      06 aveo5 LSJ supercharged engine swap

      Hi all

      I am swapping my little 1.6 to an lsj supercharged I already have most parts/components to start the build.

      Motor and trans
      Shifter
      Axles
      Cobalt hubs
      Coil overs
      Struts
      5 lug rims
      Lower ball joints
      Brembo brakes and rotors
      Inner and outer tie rods
      And a few more things..

      I'll be skipping over the lsj maintenance
      (clutch,flywheel,timing chain, smaller supercharger pulley etc) since I already made all the replacements before try to fitted in the aveo.

      But before I begin I have to give credit where credit is due to thehotrodguy for giving me a lot of information on how he swap his aveo.

      Continuing the build the aveo lower control needs to be modified to accepted the cobalt ball joint, I am using the cobalt struts, lowering springs (not shown) and hub. The aveo top strut mount needs to be used so the cobalt strut can bolt on to the frame.

      Note if using the brembro calipers make sure the disc shield and plate are installed, the calipers will contact the rotor if they are not installed. Trust me I won't be doing that mistake twice, also note a minimum of a 17" rim will be needed and depending on the rim you might need a spacer like mine do.

      On the front end depending on the radiator you choose to go with, it will diced how much cutting you have to do. I choose to go with the cobalt's aluminum radiator which requires a lot of trimming of the front end.
