    Hi all, I am in the middle of taking two engines and turning them into one for my turbocharged 2014 Cruze (1.4 Litre). I am just about to put the pistons in, but I can't find the photos I took that show the arrow direction on the top of the piston. Can Anyone help me?
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    Issue: My Cruze has an odd issue. Wondering if anyone here has had a similar issue. When the oil dipstick is inserted my oil pressure drops off. The only way to keep oil pressure while the dipstick is inserted is by keeping the RPMs up over 2k. While at idle the low oil pressure light comes on...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have approximately 110,500km on my 2014 Eco 6 speed manual now. I bought the car with approximately 65,000km on it, and have noticed that the car has burned about 1 quart of oil every 3,000km.

  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    I'll try to be as short as possible with my issues, so bear with me. A few weeks ago, while cruising down the interstate, my car goes into "limp mode" and I get the Reduction in Engine Power, Service Traction Control, and Service Stabilitrak warning lights on my HUD. I manage to get off the...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Searched the 1.4L Turbo forum and haven't seen anything really discussed about it.. I mentioned something in somebody's Bigger Turbo thread but I think it was overlooked. VTuners sells upgraded valves and stronger pistons. Linkhttp://www.vtunerperformance.com/?page_id=59 Has anyone ordered...
