I'd love to do some drilled and slotted rotors with LSJ calipers.
What type of rotors are you putting on your car? Stock?

A good set of rotors and pads shouldn't do that. I have not heard of Mini rotors on a cobalt. We have plenty of products out there that should be higher performance. You may have to spend some money though.

Do you have 4 or 5 lug wheels?

Pretty sure only the base base models came with 4 lug wheels.

Yeah I'm 4x100 4 lug, same as the Mini Cooper. It seems like a decent upgrade for pretty cheap. I can get drilled and slotted rotors for a Mini for the same price I can get drilled and slotted rotors for a 4 lug cobalt from Rockauto.com and my cost on NAPA SS/SC front calipers is $56. I'm more curious about the size difference between the LSJ caliper and base model caliper. I might order one and just look at it compared to my factory calipers.

And I just keep throwing NAPA rotors on this car and cutting them down all the time lol. Cut them two or three times then just order some new ones.

I put these on mine as I also had warped rotors and these have been holding up really well. I put these on mine as I also had warped rotors and these have been holding up really well.
I have a little over a year on them as dailies and autocross in the summer.

I actually have a set of front LSJ calipers I was thinking about putting on in the future so if you need some dimensions pulled I can probably help you out with that.

Will a non supercharged block and internals work in a SC car? Like can I take a 2.0 out of an LS or LT and bolt my SC up and go?

the LS and LT have a 2.2 but the rods and pistons are weaker. I'd suggest just sticking to a LSJ bottom end if you already have a supercharged car.

the F35 came in the SS cobalts and some of them came with a LSD so I'm sure its absolutely possible to install a LSD. Base model cars came with the F23 and there are a few LSD options there as well.

Yes you will need a lot of parts to make it work, but not a real difficult project. There should be multiple threads on here about it.

Yes but it doesn't just bolt on. There are a lot of supporting parts required to make it work. Lots and lots of info online about it. The youtube video below should give you a pretty good idea of what it takes.

so I know LSJ Pistons will work in a L61 but has anyone ever ventured to put say, some cheap LSJ pistons from Rockauto.com in their motor? They have Enginetech pistons for $22 a piece. I know you get what you pay for but its not like I'm trying to do some kind of crazy build.

I know LSJ pistons have the same bore diameter but was under the impression they are different because of compression and stroke

Maybe I should have specified I was building a motor for a turbo. So the 9.5 ratio wouldnt be that bad. I'm pretty sure the GMPP ecotec build book lists LSJ rods and pistons as a upgrade for the L61 motor. I guess I need to go verify that.

Yeah as long as the pistons aren't configured differently for the different stroke lengths. I was under the impression that they are. If not I would have definitely considered LSJ pistons because there are more options for them vs. L61. I have some lightly used 2.2 10:1 forged Wiseco pistons I would sell you though I don't think as cheap as what you are looking for.

the different stroke length between the 2.0l and 2.2l would require a shorter connecting rod to run the lsj piston. there is something in the build book about doing this, but it wasnt as straightforward as dumping lsj parts into the l61

I was under the impression that you could just use the LSJ pistons and rods in the L61 as an upgrade. I have a spare block laying around and I am trying to do a real light build on it as cheaply as possible.
