More boost for your turbo Equinox While the all-new Chevrolet Equinox 2.0T performs well out of the box, the TRIFECTA recalibration result is nothing short of amazing. The new 9 speed automatic transmission is geared to take full advantage of the power curve of the LTG engine, and with an extra 50 horsepower at the wheels on tap, with TRIFECTA, the Equinox turns into a tire shredding machine. FUN FACT: The engineering team that developed the all-new Equinox product had just wrapped up the Cadillac ATS-V tuning program. Despite just working with a 600HP Cadillac, by the time they were done with the Equinox, they were giggling everytime they took off from a stop with a heavy pedal! 2.0L Turbo LTG dyno (on 91 octane pump gas) (this vehicle is a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox with the 2.0L Turbo LTG engine) - stock wheels/tires Instilling sport in the Equinox's DNA Raw power is great, but how that power is delivered is almost more important. When you're dealing with a transmission that has so many gears, purposeful, intelligent, and confident shifting is critical, as is pedal response. TRIFECTA's driveability engineers worked tirelessly to instill a sporty driving character without making the vehicle feel busy-shifting, laggy, or twitchy. Milder manners, when needed We also understand there may be times when a milder persona is desired. As is found on most of GM's most expensive vehicles, with TRIFECTA, you can switch back to a more docile pedal response and transmission shifting, on the fly, with TRIFECTA's exclusive Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes ("DSVM") feature, using the cruise control button. A show of hands, how many in this room want to be able to disable "auto stop"? "Auto stop", "start stop", or whatever you want to call it, you know what we're talking about. It's when the engine shuts off entirely (and sometimes disconcertingly) when the vehicle comes to a stop. Its meant to help with fuel economy, but in many cases its more of an annoyance, than anything. Some vehicles have a discrete button to disuade the vehicle from auto stopping, but the all-new Equinox is not one of them. With TRIFECTA's exclusive Performance Auto Stop Mode ("PASM"), now you, too, can say to your Equinox, "No sir, I don't want auto stop right now." No, we won't give you a button to tape to the console for this. PASM, like DSVM, is also controlled by the cruise control button.

An HSN** means that the part was installed and tested for correct functionality on a TRIFECTA development vehicle, with the TRIFECTA calibration product, and if any specific calibration changes are necessary to support or optimize it, these changes have been established and finalized. As such, customers wishing to install this part on their vehicle may do so under the Advantage line product and will not require any customization beyond, in some cases, a parts-specific calibration update. The following is the manufacturer's description of the product: “The K&N 63-3097 AirCharger air intake system replaces the restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing on specific Chevrolet Malibu models. K&N air intakes are designed to dramatically reduce air intake restriction as well as smooth and straighten air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air filter assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the original air box space. Air is directed through an aerodynamically engineered intake tube into the engine’s turbo inlet for a guaranteed power gain. The tube accommodates the factory mass air sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install, usually in 90 minutes or less using your vehicle’s existing factory mounting points. This air intake system can be installed easily with common tools.” (For full info, please see the manufacturer's website here: https://www.knfilters.com/mobile/mProduct.aspx?prod=63-3097) In general, our hardware team found the unit to be easy to install, and easily reversible for dealership visits. It increases “intake noise”, so turbocharger “whine” and “bypass” events are more easily heard. The serviceable filter element reduces long term air filter element replacement costs.
