TestimonialsI am very happy with my advantage tune, it really wakes the car up. The throttle feels much more responsive under all conditions and it pulls so much better on the highway with…Tune came out great easy to install easily feel the difference the car feels more freeWell it's been 2 years with the tune. 1 year on e85, haven't had 1 problem. Just got back from a 800 mile trip. Had to switch back to 93 mid trip. Because I couldn't find e85. …My Sky Redline was quick but now, it's scary quick. Easy installation, too. Amazing how these microprocessors on wheels can be tuned by zeros and ones.
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
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.
Since the Cruze debuted almost 8 years ago in North America, it's been every Cruze enthusiast's dream to swap a larger engine into one. We kept waiting and waiting for Chevrolet to build a proper Cruze SS, to no avail. Today, TRIFECTA is proud to announce the dream of a car worthy of being called a Cruze SS, has become reality.
Introducing one of our latest projects. We took a brand new stock 1.4T turbocharger, upgraded the bearings, added what we believe to be the largest compressor upgrade yet (55mm), rebalanced the assembly, and topped it off with a Forge wastegate actuator!
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.
