Feature: Nathan Benton’s 2009 Chevy Cobalt SS

Pics and words: Nathan Benton

I posted a pic of this car for Cool wheels that work on everything v.4: BBS LM

and the owner contacted me with some more info. So, without further ado, Nathan Benton’s 2009 Chevy Cobalt SS.

Nathan has owned his Cobalt for two years, and started modding it as soon as he got it home.

Currently it’s equipped with a Hahn Intercooler, Cold Air Intake with Injen charge pipes with the stock K04 on it but  Nathan was able to get 324hp 421tq with AEM water/meth and a 30psi spike tune. He is still utilizing the stock clutch, along with the stock internals which have been known to withstand up to 500hp!

Originally Nathan was running 18×9.5 Varrstoens es2.2.1 but wanted to get away from the extreme stance look and get something more functional so after performing a hub swap and ditching the 5×110 with 5×114.3 hubs, he was able to put on the 17×8-front 17×9-rear BBS LMs.

Additionally, Nathan added some other goodies like a Powell Raceshop Tow hook and Harness bar as well as a very stiff rear sway bar. He has autox’d the car a few times and have actually placed in his class recently.

Nathan says the Cobalt has been awesome, and he plans on getting ZZP’s EFR 6758 kit which is a direct bolt on, and he’d like to rebuild the LMs to 18s. Check out his flickr page for more pics:

Nathan gets much respect from me, and if anyone else out there has a cool car they would like to see on the site, send me some pics and info to safety.stance@yahoo.com
