I read that with 1.4 t and automatic if you go in manual mode the car goes into sport mode which actually adjust the tune and you get more boost also. Has anyone tested this or read this? I am looking at different things to do to mine depending what all I need to replace. I was thinking cams intake and exhaust if I end up replacing my head.

I’ve never heard that, but may be true. What’s your end goal? Sounds like you’re taking a big jump tearing into the engine.

Oh yes that Manual mode unleashes the hidden power of the Chevy CRUZE

I don’t really have an end goal. Right now it’s figuring out two things 1 why it overheated, 2 why it put 3 quarts of oil into my cooling system. I had enough time to do a flush today. Pushed out good heat right away, and temperature stayed normal and the oil level didn’t change. Next time it will be a run up to operating temp again then small test runs to see if anything changes.

How many miles are on your car? You should probably fix your head gasket problem before you try to make any more power.

No. Sport mode doesn’t even work that way. You really think GM would give people a button that makes expensive engine warranty work more likely to happen?
