Do you even have your racing license? I still think you should take your car to a drag strip and we can compare times.

By the way, I'll just leave this here. Yes, that's me.

Without a doubt. :lol: At the wheels I've got a LOT more power. Even if his is an automatic I've got the edge especially with my new tires. :popcorn:

The GTI is stage 1 DSG, 0-60 is around 5.8-5.9. Cobalt SS stock 0-60 is similar to the GTI. You might be right though, the tiger stripes add 100 hp!

@Waco, if you're so sure, why won't you take your SS to the strip and post a time? Do you have the supercharged, n/a, or turbocharged cobalt?

Here's an approximate dyno chart for my car. Yes, it is from the same company as my tune.

That's a nice remap! They did a good job on the torque band. Anything else done other than the tune? :)

Waco, looks like this Golf has got you beat. :lol:

Not to be mean...but the tiger stripes you are complaining about are on MY car. They do add 100 hp, my car would be way to slow else wise. haha :lol:

Except that my Cobalt is both supercharged and tuned. :lol: I've got over 240 HP at the wheels and a powerband so flat from 2K up you might confuse it with Natalie Portman. :biggrin:

Also - weren't we supposed to be talking about your car? I thought the GTI wasn't yours. :P
