I meant the infotainment but thank you.
If anything I say offends you... you might need a snickers.
I have made another post in the 1.4L section, but just saw this off to the side and maybe I'll get more attention/answers here as well...Forgive me for attention whoring but I'm kinda freaking out here....
I had to make a video and let you guys listen and tell me if this is what a Cruze turbo should sound like AFTER the resonator bypass and/or if it's a healthy sound. I apologize for a night shot but it's the earliest I could get to my car. To me it literally sounds like there is air leaking somewhere...I checked as much piping as I could see that could be affected by the mod (especially what I disconnected) and without being burned of course - nothing seems to be letting air out. Regardless, please take a look/listen:

Another thing that I've noticed is the wetness on the plastic cover of the engine. **NOTE: It was dry the whole evening. Here is the video which you can clearly see the oily looking substance (which I slightly touched with the tip of my finger - the car was still hot).

And lastly, since I'm spamming questions already, is it normal for my engine temperature to be almost half way on the dash meter when it's like 3C degrees outside?
Thanks a lot

OK. I'm not familiar with turbo motors, especially the LUJ 1.4. Looking to get a tune, as i would like moar power. I think 200 hp to the crank would keep me happy (for a year?).
What are the weakest links to keep it reliable/ prep for the next stage (after a tune)? I've been reading the forums & it seems there are lots of opinions, but no consensus. (ex. intake, intake manifold, then methanol injection in order, others say it's the intake, then intercooler. Some say not to touch the intake manifold).
I understand a BPV going past 20 psi and a clutch at the 200 hp mark. Looks like everyone's got it working, but I would like to keep my motor + tranny for at least 170,000 miles ...
