I understand. I am now curious too.Well my thought process between a 1.4t acceleration video and the diesel video I'd like to see is that the diesel, especially with a tune, has far more torque, and in turn more power during acceleration. To maintain top speed, or something of that nature the 1.4t would be a good comparison with them having similar hp numbers with tunes.
Someone with these tunes has to have a cell phone with video and an on ramp for us, no?
I appreciate you suggesting that one.
Here was me messing around a couple days ago. No launch trickery, tc was on. Ignore the first second, and there is your acceleration video. It's pointed at a little OBDII scanner, hard to read.
Not very happy. I'm working on a more... Intricate tune. Which will hopefully see low 14s at the 1/4 mile, 100% stock.
I'd be willing to agree.While I appreciate your optimism there that car is not going to see 14's on a stock configuration plus tune.
Is it possible stock? Yeah. But doing it without breaking things is the hard part. There's no real easy way to extract every last HP the stock injectors and turbo will allow. It's especially difficult for the Cruze because it was never really designed for this, so pretty much every department needs to be changed beyond simply asking for more fuel like the Fleece and Trifecta tunes probably do.I'd be willing to agree.
My Cobalt runs low 14s (all of those runs were on 195-series all-seasons, so traction was non-existent), and it's pushing around 300 HP and similar torque (at the crank), and weighs between 2800 and 2900 lbs...the Cruze diesel is a good 500+ lbs more...you're talking significantly more power required to hit the same times. I'm not even sure if the stock turbo won't be out of breath before then...
Now...an upgraded turbo...different story...
