Cool. Ironically, I just got mine in the mail the other day.

What other mods do you currently or are you planning to have?

Currently installed ZZP intercooler, injen intake, catback exhaust, zzp downpipe, and trifecta tuned. Soon as some warmer weather hits I will be installing the racer x manifold along with new #42 lbs injectors, new iridium sparks along with zzp ignition pack. future big turbo kit for the cruze i just want to upgrade from stock cams and zzp #72 valve springs if my turbo needs it, for a future bigger turbo 100% i would replace maybe even connecting rods and pistons all depends though.
I really need to fix a transmission oil line leak I recently found before I do really anything but I dont think the manifold will change much on that side of things....Ill keep you posted JLL!

I have a new zzp billet wastegate as well just dont think ill be installing that on the stock turbo. Working with ZZP as we speak for their V3 kit, I like zzp and dont mind giving them my business they have helped so much over the years with this car I cant thank them enough!

what coils do you have? my Cruze is on lowering springs now. I'm trying to build it into something fun to drive but not much done to it. I put an AEM intake, ZZP downpipe and that's all my performance lol. so far it's mostly been maintenance. just upgraded the spark plugs and coil pack.

@CHEVYCRUZE RS have you owned your Cruze since new?
Yup ordered her in 2010 and got it beginning of 2011. Me and my dad love our cars and I drove a lot of great cars but something about the Cruze it has always felt right with me I will never get rid of it, coming from a big GM family as well haha

I bought the DGR coil overs from austrilia when they first came out , I didn’t have many options back in 2012 but I have not had one problem with these coil overs LOVE THEM and first time trying this brand

What real difference does an aftermarket actuator make?
Has a better firmer spring then stock turbo but ZZP doesn't recommend running ZZP actuator on their v3 turbos just something to keep in mind! Not really a HP gain mod just holds better boost for now with this trash turbo lol cant wait to get rid of it
