2011--2015 Chevrolet Cruze - 2016 Cruze Limited - 1.4L Turbo Advantage

(54 reviews)
$298.00
TRIFECTA presents: Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T MY2011--2016 Cruze Limited Calibration (December 2015 Update) Specific power increases of up to +51 ft-lbs and +44 WHP peak to a completely stock Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T.
 
The TRIFECTA powertrain recalibration for the Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T blends class leading all-around performance with improved fuel efficiency.
 
For those vehicles with automatic transmissions: All TRIFECTA Powertrain Recalibrations include updated automatic transmission calibrations which provide smoother shifting, improved shift times, and improved shifting logic vs previous calibration revisions; updated featuresets include rolling anti-lag and 300 percent faster shifts than stock.
 
For those vehicles with manual transmissions: All TRIFECTA Powertrain Recalibrations offer "no lift shift", allowing the driver to shift the transmission at lightning quick speeds without losing turbocharger boost. The shift is executed as normally, with the clutch, but the accelerator is held to the floor to retain full boost.
 
With the current generation of TRIFECTA's flash loader solutions and the TRIFECTA Transparency featureset, when flashing your vehicle, the TRIFECTA flash loader does not increment the ECM write counter or increment entries in the flash history.
 
With the December 2015 update, TRIFECTA Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes, version 2 (DSVM II) is included. Select between SPORT and STOCK mode, on the fly with the cruise control arming switch. 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!
 
The Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T TRIFECTA powertrain recalibration delivers more than 130 horsepower per liter and more than 140 ft-lbs per liter – powering a fuel efficient vehicle whose drivers are more inclined to use it while ensuring critical powertrain reliability. Enhancements made to the Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T Ecotec engine software to withstand the added stresses include:
 
Extended testing of more than 100,000 miles with 100 hrs + of wide open throttle testing
Powertrain calibration has been tested and validated for various environments, such as cold/heat, elevation, and variations in fuel quality
Octane Adaptive construct enables multi-phased timing tables: Five distinct timing tables replace the OE GM implementation of high/low octane tables
Multi-dimensional Airflow Coefficient tables, adds air pressure bias and knock history overlay for enhanced accuracy in boost scenarios
Virtualized torque prediction coefficients recalculation model added
Airflow based commanded fuel ratio strategies added
Multi-stage knock sensor decay and recovery rate tables added
TRIFECTA ECP.MK2 (Hybrid Speed Density) support and constructs added
 
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.
 
Additional information:
 
-This powertrain calibration includes a TRIFECTA powertrain calibration file specific to your vehicle and includes a flash loader device
-Premium fuel is recommended for maximum power output, but not required
-Advertised gains are quoted as 'up to' and may be less for a vehicle operated at altitudes higher than near sea level.
-Powertrain calibrations currently exist for the US, CA, EU, RUS/CIS, MEC, and Asia areas, with more regions to follow.

I cannot believe the improvement this tune has had on my Cruze. It was incredibly easy to install with zero issues whatsoever. I would recommend this to anyone who owns a Cruze regardless of wether or not they cared about the extra performance. The gas savings I have received, when I’m not on a spirited drive, has more than covered the cost. My Cruze drives so much smoother than it did before. I no longer struggle to get up to speed on the freeway, or climb up large hills. The performance improvements have been phenomenal. The throttle response is a lot more precise. The acceleration is significantly increased. The shifts are smoother and faster. It’s much easier to break traction if desired. I had read every review on the website and couldn’t believe what everyone was saying until I got it myself. All of the reviews I had read were true. If The tune completely blew me away. If you are on the fence about buying this, don’t wait any longer. You will regret the time you could have had this tune, but decided to wait like I did. Don’t be like me. Do yourself a huge favor and buy it. You will NOT regret it. I would rate this 6/5 stars if I could.

I'm gonna be very honest here with my review. If I see a tune that is too good to be true I normally dont buy it, but I had to try the Trifecta tune. I can honestly say I'm very glad I did. The difference between stock and tuned is night and day. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't of tried it. I can say, I wont be returning back to stock anytime soon lol. I love this product and I'll let all of my friends know to get it asap. Thanks Trifecta for giving my Cruze RS some power!!

I have been driving my eco cruze with this tune for nearly a week now and everyday I am stunned at the difference in pick up. It's like driving a new car. Every gear has power, even 6th gear - which has always felt useless. Now I can pass people in 6th gear. I love this tune. Gas mileage is still great too. It really woke the car up. I will recommend this site to every chevy owner I know!

Guys the tune works great. Have 2012 Chevy Cruze w/manual transmission with less than 60000 on it, after installing this tune you can tell the difference. A+

Just reprogrammed my 2014 chevy cruze, and I have to say I'm impressed! This tune is great! Throttle response and power through the whole rpm range is amazing, as is the shifting of the auto trans. Car was fun to drive before, but now it is even better. Was so easy to install, and the results are way better than I expected. Thank you guys for a great tune!

