  1. Gen2 Powertrain
    I replaced the MAF. But still saying the other one is bad. I get the dreaded "Loss of Engine Power" and it feels like it is running on a single piston. I am trying to find someone who can give me a tune. Will this help at all? Has this happened to anyone? What do I do?

  3. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hi guys and gals, just wondering what you have found for the gen 2 LE2 engine in regards to performance and if there is any news on new parts for better durability and more hp/tq gains. I know there is the basic stuff like tunes and a cold air intake, but what else is there? I will also be on...

    If I am not mistaken the same LE2 DI engine was used on all 2nd gen Cruzes from 2016 till production ended this year? Or was there some sort of 'refresh' of the LE2 in 2018 and 2019 model years. Reason I ask is I noticed the recommended Oil for the 2018 and 2019 LE2 Cruzes is 0w-20 vs 2016 and...

    Hello everyone. Can anyone tell me how to take off the valve cover of a LE2 1.4L Chevy Cruze engine? And are there any special tools I will require?
  6. Gen2 Service Issues
    As many of you know, the ACDelco UPF64R is the recommended service filter for the LE2. The PF64 is not recommended not is any of its cross references due to issues with many of them having the PF48 bypass specification, not even the newer, higher, PF64 bypass spec. Many companies finally...

    Just making this car run the way I believe it should. 55+ MPG highway with 200+ft/lbs and not your typical grandma car. I like surprising people on the highway.

    Does the PCM have flex fuel tables in it like the first gen turbos did, and can you add the alcohol sensor and install a tune that enables them? Have any of the commercial tuners done this yet, or would it be strictly a DIY project in EFILive or similar? I'm not going to run E85, but I can...

    I found this forum looking for info on intake mods for the 2nd gen. I found a post a user did on making a Spectre DIY intake, but can't seem to find it now. Anyway, here's a pic of mine I made. It has been five days since I installed it. I never got a check engine light. I got a serious lack of...

    This question has probably been answered somewhere on here, so I apologize if I'm beating a dead horse here...anyways, does the K&N Typhoon part # 69-4521TS fit the 2016.5's LE2? I had one on my 1st Gen Cruze and would love to be able to hear the turbo a little better on my 2nd Gen. Thanks in...

  15. 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?

  18. Gen2 Powertrain
    I managed to get a dealer stock LE2 out for a good power test.All in all it does have more power than the old 1.4 but it also seems to drop off power faster or feel more governed than the old engine.At any rate either engine with stock tuning feels limited at the top end.And the new engine more...

    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...
