    This is by far the best upgrade I have made to this truck. I have a 2016 canyon and it was nice but had the trans hesitation issues and always felt like it was lagging. After loading the Trifecta tune (which was extremely easy) it's like a whole different truck. I have tried cold air intakes and exhausts but they just make the truck to loud to enjoy. I took all that off and only have a K&N air filter and the Trifecta tune and WOW. It was less expensive and a lot less dirty to do. The Eco mode would have been enough and I would have been happy with that. But Sport is a beast. If your looking for an easy quick upgrade to your truck that actually works. This is it.

    I will keep this short and to the point. Other than a Flowmaster muffler, my 2022 Colorado ZR2 truck is stock in regard to performance and drivetrain and tires. I couldn't be happier with the Advantage+ tune. Living in Colorado Springs at almost 7K feet elevation, the truck was especially underpowered in the thin air. In sport mode with the new tune, it's definitely NOT a racecar but the overall drivability is so much better. The throttle response and shift points just make it much more responsive and I don't feel like I have to try so hard to keep up with the normal flow of traffic. The ability to change modes on the fly is awesome and you can really feel the difference between Eco Mode and Sport Mode on the butt dyno. Even my wife said that she can tell the truck is more responsive from the passenger seat. Buy a Trifecta tune asap!!!!

    I was very hesitant to spend the amount it cost for the 2017--2022 Chevrolet Colorado - 3.6L - Elite tune. I even talked to Trifecta personnel a few times to make sure I understood everything correctly. I only had one issue loading the tune which was that the program doesn't support the Windows OS that I have on my Surface, once I used my regular laptop everything went very smoothly. I did find an article about the modified OS for Surface systems on Trifecta's site. I have to say I haven't ever had a time where I performed a standalone upgrade o a vehicle that produced the amount of performance I got with this tune. The reason I picked the Elite tune was because I will be making further upgrades to the exhaust and input and Trifecta will modify my tune as many times as needed for the different upgrades. I'm extremley pleased and I'll sugest Trifecta to anyone wanting to improve performance which also includes towing performance.

    I will admit, I was quite skeptical as to what the tuners at Trifecta would be able to pull off.  I am pleasantly surprised!  I have only had my '13 Traverse LS AWD tuned for a week, and I could tell a difference the moment I gave it gas!  This thing HAULS!  I do like that I can deactivate it, otherwise, my foot would be in it all the time!     Thank you, Trifecta!  Another happy customer!

    No disappointed here.. Nothing but grins every time I drive.. Power delivery is greatly improved and for me the fuel mileage never changed.. If you are looking for performance improvements this is money well spent.

    This is one of those no brainer modifications. It does everything better. Fuel mileage is better, performance is amazing!! It is hard to believe that this a 4 cylinder car after the tune. It makes driving the sky so much more enjoyable. We have numerous cars including a C7 z06 vette, and this Saturn with Trifecta tuning is more fun to drive.

    I have a 2018 Silverado and this tune has definitely improved the drive quality of the truck. I was mostly looking for something to disable the AFM system as there's a noticeable resistance felt when the motor switches to V4, also causing hard shifts when going up long, slight inclines (where the motor is constantly switching back and forth between V4 & V8). Not only has this tune eliminated that, but the truck hardly shifts going up any hill now, even if I decide to heavily accelerate half way up the hill. The shift timing has been greatly improved and the truck feels like it has the power it should.

    I have a 2021 Chevy Blazer RS and this tune was exactly what I was looking for. This tune pairs very nicely with the K&N cold air intake and MagnaFlow Street Series, cat-back exhaust system I had previously installed on the car. Trifecta stated the vehicle should be 100% stock, however most name brand cold air intakes & exhaust systems that didn't pose an issue with the stock vehicle should be compatible, so I took that risk and am glad I did! Any minor improvements I found with my previous upgrades were perfected by this tune; rarely needing to downshift when climbing hills, improved throttle response (in all drive modes respectively), better shift timing for a smoother ride, and more power when towing. And with a great product comes great customer service! I received the EZ Flash cable within days of ordering and response timing was almost immediate. Great product!

    My girlfriends 2012 Equinox has the dreaded oil usage and therefore throws P0420 often, disabling remote start. This engine is also gutless. I purchased this tune to take care of constantly having to clear codes so she has remote start and to get a more useable power powerband. I still use 87 octane and it is a noticeable difference in power and crisper shifts.

