Hey Cruze fans, just wanted to know where can i find an adaptor for the Intake temperature sensor ( the one close to the throttlebody)
im considering dooing my own intercooler kit i cant seem to find these sensor adaptors.
If I was you I would look into the cx racing one I believe ebay less than $400 & it comes w/ a cold air kit too. if you don't want the cold air sell it cheaper than they sell there about $90. I would go this way cheaper & made for this car
Eleven 90 degree turns from the air inlet to the intake manifold, each 90* turn offers the same restriction as about 25' of straight pipe. Have to get rid of those curves.
Increasing the diameter of the pipe may help a little, but the greatest restriction is in the throttle body itself. This is a series air flow circuit.
Just saying, you may spend a lot of time and money and really won't experience much if any improvement. But it is your time and money.
One major limitation is the use of unleaded gas that requires exhaust gas recirculation to keep your exhaust valves from turning to dust. Switching to water injection would require a major design of the engine.
Getting 1.6 HP per CID is no easy task, most of this aftermarket stuff is BS, airflow starts at the inlet of the air cleaner and ends at the exhaust pipe. So everything between the inlet and outlet has to be changed. Not just a little of this or that.
