  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I replaced my ecu after hp tuners crapped out during a flash. I had a spare e78 with the same os and part number. I reflashed it with sps and now I can see the ecm again but the service theft deterrent system message is on. I have been researching for the last couple of days.... Nothing but...
  4. Gen 1 Tuning/Modifications
    I recently had a chance to play around with a legit one and a few cars. It's ugly as hell but a cool device, but I want your guys opinion. Who has used it? Who thinks it's dumb for us? Success stories? Fails? Spit them out here.

    I am building and off road buggy and I will be using he 1.4 turbo. What I need to find out is where can I get someone to setup the stock ecu for it.

  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Pretty much have been stuck at 220 whp with the stock ECU. None of the known tuners out there seam to be confident running a big turbo on a tune over 22 Psi (stock MAP sensor max) I have a 3.3 bar sensor that will bolt in but the resolution goes to low and the fueling starts to stray pretty...

    Just can't seem to find this on the forum :( Any "recommended" software for reading ecu codes on my 1.6L? Being based in South Africa, I'd have to import. My vehicle just came out of warranty, so won't really be seeing the dealership alas General Motors left our shores end of last year! My...

  16. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi all. I'm not positive if this is the right place to post this, but it seems to be the closest topic I could find. Wondering if I could get some feedback from other owners who use the Torque ODBII app. I've used a bluetooth scanner and the Torque app on my 2011 1.4L many times since owning...

    Hi, I received a letter which states that my 2011 Cruze Eco is recalled for an ecu update. Lately in summer it has been over 100F, and the car doesn't have much acceleration on the highway. My mpg numbers also dropped from 36 to 34.5 average. I think that has to do with the ac being on almost...
