  1. Highway MPG.... What's your car getting ?

    Fuel Economy
    Last tank was 48 MPG (hand calculated) in my tuned and deleted 2014 diesel. Made it from Abbotsford, BC to Edmonton, AB on a tank (just under 700 miles). Lots of hills on the drive and I was averaging around 75 mph for most of it. Winter tires are on the car and only at about 40 PSI. Before the...
  2. Delete tune and down pipe now available

    Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    The tune and delete requires the downpipe and the tune. I've listed the parts and the costs below. I've also included the cost of the EGR blocker plate. This isn't necessary to do the tune and delete as the tune shuts off the EGR, but some people choose to do it to clean up the engine bay. I...

    Lol. Many aspects of your post are quite comical. Thanks for the laugh.

    Really, the only point here worth responding to is thanking you for proving that you don't know how to read. Your link states that it is not condoned, not that it is illegal and also states that legislation varies across Canada. If you can't read a link that you provided, I definitely wouldn't...

    Couldn't agree more. Really need a tune and delete subsection on the forums. Although, the anti-delete crowd would likely still come and point out how we're all wrong. Maybe need a tune and delete subsection with the rule that if you post and are anti-delete, your post gets deleted with repeat...

    I was going to post something similar, but the last time I got in a war with an anti-delete guy, the ban hammer was threatened and my post was deleted lol.

    This has also been touched on a lot on this forum, but a tune and delete does not necessarily void your powertrain warranty. If you read the terms and conditions of your warranty, it very clearly states that damages caused by modifications are not covered by warranty. Although, as I've also said...
  8. New to site and questions about Cruze 2.0 TD

    CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    The only time mine hasn't started in the cold was due to a weak battery that I knew was on it's way out. I usually plug it in if it's below -15*C (5*F). It still always starts below that temperature if it's not plugged in, I just figure it's a lot better for it to have it plugged in when it's...
  9. Emissions delete/race tune install

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I left the SCR in mine. Just took out the DPF, installed the downpipe, unplugged the throttle valve, installed the tune and fired her up. I think that's what most people are doing. I considered doing the EGR blocker plate as well, but everyone said that it wasn't necessary as the tune shuts off...
  10. Emissions delete/race tune install

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Yep! Warms up to the same temperature as before (one tick off the middle) just takes an eternity to get there. I think heavy highway driving would help. It only really ever seems to gain heat if your on the throttle a bit, slowing down and idling it loses heat, but highway it always seems to...
  11. Emissions delete/race tune install

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Those videos would've been helpful when I was doing mine lol. Took me an hour to realize I had missed a bolt on the heat shield and that's why it wouldn't come off.
  12. Shell Rotella T6 5W-30

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Interesting to be reading this. I was actually going to start a thread to see if anyone who is deleted had changed up what oil they were using. The cost of oil never really bothers me. It doesn't need to be changed often enough to be a big deal. I've used the European Car Filter formula in mine...

    You’ve got almost as many miles on your 2017 A’s I’ve got on my 2014 lol.
  14. Bitcoin blasts past $14K

    Off Topic Discussion
    I struggle to wrap my head around Bitcoin. To me, it's sort of like a pyramid scheme in the sense that there is people that got in at the right time and will get out at the right time and make a lot of money, but there are others who will hold on for too long or have gotten in too late and will...
  15. Want a trouble free diesel Cruze?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    By far the best money I've spent on mine. Only have about 1500 km's with it tuned and deleted, but it's been fantastic and I'm absolutely love driving it since the tune and delete. I'm going to be writing a review on it here soon, but want to get some more mileage on it first.
  16. 2016 Cruze Turbo Leaking Oil Pan Gasket At 22K

    Gen2 Service Issues
    Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever owned a GM that didn’t leak a bit and this is my fourth GM. None of them have had substantial enough leaks to drip, but all have had visible amounts of oil on the pan. This is how I looked at it with my diesel to conclude it really doesn’t matter. -Does it...
  17. Close to Pulling the Trigger on Tune & Delete

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Did you end up fixing it yourself or having to take it in? Mine goes in on Thursday to have the winter tires put on and they're going to look at the connection at that point. Also, bit of an update. I did a short highway trip yesterday. It was probably about 150 km's. I still haven't put the...

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Well, figured out my AC issue. When I took the DPF out, it must’ve caught the connection for the compressor and broke it. I tried to fix it last night, but I think the clip that holds the connection together is going to have to be replaced (might even need the harness for it replaced). I’m going...

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    No luck with the AC yet. I haven't had a chance to jack the car back up and look underneath, but from up top all the connections look fine. I'm thinking I'll go through and test the fuses too, but need to buy a fuse tester. What I might do is just ask that Fountain Tire takes a look at it when...
  20. Close to Pulling the Trigger on Tune & Delete

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I'll wait until like a month or so before doing a full review on the tune & delete, but here are some first impressions. -Off the line the car has so much better throttle response. It's not instant, but if you floor it, it's like a half second delay now and under normal acceleration the...
