Product Review: 2016--2018+ Chevrolet Malibu - 2.0L Turbo - Advantage

11 June 2018 - 03:30 PM | Kozybe

I just finished my tune and took my car for a spin and all I have to say is wow. Definitely $400 well spent. Pedal control is much more responsive, shifts better for power and there is a huge noticeable increase of power. If you own a Malibu with the 2.0 turbo engine you must get this tune. It’s so easy to install and it instantly transforms the car into a monster. Props to trifecta for coming out with such a nice product.

A Word About Manufacturer Warranty and Aftermarket Modifications

Apr 16 2018 04:03 PM | TRIFECTA Support in Articles

In this modern day and age, new vehicles are coming with longer and more comprehensive power train warranties. Most, if not all GM vehicles, for example, now come with a 5 year, 60,000 mile power train warranty which covers against manufacturer defects. E.g. if your engine has a failure that requires the replacement of the engine, the manufacturer will cover the cost and labor of doing so. The manufacturer's power train warranty coverage is a strong selling point, and it's terms have become a product differentiation across vehicle brands in various markets.

TRIFECTA: Test results of Racer X LUJ/LUV intake manifold
April, 2018

 

Introduction

 

In 2017, Racer X Fabrication (http://racerxfabrication.com/) brought to market an aftermarket intake manifold for the 1.4L Turbo MPFI engine (RPO: LUJ and LUV). They advertise it as being only compatible with the 2012+ Chevrolet Sonic, but in fact we determined it also fits the 2011 – 2016 Chevrolet Cruze / Chevrolet Cruze Limited without issue. We purchased one in early 2018 and tested it on our 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Limited with the RPO:LUV engine. This article discusses the manifold, and the test results versus the stock intake manifold.

TRIFECTA: Dual mode exhaust (bypass) valves on a Gen1 Cruze / Sonic?

Feb 14 2018 12:12 PM | TRIFECTA Support in Articles

With our recent unveiling of FPCM (fuel pump control module) / CCM (chassis control module) recalibration to support larger injectors on the 1.4T, another idea struck us. Could we also recalibrate the FPCM/CCM to allow the addition of dual mode exhaust valves to the Gen1 Chevrolet Cruze / Chevrolet Sonic? Maybe, actually.

TRIFECTA: Now serving 60 lb/hr fuel injectors for your 1.4T (LUJ/LUV)

Feb 09 2018 07:04 PM | TRIFECTA Support in Articles

Introduction

 

Now you can run the Siemens-Deka 60 lb/hr injectors on your Gen 1 Cruze / Gamma II with ZERO side effects!

 

Getting enough fuel into a tuned-up 1.4T Gen 1 Cruze or Gamma II has been a challenge about as long as people have been modifying them. The factory fuel injectors top out at about 26 lb/hr of flow, which is enough for a tune-only, on gasoline, but if you want to switch to E85, or a larger turbo, you're definitely going to need larger fuel injectors.
