I would love the extra power of a tune, however pushing the engine beyond the design limits GM intended WILL adversely effect how long the engine and transmission last. Your right though, the car will always be slow, even with 40+ Horsepower & 50+ more torque.i'd stay away from the tune. it's 138 hp, around 3100 lb and just isn't going to be fast, tune or not. stock mine is smooth as baby oil and runs perfect on cheap 87 octane gas.
Could buy a leftover 2012-2013 impala with a 3.6L v6 that would definitely take my 1LT 0-60(even if I tuned my cruze) and probably get almost as good of MPG hwy. Ya the cruze is a rocket.... that gets smoked by a stock grandmas car. 2013 Chevrolet Impala V6 acceleration 0-60 0-80 - YouTube
