I can only say,likely, for now. Keith is going over what he wants for other projects and what I will have left.
As soon as I find out, hopefully later this week, I will post them up.

I just double checked and because this is the "2.0 performance" section and not "parts" I guess we can let that go.

Some people might find it strange that so many of us are waiting to see a Cobalt all cut up.

IIRC the problem you are having has something to do with the hydraulic function of the clutch. My clutch will not be hydraulic so I am not anticipating any issues.

Update

Some news on the project.
We now have the camshafts done. We are going with billet shafts and a radical custom grind from Bates Engineering.
The car is now completely stripped and gutted. The cutting has started and there should be pics next week.
After looking at different options for the large turbo we have chosen to go with the Garrett GT4508R http://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbob...45/GT4508R.htm . As you will see this turbo will leave no doubt about us achieving the 750whp goal. The problem will be, where the heck does JBP put it???? I told Mev that he is not allowed to mount it to the roof. Good thing we are not totally restricted by a stock engine bay. The other large turbo we have, I believe a gt35, will be offered up for sale next week, as soon as I have all the proper specs for it.
Also I have been informed that the stock gauge cluster is out in favour of a custom set up for the complete line of Autometer "Cobalt" gauges.
The custom bellhousing should be sent out early next week for SFI approval.
Sorry there are no pictures yet, as this is the start of a long weekend and everyone took off early. Next week should bring nice pics.

it's t-76 Q-trim .96 a/r if you want to contact turbonetics on the exacts... the serial number is 18866 I think. Big shaft, ceramic ball bearing setup... I know it puts out like 1200cfm at 12psi or something rediculous like that

I know it sucks... best thing to do is contact them with the serial number and they'll give you all the specs since it was a custom built turbo... I know it's good up to about 750 psi and good to @950 hp on a 2.0 ltr 4 cylinder

it was on my friends car for a weekend, he drove about 100 miles and cracked the frame, turbo's been sitting ever since at my house capped at the ends waiting to be put in something. If worse comes to worse, I"m pickin up another monte carlo in a week or two, and he's giving me the DFI setup for it for like $450, I have all the piping, intercooler, and a racegate MKII and godzilla blow off to play with...

I won't be able to get a hold of turbonetics until next week, (which day is your stat holiday?) and I also won't find out if Garrett haas shipped the GT-45 until next week either.
I guess a concern would be having to run at peak efficiency for the power needed, as I prefer to have "more" over just "enough"
