Bought a 2017 Cruze Hatch LT automatic about 3 weeks ago and this will be my place to show it off. I will be doing it slowly and logging what I can using HPTuners and Dash Command. The plan is to return to complete stock and then run it record results. Then add the cold air intake, run it, record results. Upper charge pipe...you get the drift.
I have done some things, fairly minor, quick things to make it run better. A list below of things to do in no particular order.

Cold Air Intake
Upper charge pipe
Lower charge pipe
Lowering springs
Exhaust, cat back
Downpipe
Trifecta or BNR tune
...other performance related items

I like it! I like the hatch more and more, very tasteful so far! Can't wait for the results. Does anyone know the parasitic loss of the auto vs manual?

Thank you. I just got my replacement intake pipe from AEM. The original one had some burnt through welds. Sent me a new one pretty quickly.

Did a little test a little bit ago. Is this information helpful to anyone? Trying to do some runs using dash command as my timer then do the same run and log it using HPTuners.

I ordered the GMPP fog lights, suspension package, and illuminated front emblem. The place emailed me back saying that the fog lights and illuminated emblem has not been released by GM yet.
So for now I am only getting the suspension package.
Updates to follow when installing.

None of these parts have been released by GM yet so now trying to find alternative sources.

Ordered a 3 way ODBII 3-way plug so, in theory I will be able to log using HPTuners, DashCommand and Ultragauge. That way I can monitor and log times and make sure they all jive together.

So here is the plan. The car is in the shop now for a CEL and the door lock button on the exterior handle not working. But the car is completely stock. I will, hopefully, bring it back home tomorrow.

I will be finding a 1/4 mile straight and doing 2 passes, thoughts?

2 passes stock
2 passes with AEM CAI
2 passes with BNR throttle body spaced
2 passes with AEM CAI and BNR spacer
2 passes with AEM CAI and GMPP Exhaust
2 passes with GMPP Exhaust and BNR spacer
2 passes with AEM CAI and BNR spacer and GMPP Exhaust

All being data logged with DashCommand and HPTuners. Still waiting on Ultragauge.

Just got the car back. The clip that held on the intake tube coming off the intercooler was bent and one side was not holding under pressure. New intake tube and clip. Now to install the GMPP exhaust when the pipes cool down.

Thoughts are you have a lot of disposable income. And that is a good thing. Throttle body spacer is a waste of money. Besides sounding cooler, don't think the CAI will do anything for you.
Exhaust may help, but most of the manufacturers have already figured out how to maximize exhaust systems for power and fuel economy. It may give some better sound.
