    Got some winter wheels and tires put on the car, a set of 225/60/r16 Bridgestone Blizzak WS08's on a set of 16x6.5 steel wheels (painted dark grey just because I felt like it). Also, I think I might need to change the name of the car to "3 of 4" because this is the third or fourth time something has ony had 3 of 4 work or be avalable, and the second time for a set of wheels.

    EDIT: The 4th tire had some damage to the bead from improper storage

    friday afternoon I got started on the new custom exhaust for the car, got the 3" section mostly done. Then I spent the weekend wiring in an additional led backup light as well as upgrading the speakers and amp in the car. Changed out the amp with the 4ch rockford fosgate that I had in my ECO, got it wired and mounted it in the same location as the factory bose unit. Replaced the rear 6x9s with a set of Pyramid 3-ways that have a lot of thump for the price, then replaced the front door speakers with 6.5" pyle plg64s that were also out of my ECO. Much better sounding and actually has some thump to it now.

    Additionally I spent $60 on alldatadiy.com so I could figure out where to connect a flex fuel sensor, pin 38 on x1. Had to find a car with the same ecm that actually had a flex sensor and the majority of the pinout is the same (rechecking that now).

    @Blasirl NVH stands for Noise, Vibration, and Harshness and is a term mainly used by the oems.

    I have access for 1yr to the 2014 verano 2.0t and 2.4na plus the 2014 regal 2.0t. It would be $15-20 for me to add another car if I wanted.

    The exhaust "upgrade" has taken a few unexpected turns, stay tuned for the finished product and description of whatever configuration i end up with!

    (still definitely has 3" pipe and a cutout though...)

    Also, anyone know if lordstown 2019 is still on, even with the plant shutdown?

    Finished most recent config for exhaust, 3" to the cutout, then 2" to a stock cruze muffler and tailpipe. No perceivable performance change from the stock verano exhaust with the cutout closed. Have yet to do any testing other than sound with the cutout open.



    Apologies about the noise in the background, I was opening doors to make sure I didn't suffocate in the garage.
