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

(1 review)
$688.00
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 Elite Calibration offers premium tier-1 support. With this product, customers can request specific calibration changes and support for third party hardware. Remote-tuning services are offered with this tier.

Had some initial problems with the EZ scan not detecting my vehicle. In less than 24 hours Trifecta Support resolved this issue for everybody and did an update for the EZ scan download on their website. After that, they made my calibration for my car and within about 3 hours it was available for download. Download to vehicle was no problem at all, for me only took about  10-15 minutes total. Just got done taking the car for the initial drive after, and words cannot describe the difference it has made to the vehicle. IT IS NIGHT AND DAY!!! The only modification I had done to it previously was an AEM cold air intake (highly recommended for this car btw) which did give it a boost and loudish intake noise. With the tune now it pulls SO hard from a dig, which it never had before (I think like 70 ft lbs from a stop). On the test drive I turned traction control and stablitrak off and actually roasted the tires at the light. Trifecta was a huge help from the timing of purchase to tuning of vehicle, support is always willing to help.

Hands down get this tune..........nothing else to say!
