    I was originally going to get a G5 GT until I discovered the Turbalt made 260hp so it seems my best course of action would be to get a Cobalt SS and put G5 GT fascias on it. My question is can the stock Cobalt SS front and rear lips be applied to G5 GT front and rear bumper covers with minimal modification?
    Thanks,
    -Quintin

    the lips can. yes.
    only that that wont fit is the back bumper (full bumper cover itself)
    but there is many g5s with the ss lip kit kickin around.

    Nice that's pretty much what I was going for except with the cobalt ss motor! I love that hood

    Just out of curiosity, how difficult are the 2.0 liters to squeeze horse power out of? I don't need a lot as I'm building a '78 Trans am with a built up LS series motor in it so my Cobalt is just going to be a cool little driver but there's nothing wrong with making it just a little bit quicker if it doesn't require a ridiculous amount of money or time.

    Do you mean it won't fit with cobalt ss tail lights in or do I have to change something other than the tail lights and trunk lid?

    The g5 bumper has to be slotted to accept the cobalt lip. The lnf is detuned from the factory so making power is only a tune away.
