  1. Cruze Owner Projects
    Project 1.8 Turbo (Turdbo) I'm back, after a long time not owning a Cruze. Bought a 2012 1.8 LS with manual trans in 2016. Got an itch for a turbo 4 cylinder project. Thought about going the Honda route, but 'Merica, uniqueness, and with these times, I thought "why not turbo what I have, my...

    I just bought a new car in Melbourne, Australia.....a Holden Astra Sedan MY18. It's a rebadged Chevy Cruze built in South Korea. Other then being RH drive almost everything about the car is nearly identical and certainly the closest thing I can reference when working out what I need to do for...

Right now its got 30,000 miles on it and I bought it brand new. Had the illuminated door sills put in by GM and I gotta say it does...

  6. Cruze Owner Projects
    Well here it goes, this is my project....2014 Cruze Diesel with 93k miles, bought from the infamous Copart auction(yay). I have mixed feelings about that "wonderful" business, but that's a whole other thread. I decided that my last auction vehicle was not worthy enough for my 80mi/day drive as...

  8. Cruze Owner Projects
    I've been toying with this post since day one and would have probably never posted it, but someone I know was harassing me, so here is the text beginning. Pictures will follow - sometime. My main impediment is every time I complete something, something else goes south or I change my mind and...

    Finally completed installing cold air intake and my upper intercooler piping project. Love the way it looks and can feel a little bit more responsiveness. Aem cold air intake 2" tubing with 3 2" elbow and 2 2" to 2.5"
  10. Cruze Owner Projects
    Hey guys, I've got a 2016 Cruze that I've already done a couple things to and I really wanna just keep going performance wise. Already I have: the front and back bow ties plasti-dipped black, I have the headlights upgraded from the factory to HID's and a custom sound system installed. Door...
  11. Cruze Owner Projects
    I'm back from the bowels of the internet to post and share the next part of my Cruze Build, or as some people would say, V4 [Going off of color, since it was stock Silver, Black Rose, then Khaki Green]. Anyhow, time to move away from the car show focus, and ruin the car even more than I already...
  12. Cruze Owner Projects
    I'll just leave some teaser pics of the tacked up manifold for now. Should have some time to finish welding it up this week before sending it out for ceramic coating. Car is currently full bolt-ons (Custom 3.5" intake with 3" MAF housing, Custom 3" DP, Straight Pipe 2.5" side exit exhaust)...
  13. Gen2 Powertrain
    I just completed my DIY intercooler Upper pipes for 2016+ Gen2 Cruze. No one has it available, so i did it myself. I currently own a Cobalt SS and my wife has a Gen 2 Cruze Sedan Manual Shift. The ZZP upper and lower pipes on my Cobalt SS were measured and saw that it was close and angles...
  14. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    Just recently purchased my new 2017 Chevy Cruze ls and I was super hyped to have it with android auto. I can not get it to work consistently, as soon as I plug the USB cable in the icon does not change from the "Project" to the Android Auto icon. It does't do anything for maybe 30 seconds before...
  15. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    When I spray the Plastidip, it comes out in little blobs. :wtf: Is that normal? Took about six coats to cover the chrome back bar and looks like lizard skin. I have painted a number of vehicles in the past, so even though I'm getting senile, I'm pretty sure it isn't my technique. Any...
  16. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    Hi all, I decided to make my 2010 Diesel Cruze a project car. I mean i want to get bodykits, new head and tail lights, aftermarket sunroof ( not too sure about this one yet), air bag suspensions and many more. I have a few question though. As my cruze was just a standard model with no extra...

  19. Gen1 Audio/Electrical Tutorials
    Hello everyone! If you are like me, you love your cruze and you love modifying it. I recently purchased a set of Spec D lights for my car; the ones with the LED swoosh. I hate the projectors on them! They are horrible! So I decided to retrofit them. Instead of taking the lights I originally...
  20. Cruze Owner Projects
    New to the forum (and Cruze ownership). I debated several cars (some even far more expensive), but ultimately loved the lines of the Cruze. I ended up buying mine with 1 kilometer on the gauge on January 27th. I want to keep this a fairly classy clean project, and have started with what I...
