(2 reviews)
$398.00 $418.00
TRIFECTA 2018--2019 Chevrolet Equinox
1.5L Turbo (RPO: LYX)
6 speed automatic
Detailed power gains (measured at the wheels, dynojet chassis dyno):
1.5L Turbo gains: up to +35 ft-lbs torque, +48 horsepower (peak gains of up to 14 ft-lbs torque, +38 horsepower)
 
TRIFECTA presents: Chevrolet Equinox (1.5L Turbo) MY2018--2019 Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming (flash tune)
TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2018--2019 Chevrolet Equinox vehicle software recalibration (reflash) for vehicles utilizing the 1.5L Turbo (RPO: LYX) 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 2018--2019 Equinox 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 2018--2019 Equinox 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 2018--2019 Equinox 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 2018--2019 Equinox 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 Advantage Calibration is meant for 100% stock vehicles. No individualizations or support for parts that do not function on factory calibration (if you have such modifications, be sure to check with us prior to placing order).

  • 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.

  • For product related questions, please contact support prior to purchasing: Contact Us

  • 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!

Love this tune. This is how the car should have come. Shifts much earlier meaning you lose that ‘mushy’ throttle response. Definitely has more get up and go as the tires break traction off the line easier. Overall just a much better feel especially with 94 octane. Don’t buy this to try and make your Equinox a race car buy it because you want it to have a better overall drive experience. Oh and my cold morning engine shudder is gone when partially warmed and stopped at a traffic light. Anyone who has experienced this know what I mean. It’s like the car is trying autostop but can’t make up it’s mind. In my experience totally worth it. Thanks again guys!

This is my second vehicle tuned by Trifecta. My first vehicle was a 1.4L Sonic so I knew when I bought the 1.5L Equinox the tune was going to be a no-brainer. The tune waking up the car would be an understatement. Initial pedal depression is very sensitive. Each shift was crisp and purposeful just as Trifecta advertises. The most drastic improvements are in the first few gears that felt dead before the tune. Cruising speeds of 40+ mph are similar in transmission reaction to stock tune but it definitely pulls harder once it drops a gear.  I activated AWD and punched it from a stop and it just launches. A truly amazing difference with just a software change. If you are even slightly considering this tune I highly recommend you pull the trigger - you will absolutely not be disappointed.
