  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi, My boost used to drop from 22+psi to 15-16psi before 5000rpm and the torque followed the boost curve. Now with the new BNR WGA and retune the boost holds consistently over 21+psi over 6000rpm, but there is no more power top end. With the retune the stock injector duty cycle is up from...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    2014 1.4t AT. Stock. 72k miles. Ive read almost every single thread on here using the keyword "No Boost" but still dont think I found a similar situation. So the past 2 weeks I have found that when I hit the accelerate it is WAY under powered. I plugged in my ODB and using TorquePro I saw that...

    Just put a boost gauge in on my 14 1.4T......Tapped into the green and black like below the manifold like everyone says to do and I'm reading under full acceleration 10-12 psi of boost. Is this normal or do I have a leak somewher? Vacume is 20-22.

    Okay ladies and gents, I have finally discovered a great place to tap into for a boost gauge. And I have gotten a pretty accurate measurement of what the turbo is actually running as far as PSI goes. For anyone who wants pictures, Installation steps and info about the max PSI from the turbo on...

    2011 Cruze - I took my car to the local GM dealership the other day and when I got it back the Tire Pressure setting on the dashboard now says KPA rather than the standard PSI here in Canada and USA. I looked in the owners manual and shows that you can change the readout to US/IMPERIAL/METRIC...

    2014 2LT Red Hot Cruze...5-weeks-old. My original tires are P225/50 R17. Recommended pressure, per driver door sticker, is 30 PSI, front and rear. Yet, on this site, I see members quoting 35 PSI, for their cars. ...and, higher for the ECO, of course. Anyone else quoted 30 PSI, per driver...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Right around 10 PSI, I get a stumble. The car bucks for a second, then runs like a champ. It holds boost above 10 PSI consistently, and if it needs 10 PSI again a few seconds later, it does not stumble. RPM doesn't matter, only 10 PSI. Also, if I gradually build boost, I don't get that stumble...

    Hello all, I am trying to find out how to get the psi to show on the display. I crashed my cruze about 8 weeks ago(front passanger side completely caved in) and there lies my problems. The rim and tire were crushed so the body shop had to buy a new rim and tire assembly(steel rim as I have the...

    So I'm set my tires to 40 PSI Cold in the morning. However, we have some variations in temperature, and when we get a swing of 30 degrees hotter during midday and I get the tires hot, they can run as high as 46 PSI. That said...what is considered the limits of safe PSI on tires when they are...

    What is GM's official recommendation for PSI on the FR710s? BOTH front and rear? Whats on the door jam?
  12. Fuel Economy
    edit* Doh! i shoulda put this in the fuel economy section. So I tried increasing my psi to see how it would feel and if I would notice a fuel economy bump. Well all I can say is, I dont know how you guys can drive with your tires so hard! lol. I live in Toronto and I do a lot of city driving...

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey There, Just wondering if anyone knows was the standard PSI or Bar the Cruzes are at from factory? When does your turbo kick in? The car is so smooth on acceleration that it just not that noticeable.
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have been looking at some cat-backs and stumbled across a cutout with a boost-activated switch. I thought it would be a nice feature since it only opens at high psi. Has anyone put a cutout on their Cruze? Is it even worth doing? I have no experience with cutouts...but the ones I have seen on...
  15. Fuel Economy
    my dealer uses Nitrogen so it doesnt change from cold/hot when i go in for an oil change im going to have them pump up the tires. But how high should i go? they are at 35ish on all 4. I heard someone go to 51psi??? Im afraid to go that high. I was thinking around 45psi. Not worried about...
