  • 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).

Didn't know what to expect...but pleasantly surprised!  While I definitely noticed a difference off the line with quicker acceleration and better throttle mapping (tune holds the gears longer but still shifts smoothly), where I really noticed the difference was at freeway speeds.  When wanting to pass another vehicle or merge onto the freeway, the cIMG_3579.thumb.JPG.82df5153fe02eec1f52dbe6edfb3f172.JPGar's acceleration is much, much stronger!  I could be going 50-60, pass another vehicle, and before you know it I'm going 90+.  Since the shifts are still smooth and the TourX's ride is already good, you don't even notice how quickly you've accelerated.  Highly recommend.  Super easy to install and when I had a question about installation, Trifecta was quick to get back with me and guide me in the right direction.

Consistent with other Trifecta tunes I've had, this one for my 2018 Regal TourX has transformed the driving experience. Much better throttle response overall, and especially at freeway speeds. The tune has improved the shift characteristics dramatically; lower gears are held longer during moderate acceleration around town. Once in a higher gear, a slight blip on the throttle gets a decisive response. Tip in is smooth. Much easier to modulate at all vehicle speeds. Excellent, smooth acceleration when needed. Fuel economy is very good, though I have no real reference since I switched to winter tires right after I bought the car. Even so, I think 25 or so around town and around 30 on the freeway in winter is good for a larger car like this. Very smooth and responsive overall, with much improved performance, while retaining the Buick's serene nature while cruising, that's an accomplishment. Highly recommended.

If Buick had this tune from the factory, they would still be making the Tour-x.

Could use better u tube support.

 

 

Response from TRIFECTA:

Thank you for the feedback Kevin!

While we may sometimes monitor messages posted or sent through channels such as YouTube, official support is offered only through our website, via https://www.trifectaperformance.com/support

We hope you enjoy your TourX as much as we do ours!

Have the tune installed for the last 5 months. Cannot comment on the fuel economy since I installed the tune within a week of getting the car and installed bigger tires. I am not sure how reliable the onboard computer is, but in mixed traffic it indicates about 25mpg in average since the tune is loaded. I like how responsive the car is and the longer gears. Makes the car overall more fun to drive. Trifecta service was great since I experienced some trouble during the first load. I like that Trifecta offers continuous support and will let you know when there is an updated file available (wondering what the current August 2020 update is about).
