      08 chevy Aveo turbo 4dr sedan.

      Hello all name is ed,own a hand me down 08 Chevy Aveo 4 dr sedan.
      Tons of mods and fab work done here. Pics I posted are only 2 and old so far I've had the car myself 4 about a yr.more up to date pics will follow.
      (ENGINE) Ecu R&D work done with a buddy I know ,ecu has a microsquirt piggyback unit wired into the harness with 2 usb slots added for tuning/diagnostics. Full engine rebuild/blueprint,honing,ported to 0.030 over. Cylinder head ported/polished w/3angle valve job,Custom comp cam set(Cams,roller lifters,springs). D16/18 Custom turbo header,2.5"D16/18 downpipe fabbed w/hi flow cat, Cx racing gt35 turbo w/.70AR. 2.25" intercooler system w/piping. Custom 2.25" straight pipe exhaust w/turbo style muffler.
      SUSPENSION- KYB shocks/struts,H&R springs, whiteline modified cobalt SS swaybars, 6pt custom subframe takedown cradle. TIRES 185/50R 15,Rims-Enkei lightweight 6 spoke.
      Exterior-mesh vented hood/fenders, functional bodykit(might fab a wide body kit w/fiberglass/Carbonfiber).

      Used to rally the aveo for a bit until blew the suspension out and cv axles lmao
      Turbo sits at a conservative 6.5-7psi dynoed at 202hp and 194.5ftlb with tuning and all the mods in the engine.
      In the future looking to convert to rwd and swap in either a 1.4L or a vortec 4.3L v6

      Update though-I went from a top style intercooler to a front mount about 2 months ago. Like I said pics are old.

      Welcome to the site. Very nice looking Aveo!

      Any suspension mods or braking to handle the extra power?

      First time to read such an amazing post. Thanks for being quite detailed! Gonna end with the typical .. looking forward to reading more about the car, as my car may want to learn some more before it goes up at some point

      Elangford65 would you please consider doing a proper garage entry on this car? It would really help out to say the least.

      I changed my garage entry It looks more formal now, best thing about working for a chevy dealership turning wrenches i get to use my lift after work. I get all access to gm alldata pro, and gm tech 2 wireless device linked to my work computer, and any tool in the parts department...which is alot. So if anyone is in the area and needs work done on their ride PM me .
