    Hi, I can't find much info about the ZZP tune other than their own website. I'm deciding between ZZP or BNR for a tune. I only have an AEM cold air intake installed. The website says they don't increase boost beyond 17psi because it makes no difference, though I can't find anything to support...

    My wife and I recently got a 2017 cruze LT, automatic not knowing it had auto stop. When we did the test drive, it was below 41 degrees and it never activated. After we purchased it, the weather warmed up. Anyway, now that we know about it, I was curious about how much gas it really saves in the...

    I’ve had my 2017 Cruze Premier Hatch, for a little over 3 weeks, now. In this review, I outline my pros and cons with this car. This being my 4th Cruze, I can offer some comparison and contrast, to the Generation 1 Cruze. First thing, the car. I was interested in the Hatch, from the second I...

    vs Civic, Mazda3, and VW Golf. While the Cruze is not as sporty as these, I was a little surprised. I love Honda's manual transmissions, but they ride too rough and are too loud for me, as is the Mazda3. I have never driven a VW, so not sure about those. Just got the new issue yesterday...
  6. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I decided to do a comparison after a few members have asked for a comparison of aftermarket led headlights to the stock halogen bulbs. For my tests camera settings have a fixed iso and exposure. Let's start with some specifications. The stock bulb in our cars are the Sylvania H13 Halogen...

    TRIFECTA: 1.4L Turbo Throttle body comparison LE2 to LUJ/LUV During our tear-down, we decided to take a few moments and compare the throttle body on the LE2 engine to the throttle body on the LUJ/LUV. While they are very similar in size, there are some interesting and noteable differences. The...

    Hi All, I got my 2nd Cruze about 3 weeks ago. I previously had a 2013 with the RS Package. Both are 1 LT's. The one that I just got (2016) is in the Red Tintcoat. Doesn't have the RS Package, but it has some other nice packages (heated mirror, auto-dimming review mirror, My Link System...
  9. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I thought you Diesel guys would be interested. Not being a Diesel owner, I can't comment, but the comparison is interesting. Note, this is a Canadian website comparison with measurements and costs. Quick Comparison: Chevrolet Cruze Diesel vs Volkswagen Golf TDI - Autos.ca | Page 4
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    Here's a screen cap I took of my first UOA at 6500 miles, along with an Eco UOA at 6500 and another LS UOA at 6500. The order is: Rocco611's 2012 Eco --> ScaredPoet's 2011 LS --> My 2014 LS So I'm wondering, which of these would you prefer to see on your car? I think ScaredPoet's is the...
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    So, I was looking up some performance data on the different Cruze's to see how they lined up against one another, and I thought everyone might find this interesting. I find that 0-60 mph and quarter mile times all sound good, but aren't always the best indicator of a cars actual performance...

    Background: Both cars purchased new, single owner (me). When I bought my Malibu I didn't really have a very good idea about what class or type of car I wanted. When I test drove the Malibu I had the idea that a bigger car that would be good for road trips with friends, some of who couldn't...
  13. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Several years ago I stumbled on this thread over at Diesel Place (Dmax forum) which is an excellent thread comparing popular diesel additives. The thread is a bit long, but the vast majority of the information is in the first post. Most notably from the study, lubricity was improved best...

    First off I've got a 11' 1.4 auto with k&n cai and full trifecta tune. The question I have is what psi does your car limit to at WOT while in 5th or 6th gear? I will have 25~29 psi from 1st up to 4th, then as soon as the car shifts into 5th and 6th, it defaults to 10psi. This is while in sport...

  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    hello all I am trifecta tuned on my 2012 1.4t 6A cruze 2LT. I have another thread discussing my ongoing issue with boost not building properly. I am seeking anyone that has experience reading trifecta tunes on our cruzes. Basically i want to compare my log with another similar cruze to see if...

    Thought this was of some interest to Cruze owners. The Cruze does in fact have reversing sensors but some early build ones didn not have them fitted yet. Golf v Focus v Cruze v Mazda3 v Corolla 2013 | Small Car | Drive.com.au - YouTube

    Greetings Cruze owners! My wife and I are picking up a 2012 Cruze Eco 6-spd manual tomorrow and I thought I would share my impressions/experiences from deciding between the Cruze and a new Focus. I'm not a lifelong Chevy fan or anything, I've owned three Dodges (Avenger, Dakota, Ram), a Ford...

    My brother told me about this on CBC Marketplace. Very interesting results on the gas front, but also interesting to see that the test car was a 2013 Chevy Cruze. See for yourself... Pump Fiction - Marketplace
  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello, I have a 2011 Cruze LTZ RS, 1.4L and so far this is what I've seen on the threads; K&N doesn't void warranty, the short cam is the way to go, but it also doesn't replace all of the old one. Now Injen voids warranty, and needs a tune-up afterwards (maybe that's just the SRI) it replaces...
