and all of this is info i found off this forum, so look around and you'll be sure to find everything you need!

hey guys thanks i appriciate it, what exhaust would you guys think sounds better on the L61 borla catback or dc sports single can cat back??
i have borla now and sounds good but not sure what dc sports single can sounds like anyone know?

will 2004 2.2 ecotec cavi tsudo 4-2-1 headers fit on my 05 2.2 ecotec cobalt i saw some on ebay and christmas is coming up...so i was wondering if there would be any crazy problems i would run into...if it dosent fit at all or just some little mods because i want to do it in my garage. let me know guys that would be awesome. im new to the whole cobalt world and really dont know about the 4 banger thing but im addicted to it. i need some help on this one guys so any suggestions would be great. the header is 230 bucks and is pretty sweet compared to the pacesetter black ones. just let me know if it would work. Thanks

Simple answer is no. It will fit the engine, but not the engine compartment or the rest of the exhaust system. You would have to do some fabricating, and after the money you spend doing it, you might as well just buy the right one to start with.

The exhaust manifold is specifically designed to route the exhaust gases from the engine to the cars exhaust system. You have the right engine, but the wrong car. What you would have to do would depend on the header itself. If its a shorty header, forget it. If its a long tube header, then you would have to cut off the bottom of the collecter and have pipe welded into place to match up with your stock stuff. Its just not worth it, but the right stuff to start with.

I am unaware of the 2007 L61 manifold being any different from previous years. The only specific difference I know of is if you have SAI. An aftermarket header (LSJ or otherwise) will work fine unless you have SAI.

some guy just told me that its not a good idea to get a manifold back exhaust system for the 2.2 cause it will cause the CEL. what does that mean? im new to this car i just got it in october, and i really dont want to waste money on items that will cause problems later. i did plan on getting the honed manifold an aftermarket downpipe with highflow cat and the gmpp sport catback....id this not a good idea? and is it gonna cause me not to be able to get my car inspected?..... from what this other guy said it manifold back exhaust will cause this problem cause there is no way to tune the 2.2L

A "CEL" means Check Engine Light. It's commonly used in place of the correct name which is "MIL", meaning Malfunction Indicator Light.

On the Cobalt, there are three possible things that can cause an aftermarket exhaust to trigger a CEL. The first two are the Oxygen Sensors. There is one pre-cat and another post-cat. As long as your new system has provisions for mounting the sensors, there should be no issue.

The third only exists on models equipped with SAI. See the information thread on that here:

if you buy a cam do you have to change anything else to make it work properly?

Depends what stage you purchase, if you stay mild, you dont need to change much, if anything.

2.4l throttle body

Where can i order a 2.4l cobalt throttle body? I have a 2.2l, but i want the bigger 2.4l one. And if i happen to order the 2.4l throttle body, will my injen intake still fit?

10-30-06: Added parts
9-25-06: Updated air injection intake info
9-8-06: Added Head Gasket section
8-25-06: news concerning exhaust manifold secondary air injection and added Cam shaft section.

Intakes
Currently, the K&N system is the only one known to accomdate 2006 cars equipped with air injection.
1. GMPP
2. Injen
3. AEM BTW, AEM uses CobaltSS.net as an independent product review source!
4. K&N
5. Fujita
6. Weapon R Couldn't find a Cobalt specific application

Internals
1. GMPP - Get the new PDF catalog HERE
2. Ferrea Valve train parts. Download their catalog for Ecotec part numbers
3. Eagle Rotating assemblies (cranks and rods)
4. Wiseco Pistons
5. Patriot Heads Cylinder heads
6. Bates engineering. They make all kinds of Ecotec parts.
7. Diamond Racing. They make a unique pistons that keeps the 10:1 compression ratio but dishes the top for forced induction.

Cam Shafts

L61, LSJ, and LE5 cams are not interchangable. L61 and LSJ cams can be used in an LSJ head on an L61 block, but that's a pretty advanced modification.

2007 L61's now use a cam position sensor. These cams will not work on that engine.

LSJ cams have a position sensor as well. I don't know if they may now work in a 2007 L61 head.

1. GMPP - Part #88958648 from the new 2006 Catalog
2. Comp Cams
3. Level Zero

Head Gaskets
There are two different types of head gaskets for the L61. One is the stock design. The other uses O-rings that must have recieving grooves machined into the block and head. The stock configuration should be good for applications under 500HP when used with head studs. I'm looking for sources, so please post your links.
1. Cometic

Headers
In late production 2006, secondary air injection was added to the design of the car. This is an emission control system that routes fresh air into the exhaust manifold via a mounting provision on the manifold itself. Aftermarket manifolds for this car DO NOT have this mounting provision. 2005 model cars should have no problems.
1. GMPP
2. TOG - No longer in business, ZZP has some units
3. ZZP
4. Pacesetter
5. GM LSJ
6. Hahn Race Craft
7. Cobalt Addictions
8. Clear Image
9. Intense
10. Shiney-Hiney

Downpipes
1. XTC by Cobalt Addiction
2. Hahn Racecraft
3. Intense
4. ZZP

Exhausts
1. GMPP
2. Corsa
3. Borla
4. Hahn Race Craft
5. Magnaflow
6. DC Sports
7. Vibrant
8. XTC by Cobalt Addiction
9. Pacesetter Monza Cobalt application not listed, but they do make one.
10. Random Technology Cobalt application not listed, but they do make one.
11. Street Power. Couldn't find a web site, but they make one.
12. Stainless Works. Cobalt is listed but no product yet. They do make one.
13. ARK Performance

so theres no header for the cobalts with SAI
