well driving home today after work in the highway i saw a red car up ahead, i saw a distinctive wing on the car and i wonder what it was. so i ease on the gas and come up behind him, i saw a cobalt ss not sure what year it is. so i pass him in a moderate speed and look at the driver looks young maybe mid 20's after looking at him i slowly moved on his lane, as soon as i switch lane he switch to the left lane and lined up on me. so i'm thinking to myself "hell why not" so i drop it in third gear and just floored it so did he but i'm not sure if he drop a gear or not. took third gear all the way up to red line his still by my door switched to fourth gear and that's when he pulled on me. he didn't pull like i was standing still though but he pulled nicely after seeing him pull away the damn passenger wave at me :evil: . he probably pulled on me like 3 car lengths i think we stopped at 120 mph well actually i stoped at that speed cause there's no way in hell i can catch up. didn't really got to talk to the kid but it looks like it's a stock ss. oh well you win some or lose some. i need to put the damn motor on my hatch fast cause i'm getting tired of people beating my ass :cry:

it's not really an exciting story but i figured i should share to you guys here

I believe the SS version comes with a super charger in it, Doesn't it?

correct. 2.2

I thought the SS/SC models had a 2.0 with a Supercharger? :what: My friends got a LS model, and his has a 2.2lt, non supercharged.

there are two ss models.

ss supercharged with the 2.0 and s/c
regular ss with 2.2 no s/c

ss supercharged has the wing and the big wheels, and "supercharged" badging.

The SS just has ss emblems, no wing, no big wheels and no s/c

or it could be 2.2 s/c and 2.4l na. I cant remember.???

ss/sc is no slouch most likely it was not supercharged. As someone said before they run mid 14s stock

the s/c version is just a little slower than an srt4 stock vs stock
it's about on par with a stock wrx in the 1/4mile with a slight advantage to the wrx

SS supercharged: STOCK HP & TQ: 205hp, 195tq 2911 lbs.(dry) My Best E.T. (mods listed below) 14.3 1/4 mile

Screw that...


I'm gunning for a kill on the station wagon version of the Cobalt SS. The HHR limited edition.

retro wagon vs. retro wagon.





...and I will win.
