2016--2017 Chevrolet Malibu - 1.5L Turbo - Advantage

(1 review)
$398.00
TRIFECTA 2016--2017 Chevrolet Malibu
1.5L Turbo (RPO: LFV)
6 speed automatic
 
Detailed power gains (measured at the wheels, dynojet chassis dyno)
 
1.5L gains: up to +35 ft-lbs torque, +48 horsepower (peak gains of up to 14 ft-lbs torque, +38 horsepower)
 
TRIFECTA presents: Chevrolet Malibu (1.5L) MY2016--2017 Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming (flash tune)
 
TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2016--2017 Chevrolet Malibu vehicle software recalibration (reflash) for vehicles utilizing the 1.5L Turbo (RPO: LFV) with 6 speed automatic transmission (Delphi 6T40 / RPO:MNH). Specific gains over factory calibration are up to (uncorrected) 35lb-ft of torque and 48 horsepower with no vehicle modifications beyond the updated software calibration.
 
TRIFECTA's 2016--2017 Malibu recalibration is complimented by a fully developed 6-speed automatic transmission calibration to support the increased power delivery profile and to offer dramatically improved driving characteristics from everyday driving maneuvers. The complete powertrain calibration also includes ESC (Stabilitrak) program enhancements.
 
Specifications of the TRIFECTA Performance 2016--2017 Malibu ECM software reprogramming:
 
-Fuel economy is improved (up to 39.5MPG highway observed / 1.5L), dependent on fuel grade and driving conditions
-Retains all GM OE diagnostics and ECM functionality
-Retains all OE error code reporting and functionality
-Emissions readiness checks are present; emissions compliant
-Maintains functionality of ABS and TC systems
-Knock detection mechanisms and OE engine knock detection sensitivity is retained
-Return to stock functionality included with flash loader
-Tested on all available grades of fuel (87, 89, 91, 92, and 93 octane).
 
Specifications of the TRIFECTA Performance 2016--2017 Malibu 6-Speed TCM calibration software reprogramming:
 
-Improved shift times in adverse shift patterns
-Improved shift logic - shifts are progressive and purposeful
-Does not shorten transmission life or increase cooling requirements
-Retains all OE diagnostics and TCM functionality
-Retains all OE error code reporting and functionality
 
Improved driving character:
 
Vehicle responsiveness is improved: Vehicle responds more aptly to throttle input at low speeds, power delivery is more linear under performance situations
 
Transmission shift strategies improved: Shift strategy is largely “factory” at light pedal positions to provide a familiar driving experience, but downshifts are much more progressive and purposeful at higher throttle conditions
 
Supplementary Featureset of the TRIFECTA Performance 2016--2017 Chevrolet Malibu powertrain calibration software reprogramming:
 
TRIFECTA's Performance Auto Stop Mode (PASM): Allows the driver to enable a performance-oriented auto-stop mode which, in most cases, inhibits auto-stop from enabling for improved performance character, when desired (triggered by the cruise control arming button)
 
Improved knock detection and control strategies: Reduces incidents of knock when 87 octane fuel is used, or vehicle is operated in adverse environments
 
Installation Notes:
-Estimated installation time of ~20 minutes
-Premium fuel is recommended for maximum power output, but not required
 
Additional information and availability:
 
- This powertrain calibration includes a TRIFECTA powertrain calibration file specific to your vehicle and includes a flash loader device
- Powertrain calibrations currently exist for North American vehicles only, with more regions to follow
 
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).

  • 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.

  • For product related questions, please contact support prior to purchasing: Contact Us

  • 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!

Amazing. Car initially had little power, not very responsive, and odd shift patterns.

After 20 minutes and the full flash I could not believe how much had changed. Shifts at 6500rpm instead of 5000rpm now. Immediately responds to throttle and maintains power. Very good at anticipating your next move and can easily give you the power you want, when you want it.

I had to relearn my gas pedal just to drive it but once I got it down, and focused on mpg I was able to get 48mpg on highway!

Just a pure joy to drive. If you have any car able to flashed by Trifecta, just DO it. Worth every penny. I'm hoping the new Chevy Cruze is compatible because I will definitely upgrade. I can't say enough good.
