    Sonic from SD

    Post by Thaifight-R on Mon May 07, 2012 4:54 pm

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Andrew,and I drive a '12 Chevy Sonic Turbo.
    Only mods on it right now are:
    Trifecta Tune (23 psi of boost w/ 91 octane)
    B&G lowering springs
    2.5" BadlanzHPE Electric Exhaust Cutout

    My plan right now is to keep it a sleeper, but we'll see how that goes... lol (I already have an overheating '89 Celica GTS that I plan on "Stancing" for lulz since I can't drive it anywhere. Razz)

    Here's how my Sonic sits at the moment:




    Thanks for looking and have a nice day! Smile

    Welcome. What are the internals like on those 1.4 pushing 23lbs is sketchy if they're not forged.

    Thanks for the welcomes! Smile

    Yes, it's a 1.4L.
    I am from San Diego. Been here all my life. Razz lol

    The Sonic has the same engine as the turbo Cruze's so with this in mind, and looking at the following link,
    http://www.media.gm.com/content/media/us/en/news/news_detail.brand_chevrolet.html/content/Pages/news/us/en/2010/July/0725_cruze/0725_cruze_powertrain

    the Sonic comes with forged rods.

    I've been driving around with the Trifecta Tune for about 3500 miles now, and have yet to have a problem. Smile I hope it stays that way... lol

    If anything you're taking miles away from the overall life of the motor which isn't a big deal. Vince does tune on the safe side so as long as you keep an eye on things you should be fine.
