I'm new

cobalt-ss-engine.jpegcobalt-ss-side.jpegHello, I'm new here. In October of 2017 I bought a Red 2009 Cobalt SS turbo 4 door LNF F35 with 64,000 miles on it. I found it on the internet in Orlando Fl and bought unseen and had it shipped to Delaware. I love it. It's the fastest car I have owned, not that I have owned any fast cars, but all that matters is it makes me happy. It can break loose at 40mph in 2nd with 25psi boost. It had some mods when I bought, but all I can tell is the intake and exhaust mods. It would seem that 25 psi is much more than stock so I assume the calibration is different.

Welcome

The hot side charge pipe is aftermarket with added BOV. Take a better picture of the turbo, might be able to tell which turbo is on there.

I need to put a clutch in it, I emailed ZZP customerservice but they haven't replied...I can only wonder why, I'm but not happy about it. Money isn't my first concern, durability is. Got any recommendations? Is the Excedy clutch worth the money? Will it need the TOB spacer from ZZP? I like Fidanza flywheels...would that with a stage 4 South Bend clutch be a good combo?

I ran a Fidanza a 86 Dodge Lancer turbo 2.2 and loved it.


I have no idea what turbo this is.

Yep, me three
Do yourself a favor and get rid of those way too big worm style clamps and get T bolts on that charge piping. Factory intercooler?

I don't know what the stock intercooler looks like, the one on it seems big, and it blocks the lower drivers side radiator bolt. I found that out when I replaced the leaking stock radiator with the ZZP aluminum one.

I download the GM performance catalog and couldn't find it. What is the part number for GMPP clutch that fits an LNF F35, or who sells it? Being new and not knowing about these cars I am thankful for all the help.
