  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey guys like the title says, my check engine light is on in my 2014 LTZ and the thing barely starts, if at all. I waddled it to Autozone where they pulled the codes and they were for the Crankshaft Position Sensor and Camshaft Position Sensors A and B. Car only has 48k miles on it. It...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    I want to put a bigger capacity radiator in my 2011 Cruze 1.4t eco. Why? Two reasons. First the pressure would be reduced because of a greater area to pressurize. Second on long trips (which for me is everyday over hills) the stupid temp gauge will spike at least once. More coolant volume would...
  3. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I just finished up going to the 2016 Buick Enclaves brakes, except for calipers, and it was well worth the hassle of trying to find the caliper carriers. Those stupid things are backordered across the nation with no signs of when they will not be. I ended up having to buy the caliper and...

    Before making any changes to your car you must have the skills and the tools. If you don't have both, have your licensed auto mechanic do the work. No exceptions. Brakes are a life and death situation. Going is optional, stopping is mandatory. Thanks to the Sonic forum for much research on...

    Hello everybody, so I have been working with a leading alternator company to design a high output alternator for us cruze guys. Besides that, heres my question, any possible errors that could come with installing a 275 amp alternator? Thanks!
  6. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I put a new sound system in my car, amp to doors and amp to subs, but my lights dim whenever the bass is going, not a lot but noticeable to me. My question is I checked out the battery and it looks like it can fit a bigger sized one would that work ? anybody have any suggestions or comments on...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is there any way to put a v6 or v8 into a 1.4T? I know it will take a lot of fabrication.. but if I wanted to throw a camaro engine or a Chevy crate engine in, do you all thing it would have enough room in the engine bay to support a bigger engine? I just wanted to take an economy car and make...

    Are there any companies going to release any lowering springs soon with bigger drops than what's out there now?
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Just a thought I had figured I would share in case no one has thought about it . So it is almost impossible to make serious power out of the 1.4. And having such a small displacement is pretty useless unless you were to build a serious race car that is always revving high like 10k rpms or...
  12. Gen1 Powertrain
    I was looking at all the reputable turbo manufacturers, and to me this one seems to be a good fit between power and size. Garrett GT Technology Ball Bearing Turbos Only from HorsepowerFreaks looking at the Garrett GT2576R. Oil and water cooled, so you can plumb in all the stock cooling pipes...
