Chevrolet is working with GM'* Service Parts Operations to develop a portfolio of accessories targeted at the front-drive performance market, including custom accessories and a supercharger kit for 2.4-liter Quad 4 engines that boosts output by 40 horsepower over stock.
I hear that older Cavaliers (not sure about current Ecotec'*) tend to have their transmissions **** themselves by 200hp... comfirm/deny, anyone?

Shoot, just take the money it took to make 650 out of a 4 banger, put it into a 6 or even 8, and you'll get alot more than 650, my personal gaurantee!!
