    I have a chevy Cruze 1.8 6 speed I was wondering if anyone has swapped to the 1.4 turbo so I could get some more power because it's hard to find performance parts for the 1.8 but you can get some upgrades for the 1.4
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have had this car since July 2011 and is my first ever! Over the years it has gotten me to work, school and a few road trips to Oregon. At this point in time it sits around 88k miles and has overheated, melted the thermostat plug and a cracked manifold. Do I have any options or having the...

    Has anyone swapped out the smaller middle screened instrument cluster to the larger screen one? I don't know the model names because they are different in australia but the one i have in my 2012 CD doesn't show the digital spedo.

    I have search a few times for the answer to this so sorry if this is a duplicate. So I really want to get new rims for the ole Cruze but 5x105 is waaaaaay less common than 5x115. Today I was looking at the hubs for Gas and Diesel and they appear to be identical. My question is, would this be...

    I was wondering if anyone had tackled this? Looking to swap out the screen to a bigger display. Not so much navigation, just want to have a larger screen. Mark

    I did this swap yesterday. Yes the power seats bolt in and work in a base car. But I am having 2 issues. One is the service airbag light is on. I am not sure if its a BCM issue or what. Also the heater portion does not work either. I did swap the dash trim out to the heated portion but it doesnt...

    I'm planning on replacing my 1LT 16 inch wheels with Firestone FR710's with a set of 2LT 17 inch oem wheels wrapped in Continental TrueContact's (94T) on my 2012 1LT RS. I'm just wondering if anyone has done this and had any issues? The 17's will be a little bit wider, while the current 16's...

    I was wondering if the K&n short ram intake I have on my first Gen cruze sedan will fit on the hatchback engine? I have the amsoil blue dry air filter instead of the k&n oil filter.

    Each time I go into Discount Tire they make a big stink about me declining to pay 8 bucks a tire to rebuild the TPMS sensors and it usually turns into a scene with the sales guy and me. I have a 2012 Cruze and they have already been rebuilt once however every 6 months when I bring it in to swap...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a 2012 Cruze LS. In the far far future, how easy would it be to swap in a 1.4 turbo engine? Or let's say complete swap like tranny, axles, ecu, etc if needed. Would it be a plug and play situation or more of modifying the car to match the engine harness and other parts? Are there any...

    I'm sure this has been covered many times but are there any major issues in swapping factory LTZ wheels onto an LT. My LT currently has air pressure sensors with the larger spoke wheels. Looking to buy some nice LTZ wheels/tires.

    So like most I suffer from low volume from the two rear door speakers and find it out right annoying to not have a level sound from all around me. I have read many old threads about total car speaker swap outs and upgrades of 4 channel speakers but wanted to see what people thought about just...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2011 LT with the cruise control on the wheel and was wanting to put one on that has both the cruise and the audio controls. Will the audio controls work? If not will I have to get the computer flashed or swap the clockspring?
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Has anyone done the E85 conversion kit yet, or installed 42# injectors for other purposes? I am trying to decided to buy the E85 kit or not. Is it fairly simple to swap out the fuel injectors? Is it merely taking off the fuel rail bolts and popping the stock injectors out and installing the...

    I posted a thread on this last year, but I figured I would try again now that Cruzes have been out for a while. I have a 2011 Cruze ECO M/T Crystal Red Metallic. I got it when the ECOs were first coming out in March 2011, so my choices were limited. I got almost everything I wanted in the...

    I've searched and did not find anything in the forum about this exact question. I was just wondering if anyone has thought of, or completed, a swap of a full-capacity tank from another model into an Eco? I'm sure one could be picked up at a salvage yard for a decent price and then you wouldn't...
