After 3 years of owning my 2014 diesel Cruze (with ZERO problems BTW after 71,000 miles) I finally got the nerve to dump the DPF, SCR, DEF and EGR system. On anything 50 HP over stock or less it has zero noticeable smoke or exhaust emissions. 50-65 over stock just a slight haze until the turbo fully spools. 65+ is where it starts to get fun, lol. Its nice to not be limited to the seriously restricted DPF. Will be taking it to the track soon.

How big a deal is it to do a DEF delete. We got our 2014 (22,500 miles) about a month ago. Been good so far but I am loosing faith reading some of the posts on here.

Well at least there's a publicly available option once the time comes. I'm sure if it starts to give me problems I'll be going this route (after warranty is up of course).

Thanks for the post!

I am resisting the urge to delete my '15, so far. Fleece is only a 90 minute drive for me too. Only 6500 miles, but a little disappointed in the mileage I'm getting so far. Only getting about the same as my 6MT ECO got. Had hoped for at least 10% better than that.

Not sure where you do most of your driving, but keep in mind that the Eco is actually rated better city than the Diesel. So if you do a lot of city driving, getting the same as an Eco is pretty good. I would think that highway you should be getting at least 10% better though.

80% highway, give or take. Need to get a Scanguage and start monitoring what's going on, I guess.

I have a client(s) with ECO and they do better city, but nothing beats the diesel when we're talking mostly highway, not even the hybrids , who also have a city advantage. Remember, , diesels seem to be most efficient at a constant steady rpm for which the city is not conducive.

Careful, your dealer may claim, as did mine , that the SC2 is the cause of the frequent regens I suffer. I think it's nonsense and so does Scan Gauge. Nothing in the firmware would cause a car to go into regen or alter the stock ECM.

Back on topic : Has anyone done a full delete plus added the larger Garrett and injectors???

Is that with the delete? and how much of it is that I average about 45 if im nit doing mountain driving i want to do the delete for the emission crap issues im having gaining mpgs is a bonus and more power is even better
Deleted, I've seen about a 7-10 mpg increase since this mod. I drive mainly highway/interstate in southeastern Kentucky. Not a lot of big hills but there are very few flat sections. Either going up or down hill all the time.

Well, the OP said 71K miles with no problems. Personally, I have 182K miles on mine and the only emissions related part I needed to replace was an EGT sensor. YMMV. Some have not had as good of luck.
