Ryan Perez’s 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback - Customer Spotlight
When someone mentions that they drive a modified Chevy, a person may think that they are talking about a Camaro, Corvette, Nova, or perhaps even a Vega. For Ryan Perez however, his modified Chevy is a step from the beaten path. He is, in fact, the proud owner of a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze RS Hatchback. Having previously owned a 2014 Cruze, Ryan had developed a fondness for these cars. It was this fondness that ultimately drove him to the Cruze RS Hatchback that he drives today.
Once the keys were in his hands, Ryan knew that things just couldn’t stay stock. While modifying a Chevy Cruze may seem out-of-the-norm to some, Perez wanted to use this car as a platform to build something clean, subtle, and different. The first thing to go was the factory muffler. Ryan replaced the OEM can with a Flowmaster Force II Axle-back exhaust system, which utilizes mandrel bent 409s stainless steel tubing and an Outlaw race muffler. After the Axle-back install was complete, Perez took the Cruze to his local sponsor, DMC Exhaustwerks, to step the volume level up another notch by removing the stock resonator. With this new setup, the car now delivers that deep growl that Ryan was looking for.
With the Cruze’s new soundtrack checked off the list, Ryan felt that it only made sense to address the vehicle’s aesthetics. The roof was wrapped in a gloss black vinyl to give a glass-like contrast to the white paint. Ryan also partnered with one of his other sponsors, Aeroflow Dynamics, to develop a custom splitter that provides the Chevy with a much more assertive presence. To tie all the appearance enhancements together, Ryan turned to BC Racing for a set of multi-adjustable coilovers to give his Cruze the perfect stance and improve the car’s handling abilities. The end result? A new and refreshing take on the term, “Cool Chevy.” If you’d like to see more of Ryan’s build, be sure to follow him on Instagram: @crzehatch24.
