    Hi! I'm new to the cruze tuning scene. What stickers work well for the cruze? Also what is the best placement? I have heard these can get you 10 whp per sticker (best bang for the buck)

    You need some Nismo and Edelbrock stickers. Also, you must get the fake stick-on vents for the front quarter panels. 10 sec ET's with that combo!

    Seriously, I think those guys believe this to be true...

    Honestly, the Type-R stickers and badges will get you the most HP.

    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 ...

    An aftermarket BOV is not needed with this turbo. A tune will easily get you to 200hp to the crank with a few bolt-ons.

    I do not consider meth injection to be a reliable way to make power and never have.

    The clutch limit is not 200hp, but rather 200 lb-ft of torque. I don't know of too many people who have reached that.

    Lastly, please remember that this is not a high-revving HP-making motor. It is built for daily drivability and torque, and the difficulty in making high peak horsepower with this motor has proven that design. Instead of looking at how much power you're making, start looking at where you're making that power.
