  • 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!

About 2014--2018 Cadillac CTS - 2.0L Turbo - Advantage

TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2014--2018+ Cadillac CTS vehicle software recalibration (reflash) for vehicles utilizing the 2.0L Turbocharged engine with either the 8 speed automatic transmission (8L45 / RPO:MYA) or 6 speed automatic transmission (6L45 / RPO: MYA). Rear wheel drive (RWD) and all wheel drive (AWD) variants are supported. Specific gains over factory calibration are up to (SAE corrected) 52lb-ft of torque and 36 horsepower, with peak gains clocking in at up to 40lb-ft of torque and 22 horsepower, with no vehicle modifications beyond the calibration.


TRIFECTA's 2014--2018+ Cadillac CTS recalibration is complimented by a fully developed 8-speed or 6-speed transmission calibration to support the increased power delivery profile and to offer dramatically improved driving characteristics from everyday driving maneuvers to track performance. The complete powertrain calibration also includes ESC (Stabilitrak) and, for all wheel drive (AWD) equipped models, TCCM (transfer case control module) program enhancements.
With the current generation of TRIFECTA's flash loader solutions and the optional TRIFECTA Transparency featureset, when flashing your vehicle, the TRIFECTA flash loader does not increment the ECM write counter or increment entries in the flash history.

2014 CTS Performance Edition 2.0 Turbo

Running the Trifecta tune, and I am very happy with the increase in performance! Very noticeable. If you own the same vehicle, you should buy this tune!

Been running this tune for four days now and boy am I enjoying it. The transmission, in sport, holds the gear for longer, delivers boost much quicker and delivers a nice shove in my back when accelerating vigorously. The transmission also seems to shift a bit faster and, even better, downshifts at better times (e.g. it downshifts earlier coming around a corner and I don't have to wait for the downshift after I am going straight).


It is genuinely money well spent and I am very glad I added this tune. It has changed my car from being boring and, often times, annoying to being enjoyable and peppy to drive. I would not hesitate to order another tune from Trifecta if I get another GM vehicle.
