I can pick up an eco tec engine with 20.000 miles on it for 650, its from a 2006 cobalt. Would this work? what will I need besides the engine, wiring? Im just wondering because I think there is more that can be done with an eco tec to increase horse power easily plus its a very strong engine. I know from experience.

The 2.2 L Ecotec is now rated at 148 hp (110 kW) with the 2.4 L Ecotec rated at 173 hp (129 kW). ... straight from wiki, maybe I should get a 2.4 L.. i dunno.

+100 you are in for more headaches than it's worth. the "d-tech" or Opel ecotec is actually a more powerful motor it just gets a bad rap here in the States.

take the 2.0 aluminum ecotec with turbo/SC as in the the cobalt or whatever, it only puts out 173.

the factory turbo version of these motor hits around 200hp and there are four different version that all get different HP numbers.

Kinky and I have been at the forfront of performance here in the states when it comes to these chassis and motors, you just have to visit our sites to see what is available.

there is also a member here pushing over 230hp with 100% stock motor with a turbo kit.

there are aftermarket cast turbo manifolds and OE cast manifolds as well as the stainless header flanges i sell for custom turbo headers.

what i would do you you place is set a budget and set a desired HP range and Kinky or I could help you out.

My site, www.daftart.com, is focused on engine and some transmission and Kinky, Kinkymotorsports.com, pretty much covers everything else including a really nice aftermarket cast T3 manifold.


also like Kinky said, if you are wanting a to do a swap I have basically a 2.0 motor stroked to 2.2 with just about everything you can do to a bottom end and I'm practiaclly giving it away.

What's the newest model year for the 200hp out put ones? C20LET right? or Z20LET...I can't remember.

That would be a pretty big N/A build. Garrett would know about that more than I would.

Wait whp or crank? Factory our cars makes ~100whp and some more torque. With basic bolt ons you're at ~130whp (will find out before the months end for sure). So if you're talking crank hp then that wouldn't be to hard.

Have to agree with Garrett here...... It would not be worth the trouble unless you really want that motor for some reason.

BTW the stock LSJ (2.0 DOHC) with supercharger on the cobalts puts out 205 hp 200 ft lbs.

Turbo kit on stock motor is plenty of fun, just watch out for the gearbox if you have manual lol.
