    @Blasirl Duals have been gone for a few weeks now, just how the system evolved and now this one is mostly custom so it made it easier to just have the single. The exhaust is 3" from the turbo to the cutout though...

    For anyone wondering, with the cutout open the thing is obnoxiously loud under hard acceleration and you can even see ripples in the windshield as it vibrates. But then with the cutout closed its probably quieter than some stock cruzes!

    (what do you mean by something happened to the vid? UPDATE never mind, just saw it was private)

    Recently picked up a NOS F40 trans, plan to put a quaife LSD in it, short shift linkage, and change out the stock flywheel for a single mass steel unit and upgraded clutch while i'm at it.

    Brief update:

    Cruzen 2.0 now has just over 27000 mi on it (over 10k since swap)
    Still deciding if i will get the quaife lsd and/or upgraded clutch
    Looking at either 245 45 or 255 45 tires on 18x8.5 wheels
    Purchased a hitch that looks like it will clear dual exhaust in case I decide to go with that again in the future. Also plan to modify said hitch from a class 1 (1.25") to the more common (see "i have some already that fit this") 2" class 2 hitch size.
    250hp and lead foot have wasted 2 of 4 winter tires in less than 1 season
    Still need to get the BCM replaced before I do the BNR tune. Also looking for someone that offers a flex fuel tune for the buick verano.
    Will be going on Power Tour 2019

    Continental Pure Contact 235/45-R18's is the largest I could fit with the least amount of rubbing

    I would love to go on that tour. Have fun!

    @Blasirl Is yours lowered though? I will double check, but my measurements say the wider tires will fit mine.

    It is lowered, but I was looking to buy the tires before I decided to lower. I am a bit foggy brained at the moment, but I was under the impression I could go no wider and not have issues. I'm looking forward to see what you come up with.

    @Blasirl What wheels do you have? How wide and what offset? Do they stick out at all?

    i have the stock LTZ 18" rims at +42 and 7.5" wide. I forgot to mention I tried to stay at 26.1" in diameter. They do not stick out.

    @Blasirl The verano stock tires are 235/45/r18 on 18x 8" for a 26.3" tall tire
    Measurements taken blindly with the car on the ground say even 265/40r18 will fit (would love to put those on the car), really need to get it up on a 4 post lift to check adequately.
