    Got an HHR SS

    Well I picked up my HHR SS from Texas this weekend and drove it back home to Virginia. I love this thing, it's an 08' 5 speed w/ Stage 1 kit, 3" exhaust.

    Congrats man! Love the colour. Have fun with her. Did you sell your Xtreme?

    Oh, is that the factory exhaust or dealer accessory?

    Thanks, yea I sold the Xtreme last month. It is an aftermarket exhaust, I purchased the vehicle from the guy that owns ADM performance and he added the stage 1 kit and the exhaust.

    Nice car, congrats on the purchase. I think the HHR is cool, actually owned one for a few months(non SS), but the X and I split up and she took it. So give us some low down on how it performs. Acceleration, handling, passing power.

    Awesome little wagon! The HHR looks soooooo much better than the PT Cruiser (and yes, I know the same guy designed them both). The front on the standard one isn't great, however. The SS grille looks better at least and they put the right engine in it. Nice ride!

    Thanks, this thing is a bad little unit! With the stage 1 kit it get up to 30lbs. of boost and man does it pull when it boosts up. It was dynoed at 300hp and 350 ft. lbs
    It will burn tires from a 30mph roll from 2nd through 4th gears. Also on the trip back from Texas I found that it will bury the needle at 140 and still have plenty more.

    Dang!! You'll have to take her to the track and see what she runs. So are you talking about the kit that is available from GM with the warranty?

    Yes it has the GM stage 1 kit along with a tune from ADM performance. The stage 2 tune from ADM is 350hp but I would need a new clutch and I would get in to much trouble...

    My favorite thing about the HHR besides the old school look has to be the pull when the turbo kicks in. It plants you back in the seat and you have to hold on with both hands.

    I was getting about 400-450 miles per tank. So it averaged out to about 27 mpg and that was steady 80-90mph cruise control w/ the occasional 120mph bursts.

    I think the fun/mpg ratio is as good as you can get today.
