When I make my cars faster I rebuild engines or drop a stroker kit in. This S/C will be my first on my 2SS. Not deaf, just very badly informed on Cobalts, Neons, and that class of cars.
man the sound of a supercharger versus a turbocharger is unmistakable

It didn't sound like the older GT500s with the whine as it accelerated. It had the sound when he shifted. So why keep trying to seem like you are so much better because you know the difference and elaborate.

Oh yeah

I are teh betta.

I kno teh differences in sound.

It was probably a turbo car if it sounded like a turbo car or


here is idea of the century! Why not listen to both of them on youtube!

Well according to the race I had.....I blew that cheap little piece of crap Cobalt out of the water. Get a real car. Turbocharged or Supercharged, doesn't matter to me when I'm spanking it down the track and it needs extra things to keep up. And it's usually hard to tell the difference in the sound when it is so far behind and the rumble of my V-8 drowns it out.

And I am the one acting like I am better.

Right.



Believe what you wanna believe.

I still know what a turbo or a supercharger sounds like and I don't post street races on a forum that asks specifically not to post em.

Wow......you can tell a sound apart. Congrats. Did you have to go to college for that or are you like a 17 year old on his mommys computer past his bedtime. I do believe a Cobalt of any kind is a far inferior car. I'm not the only one. Im sorry you couldn't afford one. Sounds like a typical douchebag like the driver I encountered in the other Cobalt. Basically a rice burner and a crotch rocket is what I see. Which means couldn't get a fast car and couldn't get a good bike. And not a street race, do you think I care what a website thinks of my post? If I were to get banned then that's too bad. I actually have a life away from my computer. And it's not like this is the only Camaro site in the world bud.

Thanks for the entertainment at work.

Typical douche bag eh?

I come in here trying to figure out which one you raced, and ask a few questions and you start crying. Not my problem. I can get paid to watch you cry, moan, and talk about the rumble of your V8 awesomesos.

Here you keep on taking personal attacks at me like you are 5, and it stemmed because you are too stupid to speak up about what sound you heard.

Pathetic.

Grow up.

Why does the sound matter to you anyways. So you can figure out if your car was like the one that got smashed. What are you a security guard? You came in saying, man you must be deaf if you couldn't tell and saying oh it is unmistakeable like I should automatically know. You should have said oh, well a supercharger kind of sounds like _____, while a turbo sounds more like _____. Instead you try to make someone seem dumb and make yourself seem great because you can tell a sound. WOW! Impressive for you. I assure you I am grown. Obviously grown enough to not have a crappy night job where all I do is surf the net. No wonder you have that attitude.

Im still not sure, I haven't ever smelled it before. Just assumed it was some kind of spray. I don't and will never use the stuff so I didn't know too much about it. My buddy said that it could have been Nos because he races imports alot and he said that although it is supposed to be odorless, sometimes you get a smell from the exhaust when something is not working like it should.

How do you know what I do for a living because of what time I work?



Seriously.

All I am trying to get a gauge for was which Cobalt you raced.

Because you could run into a few that would have upset you on a roll race.

PS Security Guards don't get a GM Supplier's discount for being security guards.

My own car, before demodded, would easily make short work of a stock Camaro SS from a roll.

Am I saying at all Cobalts are better than Camaros?

Only in the instance of bolted and tuned aggressively versus stock yes.

And if I really thought my Cobalt was a better car, I would keep it instead of trading it in on a Maro.

Who said that jackass.........If you were at work and in the military you wouldn't be on here bud. Even if it was working overnight. And I'm sure that a modded car would take a stock car.....duh! And If I was worried about getting my feelings hurt by a Cobalt I would just take my Trans Am out and spit dust all over its windshield. With a tune, or whatever it may have. Congrats about GMS discount, but I don't need any discounts.

Who has their panties in a bunch? You have no idea what is going on. Some guy comes in trying to make others feel dumb and that is your reaction. Wow.

basically, because I am at work right now I am a loser OH and I need a discount, don't make enough money to afford a 'real' bike or a 'real' car.

Both of those must by imaginary then.

You brought it up. I didn't say anything about a GMS discount. Like it matters or something. Anyone can get one if they try hard enough. It's called negotiating.

What kind of productive job has you sitting on a Camaro site chatting then. Can't be a great one, at least no respectful job I have ever had or know of lets you surf the net. You brought up the discount, not me. Oh yeah cause I said they were imaginary.......a real bike as in a Harley, or a real car as in something fast and worth the money.
