    TRIFECTA: More fuel for your direct-injected engine!

    Changing the injectors on the LTG engine isn't as straightforward as changing injectors on most MPFI engines. As you can see, we had to remove the intake manifold to gain access to the fuel rail. Also note how much more "beefy" the fuel rail and injectors are compared to MPFI fuel rails an injectors. That's because SIDI injectors routinely have to operate in the 2000-3000psi range, sometimes beyond 3000psi even. That's compared to 45-60psi on most MPFI rails!
  2. 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. Future or existing TRIFECTA customers interested in purchasing this product may be able to do so through TRIFECTA, please contact our support team for more info! **Please note: A Hardware Support Notification (HSN) from TRIFECTA is merely a statement that we tested the product with our calibration products, and in some cases may include performance data collected and/or ad-hoc comments on the product by TRIFECTA.

  3. 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. Calibration customization, for those who need it Need support for a wicked dual-snorkel cold air intake kit? With TRIFECTA's Elite calibration tier, customized calibration support is available** for modifications which are not compatible with the factory calibration. ** Support for modifications is subject to specific terms and conditions TRIFECTA MY2018+ Chevrolet Equinox Performance Calibration Key Features: - Specific power gains of up to +48 ft-lbs of torque, +49 horsepower measured at the wheels - Dramatically improved drivability characteristics for everyday driving maneuvers - Exclusive Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes ("DSVM") for switching performance profiles on-the-fly - Exclusive Performance Auto Stop Mode ("PASM") for disabling Auto Stop when in Sport mode - Installs in about 20 minutes - Flash back to stock functionality included For more info, see here: https://www.trifectaperformance.com/store/product/2401-2018-chevrolet-equinox-20l-turbo-advantage/

