  2. Gen1 1.8L
    What are good engine upgrades to boost horsepower on the 1.8? I have a 2015 ls. A have put a series 10 flomaster on it and removed the resonator. I also have put a throttle response tuner on it. I've wondered about trying to self mod a turbo kit and doing a custom Dyno tune but other forum...

  4. Gen1 Powertrain
    I want/need to swap out my transmission for a couple reasons. First, I've completely lost the synchro in 2nd gear. Also it has that horrible whine in 5th/6th gears. Probably more importantly, I'm tired of the long gearing that comes with the MF3 (Eco 6spd) transmission. I'm autocrossing the car...
  5. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have a 2014 chevy cruze ls m/t 1.8. This last winter was very rough on my suspension and I'm suspecting I'm in need of a new strut soon. I'm playing around with the idea of getting some sort of performance suspension. I looked around online and I mostly just saw lowering kits which I don't...

    Got a base model and the distortion has started to get to me. Want to upgrade to pioneers. Has anyone done this? I didn’t want to use an amp for the speakers so I’m wondering about sound quality on the stock HU power.

    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...
  9. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Went a few longer range trips and the eco cloth seats are just uncomfortably hard after awhile. I want to snag a leather power seat (not heated) for myself but before I order it, has anybody sat in both and is the leather seat more "comfy" and less hard than the cloth seats? Thanks for any...

    I see an option for an ignition coil upgrade and some have ventured a DIY. Can someone explain how one would assess for an ignition upgrade? How does one monitor for coil drop of under load?

    Hey guys. I have a 2018 Hatchback premier with the 7" MyLink. Is it possible to upgrade to the 8" MyLink? I hate moonroofs so that's why I didn't get it to begin with. Lol. Would it be plug and play or would it need to be programmed? Any help to get me going in the right direction would be truly...

    Hi all, Has anyone ever taken on the task of doing a turbo upgrade for their 2.0 turbo diesel? I have seen some tuners available for the chevy cruze diesel, but I am not sure if there is a tuner available that would work on the car if I were to do a turbo swap. I understand that there aren't...

    My battery is about 4 years old so I decided to replace it. This time, I went with a LiFePO4 battery. It only weighs ~4.5 pounds and should last ten years. I think this is a no-brainer upgrade for anybody who wants a lighter car or just wants a battery that will last forever. Here's a link to...

    Have any of you upgraded your alternator for a high output one looking to add another amp but don’t want to stress out the stock one. If so where did you buy it from and what’s the difficultly of doing it.
  19. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Hi there! I frequented this site many years back and received some great feedback for an audio upgrade. Now that I FINALLY did it, I was just hoping to get some more advice on some issues I'm noticing post-install. So I recently paid to have my tweeters and mid range drivers upgraded to the...

    Hi all, I see that GM finally released a new Module Pack that will allow my iPhone 8 to work with the wireless charger in my 2017 Cruze. Module Pkg - GM (84526978) I see various posts for folks saying it was a 10 minute job to replace, but I think they are referring to the one on the GM Trucks...
