    I purchased this tune for my Canyon and could not be more pleased with the results. I really like being able to choose between a power mode and an economy mode. I took 2 long distance trips and in the economy mode I was seeing 28mpg, that was all highway driving. A 50/50 split of highway/city I will see 21-22 mpg. In the power mode, this tune really wakes up this motor. Power comes on hard, and shifts are crisp. Mash the throttle at highway speed, and the downshifts are instant and the power comes on hard and strong all the way to red line. Also a nice improvement when pulling a trailer.

    I purchased this tune for my wife's 2015 AWD Encore. After installation I took the it for a test ride and immediately noticed a more responsive vehicle. Under full throttle the stock turbo engine had some turbo lag, and then the power would build slowly and you would accelerate. With the tune installed you mash the peddle, you now have a slight turbo lag and then power comes on strong, tires are on verge of loss of traction, and the engine pulls hard to red line. My wife drove it and was extremely pleased with the added HP, making it easier to jump out into freeway traffic. This is an outstanding way to give your Buick Encore a horse power boost.

    Car has been totally transformed and driving enjoyment is very noticeable. For anyone contemplating this, do your homework and make sure your expectations are realistic.   The tune will not make your Acadia into a race car, or tire burning monster. It will remove all the sluggish slop in throttle response and jerky shifting and allow a very linear increase acceleration (very noticeable). Increase HP/TQ is very obvious, and makes the car feel more like a V8.   The way this car should of been from factory.

    I was tuned on September 4th 2015, that day a car was transformed from a weak unresponsive commuter to the little engine that could (on steroids!!!) Now the second I was driving the car, a difference was evident. The subject car is a Bone stock 2012 Sonic 4 door Turbo. The throttle response is night and day, those who know the car stock, know how dead the pedal is, with this tune you press the gas and the car takes off like it should from the factory(you can even get the tires to chirp). The transmission tune is butter smooth and non-jerky, as with the initial ecm tune, the transmission tune just feels right. In conclusion this tune is a must for the novice driver to the pro gear head, its just gives the car that extra pep and fun factor without giving anything up or disturbing reliability or gas efficiency. In short the tune is amazing, and with out doubt a must for your little turbo Sonic!

    I had been looking for quite some time for a product to give me a slight boost in performance with no luck. No one had yet to make serious performance upgrades for the CTS-Vsport. Why? I had no idea, until I found Trifecta. I had heard about Trifecta tunes before but had never given it a shot. My car is running amazing now, throttle response has significantly increased, I can actually feel the power increase tremendously, shifts are smooth without too much of a jerk. Now it is on to the next level of my search for upgrades. No one really has a clue on what a Vsport is usually, so it makes for the perfect sleeper. Thanks Trifecta for all that you guys do.

    I installed my tune yesterday and it’s an amazing difference the way the truck performs. It pulls firmly up through the gears, which is pretty much the opposite of what it used to do, and holds you firmly back in your seat. It has taken me a little time to adjust to the accelerator which now only needs to be pressed down slightly to get it hauling Butt!

    This tune is awesome. It REALLY wakes up the truck and no more slow throttle response - it's instant now. It really fixes the gearing as well. I highly recommend it!

    I stumbled onto Trifecta by accident after reading a few posts online. Everything that they said is true about the performance or lack thereof of the new Colorado's and Canyon 3.6L engine. I was blinded by the flaws that my new truck had when it came to performance because I had the "new truck syndrome" after driving an inline 5 cylinder Colorado for years. I highly recommend buying the tune from these guys, you won't believe the difference it makes in the seat of your pants feel upon acceleration. I hardly ever want to use the cruise anymore to put it into ECO mode. I was sceptical about the entire process but after weighing the possibilities and what I received in customer service and the tune are far beyond what I expected. I bought the Advantage tune which solved all issues that I didn't notice while out for a test drive. Wake up your 3.6L, you won't be disappointed!

    I have a 2014 Maibu LTZ with the 2.5 engine. Being LTZ it has factory dual exhaust, and I installed a K&N Typhoon cold air intake on it. Before the Trifecta tune I was pretty happy with the car, it was a family sedan with teeth, after it feels like a sports car in a sedan body. The soft shifting has changed to snaps. The shift points are very agressive in moderate acceleration, if floored the shfit points are long and mean. It is fantastic! Better than I expected. It feels like a different car.   A friend of mine traded his Corvette in for a Jaguar F-type R and he was amazed with my Malibu. He actually thinks the shifting on my malibu is nicer than his $100K F-type. Obviously I don't come even close to him in just about everything else, but this friend was VERY impressed with what the Trifecta did to my "family car".