    I bought the Chevy Sonic 1.4L strictly as a commuter car and. Vowed.to myself leave. It stock. Being a gear head and always adding power to whatever vehicle I own , I knew it would only be a matter of time before something was done to it. I been running an Ultra gauge since the car was new and always hated the 228 engine temp. I started to get failures in all the plastic parts of the cooling system and decided now is the time for a tune. The car runs much better, I always had.a surging acceleration only when cold and at part throttle, that is now gone. Now the highest I have seen for engine temp is 219.2F degrees and that is only during the first initial time after a cold start. On the highway the engine temp settles at a nice 210.2F  . I have 7k on the tune, and it runs perfect. I was surprised at the midrange power gain from this tune. It makes the Sonic a little safer now for two lane road passing. For being all stock, the HP and Torque gains are impressive. You can really notice the turbo fall off after 5k RPM but that is totally expected and happens with the stock tune as well. That is because the stock turbo is out of volume and physically can not produce any more boost. Thanks Trifecta for all your hard work and changing the desired cooling system setpoint to 210.2 from the OEm 228.6F I feel the Sonic and it's entire Cooling system will last much longer and the added power is much appreciated.

    In 2014, I was a lucky recipient of a regal gs tune offered by trifecta on the regalgs site. I had a placard made for meets and shows because it was such a good tune! Needless to say I was totally impressed! I now have a 2015 enclave with a trifecta performance tune and I am equally as happy with it

    I love this product got it for 2014 Chevy Malibu 2.5l 4cyl. It made the car feel like it came alive, much better shift point’s especially on hwy previous to the trifecta performance program when I would get to around 55 mph the car would somewhat hesitate and struggle to stay in 4th gear kept having to downshift to get power to accelerate even uphills, since the upgrade there is power right where it needs to be has my engine running just above 2krpm and can accelerate in the first gears to reach 55mph and maintain speeds through shifts much more smoothly . Also the added benefit of deleting the auto stop has been a lifesaver I’ve not had any issues with it since the program it was throwing multiple codes for the DBCM and various other issues before.. Would recommend to anyone !!

    I installed the Advantage+ on my Colorado over 2 years  ago. In that time, I've lifted it and installed taller tires. This has, in no way, affected the power increase I got when I first installed the tune. I have recommended this product to several people. Those who have installed it have thanked me for the recommendation. I love how my truck runs since installing it. I believe it has, actually, increased my gas mileage as well. Thank you, Trifecta, for making such an awesome product!

