  1. At this preliminary stage, we've installed the K&N Intake system on our test fleet, and have begun assessing for initial vehicle performance, quality, driveability, obvious issues, etc. So far, we've amassed a good number of miles and have not had any issues with it when paired with the TRIFECTA calibration. This intake is designed for a stock vehicle, running the stock calibration, so we do not foresee any issues using it with the TRIFECTA calibration, but as the airflow dynamics with our calibration are different than the factory calibration, it would be responsible to fully test the intake system with our calibration over a longer period of time, under different environmental conditions, while collecting performance data. We will release additional support notices as we collect additional data for this and other aftermarket modifications.
  2. TRIFECTA Performance

    TRIFECTA: Magnuson Supercharged Escalade

  3. While not required with existing TRIFECTA CTS VSport calibration, this application-specific calibration offers the best experience with the Corsa exhaust system by optimizing engine and transmission characteristics for all drive modes. Tour mode (stock tour mode) delivers a factory driving experience, with a quieter exhaust note, for everyday driving. Sport and Track mode allow the engine to "rev out" further in each gear, combined with increased throttle demand to give off a more performance-oriented exhaust note. ECU dynamic recalibration in Sport / Track mode offers a performance over economy option, offering quicker turbo and vehicle response, a side effect of which is a more aggressive exhaust note at idle. TRIFECTA's powertrain calibrations are tested and validated for various environments, such as cold/heat, elevation, and variations in fuel quality. Each vehicle type is validated on TRIFECTA's test fleet for a minimum of 100,000 miles and 100 hours of full throttle application prior to retail release. We make no compromises in comprehensiveness, safety, and power.

  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.

  8. First there was LF3, then there was the LF4. The LF3 and the LF4 are exciting engines and represent some of the best technology GM has released to date. They share much in common, but there are also many features unique to each. One of the biggest differences are the turbochargers. Those used on the LF3 (designed to spin to 175,000 RPM) are smaller than those found on the LF4, and are designed to provide improved turbine acceleration (spool) at lower RPM to move the heavier CTS VSport. The LF4 turbochargers (designed to spin to 157,500 RPM), in contrast are larger, and designed to allow for greater peak power through improved flow through the larger turbine section at the expense of low RPM spool. This alone largely explains the differences in factory power provided by the LF3 and LF4. Additionally, the LF4 has features you'd expect to find in a track-destined application, such as titanium connecting rods, redesigned oil pan, and more resilient internal components to stand up to the most severe duty track service can dish out. But there are many similarities, one of the most blatant being that the LF3 and the LF4 share the same factory operating system. The three model years worth of LF3 experience built into TRIFECTA's custom operating systems and calibrations have been applied to, and extended for the LF4, and its specific application in the 2016+ Cadillac ATS-V. The TRIFECTA Advantage: Product Development Process From the high deserts to the low lying coastal areas, the frigid North, and the humid South, on public roads, and on race tracks, TRIFECTA's calibrations are developed and thoroughly tested using rigid protocols not unlike those used by auto manufacturers. Our fleet development vehicles have seen hundreds of thousands of miles of service, and countless hours on the chassis dyno. But how does it drive? One area that is given less concern by most is that of drivability. Most aftermarket calibrations shoot for more power. But what about making the vehicle drive better? As we get more and more gears, particularly in our automatic transmissions, improving the drivability experience (without sacrificing economy) becomes an increasingly complex problem to solve. Our specific drivability engineers spend thousands of hours behind the wheel, focused on chasing down any defects in the factory map while designing a thrilling experience without requiring more stops at the fuel station. TRIFECTA, in 20 minutes or less. TRIFECTA products utilize a flash-loader device that will re-calibrate (flash) your vehicle in approximately 20 minutes and always allow returning the vehicle to the stock calibration when needed. TRIFECTA customers always receive the latest factory software updates automatically, and when either factory software updates are made, or calibration updates are made, they are available to those product-specific customers at no charge. Pricing and availability to be announced.
