So far I have removed all chrome, took apart emblems and painted, painted trim, tinted lights, lowered, wheels, BNR tune, BNR wastgate, BNR turbo actuator, Mishimoto intercooler, K&N intake, Borla exhaust, deleted resonator, Alpine head unit, JBL & Kicker amps/speakers. The Alpine head unit can be a real muther to get the factory functions working. The intercooler wasn't bad as long as you have the means to weld stainless steel, cut the pipe and crimp the ends. Also made a functional air scoop on the right side above the fog light. Gotta add the pics. Painted my engine cover just because. I have done all of this myself so if you have a GEN 2 cruze you know there's not a lot out there for these so I have made my own stuff. In the process of making a down pipe since none are available. If you have any questions about what I've done, i have no problem helping out if I can. I understand the pain of a Gen 2 owner.

Good Start!

I am interested in seeing more about the air scoop. Also is the FIMIC made for the Cruze or did you have to modify it?

I used a universal kit, bought the gm bung and welded on a section to keep oem location mostly. MAP sensor is mounted to the oem intake. That's the biggest pain in the ass.

OEM INTERCOOLER not intake.
The itercooler has been replaced with the Mishimoto . The intake piping holds the MAP sensor and fimiliar with the issue as I went a similair route on my Gen 1 Cruze. Though I opted to go with aluminum piping . . Now I could be mistaken here and the Map is part of the OEM intake itself ..

Yeah, the MAP sensor is mounted to a bung on the drivers side of the intercooler. I used a piece of exhaust piping because I couldn't find a aluminum bung to weld on.
Foglights come on the RS trim
They are the stock RS fog lights that I painted the red trim and tinted the lens.
