Video A 600HP Chevy Cobalt SS is a Type R’s Worst Nightmare

Video Chevy ✅ ZZperformance who has mastered the Ecotec engine platform was kind enough to throw me the keys to “SNOBALT” – a 600WHP front wheel drive monster that would even make a Dodge Neon SRT-4 blush. After driving a Chevy Cobalt SS with ZZperformance bolt ons as well as the Saturn Ion Redline – I figured we could take this platform to the limit and see just how great the ecotec is when you have a blank check. So let’s go for a drive and see just how gnarly this beast is. ✅ A 600HP Chevy Cobalt SS is a Type R’s Worst Nightmare

this is not for the week

0:46
thank you
0:48
know you guys seem to really like the
0:51
Chevy Cobalt SS so I decided to step
0:53
things up and get a crazy Chevy Cobalt
0:57
SS so this here is ZZ performances
0:59
snowbolt the first kobold SSI drove made
1:03
300 wheel horsepower this one makes
1:06
double that this makes about 600 wheel
1:09
horsepower in a Chevy Cobalt so let’s
1:12
see what that’s like because I don’t
1:14
really know what to expect
1:17
oh it’s like that big boy fuel pump
1:20
pretty much everything you can do to a
1:23
kobold SS is done to snowballed like
1:27
it’s all there so before we get started
1:29
quick rundown of the Chevy Cobalt SS
1:31
it’s a front-wheel drive American tuner
1:34
car that was kind of a response to the
1:36
Dodge Neon SRT4 and also this was very
1:39
much a crazy era for Chevy they got
1:42
really experimental and threw darts at a
1:45
board and just kind of saw what worked
1:46
we’re talking the Trailblazer SS talking
1:49
about the Cobalt instance we’re talking
1:50
about the Saturn ION Red Line talking
1:53
about the HHR SS the the Impala SS that
1:57
was front-wheel drive the V8 just just a
1:59
ton of weird cars in this era but the
2:02
Cobalt SS had the supercharged version
2:04
which was also the Saturn Ion Redline
2:06
and then they had the turbocharged
2:08
version the reason they went to Turbo is
2:11
because GM’s contract with Eaton
2:14
superchargers expired so instead of it
2:18
being like Oh turbo is the obvious
2:20
option to go next it was because they
2:23
ran out of Supercharger so they had to
2:25
find a different solution all in all the
2:27
last Chevy Cobalt SSI drove actually
2:30
made around 300 something horsepower
2:32
with zzp bolt-ons and it was a ton of
2:35
fun and I drove it in the rain and
2:38
that was a little sketchy but believe it
2:41
or not the Chevy Cobalt SS if you did
2:43
not know at the time was the fastest
2:46
front-wheel drive car in production it
2:48
did an eight minute something
2:50
Nurburgring time which is pretty
2:52
spectacular for back then I think the
2:55
SRT-4 had more of like a cool factor and
2:58
that’s why a lot of people overlooked
3:00
the kobold SS because the Cobalt was
3:03
just an economy car just like the neon
3:05
but for some reason that SRT4 got a
3:08
little bit different of a legacy and I
3:10
think that’s really sad because the
3:11
kobold SS as a tuner platform
3:14
pretty freaking good it’s pretty
3:16
freaking good example a it has a
3:19
Sidewinder setup on it what that means
3:22
is it takes the rear mount turbo set up
3:24
from the factory it makes it more of a
3:26
front turbo setup and it just looks so
3:28
much better in the engine bay you can
3:30
see everything how it works the big
3:32
single turbo just looks so menacing
3:34
delivery on this car really suits
3:37
snowball I really like the zzp wrap on
3:39
this by the way is it Livery or Livery I
3:42
can never get it right so put it in the
3:44
comment section below one of my favorite
3:45
things about this aesthetically is the
3:48
arrow the aerodynamics on this car are
3:51
completely functional the diffuser on
3:53
the back he actually has an ing’s front
3:56
bumper which is something I didn’t even
3:58
know was a thing
4:03
he’s got demon eye tail lights which
4:06
adds a very aggressive look to the rear
4:08
end of this car functional APR wig on
4:11
the back big diffuse
4:13
this also runs
4:15
runs the suspension as well and the car
4:17
sits literally perfect it has a really
4:20
low aggressive stance while also being
4:22
completely functional I haven’t bottomed
4:25
out a single time driving this today as
4:27
long as
4:28
just don’t be stupid we also have a
4:31
personal wheel which honestly the
4:33
factory kobold SS wheel I think is a
4:36
really good steering wheel because you
4:37
know it’s the same one they use in the
4:38
C6 Corvette this car this car is used
4:40
for time attack so it makes sense to
4:42
have this kind of steering wheel also we
4:44
