      This looks like a fun swap. I'd like to do something to mine to make it quicker but being my only working vehicle right now, I'll have to wait.

      I can't wait to have it on the road man, if your up for it just make sure you order all the parts before you start it makes the process go smother.

      The shifter is almost a straight bolt on, the rear holes don't line up since the shifter is a shorter. This astro tool make it a easy job to modify it to fit. Please mind the mess the car has been sitting for about a year in my back yard...lol

      Nicely done.

      The shifter swap is due to different cables being used?

      Yes the shifters are very different, the aveo uses some wired shifter type. I'll take a picture of it so u can see the huge difference between them.

      This is what I was talking about the shifter being different, the Aveo has a mechanical linkage and the cobalt has two rods

      If your doing this swap to your aveo or in fact to any car, you need to be very knowledgeable or have a buddy that know what they are doing. There is a lot of wires that need to be cut and solder together, the computer systems for both of these cars are completely different from one anther.

      For a fuel system I install a walbro 250 with -6an fitting all the way to the fuel pump. Reason being because the lsj exhaust manifold and the oem Aveo fuel line are about 3 inches away from each other. I really didn't feel safe running a line from the stock location to the fuel rail. I might run an external regulator I just have to see if I can tune around the extra fuel pump pressure.
