The brembo calipers were purchased from the Chevy dealer pads are local auto parts store and rotors are summit.

I've been searching for an intake but can't find one for the 2.4L.

Thanks for the re-welcomes

I'm pretty sure that caliper has two fittings, top and bottom.

So that brembo caliper kit is from a dealer? I know I've seen it for cobalts I just cant find who sells it.

I got my intake off ebay. There are plenty there, and some legit ones.
I cheaped out and got a $75 intake, It's more galvanized aluminum and doesn't look great. It did need a little bit of modification to get it to work but it wasn't too bad. After the MAF it necked down to 2.5" and I think that is to clear the hood. But I replaced part of it and made it all 3" it does rub a little but it works and sounds great!
Especially because all I did was a res delete on the exhaust and it's still pretty darn quiet. It's nice when I get on it

I too have the 2.4 as well. www.ZZPerformance.com is a great site for performance parts for our motor.

If you get an intake though it will through a Lean Code so you will either need to make sure the tubing has a 2.5" inside diameter around the MAF sensor. or you'll have to get a tune.

I got the WAMS tune, solved all my problems and made the engine a ton better!

The Brembo calipers are off of the 2008-10 cobalt ss/tc and can be bought at any GM dealership for roughly $350 ea. and come completely bare. You will need to buy the pads and pin kits separately. They do have 2 fittings on one side (inboard & outboard) and a crossover pipe on the opposite side. The pic was merely for mock up purposes to see how everything bolted up. I learned from that test fit that I had a long way to go before installing. Anyone that says the bolt right up is pulling your chain. lol.

Here are a few pics of the hood and grilles. I didn't cut anything out of the hood it is still non-functional, just molded everything so that it doesn't look quite so fake.

Oh so you're looking at at least $700 plus everything else you'll need to get it working. Sounds like quite the expense and hassle. I'd love to do it, but I don't think I will be. Most of my money is going to go into my engine, wheels, and suspension. Although a brake upgrade may be necessary in the future... ha

@ CruisinG6: If I added everything up for this project it would be around $1100-1200 (all retail of course). Thankfully because of my current position and career I've only paid a fraction of it.

@ ryangski: That's funny as hell, small world. I'm at Toepfer and Kelly on Veronica, for now anyways. And I work at Merollis Chevrolet on Gratiot and Toepfer. Also, feels pretty good to know my car is so memorable lol.

Hey I'm off 94 too! Although about 350 miles away, haha. It seems like each project I have or want to do to my car is adding up to be a little over a grand. The wheels I want. Suspension setup. Engine work. I think if I had 6 grand to piss away I can get it all done.
But the way it's looking it'll have to happen over time,
