BENEFITS OF STAGE 1 TUNE
Stock – 240whp/245wtq (Approx 7% drivetrain loss)
Stage 1 – 290whp/340wtq (Approx 315hp/370tq at the crank)*
*conservative estimates. Most real world Stage 1 tunes rate much higher depending on altitude, available octane, vehicle modifications, and other factors.
Stock power output of the 2008-2010 Cobalt SS is about 260 horsepower and 260 pounds of torque. This translates typically to about 240 wheel horsepower and about 245 pounds of torque at the wheels, meaning that the factory tune is likely underrated a little bit.
Our Stage 1 tunes produce 290 to 310 wheel horsepower and 340 to 370 wheel torque, depending on modifications. This is a peak increase of 50 to 70 wheel horsepower, and 90 to 120 wheel torque over stock.
