1.4 Turbo

The Cruze with its 1.4L turbocharged engine, I think is going to be quite nifty when improving the performance of the engine.. They say its anywhere between 120-140 HP with 148lb-ft of torque and that the Non Turbocharged 1.4 will have about 100 HP.

With having a 1.4 the Cruze is getting an amazing 40+MPG

So what do you think the gain will be when dropping in a larger turbo>?

It won't be about upgrading the turbo...it'll be about finding when the stock turbo begins to max out...and at what point you'll need a Front Mount Intercooler to help keep temps down and knock...and/or methanol injection or convert it to E85. There are lots of factors in turbo cars...but I know someone will be testing out the strength of the bottom end eventually...probably ZZPerformance first. I bet they put down 130 or so to the tire stock...and throw a turbo back on there with a tune and a way to cool it and turn up the boost...I don't see 200 FWHP out of the question with enough fueling.

40mpg is EPA estimated - it'll likely get much higher than that.

And you get 40 calculated or on your DIC?

55mpg had to have been on the DIC...unless you're calculating wrong...
