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

(56 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.

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 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.

I have to give this tune a lot of credit! For any 1.4L Chevy cruze owner out their, this is a must have for your vehicle. The extra power that this tune can get out of this size engine is just simply amazing. Being a first time customer to this company, I have to say that the product was exactly as described and also that they have great customer service as well as support for answering any questions. So glad I was referred to them, and I will be recommending Trifecta to anyone looking to get some more power out of their vehicle. Couldn't be any happier with how my car performs with it!!

Cable arrived here in Canada no problems. I installed the tune as per the instruction and now my car has a lot more power. It almost feels like there is a different engine under the hood. I am accidentally going 20km over the limit because I was so used to the stock tune. Nevertheless, the tune is probably the best thing you could do to your cruze.

Wow is right. After a few key cycles I had to hold on when mashing it to prevent the wheels from pulling the car sideways from all that torque in first. Shifting omg the shifting improvement. Third gear pulls really great now. Got a cold air intake which makes the turbo sound great on this car and even better now that it's not afraid to reach into the higher RPMs. Will probably upgrade as this is just the stock tune. Oh and if you can get the LTZ RS model Cruze. Seems used they are pretty cheap for what you get - all the bells and whistles (that now I couldn't do without) plus upgraded suspension, seems like brakes but can't remember, upgraded audio... everyone that's seen it is impressed. Guarantee with this tune it's competing with the luxury cars out there in performance and handling.

Took 4 days for the tune to arrive and about 20 minutes to flash everything but WOW it makes a huge impact on the Cruze. I used to have to stomp in the gas to merge onto the highway but nope, not anymore! If you have a Cruze this is what you need I'm in love with it. THANK YOU TRIFECTA

Loving the tune so far, you can immediately feel the improved throttle response as well as the improved shifts in the trans. I havent been able to do too much testing on the tune just yet, but so far what I have experienced I have really enjoyed. :D

In my opinion chevy should have just ran this tune from the factory floor. Toggling between stock to tour just really makes you realize how great the tune really is. It just makes the cruze come alive. I would rather sell the car then drive with out the trifecta tune enabled. Great tune. Great customer service.

35K miles later and the car still puts a smile on my face at every single ride. Had three upgrades and car went from stock to impressive, then to splendid and then to extraordinary. Thank you Team Trifecta!

I received my Ez cable today, and re-calibrated my car with the tune, and all I can say is WOW, the team at Trifecta definitely made the Cruze come to life and produce the way it should have from the Factory. If you are even thinking about buying this tune, stop thinking and follow your instinct and buy the tune! You will not regret it, the shifts are so much smoother, and I do not see the hesitation that constantly annoyed me, when trying to get on the free way or just get the car to go. As it states in the description, the car now wants to GO!!!

 

Thank you so much Tifecta for putting in the work, that honestly shows through your tune. I can only imagine what some of the other tunes for different makes, and or models.

Really woke my cruze up! Zero turbo lag, no hesitant or rough shifting, idle is smoother. Did more for the car than I expected! It's not a vette, but this with this tune and minor mods this little 1.4 can hold its own against new v6 civics, maximas, camrys, etc. Best thing a cruze owner could do for their car. Great Value! Highly recommend!

I would definitely recommend this tune. Not only because of the performance difference, but also because of the amazing customer service. Any question that I had was answered in a timely manner, and with professionalism.

I installed the Chevy Cruze LImited 1.4L turbo advantage tuner on my wife's 2014 Chevy Cruze 1LT, a couple of months ago. I was so impressed with the improvements on my wifes car that I bought a tuner for my sons 2014 Chevy Cruze Eco as well. Both my wife and my son can't believe how much better their car drives. My son had driven his moms car between the up grades and the difference for him was night and day. Much better acceleration. Much better shifting. My wife and son are very happy with your tuner program. Thanks...

2015 Cruze LTZ/RS 1.4l:

I ordered the tune after reading the reviews on this site. Had shopped around a little and found this upgrade to be the biggest bang for the buck. I am always hesitant doing business with a company for the first time. Trifecta delivered on their product and customer service. Top notch professional service and a tune that will amaze you. Thanks again for waking up the dogs in my cruze. Will shop again soon.

Everything I have read pointed me to this tune and I was still taken back at how much power I gained. I have an automatic transmission and breaking the tires loose takes not much throttle. It's made my car alot more fun stoplight to stoplight. I would recommend this to every cruze owner.

After having it for about 5,000 miles, I am overall very happy I bought this tune. The most noticeable difference is how fast the automatic transmission shifts. Often times under hard acceleration you can hear the tires "chirp" when shifting, and it feels as if no boost is being lost between shifts. When driven gently the transmission shifts smoothly as if it were stock, which is nice. In the "touring mode" it holds the rpm's a bit higher, and makes the throttle a bit more sensitive. The extra boost is mostly noticeable in 3rd gear or higher. Overall it just makes the car more fun to drive around town. I ran a series of 0-60 tests using an OBD adapter and the Torque app for Android. Keep in mind I live nearly a mile above sea level. Times were almost a full second faster than stock, however they could be better. You only get the super fast shifting when the car is in automatic mode, if you want to select your own gears, it still shifts as it did when it was on the stock tune. Also when in automatic mode it still shifts at around 6,500 rpm's under wide open throttle, even though it feels to lose its pull at around 6,000. My fastest 0-60 times were in manual mode, shifting at about 6,000 rather than 6,500. Using manual mode gave me nearly .4 seconds faster of a 0-60 time. That being said, I still really enjoy driving the car with the tune. It obviously isn't meant to be a race car, but it is really enjoyable to drive, especially when compared to how it drove when it was stock. I have a 2014 1lt automatic with 8,xxx miles.