Wow! I love this tune and it is most certainly the best money I have ever spent on this car. Shifts are lightning fast and with the touch of the cruise control arming switch you can easily and quickly switch between driving modes. You can feel a difference in the power, merging onto the highway is super easy with this tune. Low rpm torque is improved significantly and turbo lag is seriously reduced. The shifts are so smooth it is crazy unless I am watching the rpm change I will not notice when it shifts its so fast its unbelievable. As many others have said "the difference is night and day" and it is most certainly worth the money. I will never return to stock, buy this now and you will thank me later. I drive 25k+ miles every year and this tune has made me LOVE driving this car, its so much fun to drive. Thank you Trifecta!

Customer support was great. The tune overall made the car a little more responsive. Wish that it was a little more then just you get what you get. I'd like to have had a little more to control myself.

I love the tune. This tune makes the car more responsive. And the extra power helps around town. And with the biggest problem. When the AC is on the car was way under powered. It will never be a fast car.The transmission still learns your driving habit. And will hold a gear a little longer then stock. But in manual mode. The car get up to highway speeds faster. But this is the car Chevy should have made. I have had the tune for about a year. And have had not a single problem. With the tune or my car. I would recommend Trifecta to everyone. Love their products.

I have been more than happy with the advantage performance upgrade that Trifecta has provided for my 1.4 turbo Chevy Cruze. The support team has been more than helpful and very prompt with service. I would definitely recommend Trifecta to others looking for a little more out of their Chevy Cruze.

So, I was nervous about purchasing this mod. I've not installed anything like this before. So, it was a bit of a leap of faith.

And, when I decided to take the plunge, I found the install more challenging than the instructions suggested; but I think this was linked to some of the security settings on my laptop, along with having to sit in my car for around 40 minutes in the Houston heat and humidity, while I fumbled through the process (oh yeah, it made me do it twice - which Trifecta does state is a possibility).

 

Anyway.....after all that, I have to say that the mod has worked very, very well.

I'm not sure about improved fuel economy because to be honest, I drive the car more 'energetically'. But, that was part of the reason for buying the mod. Living in Houston, where everyone drives huge v8s and the traffic is crazy, I wanted to give the Cruze some extra boost to stay out of trouble.

And that is what this mod is about, for me. The power boost has been fantastic, the gear changes are so much smoother and the turbo is spooling almost all the time, ready to give you the extra you need in an almost naturally aspirated way. I would totally recommend this mod.

 

Great job Trifecta!

Im Very Happy with my tune as well as your customer support. All of my questions have been answered quickly and any issues resolved. The tune was installed just after the 60,000 km mark,My car just rolled over 200,000Km and everything still seems good. I've tested the millage with the tune on and off through summer and winter and the fuel mileage while running the tune has always been comparable to the factory setting. I will not hesitate to buy another tune for my next vehicle.

I am very please with the tune. The performance increase and driveability on this little 1.4L is very noticeable. I look forward to getting a hot tune for my 2015 2.0 turbo Regal soon!

Amazing, easy install. Let me just say this. My gas saving 2012 Chevy Cruze eco was 12 seconds 0-60. Simply downloading this tune and adding a K&N cold air intake, I now run 0-60 in just under 8 seconds. Not super fast but it made my vehicle a lot more fun to drive! When you have close to 200 hp and only about 3,000lbs of vehicle that has an extra low profile to the road, you will be more than tempted to take a 40mph off ramp on the expressway at 90mph no problem, if you have good tires. Great product

I am pleased with the extra throttle response and more powerful acceleration of my Cruze with the Trifecta tune that I purchased over a year ago. Shipping was fast, instructions and videos were easy to understand, my self installation went smoothly. I highly recommend this product for anyone with a Chevy Cruze 1.4l turbo, the Trifecta tune makes the car much more fun to drive.

Cruze is pretty slow stock. This program woke the car up. Had it over a year now and it's been in to the dealer for a water pump replacement. They had no idea it was installed. Very very happy with the performance gains, worth every penny.

This tune is amazing. The increase in power is night and day. Very easy to install, and the Trifecta support team has been very helpful answering any questions I have had. The only thing that I think would improve this tune, and get that last star, would be if the Trifecta team could improve the lag time on takeoff. It still launches close to stock and I was a little disappointed in that. Overall though, BUY THIS TUNE!

This is a good tune as the car runs better than stock but transmission doesn't seem to downshift as smooth when stopping as I would like. The stock tune downshifts smooth since I changed tanny fluid, but DOES NOT run as well as the Trifecta tune. Tranny shifts could use a little tweak.
