So, I'm planning on adding turbo and getting tuned threw BNR I see injectors for gen 1, but not gen 2. Was wondering if they was compatible or if maybe theres some out for the gen 2 already that I haven't seen? I have a 2018 LS cruze

Probably not compatible. The 2 is DI. The 1 isn't.

According to this article. The 2 has the new ecotech engine.

Gen 2 has only 1 engine in all models. 1.4 turbo with direct injection. Turbo bolts directly to head with no exhaust manifold. None of these parts will interchange from Gen 1 to Gen 2.

It's my understanding the injectors are not the limiting factor on an engine with the stock turbo.

One problem with DI engines is fuel spray on the cylinder walls, which would get worse with bigger injector nozzles.

I'd talk to [email protected] and see what he can do with the stock injectors, or if he can recommend other injectors (maybe stock injectors from a higher output engine) if you need them to keep up with the air from the bigger turbo.
