    Either find someone GOOD with HPTuners or buy HPTuners and tune it yourself. I would highly suggest avoid Trifecta.



    I also highly suggest removing your Tapatalk sig.

    My brother says it looks easy since has has taken a few 2.2s apart before. He was the one suggesting me to do it and I'm going to get a tune first some guy is around my area charges me $200 for the trifecta tune.

    You have to know to either time the motor correctly or keep the current timing correct.

    Not hard at all. If you were to ever do it, you just need to make sure you replace the Cam Bolts (the 2 bolts that hold the cam gears to the cams) at they are TTY. Aside from that, timing the engine is the most difficult part, I'd say... and its really not that difficult.

    My brother would basicly be helping me out if I do because he has installed cams on other cars before and replaced one on a cobalt 2.2

    I've heard something about not being able to cam some of the newer models because of the cam position sensor or something. Anyone heard anything like this? I'm thinking maybe you can't install cams on the vvt's because of this?
