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!
With our recent unveiling of FPCM (fuel pump control module) / CCM (chassis control module) recalibration to support larger injectors on the 1.4T, another idea struck us. Could we also recalibrate the FPCM/CCM to allow the addition of dual mode exhaust valves to the Gen1 Chevrolet Cruze / Chevrolet Sonic? Maybe, actually.
Now you can run the Siemens-Deka 60 lb/hr injectors on your Gen 1 Cruze / Gamma II with ZERO side effects!
Getting enough fuel into a tuned-up 1.4T Gen 1 Cruze or Gamma II has been a challenge about as long as people have been modifying them. The factory fuel injectors top out at about 26 lb/hr of flow, which is enough for a tune-only, on gasoline, but if you want to switch to E85, or a larger turbo, you're definitely going to need larger fuel injectors.
