    TRIFECTA: LE2 Engine - Intake Manifold

    Also, note there appears to be an internal PCV system like the Gen1, and also this intake manifold has a LOT of oil in it (this engine has less than 1000 miles on it). It makes us wonder if the oil ingestion has to do with the piston problems the LE2 has? Could a catch can help?
  2. We started with a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze hatch. We took the original engine and transmission out, and swapped in an engine and transmission from a 2017 Chevrolet Malibu Premier. This is the 2.0L turbocharged engine coupled with the 9T50 front wheel drive 9 speed automatic transmission. With proper calibration work, this engine and transmission in its stock form can deliver about 300HP at the flywheel. This equates to around 240HP at the wheels, which is about 70WHP more than the LE2 can produce with a proper tune. We didn't stop there, though. We also installed aftermarket cams to increase airflow and fuel pump supply. And we added our "T40" turbocharger, which produced darn near 400HP when we tested on a Chevrolet Malibu recently. We have an aftermarket front mount intercooler for tuned up 2.0T engines, a cold air intake, and a custom dual-outlet exhaust system. The challenges were many in building this car. Which axles to use? Which mounts? Where to move the radiator to make room for the turbocharger? The wiring! The engine may fit in this car like it was designed for it, but there couldn't be much more different with the wiring harness on the Cruze vs the Malibu. But, in the end, it all works, as if Chevrolet themselves built the car. You push the start button and the engine roars to life through the custom exhaust system with an aggressive yet tasteful note. It may seem like the little things, but it's the little things that matter: The gauges work. The heater works. The brakes work. Shift it into Drive, and you're off. The 9sp automatic transmission peels through the gears smoothly. Put the pedal down, and hold on. The car is a work in progress, there's still a few things that need to be done with it (like fabbing a bracket for the ECM instead of using zip ties lol), but make no mistake, the Cruze has entered a new age.

    TRIFECTA: Go big(gest), or go home.

    Initial testing puts this on par with a tuned LE2, and will cost a heck of a lot less than it would cost to trade up to one. Stay tuned as we move forward on this project!
  5. The 2019 model year for the Chevrolet Sonic is largely a “carryover” since the 2017 exterior and interior update, with one key change: the 1.8L I4 (RPO: LUW/LWE) engine is no longer available. The TRIFECTA performance calibration for the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic and 2019 GMC Canyon is unchanged versus the 2012 through 2018 Chevrolet Sonic product. Below is a list of feature highlights: Gains of up to +51 ft-lbs and +44 WHP Full transmission recalibration (automatic transmission vehicles) “No Lift Shift” feature retains boost through performance shifts (manual transmission vehicles) Two way Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes (DSVM): Sport, and Eco Support for aftermarket modifications and hardware Full restore-to-stock functionality included Product updates provided at no charge (includes support for OE software updates) To order your TRIFECTA performance recalibration for your 2019 Chevrolet Sonic, please visit our store: https://www.trifectaperformance.com/store/category/125-14l-turbo/
