I purchased my ‘14 Regal GS AWD new and from day one I’ve loved everything about this car. It’s fun to drive and the handling is amazing.  Installing  the Trifecta tune took my car to another level of performance. I couldn’t be more impressed with this product and I highly recommend it to anyone considering putting a tune on their ride. DBDCA1D9-53F5-4D71-8D21-98E7446F91A2.thumb.jpeg.59960b2c8920bb228bf03834e3b9b972.jpeg

I bought my 2014 Buick GS new.  From the first day driving it hard, I found acceleration and speed just did not keep up with the handling.  It rode competently, but neither GS, Sport or Touring modes made any difference to the driving experience.  In November 2016, I installed the Trifecta tune at 10,000 miles.  It now has 45,000 miles as of November 2021.  From the first day, the difference was remarkable; the car accelerates quickly, is no longer a slow poke, and beats most traffic!  Especially in Sport Mode, the car keeps up, accelerates out of harms way, and is a joy to drive.  Even my wife experienced this.  Usually, I drive in Touring mode in commuting.  My overall gas mileage dropped about 1 mpg, but that is entirely worth it.  Servicing of the GS has always been at the dealer.  I received no comments about the Trifecta tune being installed.  Neither, have I had to ever adjust the tune.  In short, do not hesitate to install this tune as I did.  The tune transformed the car.  It probably put back the acceleration the detuners at GM decided we Americans deserved.

all I can say  about the performance of my 2015 Regal is wow,  I sell GM cars and it definitely will outrun a CT4V after the tune.... gas mileage is down but I expected it

I just purchased the Advantage tune a few weeks ago. Take a few hours for my file to be able to download, had to wait a few days for the cable to arrive....costumer service is top notch immediate response and really helpful, Thank You Mike.

About the car: after install car drives like a completely different vehicle....my wife said "is like a racket ship" LOL Unfortunately my gas mileage went to worse since I cant help myself not to press on the throttle and enjoy the acceleration. I am sure it'll get better after the honeymoon stage wears off.

All in all I highly recommend this product it transformed my grandpas Buicks to a fast and furious contender!!!

After buying 2 plug and play obd2 performance chips, and a jet performance module. I have to say that the trifecta tune was the way to go. I feel so stupid spending all my money on billsh!t. The plug and plays did nothing, and the jet performance module while it actually did increase my cars performance it also was expensive. For 100 bucks more then jet performance module I got double the performance not to mention all the other calibrations trifecta made. For example my transmission, rev limiter, just everything. I didn’t give 5 stars just because my mpg dropped significantly. I lost about 6mpg. Plus I wish I could atleast give my car around 50 percent throttle before feeling the violence from the tune. Trifecta truly is the way to go.

Had to hold off with getting the Trifecta tune until just the right time.  But now that I've purchased and installed it, all I have to say is WOW!  This was the first time I've tuned a car, despite owning a number of cars with GM's 2.0 series of performance engines.  Trifecta made it so easy to do, between the software, the cable, and their instructions.  My 2014 Buick Regal 2.0T now drives like it should have from the factory.  The gears can be a little jittery with shifting at times, depending on how I'm driving the car, but it definitely takes off and burns rubber like the 2.0T should.  I mean, when you can keep up with a Benz on the highway?  Boo yeah!  This ain't your grandaddy's Buick!

Just added the tune to the wife's car, she was very impressed. I did have to watch a video which was helpful...also cannot use with a chrome book as it does not support the software. Had an HP Windows, and it took about 20 min to load (laptop is about 3 years old). Make sure your car battery and laptop are fully charged. Would highly recommend.

Well worth the purchase. The neck snapping body pinning torque makes me feel like I'm in a rocket. Just got 30 mpg on a road trip. Tires screeching upon take off. It's wonderful

Don't Hesitate Buy It!  This is what my 2015 Buick Regal GS AWD needed from the Factory.  I can't imagine driving this car without it.  I'm glad mine is AWD the power is immediate. 

Mine is all stock no mods and I'm very impressed.  Looks like my Pontiac Solstice GXP is next......

I install this on my Buick Regal GS 2015.   The performance is so much better. The pedal response and acceleration  are greatly improved.

I was on the fence about this tune for about a year, I wish I would have gotten this tune when I found it. I have the AWD trim and this tune improved my gas mileage and throttle response.

First of all, I truly appreciate the excellent customer service, dedication, patience, and communication with Mike...

Next, on to the tune! Wow! Awesome! Absolutely a totally different shift, fuel and air map when tune on.( Cruise Off)

When cruise on, the maps are less aggressive than with cruise off, but STILL completely different than without tune (pure stock)..

With tune,...Shifts are smooth, all while the pull of torque is strong and linear..

I have never “floored it”.. and I’ve had the tune since December 2019... For driving in city and highway, I have no need.. it is neck snapping enough as I near a bit less than half down on the pedal.. In addition to coming off of a stopped red light...When cruising, and a distant red light turns green.., so now you place your foot back on the pedal...,,good Lord! ... the pull is sooooo addictive...!!

So smooth! Not jerky at all... the best way to describe it, is like a uniformly/linear tightly wound rubber band... that adjusts to the “needs” of your right foot.. lol giving you what you need, when you need it..

