  1. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Hi! So, let me start out with this: I am a full-stack developer and a life-long computer guy. I am a Linux user, server architect, etc etc etc. I have spent my whole life working with computers. That being said, I am having a hard time finding any info on programming ECUs (without buying...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I want to get some more power out of the car, and was wondering if anyone has swapped the turbo. Also what do you all have for cold air intakes, exhausts, and blow offs?
  3. Cruze Owner Projects
    hey, after completing a stage 1 tune on my 2013 cruze 1.6 turbo, i have realised that i want my car to make so more noise. Exhaust fitting companies have advised me that the best way to get a throaty sound with the crackle and pop, is to 'do the resonator'. whether it mean removing the...
  4. General Discussion
    So, there are a lot of threads and Google searches regarding modding a 1.4L. However, I am wanting to mod my 1.8L, I am entertaining the idea of eventually adding a turbo to it, but to start I want to add in a new intake, among a few other things. I figure I would lay out what I want to do and...
  5. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Hey all, I am playing on modifying my front bumper fairly drastically. first off I want to remove the center bar (same paint as the car) where the chevy bowtie is, as well as remove all chrome to black it out. I than want to make custom fog light mounts to hold in 2 6" light bars. I want to get...
  6. General Discussion
    I just cannot get the urge to mod the Cruze. I have done the basic's (removed res, regapped plugs) those type of things, and am having the body shop install the RS bumper. But other then that, I just do not have the urge to upgrade. I have my supercharged Sunfire, and its under the knife right...
  7. General Discussion
    Ok hey guys, what's up? Well I got a bunch of questions. Oh my car is the 1.4l turbo First off tuning the psi for the turbo, how would I go about doing that? Adjustable coil-overs where and how much? Intakes... What works best on the 1.4? Things I can do under the hood to improve hp, but not...
  8. Fuel Economy
    Most guys on this forum talk about their Tune/Intakes and their FE. Well I am going to play devils advocate here and discuss how I am doing with FE on my 2012 Eco without any mods. I do have a K&N drop in filter, new plugs gapped at .035 and only running 87 octane. I have been watching my MPG go...
  9. Gen1 Powertrain
    Ok, so I just bought my first Chevrolet Cruze - a 2011 Dark Red (Maroon) LT with the RS pkg. It is used with 18,900 miles on it and has the 1.4L turbo ECO engine. I am wanting to do some simple low cost modifications to it. I have tinted the windows to 15% and want to paint the bowties - but...
  10. General Discussion
    I was reading through one day just how many inquiries we get about modifications for fuel economy and costs of different trims paying themselves back or if the Cruze will even help the financial situation of lurkers relative to their current cars. Then I thought, why test it out on a...
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    So I picked up a Cruze Eco over the weekend for one reason only - the MPG. I am currently looking to build this car for optimum fuel efficiency. I am looking for any tips. My biggest question is - does anyone know the weights of aftermarket parts vs. stock. I honestly do not care about power for...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello everyone, this is my first post and I'm very excited to be picking up my new Cruze LT Turbo within a few days! From what I understand, the Cruze is a relatively new model car. I'm not looking to do anything crazy...but I'd like to add an intake, better muffler/exhaust, possibly a chip/ECU...
