  2. Charge pipe connection to intake manifold LE2 and LUJ/LUV Throttle Body The harness connectors are also different between the two units. Both sport 6 pins, but the LE2 throttle body utilizes a flat connector, whereas the LUJ/LUV throttle body utilizes a rectangular connector. Harness Connectors (LE2 Left, LUJ/LUV Right) Aside from the obvious physical differences, we can't actually see the most stunning difference of all. One of the changes GM has incorporated in recent years is the use of a more-reliable one-way serial data protocol (SAE-J2716 Single Edge Nibble Transmission "SENT" protocol) to digitally transmit the position of the redundant throttle position sensors (TPS) 1 and 2 back to the engine control module (ECM). In contrast, the LUJ/LUV uses 5 volt referenced analog/resistive throttle position sensors 1 and 2 to report the position of the throttle blade back to the ECM. Why switch to SENT? There are many reasons, not the least of which is the SENT protocol defines a checksum scheme that allows the ECM to verify the accuracy of the information being sent from the throttle body. Failures in "drive by wire" throttle control schemes (such as are used on both the LE2 and the LUJ/LUV) are a constant worry and concern of auto manufacturers as they could lead to uncontrolled wide-open-throttle conditions. The predecessor to SENT has redundancy built in by providing two sensors that report opposite voltages, allowing the ECM to perform some level of plausibility checks, but in the event that both sensors are incorrectly reporting the throttle position (but correctly reporting their opposing voltages), the ECM may not be able to detect a throttle control error. SENT helps to alleviate some of these scenarios. It's an exciting time for automotive technology! Stay tuned as TRIFECTA continues to shed light on emerging automotive technologies!

  4. Small Gasoline Engine (SGE) SGE family engines range in displacement from 1.0L (three cylinder) to 1.5L. All use a common bore size of 74mm, and there are three stroke configurations available - 77.4mm, 81.3mm, and 86.6mm (and as such, all engines are considered "undersquare" where the stroke is longer than the bore size). At the time of writing there were four SGE engines either in use or scheduled to be in use in the United States: RPO: LV7 - 1.4L naturally aspirated, multi point fuel injected (MPFI). Used in the 2016+ Chevrolet Spark, making 98HP and 94 lb-ft torque. Bore/stroke is 74mm/81.3mm. RPO: LE2 - 1.4L turbocharged, spark ignited direct injected (SIDI). Used in the 2016+ "gen II" Chevrolet Cruze, and the 2016+ Buick Encore Sport Touring Edition, making 153HP and 177 lb-ft torque. Bore/stroke is 74mm/81.3mm. RPO: L3A - 1.5L naturally aspirated, spark ignited direct injected (SIDI). Used in the 2017+ "gen II" Chevrolet Volt, making 100HP and 103 lb-ft torque. Bore/stroke is 74mm/86.6mm. RPO: LFV - 1.5L turbocharged, spark ignited direct injected (SIDI). Used in the 2016+ Chevrolet Malibu, making 163HP and 184 lb-ft torque. Bore/stroke is 74mm/86.6mm. The SGE family is slated to replace three different, older GM engine families, S-TEC, Family 0, and Family 1. Comparison of LE2 to the LUJ/LUV (Family 0, outgoing Cruze turbo engine) When just looking at the numbers, it might be simple to conclude the LE2 is simply a direct-injected variant of the LUJ/LUV, but that's not really the case at all. The LE2 is a clean-sheet redesign, and, while it shares some characteristics with the LUJ/LUV, there's actually more different about it, than similar. In fact, even the bore and stroke are different! While both are technically called "1.4L" displacement engines, in reality the LE2 is slightly larger than the LUJ/LUV. The LE2 displaces 1399cc, and the LUJ/LUV displaces 1364cc. The LE2 uses a 74mm bore with an 81.3mm stroke, and the LUJ/LUV uses a 72.5mm bore with an 82.6mm stroke (making the LE2 closer to "square" than the LUJ/LUV). Moving on to the engine block, the LE2 uses an all-aluminum engine block whereas the LUJ/LUV uses a cast iron engine block. The LE2 uses a forged steel crankshaft whereas the LUJ/LUV is not forged. The piston wrist pins are fully floating in the LE2, in contrast, the wrist pin is pressed into the connecting rod with the LUJ/LUV. Both use an aluminum cylinder head, with four valves per cylinder, actuated by camshafts located in the cylinder head (DOHC). Both engines utilize independent variable valve timing (VVT) on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. Covering the camshafts on the LE2 is an aluminum valve cover which provides superior valve train noise suppression, whereas the LUJ/LUV uses a composite valve cover with integrated PCV assembly (which is prone to failure on earlier LUJ/LUV engines). Noise