Product Review: 2013+ Buick Encore - 1.4L Turbo

19 January 2016 - 11:56 AM | CanyonDave

I purchased this tune for my wife's 2015 AWD Encore. After installation I took the it for a test ride and immediately noticed a more responsive vehicle. Under full throttle the stock turbo engine had some turbo lag, and then the power would build slowly and you would accelerate. With the tune installed you mash the peddle, you now have a slight turbo lag and then power comes on strong, tires are on verge of loss of traction, and the engine pulls hard to red line. My wife drove it and was extr...

TRIFECTA: More out of your 2016--2017 Camaro V6

Jan 25 2017 05:22 PM | TRIFECTA Support in Articles

TRIFECTA was the first company to bring a comprehensive tuning product to market for your 6th generation Chevrolet Camaro, introducing its 2016 Chevrolet Camaro V6 (LGX) product in mid 2016. We're pleased to announce that we're wrapping up our 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V6 (LGX) product as well!

There's been a lot of talk out there lately about the new T87A transmission control module (TCM) used in the 8 speed automatic transmission-equipped vehicles for 2017. Rigorous security protocols are requiring TCMs to be shipped somewhere and “unlocked” before they can be tuned. Defying the limitations others are subject to, we're also pleased to announce that we are able to offer transmission flashing without having to remove the module from the vehicle and “unlock” it!

TRIFECTA: We love the Colorado/Canyon. We love the 2017 model even more.

The 2015-2016 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon has quickly become one of GM's best-selling vehicles in recent times and has garnered the coveted Motor Trend Truck of the Year award for both 2015 and 2016. However, the truck has also attracted some fairly serious complaints about its drivability, particularly in the area of the transmission shift strategy (6 speed automatic), to the extent that GM has issued several factory software updates to improve it. Fortunately, TRIFECTA's performance calibration for the 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon solves that problem.

TRIFECTA: The 2.0L Turbo 300HP Cruze

TRIFECTA: The 2.0L Turbo 300HP Cruze


For as long as we've been in the business of tuning Chevrolet Cruze with the 1.4L Turbo, someone out there (incuding us, on one occasion or another) has daydreamed about putting a 2.0L turbo engine in the Cruze. Let's be honest. The Cruze 1.4T's performance is OK (in a five way shoot out against its competitors it actually had the quickest 0-60 MPH time). With a calibration, it gets MUCH better. It's still not FAST, though. However, stuff a 2.0T engine in there, and with almost 50% more displacement over the 1.4T, it would be an impressive machine.

An engine swap would be interesting, to be sure, but we're going to recommend something even bolder – if you want to go fast, instead of the Cruze, choose the Malibu. Yes, that's right, we said it. Instead of buying a Cruze, buy a Malibu. This might sound like madness, but by the end of this writing, you might feel differently about it. First, let's talk about an engine swap scenario.
