    So, the stock hood (engine hood) is pretty heavy on the cruze! I wondered if there were any cheap replacements out there? I already found a carbon fiber hood, but that's in the likes of $600-800! ? Anything cheaper out there? Fiberglass? Aluminum? Just polling to see if a hood change can be...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Background: I don't drive my cruze in the winter, I have a rusty winter beater for that. So I only drive the Cruze from ~April to early November in MN almost no driving below freezing/32F and there's typically only a weeks-worth of temps above 90F annually. I have been using 5w-30. Any...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Anyone know what the weight of the factory muffler is as compared to performance mufflers. I know when I replaced the factory muffler on my 97 Saturn, with a budget Magnaflow performance muffler, I save at least 25 pounds, which I attributed to my 2-3 mpg improvement. I am hoping for some...

  6. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Sorry if this information is out there, but to my understanding, the ECO trims have FORGED wheels. (forged wheels are stronger and much lighter than regular alloy or steel wheels) I'm looking to get 18'' wheels with stickier rubber (probably Hankook Ventus V4 All-Season High Performance) I'll...
  7. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I just saw this article on Tech Crunch. Thought it was interesting. The battery only weighs 6 lbs. It uses a supercapacitor combined with LiFePO4 batteries. It only has 10 amp hours though. But it could be interesting for those trying to reduce weight in their Cruze. And no more lead-acid. Ohm...
