    Very Impressed with the new performance! The engine is much more responsive than stock, particularly in 5th or 6th gears. When in stock mode, and 5th or 6th (manual trans) you had to be aware of your speed and of the terrain, or you had NO power. Now the little engine pulls willingly above 2000rpm. Second gear is FUN, and will take you past 55mph in a hurry. Third gear pulls almost as well as 2nd, above 3000rpm. Excellent throttle response, excellent acceleration in all gears, at all rpm, and at all throttle positions. The Trifecta tune for the 1.4L Cruze was well thought out and well executed. Thank you for turning my little econobox into a FUN machine to drive! Tom

    Trifecta's software for the GM 2.0 turbo engine is terrific! My bachelors degree is in mechanical engineering from General Motors Institute (now called Kettering University) and I have been working on numerous GM vehicles for many years. The Trifecta tune is the best performance product I have used in 40 years of tuning! If GM was smart, they would hire Trifecta Performance to optimize the Cadillac ATS and other vehicles....

    First, my apologies to all involved on the trouble with getting the tune file. My wife decided to use an email address I'd deep sixed some time back.   I installed the tune on her 2007 Solstice GXP over the weekend. I was blown away at how much power it picked up. She drove it and came back with a one word review. "DAMN!"   Momma's happy so I'm happy. Thanks, Trifecta.

    Made worlds of difference in our 2007 Solstice GXP 5 sp. Stock the car is rated 260HP/260Trq at the crank. After your budget tune I paid to have a 3 run Dyno here in our area. At the wheels, 280.97 HP/321Trq. Nuff said! WOW!!!!!!!!

    Just installed this on my recently purchased 2008 saturn sky redline. Wow is all I can say. Magnificent tune, don't know how much power is still in this 4 banger but this tune really woke it up. Do it you won't regret it.

    I would just like to state that my experience with trifecta was exellent. I have a 08 cobalt ss turbo black in color. My mods are: Hahns cool ram intake Hahns charge piping Hahns Inter cooler Hahns Cat con downpipe Hahns Street cat back exhaust Clutchmasters stage 3 with aluminium flywheel Gms1 I got the select a tune which i chose to get on my cruise control button, best option to have lol I wondered how much more power i would get over gms1. Well now at 40 km-hr at 2000rmp the tire light up and i mean light up. When the boost reaches 23 psi wow!!! the car is so much stronger throughout every gear. The gms1 tune looses alot of power pass 5000rpm the trifecta tune keeps pulling!!! Very happy customer!! My ultimate goal is the s20g turbo upgrade now that i have seen that my car can handle 24psi spikes and hold 23 psi, my clutch and transmission can hold that much torque. It is time to get it!! No issue to engine light no codes after tune!!!

    I have to say that I am super pleased with this tune and how much of a difference it has made to my car. IT IS shifting faster and boy can u tell a difference in power, the motor sounds a bit different at idle more aggressive *REMEMBERS THIS IS A V8 NOT V6 GHOST CAM* it just gave it a better sound and idk what to say it's just amazing how much better the car is, I asked how much it gained.. Trifecta thinks it gained prob 30rwhp WITH my mods, which is SLP long tube ceramic headers, 3 in cats, Full K&N air filter and box, magnaflow cat back 2.5in sport exhaust. I wasn't expecting the difference that occurred but it's definitely good... now I just have to data log the car but I doubt there is anything to improve on. I just wanna thank the Trifecta team with the excellent customer service and amazing tune... anyone thinking or searching for a tune these are the guys to go with I have no regrets, kudos to Trifecta!!!

