    Looking for people in my area of michigan (Detroit/flint) that are interested in seeing Cruzen2.0 or know of any existing meets in that area. Just want to meet people that would be interested in the car, bonus if it's other cruze owners.

    EDIT: I do not use Facebook and dont want to, so i am asking here instead

    I mean, there's always Woodward. There's a 1.4T Cruze that runs around without a hood and with an open downpipe. It's rather hilarious.

    A brief update on the state of Cruzen 2.0

    Dropped off at a local dealer Monday to have the BCM (that I damaged) replaced. Tech installed the new module but couldn't get the car to start, Friday he chased it down to the key not being seen by the BCM via the NFC receiver that reads the key fob if its dead or to program a new one to the car. The dealer ordered a new receiver module and it should be in this coming Monday.

    I had a talk with the tech about how he had determined what the problem was just to make sure one of my numerous mods wasn't the problem. The highlights are that he made sure all the various computers/modules were communicating, then tried a brand new key and still the BCM wouldn't see it.

    As an aside, I was prepared for the cost of this venture, not so much how long it would take! I've been told I'm like someone who's kid is in the hospital, I know its not fatal but I still worry and I want my baby back!

    Oh well, nothing to do but wait for news from the dealer.

    EDIT: I chose to do this now because I want to get a tune for the thing and the dealer wouldn't work on it if I had tuned it. This means if I wanted the problems fixed then I would have to try the BCM replacement before any tuning. And I really want (as an example) the 370hp (peak) from a BNR tune!

    They wouldn't work on it if it was tuned...but yet they work on a car that is more Verano than Cruze? That's pretty funny.

    Also seems odd, the tune shouldn't affect the BCM in the least.

    That said - the 2.0T is definitely down to produce that much power. I know the LNFs with the Trifecta tune in the Cobalts made 350HP easy.

    The dealer I took it to is known for working on all stock swap cars, like a v8 swapped g8 with all factory components. I just didn't want to risk them refusing to do the work if their system flagged a tune in the ecu.

    Also, the Verano is de-tuned from the factory so it's not a direct competitor with the regal with the same engine. GM has done similar things in the past, the more expensive one usually has more power even with the same engine.

    Based on the torque peaks being in a different location, I wonder if a couple other things are changed besides the tune.

    But otherwise, it should be basically the exact same engine itself - throttle body to turbo - but anything before or after might be different enough to shift the torque curve.

    Either way - it's a 2.0T - it'll make assloads of power. Did you retain the ethanol mix sensor?

    Odd, because it uses the LHU, which is the flex-fuel version of the LDK. Interesting...

    @MP81 Same story as with the cruze 1.4t, maps are in the ecu but just doesn't use them or have the sensor
