Nope... been kinda out of the scene for a grip. There was a ton of clubs back in the early 2000's up here, not sure about currently. I'd by a shirt that had a turbo Cruze
I hear that! I haven't been part of a scene since the release of the first Fast and Furious, then there was a huge police raid. Lucky I wasn't out that night. lolNope... been kinda out of the scene for a grip. There was a ton of clubs back in the early 2000's up here, not sure about currently.

Give it some time. There's only so many 90's and 2000's cars, before you know it the wrecking yards, which they already are, will be filled with 2010 cars. The very undesirable 1.8, because it's NA, will be plentiful. Well, given someone can show some power potential... Cough... ZZP...BNR... wanna sponsor an ignition system...If Mantapart was still around, I bet they would have all sorts of stuff these motors. Webcams is super reputable, cant go wrong... still could be cheaper if you could find an OEM with desirable specs to drop in.
I agree x2. Limiting factor will be the intake, throttle body, and my log style manifold. It'll be fun to see what it can do with some cheap DIY parts and some home porting. That cam cost though might break the budget build aspect lol.Tons of cobalts and ions in there now...I have no doubt you can crack 300 hp pretty readily given everything your doing. 160hp/l... is very doable these days...
This is true! I’m thinking while the engine is off at the machine shop, about making an equal length manifold and an intake. I’m just wondering if the ECU will freak out without the tps and the open / closed manifold runner 🤔You made an exhaust manifold... make an intake use a drive by wire tb from say... a v6....or bore out another 1.8l tb a few mm and make a new butterfly.
Nice! Thank you for sharing that. I'm going to give this a whirl.have you considered this:
Hey everyone, this will be a work in progress/diary DIY. I will keep editing this first post until conclusion. I typically do my big forum posts likewww.sonicownersforum.com
for an ignition?
Thanks, I really appreciate it. Definitely something to consider. I'm going to get this thing back together with the stock intake and throttle body. Get things running well, hit the dyno, then work on upgrading the manifold / throttle body setup.Just leave the motor for the tb runner installed but hanging... see what all other vehicles the tps is used in.
Cancel that.... it appears the drive by wire tb have built in tps that does not appear servicable.... I haven't had to deal with them before.
Depending on the number of pins on the tps circuits and the total maximum resistance range of the tps wipers. I would assume that gm would mostly use the same control circuit and motors to keep costs due to variation to a minimum. The tb may not be a big issue the bore for the AC delco replacement is listed @2.321" (58.95mm). That's pretty big given the displacement of the motor. The old twin cam 2.4l had 52mm tb and easily made close 300 on less than 10lbs. I'm guessing it is not really going to be a restriction until you get close to 350hp or better.
Nice work! I appreciate it! Had I read this before I made a purchase this morning, I would have taken you up on that. I placed an order for 8 cheap Chinese coil and going to give this a try. How's the car run with this setup?here is a couple of pics of this setup on my 1.4 i built an extra harness and i have 4 extra wires that you are welcome to if you want them.
Nice! I went ahead and purchased some LS1 coils, the wiring harness, plug... just need to order the pins, seals, some wire, and make a bracket. That'll come later once I get the car back together.It runs well. I've only had it for about 7k miles and so far no issues. I'm not running enough boost to really know if it is making a difference. The ease and availability of swapping these out for troubleshooting makes it worth while.
I tried running it without tuning and it will idle and rev to about 3k rpm. After 3k rpm it starts to miss
