Found this just now, looks like someone is upgrading the turbo on their ST woot. According to the link to the Mazda site the car is running and they'll be tuning it shortly.

There's been one guy who has a larger turbo on the 1.4 but the engine isn't in a Sonic or Cruze. I believe it's in a specialty vehicle used for auto-x.

IIRC turbotechracing or some other company already offer a different manifold or whatever to use a different turbo. I haven't looked into it much because I don't have plans for that.

I hate that you can't edit posts.

A guy with a Cruze just supposedly made 216/238 with a Trifecta tune. He's been playing with the wastegate and raising the rev limiter though. I have a feeling his engine won't last long though.

Was going to go to the auto show today, but decided to go Friday as the gf's day off switched. Also getting a Sonic RS for a test drive on Friday! Too bad is auto.
