Many of you have been following my E-85 thread. There is a lot of good technical information in there for building a killer fuel system. Here is a link :
The E-85 Quest - BRFPS vs. RSFS vs. Fuel Pump Re-wire
For a history of the car up until this point, I direct you here :
Here is another thread documenting my Forged Piston install. Thanks again to Josh (billabong9687) for his help.
How-to : Piston Install

This thread is not intended to brag about my mod list, or compare my car to others. It is not intended to gloat about how much I know or make myself feel better. I need a thread to complete my ideas and see where I have the car, and what direction I want to take the car. This thread will also follow updates to the car, and provide insight and technical discussion to other members.
Too many people like to remain secretive about what's been done to the car, or how to figure out some things that nobody has really explored yet. This is one reason why the Cobalt/Redline community has never progressed at the rate that other platforms do. If more people shared information, we might have 400whp supercharged cars running around, or have many more members taking the platform into the 12's, 11's, and even 10's. I am sharing my experiences and knowledge to hopefully help the many new members of the Redline community, and to also further my own knowledge.
Consider my previous threads merged into this one, please.
