    I Just started working on my '06 Cobalt LT Automatic and am wanting to do some engine mods.... I just tinted the windows and put some Angel Eye Halo projector headlights in. It has a Flowmaster muffler on it as well. Any suggestions on where to start with beefing up the motor? Really want to get some horse power rolling through it.

    That intake manifold is useless unless he's going turbo.

    What if I put a supercharger on it? Do I really need to run premium fuel?

    premium fuel makes it run right, and its just a difference of 5 bucks or so from reg to premium when filling up so who cares.
