I purchased my 2017 2.0 Malibu back in April of 2019. It came completely stock. When I jumped in her she had an OK pull and good get up. I thought to myself I needed more. First thing I did was buy a CAI and then I tuned it. Immediately I felt a difference in the torque and could even here the turbo spooling like crazy. My next step was a catless downpipe and muffler delete. After getting it done I hit up trifecta and let them know of  the changes. They immediately responded and asked for a data log. I did so and within a day or two I had my new updated tune. This one definitely gave me the bang for my buck. I’m keeping up with cars I wouldn’t imagine . The exhaust sounds great. And both the soooo and response from the turbo is spectacular. Ive already recommended them for my fellow GM enthusiasts and will continue to do so. Thankyou trifecta!!!!

I purchased the elite tune for my 2.0 Malibu. I am very happy with the tuning options for my add-ons. The car gained a great amount of performance and I am very happy with how it runs. I also love the ability to datalog. The customer service is great. Fast and helpful responses. Definitely would recommend these guys to others!
