WopOnTour, you said it right in your post,#24. I did use the press for removing my pulley with out a problem, but that's not to say no other Techs would. So, my contrabution to this thread is this:
I recieved many PMs about installation and warranty, my advise; Go to your dealer and ask them IF they have a problem with installing this kit for you, ask them about warranty, ask them WHO will do the install! If they have a problem with any one of these three questions or you do not like the answers, walk away. The reason I say this is, you deserve to have a Tech that "Knows and Cares" about what they are doing on your car. I know this may be hard to find, but it is worth the effort. I, personally, have advised my Parts Dept. and Writers, that I wish to meet and speak to anyone that comes in with questions about these kits or any other matter in referance to Cobalt performance parts and installation.
I just want all of those looking to have these kits installed, to look at more than just price.

No problem, it was a good post. I've stopped moderating this thread for now anyway.

I talked to my dealer about how much it would cost me. Going by stock replacement time they said it would take 1.5 for the injectors, probally an hour for the pulley and belt, god knows how long for the reflash. With the cost of the upgrade rough $1000.00 (parts 637.50 and estimated 4 hours of labor). I'm not quite sure if I want to the upgrade or not now.

Q:Is the reflash the same for stage 1 and stage 2. If they are I do not see a point in getting stage 2, just get an after market pully.

A: ( to earlier question) my GM employee price for stage 2 is $1075 CDN not installed

When running Stage 2 kit with 3.0 pulley, does anyone have the boost bypass done with this setup? Has anyone had boost take a dive towards the end of the power band in any gear?

Do you see more consistant boost with the bypass on this setup?
