The ZZP 1.4 turbo PCM brings the performance of your car to a whole new level.  This is not a mail order tune, each ZZP tune is remotely tuned based on each customers car, mods, and octane.  This is the best tune available in the market.  We go through and rework dozens of tables based on countless dyno tuning with our own vehicles.  We own 3 Sonics and a Cruze enabling us to dial in our tuning better than any other company in this market.  Air Fuel ratios are optimized, boost is increased, timing is remapped, rev limiter is raised, and KR recovery is optimized.  We do most of our work in torque management where these vehicles greatly limit performance and horsepower. By altering these tables, we unlock the full potential of the engine.  We will start the boost around 16psi, and the boost will end up between 15 and 19 psi based on scans from you, the customer.  There are some tunes, that have users seeing spikes as high as 21+ psi, but we can assure you, they are not making more power, the vehicle is not safe on pump gas and the boost fades with RPM. O2 codes are modified so that you do not set check engine lights when running our exhaust products.  Octane: Yes, some GM techs have said that you can run 87 octane in the 1.4 liter turbo, this is not true.  We DO NOT recommend this, the car will have a lot of KR. ("Knock Retard" or more commonly known as spark knock)  ...By special request we have done specific tunes that make it safe to run lower octane, but performance will not be the same as running premium. 

Gains of this tune paired with our intake are larger than anything else in the market. The best part about buying a ZZP tune is the support and fast responses you get. No one else comes close when it comes to expertise and speed of response.

Core Charge: Our PCM flash requires a HPTuners programming interface and cable which we supply with instructions. Upon returning this cable, you are refunded the core charge (deposit). Additionally a Windows based laptop is required. you can use your own or borrow one from us. The advantage of using ours is that it is pre-configured with scanning software and tools to help us assist you if you have any questions or custom tuning requirements. If you choose to keep the tuning interface and/or the laptop, that's fine. That core charge in that case will not be refunded. Core charges are based on 10 days and there will be additional charges if cables or laptops are kept for longer periods. After 30 days, core charges convert to purchases.  If you would like to watch a video to see how remote tunes work.  Click here.

Vanderhall Venice Tune/down pipe

Kyle & the entire shop done a great job, having a Vanderhall Venice 3 wheel auto-cycle (engine is a 1.4 Cruz/Sonic) most shops are reluctant on doing a tune. Kyle stated that ZZ performance tune Cruz/Sonic all the time but needed to see the Vanderhall first. I stated that I wanted more than just a tune, I wanted a beast!!! Not only did I gain 30 WHP, we have come up with a plan for a new intake & turbo upgrade. I highly recommend ZZ performance they don't make empty promises very upfront. Looking forward to the spring!!!! MR

Before ZZP, the car was controlled by the epa and it ducked up its own exhaust and ran bad and got bad gas mileage, everything was awful. . . Then I got an email from Turbo Tim the Cruze whisperer! Suddenly the car is the best it’s ever been it can be stomped on and still gets more gas mileage than factory not to mention it can put you in your seat, which is something unexpected of a 1.4l. The car is running at maximum performance and maximum gas mileage and will easily last a million miles! The appreciation for the tune grows more and more with every trip! Enough good cannot be said but I’ll wrap this up by saying the best part about the tune is it’s one and done! You don’t need to carry around some flash tool with 5 different tunes that harm your engine, the ZZP tuning is absolute perfection! I was not paid for this stellar review but I should be haha!

Working on my cal

So far, so good! Turbo Tim has been awesometo deal with. Patient and knowledgeable. Once Sonic Boom (her official name) gets all the rest of the ZZP supplied parts installed... she will be a real weapon!

Best bang for the buck

Be sure to watch the youtube ZZP Tune video first. Fast responses from Turbo Tim on my tune. Car is so much more fun to drive. Trans shifts the way it should, not sliding into each gear. At top of my normal highway on ramp I was doing 80 after the DP and tune, normally I was just over 65. This car now flies if I want it too, but still drives normal if my foot is out of it.
