Get a hold of the GM Ecotec build books. Both the 2.2 and 2.0 versions. That will help. They have complete parts lists in them of the stock engines, which you can use to then kit bash them together.

unless i misread the site or if they are fake, andysautosport.com has turbos that fit cobalts. apparently all models. idk. but if someone wants to go there and check it out its a easy site to navigate.

Everybody has "turbos" that fit all Cobalts. The question is, do they have a complete system in a box. No they don't.

The build book does in fact have a complete parts list, but as I said, it's for the J-body cars. You will have to make a few small changes, specifically with the throttle. Yes, it's pretty much the same as the SS. Just go download them (they are free) and read them. There are separate books for the 2.0 and 2.2, but get them both and do some reading.

The AEM F/IC works. However, it will work better if you first have Trifecta tune the car to play nicely with it.

i have an lsj supercharger and planning to put it on my 2007 2.2 cobalt ls but the supercharger has a short spout and in pictures of other s/c ls cobalt the s/c has a long spout and another issue is is that my s/c looks nothing like the lsj s/c i bought off of a donar car so could someone maybe clear this up for me?

Stock bore is fine but you want a lower compression for a turbo setup so go with 8.9:1 Wiesco pistons are good.
