  • 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!

TRIFECTA presents: Chevrolet Silverado / GMC Sierra (Gen V V8, 5.3L, 6.2L) MY2014--2018+ Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming (flash tune)


TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2014--2018+ Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra vehicle software recalibration (reflash) for vehicles utilizing either the 5.3L V8 or the 6.2L V8 with either the 8 speed automatic transmission (8L90 / RPO:M5U) or the 6 speed automatic transmission (6L80 / RPO:MYC). Two wheel drive (2WD), four wheel drive (4WD) and all wheel drive (AWD) variants are supported. Specific gains over factory calibration are up to (uncorrected) 45lb-ft of torque and 19 horsepower with no vehicle modifications beyond the updated software calibration.


TRIFECTA's 2014--2018+ full size truck recalibration is complimented by a fully developed 6-speed or 8-speed (depending on application) automatic transmission calibration to support the increased power delivery profile and to offer dramatically improved driving characteristics from everyday driving maneuvers to towing and hauling. The complete powertrain calibration also includes ESC (Stabilitrak) and, for four/all wheel drive (4WD/AWD) equipped models, TCCM (transfer case control module) program enhancements.


All 2014--2018+ full size truck calibrations also include TRIFECTA's exclusive "tri-mode" DSVM (driver selectable vehicle modes). Choose between TRIFECTA Sport mode, tow/haul mode, or ECO mode, on the fly using existing vehicle controls (see full details below).


Specifications of the TRIFECTA Performance 2014--2018+ full size truck ECM software reprogramming:


-Fuel economy is improved (up to 2.4MPG observed), 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
-Full flex-fuel / E85 features retained
-Tested on all available grades of fuel (87, 89, 91, 92, and 93 octane) and ethanol blends from 10% to 85%

TRIFECTA Performance Active Fuel Management (PAFM) (Advantage+ or Elite package)


The L83 offers V8/V4 mode. GM has succeeded in making V8/V4 transitions (AFM, or Active Fuel Management as GM calls it) extremely smooth, such that in most cases they can't be noticed. However, some customers may have exhaust or other modifications that cause the truck to produce an undesirable exhaust note while in V4 mode. TRIFECTA exclusively offers three options with regard to adjusting AFM parameters with this product:

  • AFM available/active in all drive modes (default)
  • AFM disabled in Sport mode
  • AFM disabled entirely

Advantage+ and Elite customers may request AFM behavior changes when ordering their product.

Specifications of the TRIFECTA Performance 2014--2018+ full size truck 6-Speed / 8-Speed automatic transmission TCM calibration software reprogramming:


-Added vehicle drive modes (TF Sport, tow/haul, and stock)
-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


Supplementary Featureset of the TRIFECTA Performance 2014--2018+ full size truck powertrain calibration software reprogramming:


-TRIFECTA Interactive Driver Selectable Vehicle Mode (Select-a-Tune MKII):


-Cruise System Armed = ECO
-Cruise System Disarmed = Sport
-Tow/Haul = TRIFECTA Enhanced Tow/Haul Mode (Overrides Cruise System Selection)


-TRIFECTA ECO Mode: Up to 2.4 MPG improvement by dedicated TRIFECTA ECO mode prioritizing fuel economy in engine calibration profile and transmission shift strategy
-Alternative Driver Profiles layout included with individualized calibration
-TRIFECTA Octane Adaptive MKII featureset will bias for lower octane fuels (multi dimensional airflow knock and timing decay tables, not just high/low)
-Improved fuel economy while towing with alternative TOW/HAUL mode
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).

Worth Every Penny

This tune is worth the money for the improved 6-speed transmission performance alone. Shift speed and timing is greatly improved (without being harsh) and the low speed shift pattern is much more logical- no more surging in stop and go traffic. I can also feel a marked power increase with better throttle response at any speed and less interference from torque management. Before, the stock ECU seemed to slowly ramp up power when I hit the gas, now the power is instantly on. The truck even runs and sounds better in v4 mode, something I didn't expect. Gas mileage is the same as before the tune. I didn't want to sacrifice the truck's decent mileage for more power and it turns out I didn't have to. I'm completely happy with the tune and highly recommend it.
