  • 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!

This tune made my Colorado a totally different truck, it's completely transformed, no more lagging transmission, the engine now has power in the mid-range, and it's very quick considering it's a truck with a 4 cylinder. Great job Trifecta!

When I tow my 17 foot travel trailer with my 2017 Colorado with a 2.5 liter and a 6 speed manual transmission it just needed a little more power to get up hills. I spent a lot of time trying to find a cheap and easy way of gaining that little bit more power. I all the forums that went to, they all talk about Trifecta performance and that's where I found my answer for more power at cheaper cost that I could afford. The first time I drove the truck blew me away, you feel the deference right away with the first shift. You can just feel the power difference between the stock tune and Advantage tune, it just wants to pull in every gear and now its more fun to drive. If you are looking for a tune that proven and works I recommend Trifecta performance and the Advantage tune.

I have a 2016 Chevy Colorado 2.5l.

All I have to say about the Trifecta 2.5l Advantage tune is......

Quality product! Quality customer service! Easy to install!! Makes a huge difference and you should definitely do it!!!

Only thing is......

Hopefully I can keep my foot off the gas pedal so I can get better mpg as planned, but it's so fun to hit the gas pedal (especially with the K&N intake) lol

This is the 3rd vehicle that I have purchased a tune for. This one is that best one I have got yet!!! It is like a totally different truck. The difference is amazing on this vehicle. It was like the engine was breathing threw a straw before. You can even Hear the difference. Revs up so much faster. Engine would fall on its face before @ 4500 RPM. Now revs solid up to red line. It was like something was wrong with the truck before the tune.
