    My annual spring 2012 Cruze clean-up includes removing the air filter and vaccumming the filter and the usual leaf or few blades of grass from the airbox. This year, I got a surprise that has really baffled me. A mouse nest! How Chevy could design the air intake so a mouse could get up inside...

    Just curious if anyone has tried this yet and if so, how it worked out. I have a 2017 hatch and all I really want it to actually hear the turbo a little. So I tried the airbox mod, where you remove the bottom of the box and just zip tie the top part with the airfilter and MAF to secure it. It...
  3. Gen2 Powertrain
    I couldn't keep my Cruze stock for more than a week... I replaced the stock air filter with a conical AEM Dryflow filter and removed the inlet snorkel ducting. It's still too quiet so I will be fabricating my own short ram intake when hptuners figures out why I cannot pull the stock tune file...
  4. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hey I remember reading on the last gen cruze that the best mod for the 1.4l was removing something under the airbox? Some piping or something? Does that still apply to my 2016 Cruze? If so anyone know if it's the same process?
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was thinking about building or buying an intake, so I decided to modify the stock airbox and see what happens. The goal was to increase the turbo noise and maybe get a little better throttle response. I attached dropbox pictures because I kept getting upload errors...

    This may be a stupid question, but has anyone found a way to keep the intake inside the engine compartment and make or buy an airbox? the factory intake is sealed as to not draw in hot air from the engine. so most people run the tube and filter down into the fender but that can lead to sucking...

    I opened up the airbox and what it seems to be was an air restrictor and I took it off (pretty simple) I was wondering if anyone else has done this and if it was a restricted or maybe ment for something else.
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    Let me start by saying I completely understand that an aftermarket intake will flow better than the OEM unit will, especially when fitted with a less restrictive filter. I get that. I was curious to see how well the stock intake flowed, but how to measure this? Well, it is quite common in...

    So right now I have a k&n inside the airbox with a res delete. How much louder will it be with a k&n short ram ? Would my wife notice and will the turbo be much louder than it is now ? Thanks for the input Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App

    I have for sale the OEM factory airbox with lid and the plastic tubing. It is for the 1.4L engine. Its still in like new condition. It is clean, with no dirt or dust. I maintain all my parts while in storage. The attached picture was taken right before I installed my CAI, and it looks this clean...

    So about two months ago, I got into an accident (not my fault) in my six month old Cruze and it was totaled. I saved as much as I can from it thinking I was getting another cruze but after shopping around, I ended up getting a Chevy Volt! Both are great cars and I give props to Chevy on them...
  12. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey everyone, this may sound dumb, but i'm having trouble removing the drain tube and was wondering if someone might be able to explain to me what exactly to do, I can not get the clips out of the fender for anything! Help! Please!

    Hey guys, I'm fairly new to the Cruze forums but I just got my Cruze last month and I'm really enjoying it so far. I'm interested in doing some research and experimenting on the stock airbox but can't use my original since I'm just experimenting and it might end up being junked afterwards. I...
  15. Gen1 Powertrain
    I did the airbox mod and removed the snorkel. Haven't noticed any issues but yesterday my ambient temperature display was going up as high as 93 degrees when the outside temperature was about 70. Does anyone know where the abmient temperature display gets the value from? Is there a sensor in...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is there really a difference between an aftermarket intake and the OEM airbox after performing a "snorkelectomy" by removing all the snorkels and resonators before the airbox? I did the latter, only leaving the tube down into the fenderwell, and have no complaints. The turbo spooling is clearly...
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello, I wanted to make this post so everyone knows the weight of the OEM, factory, stock air box. I personally did my switch to a Injen CAI, instead of SRI. Chevrolet Cruze ECO 1.4L Turbo Airbox and associated parts weight = 6.2lbs Parts Included: - Main airbox (Including all parts, filter...
  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys After reading several threads on airbox mods, I decided to give it a try. It also convinced me to join the forum! 2011 eco 6sp Many have recommended delete the pipe between the resonator and the bottom of the air box, and just let her breath from the fender well. I put my own twist...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I can't find a how to on the airbox mod (Removal of box below filter housing). Am I overlooking it? I did it on my cobalt and drop in filter and it was nice. May do an Injen later.
  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    ok i have a question, why cant you take the factory lower air box and just cut a section of it out. you will get more air into the airbox, and it would have to be louder. ive done this mod on the 99-07 silverado trucks and it has always helped those trucks out. its kind of like opening up the...
