Default 2017 Fitments?

Hey all, got my 2017 Premium manual transmission Hatch and been reading a lot to get acclimated here. There doesn't seem to be much info for the 2017's yet. So....

Gonna be sunny today and I'll upload some pics. Anything specific you want to see? Can't really get under the car but I can get my ramps out possibly.

I'm interested in fitments for downpipe, catback, BOV, mounts, and tuning (for after the warranty expires, of course). Thanks!

The 2017 is really just an MCE. The interior and some exterior parts are new. I do believe the turbo engine is the same... GUYS??

We've vendors here, they'll have tunes for the 17's very soon. I don't think they made any changes to systems for catbacks, MAYBE the BOV, the mounts should be the same too...

There was supposed to be an ALL new Sonic around this time, but small cars are not selling here very well.. (gas is cheap)...

The best seller is the F-150... why so many trucks, I'll never know!

Why
Because murica
Why the f-150?
Because it's the cheapest truck you can buy and they inflate their numbers with fleet vehicles and commercial vehicles

I was looking at a 2017 in the dealership and the salesperson claimed it was an all-new engine for 2017. I took a hard look at the entire engine bay and all that looked new was an extension was added to the oil filler.

I believe the engine is also direct injection?

Default DLIS Fuse on 2017 Sonic LT

Could someone confirm if the 2017 Sonic non-RS models have the DLIS fuse by physically checking (don't depend on the manual).

The 2017 Sonic RS models don't - is that because it is a RS, or because it is a 2017.

A local RV dealer says they were unable to set up a 2017 Sonic (non-RS) for dinghy towing as there was no DLIS fuse present, and the operator manual requires pulling the DLIS fuse for flat towing.

Thanks

Bruce

I don't think anyone answered your questions. Downpipe looks the same too me. the lower mount looks the same but the upper looks slightly different. Might just be mounting hardware. Idk about the BOV since I didn't see a picture for it. If you're relatively thin you can slide under from behind the car and take a look at the catback or at least part of it. Compare it with pictures from the internet.
