I decide to play nice and start thinking about numbers in my head..

Me: So like.. a Cosworth engine, a roll-cage, and some suspension?

Guy: No just a big roll cage, it went through the firewall into the engine bay.

Me: Ahh sounds cool *shut my hood, walk away*
I had to check the internet. I know that the cobalt SS turbos were pretty stout but not 300whp bone stock stout.
