I purchased my 2014 Malibu in September 2018 because I love the styling of the LTZ. I Found this site online through a Malibu Turbo forum site.  Didn't think it was a real upgrade until I ordered and installed it.

This tune has awoken my Malibu, it was pretty quick before when I bought it, but now its amazing the difference in power.  I drive 65 miles daily to/from work on the highway and can easily pass anyone I need to when I punch the throttle.  I am very happy with this upgrade.  It was very easy to download and program the car.  I am a believer now!  Thanks Trifecta!

I have run this tune for almost a year now, I have been nothing but happy. I thought my car was fast before, but I had no idea what was hiding inside that 2.0L engine. The biggest problem, is trying to keep my right foot from crushing the carpet. Seriously, there is no better bang for your buck than Trifecta.

I always knew my 2015 Malibu Turbo had potential, if only it could overcome horrible turbo lag and poorly aligned shift points. So I installed the Trifecta Advantage and proved it! I just use it for commuting but now it feels alive and is totally fun to drive.

This is wonderful. It made the car 100% better. 0-60 about 1 sec faster, but Really noticeable 55-80. car was always dull passing. Now I can defiantly feel the power. Shift points are perfect and the increase in the redline makes the engine sound awesome. THANK YOU!!!!!!!! AAron

1st: Fast shipping

2nd: Easy to install

3rd: Really impressive!

 

The product is really impressive and powerful. If you think than your stock 2.0T is faster, with the trifecta tune your car is a rocket! I love Trifecta Performance. Thank you very much!

Purchased tune in May of 2015. It turned my already healthy running Malibu 2.0T into a wheel smoking, fire breathing monster! Seriously it made a huge difference in horsepower, torque and about an additional 4mpg highway. In the last 18 months I have thoroughly enjoyed driving the Malibu. My wife still can't understand why the car runs so strong, and still gets 42mpg highway. It the best of both worlds. Way to go guys!

I've been running this tune in my 2014 2.0L turbo Malibu LTZ for about 3 months now. It is a great tune! Probably the best I've ever had done on any car I've owned. I just drove a 2.0L turbo Buick GS yesterday and now I really see the difference. Now that I'm use to the tune, a car without it just doesn't cut it. Great job Trifecta!
