Porformence Problems

I have a 05 cobalt ss with 107000 miles and i just bought the car i went to Autozone to get is scanned cause the engine light was on and the codes that they read were
P0603- control module long term memory rest
P0017- crank shaft position senor
And im not sure if these code have anything to do with the car not allowing me to pass 80 mph because when im on the freeway and about to hit 80 the car starts to lose all of its power and i can press the gas pedal all the way down and it wont do anything and then it starts to say engine reduced power. Also im not sure if the guy tuned it or not cause i am pushing more than 12 psi like around 15 or 17psi please help dont be harsh im just a noob. Thank you

Can't change the boost pressure with a tune on supercharged Cobalts. Only way to increase boost pressure is to change to smaller pulley on supercharger or introduce exhaust restriction. Post a picture up of your supercharger pulley and we should be able to tell if it is stock or not. If you have stock pulley and are pushing that much boost it isn't good and you may have a clogged cat.

People will have to chim in on the codes. P0017 fault can be enough to cause reduced performance on it's own though I don't know what the common associated failures are.

Not sure what you are trying to say about the gas gauge but if your crank trigger isn't working correctly your ECU could go into reduced engine power just because of that. Could just be a bad ground, bad sensor, ECU or other things which people more knowledgeable with that code may be able to better help you with.

wait, do you mean the gas gauge works backwards? as in when you fill the tank the gauge shows empty and when the tank is empty it reads full? that would be what happens when you put a 2006 or 2007 ecm in a 2005 car.

in 2006 gm changed the way the fuel sending unit works, it works in reverse of the 2005 car. when you swap the pcm between a between a 2005 and a 2006+ car the fuel gauge works in reverse. you dont really need to look further into if its been swapped, its obvious that it has if the fuel gauge works backwards.

check your blower pulley, see if its a press on pulley or if it has bolts in the front of it, and maybe a size. also check the injectors, if they are green and silver they are stock, if they are black and silver the are likely gm stage 2 42lb, and if they are all black they are 60lb or 80lb. knowing these things will give us an idea of whats been done. its likely not related to the problem but still can be helpful.
