  1. Gen2 Service Issues
    I'm concerned about the GDI engine's tendency to deposit gunk on the intake valves. I have a scope to throw in the manifold. I noticed some buildup. This was at about 18k. I tried to use CRC. It's cleaned the heck out of my intake and turbo, but seems to have deposited crud directly on to my...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    Has anyone used Fumoto valves on the cruze? Search doesn't show a single post for them. I'm about to buy a Cruze and thinking of throwing one on. They list one that fits, but I haven't seen the underside of the car. F106S - Engine Oil Drain Valve with Short Nipple 14mm-1.5 | FUMOTO
  3. TRIFECTA Performance
    With our recent unveiling of FPCM (fuel pump control module) / CCM (chassis control module) recalibration to support larger injectors on the 1.4T, another idea struck us. Could we also recalibrate the FPCM/CCM to allow the addition of dual mode exhaust valves to the Gen1 Chevrolet Cruze /...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was going through some old forms and I saw that there was a topic where a guy wanted to open up our heads and forged the internals but I want to know if someone has done it yet. My current plan is to have the heads opened up, upgrade my springs with bigger valves, and upgrade the pistons...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo

  6. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hey Everyone! So I'm getting to the point on my 2012 Cruze that I'll be needing new tires and this got me wondering if I need to replace the whole TPMS sensor and valve stem combo (Around $25 a piece) or just replace the valve stem onto the existing TPMS sensor (Around $2 a piece). My Cruze is...
  7. Gen1 Powertrain
    Annoyingly I have to keep my cruze for longer, so I might as well keep trying to get it fixed (look at my other posts about the sluggish engine/drive) I was speaking to my Auntie the other day and it came up in conversation, and she had a very similar issue with her Honda CR-V (totally...
