  1. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I have a habit of noticing very subtle changes in things. Lately, I've noticed that Bruzer has been delivering an unusual power increase during the RPM range that delivers peak torque. It was most noticeable today when accelerating on to the freeway. I have a light foot, so I'll press the pedal...

    So it appears our fellows at the Fiesta ST forums, have found a way around the heat soak from their engines, while heat soak always will be an issue, it can be greatly reduced; at a low cost, and I didn't know it. Previously I filled up with regular (@2,50/gal), and added 1 to 2 gallons of...
  3. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Has anyone noticed this ever happening? My MPGs went down about a year and a half, maybe 2 years, ago by a noticeable but manageable amount. It has been the least of my concerns with the car. I have been driving it harder lately. Additionally, I usually drive around 70 on the interstate, but was...
  4. Gen1 Powertrain
    I know mostly everyone here looks for top peak power/performance/acceleration, but im looking for a different approach. Im not interested in top RPM power but low to mid. Im looking for acceleration and torque on the low to mid end. Besides a tune which is a must, what other things can...

    Left for work this morning and my dic indicated mpg was 19.2 and range to empty was 445 miles. Drove 58 miles to work and mpg increased to 34.8 but more impressively after driving 58 miles my range to empty increased from 445 to 471 miles. Love seeing range increases :). How much have you...

    I have gotten some mixed reports while searching online and I do all highway driving about 1000 miles every two weeks and does upgrading the intake increase your mpg or will it decrease. From my understanding there are different types of intakes so please excuse my lack of knowledge. I have 2012...

  9. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    It seems like every thread I see are people lowering their car. Is there any method possible to increase the ride height in the Cruze? I'm a cheapskate so chances are I won't actually do any work. I am curious though, as when it comes to unmaintained roads (or snow if I ever see it again) I...

    I figure this will add at least 10HP to my cruise. I was cleaning out the garage when I found it. My boys said it looked good there so I glued him on. :D
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have been a Gear Head since I was a teenager, been to a few years of college and taken a few statistic classes. Worked in manufacturing as an Engineering Tech and a Medical Manufacturing manufacturing company as a Engineering Tech for 12 years. I keep seeing numbers thrown around but no real...

    Is anyone else experiencing Wind Noise sound after Recall Shied removal? On Highway Driving noise is loud. Came back from a Long Road trip before Shield removal No Noise...Now Noise is annoying! Double checked all windows are sealed tight.
  13. General Discussion
    I am in the process of ordering an EZ-Pass tag for my Cruze Eco. I have an option for an internal or external tag. My question is if I opt for the external tag, will it increase the drag coefficient? Hence lowering MPG?
  14. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys I've heard that you can set up the radio to get louder as you go faster ( like get on the hwy ) but I haven't figured out how to do it. I have the Pioneer System if that makes a difference.

    I Didn't see this coming. I knew that sales were growing but I didn't know that sales growth was beating hybrids:

  17. Fuel Economy
    I'm an old wrench, trolling Cruze sites getting valuable info regarding a 2012 Cruze purchase. I gather they do NOT come with a Vac/Boost Gauge, here's some valid points for having one. I drove a 75 Chevy Monza Fastback 2+2, V-8, 4-sp for about 12 yrs. With a Vacuum gauge installed, I was...
  18. Fuel Economy
    With everyone looking for ways to increase mpg, wouldnt a light weight pulley set do that? And also increase power?
  19. Gen1 Powertrain
    I was looking for performance parts and stumbled across pulstar spark plugs at , the website claims quote "The amount of performance will depend on the make, model and condition of your engine. In general, you should expect torque to increase by 4 to 12% and realize a significant...
  20. General Discussion
    Anyone else see the $300 MSRP increase? Is this due to simply heading into 2nd qtr, or maybe some parts come from Japan and the tsunami effected the price? I tried to google search but no luck. Just courious. Glad I got mine last weekend:)
