I was so into the K series honda engine running in NA form, cause my friend has one in his 4 door honda civic Si. It has an intake, full exhaust, and a tune. I think it rips pretty good, and if that was in a Miata, it would be great. Then I guess my friend got a wake up call...
He was driving to work the other day and a brand new Cobalt SS was on his ***. He down shifted and stood on it thinking he would pull away, but he told me he looked in his mirror and the Cobalt was right on his bumper and probably could've passed him. So he was all pissed off and googled what a brand new Cobalt SS turbo puts out. 260hp/260ft/lbs??? and they run a 14 flat in the 1/4 STOCK??? I hate the Cobalt's, but those numbers are pretty stout for a bone stock rebadged cavalier with a turbo.

So should I stop spending $ on my miata to make it track happy?

Just track a bone stock SS?

F that noise. My friend with the civic also has a 2000 Si with a B16 and a GT28RS turbo. It makes 320whp at 10psi. We bitch about our cars to eachother all the time, and one day he wants to sell his black car, and the next day he loves it. We made a deal the other day that we both have to list our cars for sale and if we get the money we want for them, we must sell them and buy what we really want. I really would like the black Z06 vette that's at the local car lot right now, and he really wants an S2000. A few hours go buy and I tell him, dude, I love my car and I can't sell it. I mean seriously can't, cause I'd ask 9 grand for it and if somebody showed me 8 grand cash it would go. If Cjernigan can't get that much for his car, who the hell would pay that for mine?
I'll just leave it turbo'd and drive it around with no more than 225 whp and bitch every other day.

Didn't you watch the SCCA runoffs either last season or the season before? The retard announcer went on for 25 minutes before the first big race about how these 3 S2000s were the big competition to beat, and nothing on the track could touch them. blah blah blah.

Ending results were:

1 Colbalt SS
2 Colbalt SS
3 S2000

Those fugly *** colbalts are quick stock. Pulley, heat exchanger upgrades, programming of factory PCM.. Makes them monsters. As for the turbo cars....... Even more so.

Wowsers. I actually looked at getting one before buying my Forester XT. They were ******* expensive! Especially the turbo ones.

BTW I've whored on several cobalt rental cars before and they handled surprisingly well and were actually kind of fun. If I got a cobalt SS I def would have apply stick-on fender vents.

Why does everyone say that? The Cobalt underpinnings are Opel and doesn't really have anything in common with the Cavalier.

because it comes with an ecotec and most people don't know better, and think just cause it replaced the cavalier in the cheby lineup that its a cavalier.

89-95 Taurus SHO. Best sleeper ever. I had one that dynoed at 250 wheel all motor with just bolt ons. 100hp wet shot added soon after. Absolute blast.
