Supplementary Featureset of the TRIFECTA Performance Generation II MY2016--2018+ Chevrolet Cruze powertrain calibration software reprogramming:
-TRIFECTA PASM (Performance Auto Stop Mode):
When the cruise control subsystem is armed (via the steering wheel button), auto-stop works normally, just as it did from the factory. When the cruise control subsystem is disarmed, auto-stop events are re-calibrated with sport and performance strictly in mind (available only with vehicles equipped with cruise control from the factory).
Furthermore, the feature can be enabled and disabled at any time. For example:
If the vehicle is auto-stopped, switching the cruise control subsystem off causes the engine to restart immediately.
If the engine is running because no auto-stop event could occur due to the cruise control system being disabled, enabling it will cause the engine to stop immediately, provided all of the other auto-stop criteria above is met as well.
-TRIFECTA DSVM (Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes):
Modify driving profiles based on the cruise control enable setting (vehicles equipped with cruise control only)
Cruise Control ON (armed) = Vehicle responds to pedal input and shift logic similar to factory programming
Cruise Control OFF (disarmed / TRIFECTA mode) = Vehicle responds more aggressively to throttle input, shifts are optimized for performance*
* - Fuel economy observed in TRIFECTA mode was observed to be similar to original factory fuel economy figures assuming “regular” driving style is adhered to
-TRIFECTA Advanced Zoned Knock Control Algorithm:
Customized operating system enhancements allow for zoning of knock adaptation factors to provide superior dynamic knock detection and control. Allows for operation with improved power profiles under factory-specified minimum fuel requirements (“87 octane” – see owner's manual for full details) as well as fully optimized power with higher octane fuels.
Installation Notes:
-Estimated installation time of ~20 minutes
-Premium fuel is recommended for maximum power output, but not required

The one thing I didn't like about my '17 Cruze was that is just didn't have the get up and go of the '12 GTI it replaced, which I was willing to live with for a much more reliable car. Then I bought my Trifecta Advantage tune and the performance gap between the two closed much more than I expected. I didn't think a little 1.4T could have this much punch, especially with the long economy gears in the 6-speed manual.

Even better, the Advantage tune has the ability to work with more mods than I expected it to. When I bought my upgraded recirculation valve I was certain I was going to have to upgrade to Elite tuning. Not only did I not, but Trifecta got back to me incredibly quick when I asked if an upgrade was needed. The customer service is incredible. 

I'm definitely recommending anyone on the fence about buying this tune do it immediately. Not only for the surprising amount of extra power, but for the excellent customer service that comes with it.

I have tuned at least a dozen cars over the past 10 years with Trifecta's calibrations and they never disappoint!  This 1.4 Gen 2 cruize tune is right up there with my LNF tune. Such a huge increase in twist in such a light car. And when I take long road trips my fuel mileage is well over the factory EPA estimated numbers! This tune made my daily commute a riot!

Best tune money can buy for a second gen cruze. Really wakes it up. Doesn't have a flat power band anymore. Just keeps pulling to redline. They even had support for my gmpp intake. Really like this this tune over a competitors tune. Trifecta has way better customer service than other tuning company's.

I've been loving this tune. The stock programming is lazy and sloppy for both the engine and transmission. Reaching way too far for downshifts, weird boost building, lazy shifts that take so long you'd think it was damaged. This tune fixes all that non sense. The best part is the torque output increase is really substantial, my DWS06s are having a hard time hooking up now from a dead stop. I drove GM 3800 S/C and non S/C cars for years and this tune really makes me feel more at home driving again. I've named the button to disable the tune the "sad mode button" now.

Support is great too, even if you think your question is dumb they will answer and explain themselves / the issue. Installation is really easy, after you do it once you'll wonder why you were worried about it in the first place.

I truly like this tune. My Cruze drives and performs much better. I had to obtain the services of a computer guy in order to install the tune, but it was well worth the effort and the modest added cost.

 

I think my fuel mileage is at least as good as stock, maybe little better, but I'm using 93 octane gas. The added power is really remarkable and I assume this is because the car is turbocharged and the boost is higher with the tune. Shifting is much improved and optimized for performance. Throttle response is crisp and predictable. I now have complete confidence in the car when I need to merge into traffic or pass another vehicle. No more hoping for a proper downshift or worrying about the car missing a beat when I step on the accelerator to accelerate after the auto stop was engaged.

 

I really liked my Cruze before the tune, primarily because of the great fuel economy, the roomy interior (for a compact car), and its good looks. Now the car is really fun to drive and that is a real plus. Now I REALLY like my Cruze. I always look forward to driving the car now that it performs so well.

 

I heartily recommend this tune to those who enjoy a vehicle that is fun to drive.
