Ha. My dad got some noise complaints from his HOA about his motorcycle exhaust. At the next meeting he apologized and said it's really only loud when my mom is riding with him, due to the increased RPMs. Didn't go well for him either.

LOL Bolt ons and a tune is where its at for those of us not concerned with finding those extra .08 on the strip. Disclaimer....I'm no pro but I've put easily 180-200 passes at the strip in my DD's test n tunes and appx 60 passes 12.50 bracket racing. For a DD, those extra few lbs don't mean sh*t to me on the roads. Track IS a little different though and I agree with that

For every 100 lbs reduction you'll lose a tenth in the 1/4. Yeah only .10.

I'm not going out of my way to reduce a ton of weight to save the equivalent of an eye blink on the track. Simple and obvious ones sure!
If I was THAT worried about weight.... I wouldn't be going from a 2,970lb Cobalt to what will feel like a 70 ton tank.
Some on here will take it that serious, not THIS GUY :P

So when you get your 1LE, you'll driving a car 1,000 pounds heavier than your current car. But you will also have 100+ hp to deal with also, so maybe not that big of a difference. Not.

Not really because I'm boosting it, with headers intake high flow cats and tuning. From what I've seen that should put me around 540 to 570 wheel horsepower easily

I might be wrong here, but with the mods listed there, I don't thing you're going to get another 200 horsepower from those. I think base rwhp on SS is 370.

If a tvs2300 gives right at 500RWHP(and it does). Then all I need is another 50RWHP. Headers; add a better intake or filter than comes with the SLP kit; put hi-flow cats into the dual mode exhaust and re-tune. That will get 50 more IMO.
Your correct @ 370RWHP base. I've seen MANY sigs with full bolt-ons and a tune in the mid 500s. Might need a different pulley at best

My bad, I didn't see you were adding a supercharger.

LOL! I'd be straight RETARDED if I though a couple bolt-ons and a tune without boosting would give 200WHP! ha Id sound like a civic driver that thinks an exhaust tip will help him pull on Mustangs! hahahaahha

That said, save your money on the blower and just get some stickers.

With a blower equal more weight in front as well and more understeer, handling wise you will feel a big difference.

To the Mods...could you please make this a sticky. It has a lot of vital information as to whether this would make a viable option for those interested in adding this package. Thank You.

Fun-fact...as we all know, the ZL1 is supercharged...yet it's Fr/Rr weight balance actually is improved vs the SS.

I'm sure we can do that!

I'm very curious to hear what everyone thinks when they get their 1LE. What an awesome car!

Of course...if you don't option up for the dual-mode exhaust, I'll have to beat you over the head....

GULP!! Can I put my helmet on first?

I found out how great they are and wanted to upgrade after I got a production date, but I didn't want to delay delivery, so I'll have to go to plan B.

A shame....there are some very nice sounding aftermarket systems out there. I have to pump Tom Henry Racing...only because I've been up close and personal to several of his cars with different muffler configurations - they sound great!
