  1. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V6 (LGX) product offers the same performance and features the 2016 model year product offers, including: * Up to 17 lb-ft of torque gain, and up to 23 horsepower gain * Performance AFM mode (formerly known as “select-a-AFM”) - disables AFM (V4 mode, if applicable) entirely while vehicle is in SPORT mode for improved exhaust note and responsiveness * Retains use of all drive modes, winter / snow / ice mode retains factory characteristics * Linear and attentive power delivery and throttle response * Progressive and purposeful downshifting for top performance under any driving condition * Support for aftermarket modifications available Estimated availability: Early February 2017 (manual transmission support available now) Read our original Camaro V6 (LGX) product release: TRIFECTA presents: 6th Gen Chevrolet Camaro MY2016+ 3.6L (LGX) Powertrain Calibration Read more about the NEW LGX V6 engine in the Camaro: TRIFECTA: The next generation of V6s from GM (RPO: LGW, LGX, and LGZ)
  2. The 2017 model is a game changer, though. The 2017 V6-equipped Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon, while externally, is identical to the earlier models (save for a new V6 badge on the tailgate), in fact received two major powertrain updates: the new 3.6L LGZ engine, and the 8L45 8 speed automatic transmission. For our write-up on the comparison between the older V6 and the new one, see our article here: TRIFECTA: The next generation of V6s from GM (RPO: LGW, LGX, and LGZ) Right off the bat, we noticed that the transmission shift strategy is improved. With the addition of two gears and a wider gear ratio-spread, the new 8 speed transmission is much more capable at finding the ideal gear to be in, depending on what the driver wants to do. Downshifts are more progressive (though we patently dislike the detent in the accelerator pedal at the end of its travel, the threshold of which must be passed to get the transmission to downshift to the lowest possible gear), and gear changes are smooth and efficient. Furthermore, all of this and the transmission allows the vehicle to run at a lower RPM, improving fuel economy. Out of the box, the new LGZ engine (which is a variant of the 3.6L LGX engine offered in the 2016+ Chevrolet Camaro and most 2016+ Cadillac vehicles) offers 3HP gain over the outgoing LFX engine, and torque is improved by 6 lb-ft. This might not sound like much, but when combined with the more favorable gear ratios the rest of the powertrain offers, the truck accelerates impressively while being able to tow up to 7000 pounds. The LGZ engine also introduces active fuel management (AFM) to the Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon. AFM allows the vehicle to disable two of the cylinders under light load to further improve fuel economy. We found the AFM transitions to be smooth and, frankly almost unnoticeable. We are in the midst of our development cycle for the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon and are working tirelessly to analyze the factory drivability experience to look for ways to make a great truck even greater! Expect to see updates from TRIFECTA as we work through our performance tuning product for the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon, and search for every bit of extra power we can wring out of it!

  6. With the release of the 2016 Cadillac ATS, comes an astonishing number of changes to the vehicle, most of which are not so obvious save but the realigning of the badges on the trunk. However, beneath the covers, it's practically a new car. The most dramatic change (aside from the introduction of the ATS-V) is in the form of adding two gears to the automatic transmission. After all, more gears is better, right? In adding to the transmission, Cadillac's focus was largely on improving economy by allowing for lower RPMs on the freeway for which they achieved very well. However, our calibration engineers felt there was something lost in the way the car feels with the extra gears (versus the 6sp automatic). Excessive throttle input is required to get a desired downshift, and when it finally came about, it always felt like too many gears were dropped. With TRIFECTA, the car feels as though it instictually knows what the driver wants as they roll into the pedal. Gears peel off intuitively, and the turbocharger responds in concert. Pedal action to vehicle response, it goes from being an ON/OFF switch for Luxury vs Performance to a gradient - an infinite "middle ground", with the original character of the vehicle retained at the lightest and heaviest pedal input. For those who use the Sport mode and enjoy the predictive shift control logic, TRIFECTA's seemless integration with this feature provides a truly thrilling experience. But what about power? Does it go faster? With TRIFECTA's modest bump in horsepower and torque output (2.0L Turbocharged engine, up to 36HP and 52lb-ft torque, measured at the wheels), slamming the pedal to the floor results in an instant feeling of "Yeah, that's the way the car should be." However, we don't expect to have our words taken for it. Effective immediately, in limited quantity, and for a limited time, those interested in experiencing TRIFECTA in their stock 2016 Cadillac ATS 2.0L Turbo may request a DEMO calibration (speed limited to 85MPH) at absolutely no charge, and no obligation (2013 - 2015 Cadillac ATS 2.0L Turbo calibrations will be available at a future date). After processing the request for the DEMO calibration, TRIFECTA's flash loader device will be shipped at no charge, and the DEMO calibration will be made available. Regardless of whether the full product is eventually purchased, the flash loader device does not need to be returned, ever.
