2.2l Ecotec

I'm just curious to know if somebody sells perfrormance parts for a 2004 chevy classic 2.2l ecotec.I'm thinking about throttle body, intake and pullys etc. Would PORTing out the intake and exhaust manifold be worth it????? This is just my little 4 cyl work car that i would like to modify. My real car (the 69 Chevlle) will be on the back burner due to my wifes pregnancy.

You could turn it into a ricer and put a body kit and fart cannon on it with some black steel rims. lol. But really, i wouldn't waste time trying to make a little 4 cylinder fast. Stick with the chevelle.

How much money do you want to spend? How fast do you want to go?

Two questions that apply to all hot rod projects.

Consider this;

Engine Type: Inline 4-cylinder
Displacement: 2.16 Liters
Bore x Stroke: 89mm x 89 mm (destroked for high RPM operation) Valves/cylinder: 4
Balance Shafts: Removed for high RPM operation
Block: Aluminum (lost foam cast) with steel cylinder liners
Head: Aluminum (sand cast) with custom race porting
Crankshaft: 3.505 Billet Steel
Rods: Manley I-beam, 300M material
Pistons: JE aluminum with 22mm PPP Pins
Compression: 10.8:1
Camshafts: Comp Cams billet custom ground, with roller finger followers
Induction: Borg Warner S400 Turbocharger w/ air to water intercooler
Ignition: Capacitive discharge by MSD
Fuel Delivery: 3 injectors per cylinder with FAST XFI controller
Fuel: Methanol
Lubrication: Dry sump
Exhaust: 4 into 1, custom bent
Horsepower: 1450hp @ 9200rpm
Torque: 940 lb-ft @ 7700rpm

I think that would get the your little Cobalt noticed!!

HAHA we call them fart cans. I like the sound of FART CANNON hee hee.
It would make a cool dune bug or go cart...maybe a portable generator.
Yeah stick with the chevelle use the cavalier or cobalt whatever for parts running and groceries. After all the wife will need something to drive to walmart.You wouldnt park the chevelle down there now.... WOULD YOU!

To get back to your original question, start with GM Performance Parts. They have LOTS of stuff for the Ecotec, some of it even emissions certified for your 2004.

sorry ss396 I guess i was having fun at your expense. My Bad. I like the ecotech 2.2 engine. They do pretty well. Dont know what you could do to get more power from your 2.2. I guess you could tweek the flash program add some timing and fuel . probably not much room to move tranny shift points around.( I assume it is an automatic). Smaller diameter tires would effectivley change the final drive gear ratio which might give you a little better off the line response so i guess there is a few things you could try. Have you tuned it up lately? How bout some injector cleaner and a new fuel filter. Fresh oxygen sensor? A little here a little there pretty soon you know....

Slap a modern turbo system on it, some cams, and some pistons. Total cost of about 4-5 grand and can easily hit 450 hp (though lower power numbers will have faster spool). That'll burn the front tires right off.

So far I put a fresh set of brakes and hardware all around, plus a K&N air filter. Next i'll change the belt then check the spark plugs and wires. I was just curious to know whats out there performance wise. I plan on keeping it for a few more years. My next vehicle will hopefully be the Colorado with the 5.3L vortec. Now do you guys know what Is out there for this truck??

I don't remember a colorado being offered with a v8 unless the new ones have it. The largest engine was alway a 5 cylinder. As for the 2.2, how bout some cams? Get a header for it (<boy did that feel weird to say! only one header! haha) and put a better exhaust system, but please a quiet one. A larger throttle body would give it some power too.

The colorado is offered with a V8 this year. A bigger throttle body sounds great, I'm trying to find an interchangable part.
