New kid from Ottawa

Hey everyone, name is Seb, live in Ottawa, Ontario and I have had the truck for about 7 months now. Lovin it! Had a 2007 Cobalt SS before lowered to the max and now 2 years later I'm TOTALLY changed wanting the most lift I can haha

The truck is a 2008 FX4, bought in November '08 for like 24k (got the 4G$ incentive). So far I have only done a 2.5" crank, Pro Comp AAL, Intake and exhaust. Although I have had things in and out of the truck constantly like the tonneau cover, flip up deck, sub/amp, offroad lights but decided to sell all that for rims/tires.

Now on to the pics!

The old 2007 Cobalt SS

Nice bike, 08?
Graphics look nice and clean too. If your looking into a pipe, look into FMF's. The have the thing called the Mega Bomb. It replaces your header pipe, similar to an expansion chamber in a 2 stroke. A couple of guys who are racing for use run them, and they love them.

I dont have a DB any more, I run this now

'09 actually, but it's essentially the same bike. The exhaust right now isn't on a list for mods right now, I'd rather put rims/tires on the truck first. But if I were to go for a pipe it would be the Mega Bomb/Factory 4.1 combo. But the bike hauls *** as it is lol

^^Unfortunate.

I would not get the megabomb if i were you. they get all smashed up just like 2-stroke pipes do (personally i would not go with anything but stainless, titanium is even too soft when hot)

How does the Megabomb get smashed more than others? Because of the big hump?

Unfortunate how?

Have you ridden one? If you have have you ridden one that is stroked? Mine is, and I have way more fun than on a bike. Plus I can carry the GF on the back. No she cant ***** and complain that I never spend any time with her.
