ZZP 1.4 Turbo Tune

Electronics - 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.

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

If you are having knock (KR) related problems during your remote tuning sessions we recommend using Boostane. Boostane is a safe octane booster that actually works, unlike the generic "octane boosters" found at your local auto parts stores. We have noticed large spikes in fuel inconsistency since the beginning of the pandemic, so sometimes it's hard to point out if there's an issue with the car being knock limited or just the quality of fuel. While tuning if you add Boostane and notice the KR subside, then your problem lies in your fuel. If you add Boostane and it has no noticeable effect on KR, then it is likely that your car has a mechanical issue that is causing and/or being sensed as knock.

There's a tune.....and then there's a ZZP tune.

I've chipped cars before, and this time I decided to go with the ZZP tune. I was not disappointed with this decision in any way. Turbo Tim was phenomenal. Very thorough and worked with me until I was satisfied. Thank you ZZP

This is a must buy. This service, experience, and the knowledge you pay for is all worth it. I bought this thinking it would never get done because of my work hours but the team a ZZP work with you and these guys killed it my car is just a beast. Thanks to Tim and everyone at ZZP I will continue to buy parts from here.

Go beyond what other tuners do!

It was great, I worked with Tim for tuning my 2011 Cruze Eco for their V3 turbo and 42# injectors... I sent him several 20 minute scans and I got several revisions of ECM file back. He was very quick to get them back to me and my the car is an absolute blast to drive now that it’s tuned for all my ZZP mods. Definitely worth the money!

Totally different car !

Tim obviously knows what he is doing. Very pleasant to work with. Well worth the money. My Cruze runs like it was meant to. Highly recommend. Will be purchasing tune for my Silverado next.

Unlocked True Potential of my Sonic

Before the computer tune I installed the ZZP CAI and Turbo Back Exhaust which I notice some gains and a great sound. After just the initial file my car became so much more and the gains were extremely noticeable! Still working on the file since new injectors and a turbo are getting put in but can safely say this is the most recommend upgrade to the car. Tim has been awesome working with me to make sure my car is running its best once its all said and done.