suppression was an important goal of the SGE design, and one drive of the 2016+ "gen II" Chevrolet Cruze showcases the work GM did in this area. The direct-injectors, which are normally quite loud are isolated from the valve cover using bushings, and underneath the engine cover is a large piece of noise-suppressing foam. One feature that's trickled down from the modern GM V6 (high feature V6) family into the SGE family is the integrated exhaust manifold. Put another way, there is NO separate exhaust manifold on the LE2, just one exhaust "port" in the cylinder head. This allows extremely close coupling of either a turbocharger, or a catalytic converter to the cylinder head for optimum performance and lower emissions. Because of the lighter materials and integrated engine design, the LE2 weighs in at a whopping 44 pounds less than the LUJ/LUV. On the fueling side, the LE2 uses spark ignited direct injection (SIDI) and the LUJ/LUV uses multi point fuel injection (MPFI). As such, the LE2 uses a much different piston design (featuring a toroidal / ovoidal shaped combustion cavity in the piston head for optimized SIDI operation). Because the LE2 uses SIDI, it borrows technology traditionally found in diesel engines. The LE2 features a common rail for the injectors, and a mechanically driven (by the intake camshaft) high pressure fuel pump complete with a high pressure rail pressure sensor. On the LE2, each cylinder's injector is located in the cylinder head, adjacent to the spark plug, in the valley between the two camshafts. LE2 Direct Injector On the LUJ/LUV, being the engine is MPFI, each fuel injector is located in the intake manifold, just before the intake valve, serviced by a ECU-controlled, variable (low) pressure fuel pump (the LE2 also features an ECU-controlled variable low pressure fuel pump to feed the mechanical high pressure pump). LUJ/LUV MPFI rail and injectors We also find some differences in the ignition system. The LE2 features a per-cylinder, independent "coil on plug" ignition system, with the spark plugs located at an angle in the cylinder head, again an optimization for the SIDI fuel system. In contrast, the LUJ/LUV features a single "coil pack" which houses all four ignition coils (also a common failure point on this engine). The LUJ/LUV spark plugs are not angled. LE2 Angled Spark Plug On the exhaust side of the engines, things could not be more different. While both have a "forward facing" exhaust port configuration (and, hence the turbocharger is located towards the front of the vehicle in both engines), as mentioned previously, the LE2 sports an integrated cylinder head / exhaust manifold design with a single exhaust "port" which the turbocharger assembly is directly bolted to. The LUJ/LUV features a traditional exhaust port configuration in the cylinder head, but the exhaust manifold and turbocharger turbine assembly are cast as one piece, in iron. Both use a spring-loaded-closed wastegate design (controlled by an ECM-driven boost control solenoid) with the turbocharger to control the turbine/compressor speed, but the LE2 uses a fully electronic bypass valve (like the LTG, LF3 and LF4 turbo engines) whereas the LUJ/LUV uses a more traditional mechanical bypass valve (controlled by the ECM via a solenoid). Studying the compressor maps for the LE2 turbo, we find a turbocharger that can move more air, more efficiently, at a lower compressor RPM (the LE2 turbocharger only needs to spin at ~200000 RPM to do what the LUJ/LUV does at ~270000 RPM). LE2 Turbocharger Assembly LUJ/LUV Turbocharger Assembly Catalytic converters like it hot, and with the LE2, the catalytic converter is located even closer to the turbocharger outlet for superior emissions control. The LUJ/LUV catalytic converter is located further downstream due to packaging constraints. LE2 Catalytic Converter To drive the new LE2 engine, an upgraded engine control module (ECM) is required. The new generation "E80" SIDI ECM has seen service in vehicles starting in 2015, and in the Cruze, is replacing the "E78" MPFI ECM used to drive the LUJ/LUV. LE2 E80 ECM One feature that the LUJ/LUV has, which the LE2 does not, is an ECM-controlled variable thermostat. In the LUJ/LUV engine, the ECM dictates the desired engine coolant temperature and can control it by applying current to an electronic thermostat to either cause it to open at a lower, or higher temperature, depending on driver demand, cooling system demand, and other criteria. Fuel Economy Because of the efficiency of the new LE2, the new 2016+ Chevrolet Cruze does not offer an ECO-specific variant, only the choice of manual or automatic transmission (as well as several trim levels: L, LS, LT, and Premier). According to GM, the manual transmission reaches up to 42MPG on