See our original release here: TRIFECTA presents: Chevrolet Malibu (1.5L, 2.0L) MY2016+ Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming (flash tune) Improved feature-set: 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. 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 Transmission firmness improvements: Shifts remain comfortable under cruising conditions, but are more firm at higher throttle conditions This calibration update is now available for all current TRIFECTA customers at no charge, and will be included in future purchases for new TRIFECTA customers with the 2016+ Chevrolet Malibu with the 1.5L turbocharged engine!
