Hi Daniel. Thanks for writing in today to YourMechanic.com. In years past, swapping out a replacement engine was much easier due to the lack of computer monitored and controlled systems. Now-a-days, replacing an engine is not as flexible. We typically stick to offering repair and maintenance advice for OEM applications, so we can’t recommend using any other engine than one designed for your Cobalt.