the highway and the automatic transmission reaches up to 40MPG on the highway. With the LUJ/LUV, according to GM, fuel economy is up to 42MPG with the ECO manual transmission and up to 38MPG on the highway with the ECO automatic. Also, the new 2016+ Chevrolet Cruze features start/stop technology. When the vehicle is stopped, provided other criteria are met, the engine shuts off to avoid wasting fuel while sitting at a stop light. When the driver takes their foot off the brake, the engine starts again, seamlessly. So, what about power? The LE2 is factory-rated at 153HP (5600 RPM) and 177lb-ft torque (2000-4000 RPM). The LUJ/LUV is factory-rated at 139HP (4900-6000 RPM) and 149 lb-ft of torque (1850-4900 RPM). TRIFECTA's testing suggests that calibration changes will yield similar gains in the LE2 vs the LUJ/LUV. Summary An exciting new era is upon us! GM says the SGE family will replace all of the existing small gasoline-powered engines in their lineup by the end of the decade, so look to find the LE2 (or some variant of it) in all LUJ/LUV applications over the next few years, as well as more wide-spread use of the LFV (1.5L SIDI turbocharged SGE). TRIFECTA is more than excited to lead the aftermarket of the SGE family into the future!

  12. The interesting reality is these numbers are only predictions - there is no specific hardware in the powertrain that can measure ACTUAL delivered engine torque. However, the predictions are extremely accurate so long as the mathematical model behind them is correct. Initially implemented as a series of 78 three dimensional "coefficient" tables located in the ECM, they have grown to become the cornerstone of everything from idle control, to boost control, and things like the way the accelerator pedal feels in the vehicle. The end result is commanded timing, throttle blade position, and a host of other things are directly affected by how much power the engine is predicted to be making. The so-called ECM power-reported numbers are the end result of these calculations. These tables describe how manifold pressure, measured airflow, timing advance, and even the commanded fuel ratio affect the engine torque output under all operating conditions. As vehicles are modified away from the factory configuration, it is important to keep this model accurate by adjusting the coefficient tables.
  13. With the release of the 2016 Cadillac ATS, comes an astonishing number of changes to the vehicle, most of which are not so obvious save but the realigning of the badges on the trunk. However, beneath the covers, it's practically a new car. The most dramatic change (aside from the introduction of the ATS-V) is in the form of adding two gears to the automatic transmission. After all, more gears is better, right? In adding to the transmission, Cadillac's focus was largely on improving economy by allowing for lower RPMs on the freeway for which they achieved very well. However, our calibration engineers felt there was something lost in the way the car feels with the extra gears (versus the 6sp automatic). Excessive throttle input is required to get a desired downshift, and when it finally came about, it always felt like too many gears were dropped. With TRIFECTA, the car feels as though it instictually knows what the driver wants as they roll into the pedal. Gears peel off intuitively, and the turbocharger responds in concert. Pedal action to vehicle response, it goes from being an ON/OFF switch for Luxury vs Performance to a gradient - an infinite "middle ground", with the original character of the vehicle retained at the lightest and heaviest pedal input. For those who use the Sport mode and enjoy the predictive shift control logic, TRIFECTA's seemless integration with this feature provides a truly thrilling experience. But what about power? Does it go faster? With TRIFECTA's modest bump in horsepower and torque output (2.0L Turbocharged engine, up to 36HP and 52lb-ft torque, measured at the wheels), slamming the pedal to the floor results in an instant feeling of "Yeah, that's the way the car should be." However, we don't expect to have our words taken for it. Effective immediately, in limited quantity, and for a limited time, those interested in experiencing TRIFECTA in their stock 2016 Cadillac ATS 2.0L Turbo may request a DEMO calibration (speed limited to 85MPH) at absolutely no charge, and no obligation (2013 - 2015 Cadillac ATS 2.0L Turbo calibrations will be available at a future date). After processing the request for the DEMO calibration, TRIFECTA's flash loader device will be shipped at no charge, and the DEMO calibration will be made available. Regardless of whether the full product is eventually purchased, the flash loader device does not need to be returned, ever.
