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.  Prepaid labels are only included with our domestic shipments.  If you would like to watch a video to see how remote tunes work.  Click here.

Hp tuner it's hard to do

Watching their video they don't show you how to punching information on the laptop how to register your tune to your car to your name to your vent number nothing like that how you supposed to do it when they don't show you what you have to do step by step they talk to they talk to you like you're talking to another programmer that's ******** I love the performance parts I will buy more that is it they should have more places work with them or tell you to go to a closer shop to have it tuned and they should know any shops that does the same tuning name like hptuners they should send you to the closest one if you can't do it yourself.

AMAZING!

My tuner was tim and it has been an amazing experience from the beginning. My car is a completely different animal now its amazing. Its amazing how much these cars are limited in power. Tim is awesome and has put up with all my questions and is always fast to respond. I cant wait to get more mods added and to see what more my car has in store!

Happy with ZZP

Not only did I have a good tuning experience, anything I have purchased from here has been quality, with great shipping. Big thanks to Tim even though it was the day after Christmas he was still reading my logs and got me proper within a day or two.

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
