Me take it down a notch? Lol. I haven't responded at all after that, and they shouldn't have been talking like that. ;) It cuts both ways, man.
If you read back, I said pretty much the same thing to them. Just trying to keep the peace is all.

New cam cover, fresh oil change, and putting in a new set of plugs today. Gonna try this thread chaser tool. Will report back on how this thread chaser works... was only a few bucks at the auto parts store.

Word. Same here. I just don't abide when it comes to trash talking because I can hand it right back, and I have been doing my best to do nothing more than to help and be a part of the community. If I wanted a flame war I'd go back to the honda tech forums. ha. :)

Made use of the fact it is beautiful out today to get one of five cars' changed over from the winter setup. Even if it does decide to snow again, it's not like we're going anywhere.

Thread chaser works great. Used some anti seize on the threads and spun it in and off a few times and cleaned the threads and the debris was trapped in the anti seize between the threads instead of inside the cylinder.

  • Installed ZZP TB spacer and Big 3 wiring kit. Ran vacuum line inside the car for boost gauge. Blacked out the front and rear bowties. ZZP pillar going in tomorrow.

Since it's not really going anywhere (aside from to the grocery store every week or two), it might as well be clean since it sits just outside the kitchen window and we look at it every day. Always nice to do the first wash and wax of the season, get all that winter "off", though it really wasn't all that dirty since whenever the last touchless wash it got.

Didn't do anything to it but stopped at my usual lookout spot on my way to work and snapped this sweet pic

Yesterday, I washed all three vehicles. Today, I'm (physically) paying for it. I did my truck first, then the Cruze (daughter helped, since she drives it the most), and then my wife's MB (son helped, while we discussed a homework report that he is working on). After my daughter and I washed, vacuumed the Cruze, we redid the front bow tie.

Post-wash, in garage digging for the leftover vinyl from the first time that we did bow ties.

Ripped my glove box back apart to see why the lamp was not still lit. I found that the LED lamp wire does not like to stay under the clips. I also put a new mud flap on to replace a busted one.

I downloaded the Trifecta tune into my '18 Premier and remarkably I no longer miss my 2.0L Regal quite so much.
Man I can't wait to get mine in. Was thinking of waiting until the powertrain warranty is up but I just want to get it now lol.

Therefore, I recommend you order the Pedal Commander forthwith; it is an electronic throttle controller that attaches between the throttle pedal and the ecm (and is therefore easily removable before a service visit). This device proportionately increases the amount of gasoline at all positions of the throttle. It is fully adjustable and in my opinion produces the same effect as a well-written tune. Installation is simplicity itself and in use it will astound you.

Just changed the oil the other day on my '13 cruze if that counts? She has 40,000 miles on her now. Still running great!!!

Nice and I thought my '13 with 57k had low miles.
I use my cruze mainly for road trips due to the great MPG. My 2003 S-10 with 161,000 on her is my work vehicle. That still runs great but living in the salt belt is taking it's toll on her.

2012 1.4L RS turbo 60,000+ manual
Installed:
-4H-TECH Short Shifter
-BNR Throttle Body Spacer
-Clutch Accumulator Bypass
-Forge BPV

Can Definitely feel the difference with the short shifter installed.
The clutch pedal feel when shifting from 1-2 is night and day. The Clutch Accumulator Bypass I absolutely recommend to anyone with a manual transmission. 100% worth the money.
As for the TB spacer I felt a noticeable difference in throttle response but nothing major. Mainly purchased for the PCV fix later on.
Forge BPV I bought for longevity to replace the plastic OEM part. This mod may have a slight significance in holding boost in conjunction with the TB Spacer for responsiveness but I'm not too sure!
Drove around for about 20 miles today and no issues :) will check back in a few months for another review.

Thinking about an intercooler from zzp or cx racing next
