I need some help?

What car is better for showing off and racing, (that would be good to mod.)

The Audi TT Quattro (225hp turbo)

Chevy Cobalt SS (217hp?? Supercharged)

which would one would sound louder and more powerful after intake, exhaust and ect.

also can you put header on a turboed car or a supercharged car?


thanks (im 16 almost 17yr so keep that in mind i dont have alot of money)

I think you should get a regular car and go for something more fancy when your nice and used to driving and your sure you want to spend all that money
on a brand new car to go racing in.

but out of those cars, since you said you wanted to mod them up and race.

Id say the quattro just because of all wheel drive ( when you have alot of power, four wheel drive is way better than front )

I'd suggest something with less power for a first car, but from the two, I'd choose an Audi...what year though? Because there's a big difference in price between the two. The Cobalt's not bad either, and probably better for a first car, and probably better for performance mods

I'd suggest something closer to an Integra or something for a first car...

The SS is 200 horsepower 205 torque. Neither of them are showoff cars, because one is a sports roadster and the other is a boy racer car. Who are you trying to impress BTW? Girls? Friends?

The lack of clear communication does not come from Wally.

If you dont have a lot of money why are you considering such expensive first cars?

Because you can still get Hot Wheels at Wal-Mart for 97 cents.

You sound like a ricer. You just want a car to impress people, half of whom dont really care. I raced a ricer in a civic and burned him with a stock 3-speed automatic neon. He had wheels, body kit, spoiler, neons, etc.etc, and his car was slow. Its your money, and I suggest you really think about what you want. If you want to turn heads get a 500 benz and keep is nice nad clean, and dont tint the windows so everyone can see you. Its called class.