have a suede Dash sway door cards kind
4:46
of adds a little bit more luxury or race
4:49
car rally race car if you know what I
4:52
mean this also
4:53
speed Maybe manual transmission in the
4:55
Cobalt SS and the ratios are just a
4:57
little different feels a little bit
4:58
different it’s nice also got Recaro
5:00
seats that are nice and snug and the
5:02
recaros have sliders so shorter people
5:05
like me can actually drive the car
5:06
because a lot of the times when I do car
5:08
reviews and fix bucket seats I need to
5:10
like make something work like put a pad
5:12
behind me or a hoodie behind me or
5:14
something my personal favorite was a
5:16
pillow but the sound this thing makes is
5:18
super interesting
5:21
does that not scream 2000’s tuner car
5:28
at the same time the Ecotec engine is so
5:32
underrated as a four-cylinder platform
5:34
not to mention it has a much deeper tone
5:38
than most four-cylinders speaking of
5:40
like Hondas you know they can have that
5:41
really raspy note behind them if they’re
5:43
not turbocharged especially this thing
5:45
has a nice deep throaty tone
5:50
spinning The Supercharged Cobalt SS and
5:54
Saturn Ion Redline they’re much more
5:56
linear right they have this very
5:58
predictable Power Band The turbocharged
6:01
ones are just a different animal
6:03
altogether zzp has gotten this motor up
6:07
to 900 wheel horsepower before
6:09
no
6:13
I just love the sound off of the trees
6:19
God bless you Cobalt
6:21
[Music]
6:28
there goes my face yeah rolling into
6:31
third it ramps in super super hard
6:37
[Music]
6:39
torque steer
6:42
I started moving we have what I like to
6:46
call tasteful verbals not annoying
6:49
burbles whoa
7:02
foreign
7:06
coming out of the corner and it’s just
7:09
like hey I like rumble strips I want to
7:11
hear what they sound like the thing
7:12
the third gear is super super tall
7:15
so it’s really hard to kind of reel it
7:18
all the way out and then once you do the
7:19
Torx here kicks in you’re like oh my God
7:27
foreign
7:31
this is crazy like second gear what I’m
7:36
doing is I’m kind of modulating my
7:39
throttle letting it hook up for a second
7:41
and then
7:43
but then by the time I get there I’m
7:46
spitting so then I’m like all right now
7:47
I’m going to go into third gear
7:57
[Music]
7:59
a good job and it’s still like Dad I
8:02
don’t like this also sound wise we have
8:05
a really awesome side exit exhaust that
8:08
really makes this thing sound super
8:10
gnarly this
8:12
it a bunch of zzp goodies the head is
8:15
done the valve Train’s done the Pistons
8:16
are done the rods are done hole nine you
8:19
name it
8:21
breaks on the Cobalt SS the Brembo
8:23
brakes that came with the Cobalt SS have
8:26
absolutely no right being as good as
8:28
they are they really really show their
8:31
worth with this much horsepower and
8:33
they’re still able to handle this which
8:35
phenomenal first gear is useless but in
8:38
a fun way second gear roast the tires
8:41
but you’re still moving forward which is
8:44
really bizarre typically with fast front
8:45
wheel drive cars uh spending is not
8:48
winning but this just
8:49
keeps going somehow
8:56
um
8:59
this is not for the week
9:05
oh
9:08
geared man it starts walking and you’re
9:12
like I don’t know where I’m going but I
9:14
guess I’m going along for the ride I
9:16
don’t really have a choice right now
9:18
this thing is an
9:20
isn’t I mean it makes all the right
9:22
noises hi sir would you like to do a
9:24
scavenger hunt of every divot and
9:26
crevice in this road the kobold SS is
9:29
for you and what’s really cool is zzp
9:32
has taken this platform and really
9:34
figured it out I think that’s the big
9:35
problem with these cars is a lot of
9:37
people just kind of throw Parts at them
9:39
and don’t really know the secret sauce
9:41
is these knows the secret sauce with the
9:44
Ecotec engine it’s it’s a cobles SS
9:46
that’s low bait with its cams it’s super
9:49
weird to be around when you hear this
9:51
thing low pain you’re like there is no
9:52
way it’s coming from that Cobalt also
9:55
I’ve got like five thumbs up today so
9:57
that’s always a good feeling all right
10:00
zzb kobold SS also known as snowbolt 600
10:04
wheel horsepower
10:06
and a Cobalt what did I think of it well
10:09
as a Time attack car this thing is an
10:12
absolute monster I had a really good
10:14
time driving this
10:16
sounds amazing
10:18
very charismatic car in that note I
10:20
upload on Tuesdays Thursdays and Sundays
10:24
and I will see you guys next time take
10:26
it easy have a wonderful day good
