In, had a pretty productive weekend. Enjoyed sat hanging out with dad going to a car show and traveling to pick up some parts for my wagon. Guy I met up with was super cool, had a sweet all original 67 galaxie hardtop sedan, and let me score everything he had that would fit my 66 for super cheap since he didn't need any of it. 120 bucks for a easy 600-700 dollars worth of parts, some being pretty rare and fairly hard to find.

So after traveling around for 2 weeks, drivers based on States and what I think:

New York: Standard. Most obey the laws
Pennsylvania: Same as NY
West Virginia: Same as NY
Virginia: Opioid crisis confirmed
North Carolina: Speedy, but use signals for the most part
South Carolina: Same as NY, but a lesser %
Georgia: 50/50 douche/good driver
Florida: Pedal to the metal, signals are sticker or decorations most of the time
Tennessee: Same as NC
Missouri: Same as NY
Kentucky: There's retarded, then there's a human vegetable. Below that are Kentucky drivers. Dear lord.
Ohio: Same as NC

Tennessee observation is accurate for about 75% of the state. Minimum speed is 5 over. Slowest speed overall is 40-45 though, even in 25-35 zones. Btw its a good thing you didn't roll through a couple days later, was mid 90's with 70-80% humidity.

I was in Nashville on Saturday. It was ok in the morning, blazing hot in the afternoon, then a(nother) torrential downpour.
I was floating around between Louisville, St. Louis, Nashville and Cincinnati the last couple of days. I still have to calculate out my trip.

EDIT: So after using google maps, and estimations of travel, I've gone: 7,686.3KM / 4,777.07 miles in 12 days.

Greetings, wise Cobalt overlords. I've been getting a CEL intermittently for awhile. P0133. I thought it was likely just from the K&N SRI (untuned) but yesterday while flipping through the RPD it said No Data Available on the a/f gauge. Everything else still working fine. A/f is reading fine on the interceptor. Any ideas? I thought maybe O2 sensor was wonky but not sure if the RPD and interceptor data from the same place.

Im not sure. Im assuming these cars are simple enough to not care, although you may want to reset the transmission adaptives. I dont believe they have different gearing ones, at least between the cobalt models.

None of the gearing was different for the cobalts 4t45e but in 05 you could have been given a 4t40 or 4t45 though. Otherwise its not required but it is recommended. There was different calibrations for 2.2 vs 2.4. Mostly for shift calculations, at minimum I would recommend resetting the shift adapts. The main issue you may have is if you don't reprogram its possible you could set a torque request code P2544. Should only occur if you put a 2.4 trans in a 2.2 or vise versa