  14. TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of an update to the TRIFECTA Advantage and TRIFECTA Elite calibration for the 2011-2015 Chevrolet Cruze and 2016+ Chevrolet Cruze Limited with the 1.4L Turbo engine. The new calibration is being designated DSVM II (driver selectable vehicle mode, Version 2) in accordance with the recent similar release for the Chevrolet Sonic with the 1.4L Turbo engine. TRIFECTA's DSVM II, on the Chevrolet Cruze, is activated by the cruise control system arming switch. When the cruise control system is enabled, the vehicle operates in STOCK mode. When the cruise control system is disabled, the vehicle operates in SPORT mode. Vehicle modes can be switched at any time, as many times as the driver wishes. Cruise control system functionality is completely retained and unaffected by DSVM II. In SPORT mode, the vehicle responds much more quickly to accelerator input. Automatic transmission shift patterns are optimized for maximum performance and responsiveness. During "everyday" driving manuevers, the vehicle feels very much like it did from the factory, but rolling into the pedal quickly reveals a vehicle that wants to GO. Attentive, but without being "twitchy", power delivery is linear and transmission shifts are purposeful. The vehicle produces maximum TRIFECTA power! In STOCK mode, the vehicle behaves just like it did from the factory, under all driving conditions! Just as was mentioned in the recent release of the Chevrolet Sonic DSVM II calibration, our calibration engineering team has been working on the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo. Just like any other large scale software project, GM typically uses a common "code base" within an ECU type, and this "code base" is generally updated every model year. After studying the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze ECU code in our engineering center, we discovered some improvements in calibration constructs that had not existed in previous model years, which we determined could be "back ported" to previous model years to offer an exceptionally improved driving experience not possible prior to the 2016 "code base". This discovery, combined with feedback on the current DSVM calibration led to a complete "redo" of the TRIFECTA Cruze calibration. SPORT mode is all new, redesigned from the ground up. Availability: TRIFECTA's DSVM II for the 2011+ Chevrolet Cruze (LUJ--LUV) is available immediately and is incorporated into all new product orders. Exisiting TRIFECTA customers may request and receive the DSVM II calibration update at absolutely no charge by submitting a request at the following link (be sure to include your vehicle's VIN): DSVM II Update Request For those who are not current TRIFECTA customers, who are interested in our new DSVM II calibration have two options: Advantage - $298 (plus s/h): Chevrolet Cruze - 1.4L Turbo Advantage The TRIFECTA Advantage Calibration is meant for 100% stock vehicles. No individualizations or support for parts that do not function on factory calibration (if you have such modifications, be sure to check with us prior to placing order). No remote tuning. Elite - $398 (plus s/h): 2011+ Chevrolet Cruze - 1.4L Turbo Elite The TRIFECTA Elite Powertrain Recalibration with Individualization (Custom Profiling) for the MY2011-MY2016 Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T (LUJ--LUV) includes calibration individualization, remote diagnostics, and comprehensive aftermarket hardware software integration support.