    So I bought my tune back in December and between the weather and just being a wuss, I finally got around to installing the tune today. I did not previously own a laptop, so I found a free Sony Vaio from circa 2002 and installed Windows XP Pro with all updates (high priority and optional including .Net). It has a Pentium III processor with a 15GB HDD, and 128MB of RAM . . . but previously I read that if it can run XP than it can run EZ Flash no problem. Well in the end it installed the tune with no issues, even on that ancient hardware, but it definitely reinforced the need get a more modern machine. This dinosaur took about 1 minute per 1% of the tuning operation, so all told with the transparency mode enabled it took about 2 hours to install the tune total. I didn't really expect this, so I had sat in the driver's seat with the door shut (with an extension cord running to the laptop out the passengers side back to the house) and was afraid to move/open the door/etc. for 2 hours. I thought my bladder was going to explode!!! So lesson learned, use a computer with decent, modern specs. So yeah if anyone has a spare, cheap laptop laying around that they want to donate to the "Chad doesn't want to sit in his car for 2 hours while tuning fund" let me know! Now to the fun part. After installing the tune and enabling transparency mode, I cleared the TCM adaptives and decided to take her for a short spin. All I can say is WOW. I started her off in Sport Mode (I've got an automatic) and the car finally drives like I hoped it would after installing my Vararam CAI and Vmax ported throttle body. I asked for firmer shifts and in Sport Mode it feels really aggressive, but not to the point of being annoying. I did another couple of miles in Drive just for comparisons sake, and Drive now feels like Sport Mode used to so I may actually use Drive now! (I previously drove it exclusively in Sport Mode). So now I'm going to drive it around for the week and shoot for some datalogs next weekend.

    Just finished flashing my car and WOW! What a difference! This was a Jekyll and Hyde transformation! Disabled the TC and screeched the tires in second gear @60 mph. Massive torque at the low end and the boost doesn't fall off at 3500 like before. More datalogs getting done this weekend. Can't say enough about this tune. Every day is a "sleeper mode enabled" day. You guys are awesome!

    Really happy with the tune for my CTS V Sport. I have been also very impressed by level of customer support that the Trifecta has given to their customers pre and post purchase. A few customers requested a modified tune for our vehicles and Trifecta made it available to all of us at no additional cost. The tune itself is amazing. The boost comes on earlier and peaks at 18psi. The transmission calibration really helps the Aisen 8 speed. I don't find it hunting for the right gear constantly and it also holds gears a lot better. The tune is straightforward to apply and can be easily removed. Money well spent.

    WOW !!!!!   The best money I've ever spent on an car. Not only did I get more power, my gas mileage has gone up about 20%.   Thank you.

    I got the hardware on Wednesday and programmed the car last night. Big difference, the trans program alone is worth the money and tuning effort. Just wanted to say thanks for the quick turnaround. This car is a lease, but when i get a new one next year i will be looking for a tune for that one as well!

    The tune is like night and day! It really makes the car fun to drive in performance mode and eco mode is very pleasant on the wallet. The trans calibration is 10 times better than stock. You guys hit the nail on the head with this tune!

    Hello, my name is Erick and I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze RS LTZ 1.4l Turbo.  I build cars for a living and I want to keep my Cruze completely stock but I was looking for a little more throttle response and a little more power.  I contacted Trifecta to ask some questions about the tune including, can the Dealer see it? Does it leave foot marks so the Dealer knows it has been tuned?  Does it help with gas mileage?  I do not want to lose my warranty.  Steve at Trifecta reinsured me that I would not have those issues and that I would be really happy with this tune.  So I ordered the Advantage+ tune.  Wow was I surprised!  They have super-fast shipping, super easy download and even easier upload into the Cruze.  Out on my first drive after installing the tune and I already noticed a HUGE difference in power and throttle response.  It shifts so much better and firmer also I do not have that "No boost" felling anymore when the AC is on high and the best part of it all is that I am up 5 MPG over my average.  I have now put about 2000 miles on this tune and I could never be happier, passing on the freeway is easier and safer, Cruze is faster, and my MPG is up.  Thank you so much Steve at Trifecta for all of your help and service.

    If you have a V sport you need this tune!!! It transforms the V sport into a total beast!!! Well worth the money! The ability to leave the touring mode stock was really important for me for those weekend trips with the wife and kid. The Trifecta team was amazing and answered all of my questions in a timely manner.

    I have had my tune for quite some time now and have been meaning to leave a review for months!!! I absolutely love what this tune did for an already amazing car. I was completely blown away by the immediate difference in throttle response and the transmission shifts so much more aggressively but appropiately. You never feel like there is anything that has been modified that will cause a problem with driveability either. Basically this tune releases all the potential of this car without needing any other modifications. I had zero problems installing it using the supplied instructions and cable. I have a lot of boosted and modified vehicles and this is the most power for the money I have ever gotten. If you have this car you need this product!
