ZZP Cruze/Sonic Tune

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 on the stock turbo, 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 will be adjusted based on what you keep. 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.

Excellent tuner!

This tune helped my little turbo reach its full potential! I only have a CAI and cat back exhaust on my car right now. This tune really let my car breathe. I can tell my turbo is pushing its full limits now, but the pull difference from 3,000 RPM-6,000 is pretty dramatic. Overall very satisfied!

Really brings the car to life

This is the best dollar for dollar mod you can do. After you get your perfomance parts installed the tune is a MUST! The tuner works with you 1 on 1 and dials your tune in just right. Best tuning service I've ever used

I worked with Tim who got the tune just right. What a difference! My Sonic is a monster now and has massive power compared to stock. The car seems to run a lot smoother now and I'm so happy I finally did this mod.