  15. Offering driver-selectable vehicle modes is an exclusive feature of TRIFECTA calibrations, that, prior to TRIFECTA's innovation, only exisited in the most expensive and premium vehicles that GM offers (Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Cadillac CTS, etc). Utilizing a custom operating system, we have brought this premium feature to virtually every vehicle type we offer calibrations for. TRIFECTA's DSVM II, on the Chevrolet Sonic, is activated by the cruise control system arming switch. When the cruise control system is enabled, the vehicle operates in STOCK mode. When the cruise control system is disabled, the vehicle operates in SPORT mode. Vehicle modes can be switched at any time, as many times as the driver wishes. Cruise control system functionality is completely retained and unaffected by DSVM II. In SPORT mode, the vehicle responds much more quickly to accelerator input. Automatic transmission shift patterns are optimized for maximum performance and responsiveness. During "everyday" driving manuevers, the vehicle feels very much like it did from the factory, but rolling into the pedal quickly reveals a vehicle that wants to GO. Attentive, but without being "twitchy", power delivery is linear and transmission shifts are purposeful. The vehicle produces maximum TRIFECTA power! In STOCK mode, the vehicle behaves just like it did from the factory, under all driving conditions! More than PAL (previous Sonic calibration) + STOCK, this is a whole new calibration We announced several months back that our calibration engineering team was working on the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic Turbo. Just like any other large scale software project, GM typically uses a common "code base" within an ECU type, and this "code base" is generally updated every model year. After studying the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic ECU code in our engineering center, we discovered some improvements in calibration constructs that had not existed in previous model years, which we determined could be "back ported" to previous model years to offer an exceptionally improved driving experience not possible prior to the 2016 "code base". This discovery, combined with feedback on the PAL calibration led to a complete "redo" of the TRIFECTA Sonic calibration. SPORT mode is all new, redesigned from the ground up. Availability: TRIFECTA's DSVM II for the 2012+ Chevrolet Sonic (LUV) is available immediately and is incorporated into all new product orders. Exisiting TRIFECTA customers may request and receive the DSVM II calibration update at absolutely no charge by submitting a request at the following link (be sure to include your vehicle's VIN): Contact Us
  16. When a customer buys TRIFECTA, they are tapping into over 6 years of 1.4L Turbo (LUJ/LUV) calibration experience. No other company has calibrated as many Chevrolet Cruze or Chevrolet Sonic vehicles, with experience calibrating stock vehicles all the way to fully upgraded turbochargers. TRIFECTA has always prided itself on offering complete, ongoing, remote-calibration and individualization to customers that purchase the TRIFECTA Elite product. Process and support infrastructure improvements and consolidation have led to both a lower overhead and better ability to provide excellent service to our customers. Additionally, the market spoke to us about price when we set sales records, moving the TRIFECTA Elite product at the recent Black Friday special. Moving forward there will be the following TRIFECTA products: 2011 - Present Chevrolet Cruze (LUJ/LUV) $298 + s/h - TRIFECTA Advantage Calibration for 2011+ Chevrolet Cruze (LUJ/LUV) $398 + s/h - TRIFECTA Elite Calibration for 2011+ Chevrolet Cruze (LUJ/LUV) 2012 - Present Chevrolet Sonic (LUJ/LUV) $298 + s/h - TRIFECTA Advantage Calibration for 2012+ Chevrolet Sonic (LUV) $398 + s/h - TRIFECTA Elite Calibration for 2012+ Chevrolet Sonic (LUV) What's the difference between the two products? Advantage = Meant for 100% stock vehicles. No individualization or support for parts that do not function on factory calibration (if you have such modifications, be sure to check with us prior to placing order). No remote tuning. Elite = Same as Advantage, however, we will individualize the calibration for parts already installed at the time of purchase and provide updates for modifications installed after the fact. Full diagnostic log review when needed. This package is the premium full support package. Both Advantage and Elite include a flash loader device
