  • 17 Digit Vehicle Identification Number.

    Must be exactly 17 digits, 9th digit must be 0--9 or 'X', and cannot contain characters 'I', 'O', or 'Q'.

    We recommend acquiring the VIN directly from the vehicle's VIN Plaque on the dash, or the certification label in the door jamb since insurance and service documents are sometimes incorrect.

  • Support is not officially provided for aftermarket hardware with this calibration, however many hardware components which would normally work without any specific adjustment on the factory calibration may be automatically compatible.

    Examples include:

    -Most Exhaust components

    -Recirculated turbo bypass valves

    -Most brand name intakes (ONLY with any included resonator/venturi designed to prevent the intake from setting any DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes).

    If you are not sure whether your hardware is compatible with TRIFECTA Advantage, please Contact Us for assistance!

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

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.

Big thanks to these guys for great customer service and a great tune at a affordable price!



In sport mode, you will feel the difference and have so much fun!

In eco mode, I did a 50 mile drive both ways on the same highway and I did gain around 4mpg

Great Customer service

Easy to work with tune, almost anybody can do this, great software!

They provided a great website to navigate and use and get all your downloads needed!



None ;) other then me getting newer tires sooner haha!

Very Impressed with the new performance!

The engine is much more responsive than stock, particularly in 5th or 6th gears. When in stock mode, and 5th or 6th (manual trans) you had to be aware of your speed and of the terrain, or you had NO power. Now the little engine pulls willingly above 2000rpm.

Second gear is FUN, and will take you past 55mph in a hurry. Third gear pulls almost as well as 2nd, above 3000rpm.

Excellent throttle response, excellent acceleration in all gears, at all rpm, and at all throttle positions.

The Trifecta tune for the 1.4L Cruze was well thought out and well executed.

Thank you for turning my little econobox into a FUN machine to drive!
