If you happen to be the proud owner of a Chevy Sonic and are also looking to augment your zippy subcompact with a palpable performance upgrade, then GM’s Turbo Stage Kit with High Flow Exhaust should be on your short list.
Designed and engineered by GM/Chevrolet Performance, the bundle of the low-restriction exhaust and appropriate engine calibration software adds 10 horsepower and 15 pound-feet over the standard setup, for a total of up to 148 horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque. And that’s not to mention the improved audible qualities furnished by the exhaust.

The exhaust hardware itself costs $600, plus any dealer installation charges. The kit keeps the vehicle’s original warranty intact.
