ZZP Sonic/Cruze Stage 1 Kit

This is a preprepared batch of mods for your Cruze or Sonic. This is our Stage 1 kit, so it will include a cold air intake, o2 housing/downpipe, and a tune. You can purchase more mods later that will also compliment these upgrades or purchase our Stage 2 kit which comes with everything listed here and next batch of recommended upgrades. The Stage 1 kit will bolt on around 30-40 hp/ft lbs of torque. We always recommend running premium 91+ octane, stock or with our upgrades.  The tune that is included is not a "mail order tune" this is a full remote tune. This means each customers car is specifically tuned for their mods, their fuel, etc. 


How PCM is flashed:

Our PCM flash requires a HPTuners programming interface which we can supply with instructions. Upon returning the interface, you are refunded the core charge (deposit).

Additionally a Windows based laptop is required. you can use your own or rent 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. The 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. Note: Prepaid return labels for interface/laptop rentals are only included with domestic shipments.

Components do not fit Gen2 Cruze.  However we do offer a tune for the Gen2 Cruze.

If using your own laptop for remote tuning, download the latest stable HPTuners VCM Suite here.

2012 Cruze Stage I

The stage 1 kit is working great with the other mods I have added, especially with Turbo Tim's patience during the tune. Do to work & family commitments I bought the interface as I knew I wouldn't have time to turn the files around as fast as the interface & laptop rental required. Tim has been very patient and responds quickly when I do get files to him. The downpipe fit perfectly and mated to the ZZP spun cat mid-pipe with no issues. It tucks up under the car nicely and sounds great. I did have to file the opening for the MAF sensor as the mount plate wasn't positioned quite right over the hole in the aluminium inlet tube. I sent that feedback to ZZP. Regarding the inlet cover, a bit more clearance to the headlight adjustment screws would be helpful as the cover mounts with one of the headlight mount screws so taking the headlight loose to adjust it doesn't make much sense. Finally, the seal where the inlet tube goes into the inlet cover has the seam on the top where it is very obvious. If the seam were on the bottom it would be hidden by the inlet tube once it was installed. This would make the entire package look much cleaner. Still a 5 star item in my opinion.
