Default GM High-Tech Performance Gains 30 FWHP with 2009 Cobalt SS Tune


Their tuner used HPTuners. I'm sure the Cobalt guys see this as ordinary but this is downright impressive with just a tune on a stock car.

The final tally with more boost and timing is an impressive 278 whp (5,600 rpm) and 300 wtq (3,000 rpm), far greater than our baseline of 248 whp and 251 wtq. That works out to a gain of 30 whp and 49 wtq. The peak gains are one thing, but also check out some areas under the curve, which are 50-60 whp better than stock.

30 WHP typical? I dunno that's kind of high to be considered typical IMO. Wasn't that in last months issue?

Issue? Print? Magazine? What's that?

Other turbo and direct injected engines respond ridiculously well to tuning so I'm not too surprised about the gains. Just awesome considering this thing is priced so cheaply and responds so well to mods.

Tunes are the single most bang for buck mod out there for cobalts. Trifecta has been busting out tuned cobalts one after the other with around 310 whp and 340 wtq with only a tune. I probably should get off my ass and get one.

30 hp is good but is it really out of the ordinary on a turbo car?
