I found this Injen piping for the cobalt ss. Will it fit on the Cruze?
It can be modified to fit for the cold side. A guy from Gen2 Cruze Owners FB group just did a decent write-up on it. I've currently got the pipes and waiting on couplers and hardware. I need very badly to obtain an electric saw.

Looks like he did a good job on it. I just ordered mine and some couplers.

I just completed my DIY intercooler Upper pipes for 2016+ Gen2 Cruze.
No one has it available, so i did it myself.

I currently own a Cobalt SS and my wife has a Gen 2 Cruze Sedan Manual Shift. The ZZP upper and lower pipes on my Cobalt SS were measured and saw that it was close and angles were very similar.
I emailed ZZP and asked if they had plans for the Cruze. They said they had no plans.

I did notice that the upper pipes on the Cruze are the Cold Side air. Yet on the Cobalt these same pipes would be the Hot Pipes. At any rate, without a BOV connected, they pretty much look identical. the only difference is the throttle body on the cruze is a 2 inch opening. The same goes for the exit on the intercooler. This is why i had to find a 2 inch to 2.5 inch silicone elbow which I purchased off of eBay.
I found some Hahn Cobalt pipes someone was selling and started the project yesterday (Sunday).

Before this mod: The Cruze has been Trifecta Tuned for the past couple months. Other than that, it is still stock.

Seat of the pants Result? The first gear lag in my wife's Cruze is almost gone. Not 100 percent, but 85-90 percent better. The pull to 3500 RPMs feels good. I can also hear the turbo. I have never heard it before.

Time from start to finish 3 hours due to cutting and re-cutting to make it fit.
Cobalt Pipes are longer and needed to be cut shorter. The 90 elbow pipes had to be cut down shorter also.
But other than that, it fit perfectly.


Ingredients:
1. Cobalt SS Upper Hot pipes from ZZPerformance or Hahn.
2. 2" to 2.5" 90 degree silicone elbow pipes x 2 <----- You need two of them Bought off of eBay.
