    Default SONIC turbo - E78?

    I know this has been discussed some and you are waiting on US to send you reads, and I will! But I am getting quite excited about the Sonic 1.4t. I have started a local car club to unite area Cruze and Sonic drivers and point them in the direction of our businesses (my dealer, EFILive, TSTune.com, etc...) I am hoping and thinking that the ECM will be the E78 as we are speculating, like on the identical engine sibling. I also hope (a lot) the eventually that T76 TCM will be supported, as it is already being tuned by others and they are reporting excellent improvements. So I wish to encourage you and remind you to support the Sonic (especially turbo) as much and as soon as possible !

    Your dealer does not have a turbo 1.4 yet? Is GM selling any of these or what?

    6-8 months, wow, that 'is' a delay, I wonder what has gone wrong?

    For tuning support please post your questions on this forum (or other auto forums).
    Sorry if I don't respond to your PM, don't take it personal.

    Nothing that a little AC line relocation and a Rotrex C30-74 supercharger can't resolve..

    Hello Ian,

    It is an E83 ... I was able to open the *.ctd with V8 ... got a similar message when I tried using V7.5 ... don't think the V7.5 support has rolled out yet.

    I have no current plans to work with these (engines are missing 4 cylinders !) ... just more of a gray matter exercise.


    Cheers,
    Taz
