Scavenging parts from Cruze Eco
 
Has anybody looked at scavenging parts from the Cruze Eco for a regular Cruze? Are they bolt-on replacements?

I'd be interested in a front air dam and maybe a transmission, eventually.

Would be nice to see how the Eco transmission would perform with the non-turbo engine.

Which? M6 or A6 model transmission? Only the A6 has unique SW-programming...M6 is just (well) a manual.

Also, the radiator shutter mechanism will ONLY work with the Eco-specific ECM computer with it's specific Eco-programming.

So that's a kinda pointless move from GM. OK, the lower pick rate for manuals back there would seem to not justify, but it wouldn't be so hard to have its gearing set to enhance the efficiency.

There might have some way to work around an alternative way to control it as a stand-alone unit.


After all, it seems to be more cost-effective to do the mods independently instead of trying to follow strictly the solutions implemented in the Eco.

I think the Eco gets different wheels. Dollar for dollar the trans would probably be the best mod. I think you would be better of just getting an Eco, than tring to piece one together

Where is the fun in that?

No way man. The Eco costs thousands more than my base model, but you can buy the air dam, etc for $25. 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Parts - GM Parts Department: Buy genuine GM auto parts & aftermarket accessories at wholesale prices.

I'll have to ask the techs if the parts will fit when I'm at the dealership again.

I would assume that they would bolt-on. Is your stock grille partially blocked off like the eco?

You can make an airdam and grilleblock for a $..

Historically, no GM FWD anything is geared for performance anyway. GM's typical idea of a performance transmission is to numerically raise the differential ratio of the econobox until first gear is useless and ship it out, not to actually deliver an optimized gear set. The Cruze Eco is not one of those cars.

The 1.8L, Eco and standard turbo all have different gear sets, amazingly... the Eco automatic is also tuned differently as far as shift points etc...

First:
3.82 - 1.8L
4.27 - 1.4T Eco
4.27 - 1.4T
4.58 - Auto
Second:
2.16 - 1.8L
2.16 - 1.4T Eco
2.53 - 1.4T
2.96 - Auto
Third:
1.47 - 1.8L
1.30 - 1.4T Eco
1.47 - 1.4T
1.91 - Auto
Fourth:
1.07 - 1.8L
0.96 - 1.4T Eco
1.07 - 1.4T
1.44 - Auto
Fifth:
0.87 - 1.8L
0.74 - 1.4T Eco
0.87 - 1.4T
1.00 - Auto
Sixth:
0.74 - 1.8L
0.61 - 1.4T Eco
0.74 - 1.4T
0.74 - Auto
Reverse:
3.54 - 1.8L
3.82 - 1.4T Eco
3.82 - 1.4T
2.94 - Auto
Final drive:
3.94 - 1.8L
3.83 - 1.4T Eco
3.83 - 1.4T
3.53 - Auto