    I’ll split this review into two distinct portions, as I believe they both are integral to your purchase and deserve to be equally represented. The tune: I think the one of best ways to think of the Trifecta Advantage Tune is as ‘OEM Plus’. Everything about the car still works normally and as you expect, no warning lights, no lasting equipment bolted to the car, nothing special to do to use the tune daily, no extra maintenance or special fuel needed. As others have stated in their reviews, it just feels how like the car should have been tuned from the factory, or at the very least tuned this way in a selectable sport mode. Another good way to think about it is, it really ‘wakes the car up’ and makes it feel lively and willing without doing anything too drastic. What you can expect to notice immediately after applying the tune; ·         Much crisper and more progressive throttle response, you just need much less pedal to get the job done, the response is very welcome and does away with any sluggish feel to the powertrain. ·         It gets on boost a bit faster and harder. The car isn’t a weapon by any means, but it gets on the boil sooner and the butt dyno can definitely feel more pep in it’s step. It makes this little 1.4T feel more like the power of a 1.6T ·         The gears rev out to 6000RPM now instead of short shifting, and the shifts themselves feel sportier (especially 2nd to 3rd and above), it also holds gears a bit longer instead of forever trying to get into the highest gear possible as quickly as it can. ·         The trans responds a lot faster and downshifts much quicker when responding to your throttle input, much less sluggish/lugging feeling, it just jumps up a cog or maybe two and gets to work. ·         No notable change to fuel economy. The magic part is how all these things marry together and improve the cars driving character to be much more sporting when you need it to be, and when just cruising about it’s also just more 'sorted' and dialled in. Before it felt like the car really needed to be driven with a super heavy foot to extract it’s potential and even then the trans logic would leave me frustrated. Now the car drives like it always should have, modest but welcome cumulative improvements to the normal day to day driving, and if you need to get up and boogie, it’s ready and willing in every way, and has some more poke to boot. Only downside worth listing is, as my vehicle wasn’t a USDM vehicle, I cannot enable/disable the tune with Cruise control, no biggie for me anyway because the car is better all around – and of course cruise control still works as normal. The team and process: This side of the coin was super important for me. I live in Australia for one (16 hours time difference between us), so all my support has been remote, not to mention the vehicle I’ve had tuned isn’t even listed on their website. I initially contacted TRIFECTA regarding my GM vehicles because I saw they tuned their international counterparts, I have a 2020 Holden Equinox and a 2017 Holden Astra, both have their equivalent powertrains in Chevy vehicles, the Equinox and Cruze. The team asked for the VIN numbers and confirmed they could provide a tune for my vehicles. So I bit the bullet, ordered a couple of tunes and one cable. When it arrived, I was pretty quickly disappointed to see that it couldn’t connect to either vehicle, but TRIFECTA support never seemed to doubt we’d get it working. There were a couple of late nights due to the time difference, but they were always quick to respond. As an IT worker, I can only praise their troubleshooting methodology and processes. I was walked through exactly what to try to get it to work, and was able to send them logs from the EZ Flash app to analyse. The engineers made two revisions to the app itself, and each time it enabled access to another of my vehicles. The pace of their development and wizardry level knowledge of GM cars had me providing all the needed info for my tunes in just a few short days, I think it would have been even faster if I was USA based. I cannot praise the team enough for their effort. They are clearly GM vehicle tuning masters, and on top of that are consummate professionals to deal with at every step of the way, from pre-sales questions, through to the sales experience, support experience if things aren’t totally smooth for whatever reason, and just general advice on the vehicles and tunes themselves. This is where a lot of your hard earned money goes when you buy a tune from TRIFECTA, you’re buying piece of mind, support and a wealth of knowledge to go with it, and to top it off the tune is impeccable, faultless. I would not hesitate for a split-second to purchase another tune from TRIFECTA. Well done.

    I was having issues with 2014 Chevy Malibu Ls. The vehicle kept stalling when autostop kicked in at stops. I installed the tune and havent had a problem since.👍

    Definately an improvement on my 2010 v6 camaro. It pulls a lot better in every gear, where as before it would pull kind of weird when i would floor it at around 35 mph as it's the end of 1st gear. Now however, it surprised me how well it pulled. The ghost cam is pretty cool, and it rocks the entire car.  It shifts a lot more agresssive and overall its a lot more fun to drive. I also love how the rev limiter is removed.

    I was skeptical at first but after some digging I was like screw it and bought it on Black Friday. Had to do a bit more tweaking than I expected like switching my Mac to Windows 10 and buying a USB to USB-C adapter to for Flash Cable to work with my MacBook Air. I would say I finally got everything in place and the time it took to tune my Cruze was so short I was wondering whether it worked or not. Left my garage and practically immediately felt the spike in torque, then I got into the country roads and the horsepower late gears compared to before is beyond words. I have a K&N cold air intake and the turbo you hear after about 3000RPM makes it a completely different car. Very fast replies from the team working here and shoutout Michael for helping me. Proud purchase.

    Noticeable difference! Crazy how much more power and torque I received from this. This is how this car should have been from the factory, I also love the fact it removes the "start/stop" mode which drives me crazy that it cant be turned off without something like this tune! 10/10 worth it for the 2.0T 😎

    I love it!!  I always liked my truck -- but now I LOVE it!! I park my truck on gravel.  So after the tune I touched the throttle and spun the back wheels without trying!!  It is soooooo much more responsive at all speeds.  I love the feel of both tunes (with the cruse control off and on), but have gotten totally spoiled with the new feel with the cruse control off.  I do have to be a bit careful accelerating through tight corners with no load in the bed.  The extra torque can make to back end lose traction.  I have not had any long enough trips to get a good handle on the change in MPG.   And Michael was a tremendous help with his quick responses to my questions.  Thank you soo much.

    I can't improve on the posts below. . . except to say that my non-technical wife loves her "new" car!!  Both of us notice the differences.  And the lowering of the water temp to 205 before the fan kicks in along with a modified thermostat to open at 185 (I couldn't find one for 195) has gotten rid of a pesky issue with the "High Temp AC OFF" error message.  I'm thrilled!!