    TRIFECTA: The 2.0L Turbo 300HP Cruze

    1.4L vs 2.0L turbocharged engines Looking at the numbers from the 1.4T engine vs the 2.0T engine, you can see why people that want to go really fast with a Cruze might want to do this. The 1.4T engine, from the factory produces 139HP (the new 1.4T “LE2” engine produces 154HP), and the 2.0T engine produces anywhere from 220HP to 272HP depending on which engine and variant is used. Put an aftermarket calibration on these engines and they approach 200-220HP, and 300-330HP, respectively. (Source: media.gm.com) So, let's swap the engine already! Great! So we know we want a 2.0L turbo engine in our Cruze, let's just swap one in! Unfortunately, it's not even close to being that simple. The 1.4T and the 2.0T are of different physical sizes, and are of varying architecture, specifically being that the earlier 2.0T (the LNF/LHU engine) has the turbocharger on the opposite side of the engine as the 1.4T does. The newer 2.0T (LTG engine) has the turbocharger on the correct side, but still has the challenge of being physically larger than the 1.4T. Right off the bat, custom engine mounts would have to be developed, coolant and oil hoses would need to be customized, new exhaust would have to be fabricated, front to back, wiring harness would have to be customized. Now, we would surmise that swapping in a 2.0T (LHU engine) from a Buick Verano, being that the Verano is of the same chassis as the Cruze, might allow the use of factory harnesses and parts that would make the swap much easier, but every element listed above should still be of concern. But that's just the engine. Then there's the transmission. Particularly in front wheel drive applications like the Cruze, GM has no less than eight different transmissions supporting varying levels of torque. The Cruze with the 1.4T is equipped with the 6T40 transmission, and the Verano, for instance, is equipped with the 6T50 transmission. One might get away without swapping the transmission, but for completeness's sake, we're going to assume this needs to be swapped as well. Then there's ECU swap, the potential for needed customized drive axles, upgraded radiator size, etc. Cost of engine swap In any event, let's just assume, for simplicity's sake that the entire engine, transmission, harness, and ECU can just be swapped from the Verano. We couldn't find any specific salvage pricing on this, but we'd expect it to be in the $2000-$4000 range for all of the components required. Then there's the labor of doing the swap. Maybe an enthusiast would undertake this on their own, in which case tangible labor cost would be zero. Miscellaneous parts, exhaust fabrication, etc., we estimate would add another $2000 or so to the project cost. But then there's the resale value of the vehicle itself. If someone were to perform a swap like this on a Cruze, its value would plummet. This vehicle, even assuming it ran perfectly, would require a special buyer when the time came to sell it. The oldest Cruzes available in the United States sell for between $8500 and $15000. We'd expect a swap like this to cause a 30% loss in value, so, let's say $2500 just to pick a round number. Total cost of engine swap: about $7500 or more Yes, we said it: buy a Malibu instead of a Cruze As mentioned above, this is a bold idea. Most current or potential Cruze owners, right off the bat would scoff at this idea. Buying a “family hauler” instead of the more-sporty Cruze?? After all, Malibus are built for the rental car agencies, right? A Malibu lacks style at all. It's big. It's heavy. It's slow. There's no aftermarket for it. And it's more expensive. However, starting with the 2016 model year, Chevrolet introduced both an all-new Cruze and all-new Malibu. The aesthetic differences between the two are much fewer than with the previous generation. Malibu vs Cruze Indeed, Chevrolet is now using fairly common design language between the Cruze, Malibu, and the larger-yet Impala. If we are to assume that the looks of the all-new Malibu are acceptable to a potential Cruze owner, let's move on to a more detailed analysis of the likenesses and differences between the two models. Performance: You can get a 2.0T with a Malibu. And also an 8 speed automatic. The new Cruze, for 2016, only offers one engine: the 1.4L Turbo LE2 engine, which produces 154HP and 177 lb-ft of torque. The new Malibu offers two engines (exc. the Hybrid model), a 1.5L Turbo LFV engine (163HP / 184lb-ft torque), and a 2.0L Turbo LTG engine (250HP / 260lb-ft torque). For the purposes of this writing, however, we are only going to look at the 2.0L Turbo engine. While the fact the Malibu doesn't offer a manual transmission (whereas the Cruze does) would be a deal-breaker for some people, the truth is most Cruzes are built and sold with an automatic transmission. A 6 speed automatic transmission. The Malibu, in contrast, with the 2.0L Turbo engine, is equipped with a smooth shifting 8 speed automatic transmission (also used in the Buick LaCrosse, and the Cadillac XT5). And for the 2017 model year, the Malibu 2.0L Turbo is stepping up to GM's all-new 9 speed automatic transmission. Not only does the Malibu 2.0T offer 96HP and 83lb-ft of torque more than the Cruze, with the 8 speed automatic transmission, there is a greater gear ratio spread which also contributes to both quicker acceleration compared to a 6 speed automatic, but also improved highway fuel economy vs a 6 speed automatic. How does the rest of the car match up? For sake of comparison, we will compare a 2016 Cruze LT Automatic/RS Package/Sun and Sound Package with a 2016 Malibu 2LT. For the Cruze, the LT Automatic/RS Package/Sun and Sound package is by far the most popular model at the dealerships, and the Malibu 2LT is the lowest trim level which is equipped with the 2.0T. Also, this gives us an apples-to-apples comparison. Don't get us wrong. The Malibu is a bigger car than the Cruze. It's more spacious in every way, but it also weighs more. But not THAT much more. The Cruze, in its lightest form weighs in at about 2600lbs. The Malibu weighs in at about 3100lbs. For those that love sunroofs, the Malibu's sunroof is quite superior. It's roughly double the size of the Cruze's sunroof (though only the front half of it opens). The Malibu comes with leather at this trim level, whereas the Cruze does not. The Malibu comes with 18” wheels, the Cruze with 16” wheels. Both have disc brakes on all corners. One area we feel the Cruze is superior, however, is in the handling-feel department. The Cruze has a stiffer ride, and experiences less “body roll” in the corners than its larger brethren, the Malibu. Economy-wise, the Cruze is rated up to 42MPG, and the Malibu up to about 35MPG with the 2.0T. Cost comparison At the end of the day, it comes down to cost. The Malibu is more expensive, for certain, but by significantly less than what it would cost to do an engine swap. According to Chevrolet.com, the 2016 Cruze LT Automatic, with the RS package, and the Sun and Sound package (which requires other packages such as the Convenience package) has an MSRP of $25335. The 2016 Malibu 2LT “base model”, which is similarly equipped to the Cruze LT Automatic, with the RS package, and the Sun and Sound package is $29495. This is a difference of only $4160. More car, a heck of lot more power, with similar styling. However, we found, at the time of purchase for both our Cruze 1.4T and our Malibu 2.0T, there were significantly better incentives available on the Malibu. At that time, one could lease a Malibu Premier, with every option under the sun, far beyond even the Malibu 2LT's option load-out, for about $275/mo and $3600 down payment, for 24 months. This works out to a total cost of $10,200 for two years. The Cruze, in contrast, was offered with the same lease terms for about $265/mo, and $2400 down payment. This works out to a total cost of $8760. This is only a difference of $1440 over the course of two years, and this is for a Malibu that is even more well-equipped than the Malibu 2LT we used for comparison. Were one to compare terms on the Malibu 2LT, it might actually be cheaper to acquire the Malibu than the Cruze! Conclusion We're making a very strong case for the Malibu vs the Cruze, here, for those that like the Cruze styling but want more power than the Cruze has to offer. Both the Cruze and the Malibu are especially exciting vehicles to drive with an aftermarket calibration, but, we have to be honest, the Malibu 2.0T with an aftermarket calibration blows the doors off a Cruze with an aftermarket calibration. Hence, we call the tuned Malibu 2.0T, “The 300HP Cruze”. Those considering a new Cruze, particularly those that want to go fast, should take a hard look at the Malibu. With the previous generation Malibu, we would have agreed with you: Are you kidding? But the new Malibu is a world's worth of improvement over the previous generation, and the differences between the Cruze and Malibu have been largely blurred. As is the pricing difference.

  9. 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.
