In this modern day and age, new vehicles are coming with longer and more comprehensive power train warranties. Most, if not all GM vehicles, for example, now come with a 5 year, 60,000 mile power train warranty which covers against manufacturer defects. E.g. if your engine has a failure that requires the replacement of the engine, the manufacturer will cover the cost and labor of doing so. The manufacturer's power train warranty coverage is a strong selling point, and it's terms have become a product differentiation across vehicle brands in various markets.
TRIFECTA: Test results of Racer X LUJ/LUV intake manifold
In 2017, Racer X Fabrication (http://racerxfabrication.com/) brought to market an aftermarket intake manifold for the 1.4L Turbo MPFI engine (RPO: LUJ and LUV). They advertise it as being only compatible with the 2012+ Chevrolet Sonic, but in fact we determined it also fits the 2011 – 2016 Chevrolet Cruze / Chevrolet Cruze Limited without issue. We purchased one in early 2018 and tested it on our 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Limited with the RPO:LUV engine. This article discusses the manifold, and the test results versus the stock intake manifold.
Since the Cruze debuted almost 8 years ago in North America, it's been every Cruze enthusiast's dream to swap a larger engine into one. We kept waiting and waiting for Chevrolet to build a proper Cruze SS, to no avail. Today, TRIFECTA is proud to announce the dream of a car worthy of being called a Cruze SS, has become reality.
Introducing one of our latest projects. We took a brand new stock 1.4T turbocharger, upgraded the bearings, added what we believe to be the largest compressor upgrade yet (55mm), rebalanced the assembly, and topped it off with a Forge wastegate actuator!
