off with something already very good. Improve upon it and the result is something
spectacular. In this case, begin with the Chevrolet Cavalier Ecotec 2.2-liter
engine. Add a supercharger and the result is a fire-spitting, 262-horsepower
The horsepower boost was achieved by incorporating
a Roots-type supercharger with liquid-air charge cooling. Cavalier Z-24 also
features forged aluminum pistons with a 6.5cc dish to obtain its 9.0:1 compression,
as well as titanium connecting rods.
To ensure a smooth, sporty, ride, the supercharged
Cavalier Z-24 displayed at the 2002 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA)
show features a MacPherson-type independent front suspension, while four-wheel
disc brakes with ABS ensure safe stops.
So, where would you take such a radical Cavalier?
Cruising, of course. Invite four of your best friends and step inside. You're
sure to get a lot of looks, thanks to the Nippon tri-stage Metallic Red exterior
paint and a car that rides 1¾ inches lower than a production model.
Of course, it doesn't hurt to have the TOYO Proxes
T1-S P235/35ZR-19 tires mounted on Axis-Hagen 19-inch, five-spoke aluminum wheels.
The already-large wheels and tires fill the wheel housing completely.
Beauty? Brawn? Both can co-exist harmoniously in
the Chevrolet Cavalier Z-24.