With the tune on, obviously the ECM and TCM tune work seamlessly in tandem, thanks to Trifecta packing them both into one single tune file.

The tune “knows” when you need/want more power/acceleration.. of course based on your right foot, and when this is the case, the engine will hold rpms longer between shifts, building and pumping boost simultaneously... not one or the other, as it is without the tune aka turbo lag. Instead with Trifecta, both happen together at the same time!  If you don’t need the additional acceleration, the engine and transmission WONT hold the rpms longer between shifts.. it will just shift like when the CC is set ON.. except with a bit more boost.

As for the little “snail” spooling!! Lol ..I love the now audible whistle of the spool.. No blow off needed for me.. I love that it sounds like a “smaller Wentworth Big Rig”.. (referring to the sound of the spooling turbo)..

Ok now on to the gas mileage.. I actually have better mpg with tune on (cc off) than with tune off (cc on).. I thing this is attributed to the way the torque converter seems to work more intelligently with tune on..(after your are off with increased boost, you are at crushing speeds sooner, and you can actually take your foot off of the gas pedal and cover/hover over the brake as necessary.

All in all, I highly recommend the tune.. why the manufacturer did not make it this way right out of manufacturing, is beyond me... lol probably related to “planned obsolescence”!

Trifecta, thanks again!

God Bless..

I looked into upgrading my 2015 GS performance wise and ran into this last year. After a little research, I pulled the trigger and purchased this tune. I am very happy with the results, better acceleration and obvious HP increase. I have a manual GS which makes it that much more fun to drive with the tune. I would definitely recommend this.

I bought the tune about 2 years ago and just kept putting off installing the tune.WHAT A MISTAKE! I just installed it last night and got to drive it around today and it is amazing the difference it made. First gear used to be slow to take off and laggy. Now, when you hit the gas your ripping.....this is how it should come from the factory. Absolutely worth every penny!!!

Bought the trifecta tune for my 16 regal a few months ago. Didn’t actually plug it in until last night! The difference is like night and day. Product is worth buying.

What a great product. The car is so much more enjoyable to drive. I have tuned numerous vehicles over the years with handheld tuners, but Trifecta has hit a major home run with this car. This 2014 Buick Regal GS turbo is a completely different animal with the Trifecta tune. Better mileage and MUCH better response. Thanks for a great product!!!

EZ flash cable shipped asap. Great customer support system in place. My car has a K&N intake and some minor exhaust modifications. The tune complimented these modifications very nicely. The install took literally 12 or 13minutes tops. Even though the roads here in Alberta are ice and snow covered you can tell there is a huge difference in the overall driving dynamics of the car. Excited to drive the car this spring on drier roads. Highly recommend anyone interested in tuning to consider Trifecta for their vehicle.

I purchased this tune a little while ago, and I'm utterly blown away by it. I was on the fence for quite some time (like...6 months), going back and forth on whether or not I should buy it. But let me tell you, I couldn't be happier that I did. The power change is nothing short of incredible. It really comes on in second gear--the car just pulls and pulls and the tires break free shamefully easily. After buying it, the confidence I have in my car's abilities has skyrocketed. Sure, it's great fun on long open stretches, but the peace of mind that comes with knowing you can pull away from pretty much anything short of a sports car is quite satisfying. 

If you're considering buying it, my strong opinion is that you should. This tune is a little pricier than others on the market, but I went with Trifecta because they seemed to me to be the most professional about their craft. I have no problem paying a bit more to get a product that I'm confident in, especially when it comes to something that could be damaging to the overall function of my car. However, after installing it, the car started right up and I've had zero issues with anything so far.

The one thing I haven't noticed is the increase in mileage. Now, perhaps it's because I've only been driving it for a week or so, but my mileage has stayed the same (and no, it's not because I've been lead-footing it). 

Haven't had the car on a dyno to see the numbers behind the increase, but I'm not too much into that considering this is just my daily. But the sheer feeling of being in the driver's seat is enough for me. Fantastic product, fast shipping, SUPER easy to install. Fantastic work, Trifecta.

I purchased the advantage tune for my Regal GS and the difference is  like everyone else says "night and day". The price is well justified for what you get. I look forward to future products with Trifecta. Great work guys

I received the calibration file after ~10 days from the initial purchase. Installing the tune was quick and easy, maybe like 15 minutes, and then started the car up. I didn't know if it was just me but I thought I could hear the difference right after turning the key, it was louder and seemed more to life. Of course then I took it for a joy spin and like the Trifecta guys said the power was a lot more linear than stock and you could tell right away. After it warmed up, I took it to a long straight away and floored it... was super stoked on how well the car accelerated from when it was stock, definitely put a big smile on my face. You can hear the turbo and the car sounds great, I would recommend this tune to anyone. For the noticeable additional power, it's well worth the money. Customer support was great also to talk with too. Thanks Trifecta!

Nice!! easy to install, took me about 20 minutes, no issue. the difference is noticeable right away. my Regal is AWD and it feels like I have more power to the rear end and it is really fun, specialy in the snow. I always run on 91 octane gas and with the upgrade, it takes about 1 liter/100km more gas but the power upgrade totally worth it. I have about 5000km done so far and I realluy enjoy every kilometer. little hint if you're interested, I could get the Elite upgrade cheaper than the Advantage couple days after Black Friday. I bought the Advantage on Black Friday.
