right?

Well I have the one off zzp turbo cobalt log manifold but I'm not sure it will be completely compatible with the way the sky's engine bay is setup.

Take anything Jeb says about compound turbos or ZZP with a HUGE grain of salt. (and by huge, I mean an iceberg sized grain)

Be a part of the solution!

Yes, and know of some pushing more then that, but on the stock 2.4L on the Solstice, 350whp is at the upper limits of what you would want to run daily on a stock bottom end for reliability. The stock 2.4L pistons are not designed to see those kind of cylinder pressures/temps with their upper ring lands.

Congratulations! Have you had the car dynoed yet? Is it stock other than an intake and tune?

What did you end up doing with the Cobalt?

Congrats. Nice to hear you are enjoying it.

I assume by 50/50 E85 you mean E47

Ya I absolutely love it honestly! I didn't do any kind of Dyno yet, still just slightly checking up on the car and seeing what's up. It came bone stock though yes. And I still have the cobalt and here soon the motor swapping should be going underway. Thanks guys

I figured as much, but just wanted to make sure it wasn't something crazy like race fuel with E85
10 degrees of extra timing makes a HUGE difference on our motors.
I could not believe how much more power it gave my Sky when I switched to E47.
It was night and day

yessir! See I'm from the cobalt world. In my cobalt I had the LNF motor and had it all built and big turbo and yada yada, putting down 572 WHP. with a few manifold changes and turbo change because the manifold isnt the same on the sky from the cobalt. Also I just want a bigger turbo lol. Now with rwd, the sky is the limit
