Stage 5 For my LSJ Cobalt SS

Hello Everyone<

I am a new member and wanted to share my excitement with everyone. I picked up my car from the shop today and holy crap, I can't beleive the power increase. I am officially at 253 Hp and I love it! Just to tell everyone the stage 5 kit for the supercharger came from Intense Racing. I also got the LSJ dual pass intercooler end plate and the intercooler reservior upgrade from them as well. They even included a high quality Intense emblem in chrome. I called them several times and spoke with Chris and these guys are a great help and very knowlegable. Also included was a base map sent via email. Visit the website to see what is included in the stage 5 kit. I also had installed a pacesetter (ceramic) header that was supplied by the installer at a great price.

The last part was the most important which was the dyno and an HP tune done by very skilled techs

I will now tell you the shop and will say that I deal with many contractors in my line of business and these guys are total professionals at Evolution Auto Performance. I will be filming with my go pro this weekend and will post the videos early next week.

Still waiting for my Interceptor Guage.....

Welcome to RS.. those ecotec engines are beasts. I have driven a Saturn Sky with a Stg2 kit. They are insane.

Does GM still provide support in the form of boosting on the new ECOTEC engines? I really like the new Cruze (in hatchback form) and would be nice to see one in a 2.0T guise.

What is stock HP on the Supercharged Version of those cars? Stage 5 netted you how much over stock and what was the overall cost all said and done for this upgrade?

Berz out.

Does it start at Stage 5 and then go UP to Stage 1 where the real power is or does it start at Stage 1 and go UP to Stage 5 and that is where all the power is. Cuz I think those cars put down around 230whp stock if you just change the muffler so you gained 20hp over stock at Stage 5??

Here is what I dug up.....

This package has been DYNO PROVEN to produce at least 19 psi boost and up to 275 WHP and 275 WTQ.

Please check out our installation pricing regarding our stage kits and other LSJ items.

* LSJ-INT-PSC - INTENSE™ Ported M62 Gen V Supercharger Housing
* LSJ-INT-SCO - INTENSE™ Supercharger Oil (8oz)
* GVC-GMT - GM Gasket Maker
* LSJ-IMH-090 - INTENSE™ LSJ Modular Pulley System
* LSJ-IMP-250 - INTENSE™ 2.50" pulley
* LSJ-STP-630 - Oversized Supercharger Tensioner Pulley
* LSJ-ASP-3922 - Autolite® Copper Core Spark Plugs (recommended gap = .035")
* LSJ-FIS-600-4 - Siemens 60 pound/hour Fuel Injectors
* LSJ-CIH-102155 - Casper's LSJ Injector Wiring Harness

Stage 5 kit costs $799 US without any add ons and this badge.... is a $10 add on.


So let me get this straight. You got the Stage 5 kit for $799US, Plus you upgraded your intercooler housing? As well as installing a less restrictive Header and you only netted 253whp? Just wanna make sure I'm doing my math correctly here. I know that common WHP for this car is around 215 stock with some going up to 230whp with header and exhaust helping out.

Berz out.

Evolution is a Paid sponsor so they are free to promote themselves or have customers post support of their shop.

As for promoting the Stage 5 kit..... well..... that kind of speaks for itself

So you pay $799 US for a stage 5 kit, and then they give you a badge that says STAGE 4?!

WTF

LOL not that was just the example of the badge on the site haha. It's usually $19.99 but if you buy the Stage 5 kit it's only $9.99!!!!

Not sure how much the stage 5 would be but wouldn't it make more sense to swap in an LNF? (and then sell your LSJ to me :P)