  17. First there was LF3, then there was the LF4. The LF3 and the LF4 are exciting engines and represent some of the best technology GM has released to date. They share much in common, but there are also many features unique to each. One of the biggest differences are the turbochargers. Those used on the LF3 (designed to spin to 175,000 RPM) are smaller than those found on the LF4, and are designed to provide improved turbine acceleration (spool) at lower RPM to move the heavier CTS VSport. The LF4 turbochargers (designed to spin to 157,500 RPM), in contrast are larger, and designed to allow for greater peak power through improved flow through the larger turbine section at the expense of low RPM spool. This alone largely explains the differences in factory power provided by the LF3 and LF4. Additionally, the LF4 has features you'd expect to find in a track-destined application, such as titanium connecting rods, redesigned oil pan, and more resilient internal components to stand up to the most severe duty track service can dish out. But there are many similarities, one of the most blatant being that the LF3 and the LF4 share the same factory operating system. The three model years worth of LF3 experience built into TRIFECTA's custom operating systems and calibrations have been applied to, and extended for the LF4, and its specific application in the 2016+ Cadillac ATS-V. The TRIFECTA Advantage: Product Development Process From the high deserts to the low lying coastal areas, the frigid North, and the humid South, on public roads, and on race tracks, TRIFECTA's calibrations are developed and thoroughly tested using rigid protocols not unlike those used by auto manufacturers. Our fleet development vehicles have seen hundreds of thousands of miles of service, and countless hours on the chassis dyno. But how does it drive? One area that is given less concern by most is that of drivability. Most aftermarket calibrations shoot for more power. But what about making the vehicle drive better? As we get more and more gears, particularly in our automatic transmissions, improving the drivability experience (without sacrificing economy) becomes an increasingly complex problem to solve. Our specific drivability engineers spend thousands of hours behind the wheel, focused on chasing down any defects in the factory map while designing a thrilling experience without requiring more stops at the fuel station. TRIFECTA, in 20 minutes or less. TRIFECTA products utilize a flash-loader device that will re-calibrate (flash) your vehicle in approximately 20 minutes and always allow returning the vehicle to the stock calibration when needed. TRIFECTA customers always receive the latest factory software updates automatically, and when either factory software updates are made, or calibration updates are made, they are available to those product-specific customers at no charge. Pricing and availability to be announced.
  18. While not required with existing TRIFECTA CTS VSport calibration, this application-specific calibration offers the best experience with the Corsa exhaust system by optimizing engine and transmission characteristics for all drive modes. Tour mode (stock tour mode) delivers a factory driving experience, with a quieter exhaust note, for everyday driving. Sport and Track mode allow the engine to "rev out" further in each gear, combined with increased throttle demand to give off a more performance-oriented exhaust note. ECU dynamic recalibration in Sport / Track mode offers a performance over economy option, offering quicker turbo and vehicle response, a side effect of which is a more aggressive exhaust note at idle. TRIFECTA's powertrain calibrations are tested and validated for various environments, such as cold/heat, elevation, and variations in fuel quality. Each vehicle type is validated on TRIFECTA's test fleet for a minimum of 100,000 miles and 100 hours of full throttle application prior to retail release. We make no compromises in comprehensiveness, safety, and power. Specifications of the TRIFECTA CTS VSport / Corsa exhaust system calibration: - Corsa mufflers offer 20% improved flow over stock: more flow, more power - Specific calibration for Corsa exhaust system - Retains all OE diagnostics and functionality - Retains all OE error code reporting and functionality - Emissions readiness checks present; all emissions systems retained / factory compliant Driver-selectable modes (Sport and Track): - Optimized for performance over economy - Provides quicker turbine acceleration (turbo spool) by on-the-fly recalibration of: Fuel injection timing (single and dual-pulse) Independent camshaft phasing Ignition timing Throttle angle ramp rates Turbocharger wastegate and bypass valve control rates Torque-prediction coefficients Airflow-prediction coefficients - Offers a more "aggressive" exhaust note at idle (similar to dual mode exhaust on CTS-V) - Recalibrates Aisin transmission shift characteristics Tour mode remains at factory shift points / firmness Exhaust note is quieter Sport and Track mode optimized for performance and driver experience Improved firmness Optimized "torque management" Shift strategy recalibration Exhaust note is louder Purchase details / availability: - All TRIFECTA CTS VSport customers of record of 12/15/15 that previously purchased a Corsa exhaust system before 12/15/15* will be eligible for a free upgrade to the TRIFECTA CTS VSport / Corsa exhaust system calibration at no charge - After 12/15/15, calibration is available when purchased with a Corsa exhaust system through TRIFECTA or an authorized TRIFECTA reseller offering the TRIFECTA CTS VSport calibration - Calibration expected to be available Mid-Late January 2016 (pending final endurance and environmental tests) - TRIFECTA CTS VSport / Corsa exhaust system package pricing TBA when calibration is available * Dated proof of purchase may be required for redemption