    Very happy overall with this product. Noticeable difference in power, shifting, and gas mileage as compared to stock. Very simple installation process as long as you understand to WAIT until the installation is finished. Took less than 30 minutes. Very simple to change from performance back to "stock" tune by pressing the cruise control power button. Excellent product and excellent service thus far. Well done.

    Installed my tune on Wednesday. Took a trip to San Diego. Unbelievable performance and mileage. In sport mode the truck is like a sports car. In eco mode I am already seeing 2 MPG improvement. I am so satisfied with the install. It installed in about 14 minutes. Noticed improvemnt immediately. So glad I did it.

    After about 2 months/3000 miles, I am thrilled with the tune on my 2015 Canyon V6. It gives the truck a definite improvement in in power, but perhaps even more significant is the transmission shifting improvement. It doesn't seem to hunt gears, and when you need it to downshift for a pass or something similar, you don't have to put your foot to the floor. Much better shift pattern and responsiveness. The tune is the best money I have spent on my truck by far.

    After having it for about 5,000 miles, I am overall very happy I bought this tune. The most noticeable difference is how fast the automatic transmission shifts. Often times under hard acceleration you can hear the tires "chirp" when shifting, and it feels as if no boost is being lost between shifts. When driven gently the transmission shifts smoothly as if it were stock, which is nice. In the "touring mode" it holds the rpm's a bit higher, and makes the throttle a bit more sensitive. The extra boost is mostly noticeable in 3rd gear or higher. Overall it just makes the car more fun to drive around town. I ran a series of 0-60 tests using an OBD adapter and the Torque app for Android. Keep in mind I live nearly a mile above sea level. Times were almost a full second faster than stock, however they could be better. You only get the super fast shifting when the car is in automatic mode, if you want to select your own gears, it still shifts as it did when it was on the stock tune. Also when in automatic mode it still shifts at around 6,500 rpm's under wide open throttle, even though it feels to lose its pull at around 6,000. My fastest 0-60 times were in manual mode, shifting at about 6,000 rather than 6,500. Using manual mode gave me nearly .4 seconds faster of a 0-60 time. That being said, I still really enjoy driving the car with the tune. It obviously isn't meant to be a race car, but it is really enjoyable to drive, especially when compared to how it drove when it was stock. I have a 2014 1lt automatic with 8,xxx miles.

    Really amazed at the difference in power with this tune. Never was a believer in tuners for gas engines before but I am a believer now. The power is greatly improved in the tune mode with 1 to 2 mpg better fuel economy in the ECO mode, which still has good power. WOT Tuning was great to work with and answered all my questions. The install was pretty simple and I like the fact that you can remove it and put your stock tune back in whenever you want. Great product!

    Totally transformed my truck's shifting performance. Turned it from a frustrating experience to a joy to drive. I am sure GM programmed the truck to get the best mileage on the EPA loop which isn't a real world driving experience. The performance mode is a hoot but ECO mode is where I think this tune is worth the cost. Shifting is improved and my mileage has increased to the point of offsetting the added cost of premium fuel. Plus with flick of a button a have more aggressive engine and transmission tuning.

    This software has made my truck much more responsive. I can't wait to put the cold air induction system on it. I would definitely recommend anyone that has a somewhat sluggish acting vehicle to use this tuning modification to get more response from their factory vehicle. Every question I have had has been answered very fast, customer service is excellent.

    Absolutely worth every penny. Much better shifting pattern, throttle response, and torque. I wish Trifecta were a little more transparent with information on upcoming products and timelines, but otherwise, my experience with this purchase was flawless.

    Where do we start? How about a burnout? Yes, I can! This is one of the best tunes I've ever used on a vehicle. Just the seat of the pants result is worth the cost and it's not even that pricey! I've had my other cars tuned and this is one of the best ones I've done on a car/truck. The way it smoothed out the power delivery and the quicker reaction from the throttle. Even the slightest input on the throttle gets a response. Just perfect! I hate delays like what I had in my 2007 Civic Si from the factory. I have to really watch myself with the way the truck drives now because you just want to keep stepping on it. I forget that I'm in a truck because of how responsive it is. It wants to just deliver the power and rev the motor out. It's probably surprised some folks already on how quick this thing is entering a freeway. I know one passenger of mine didn't expect it when I punched it. She just kinda got wide eyed.   Now, we must not forget the people behind the scenes. The customer service is also top notch by the way. I am not actually a self-researching type of guy and I am hesitant when it comes to plugging in programs in my cars no matter how many times I've done it before, but they kept answering my questions. For that, I've forgiven them for making me wait a whole weekend for my cable.   Am I a satisfied customer from reading my review? You betcha! If I ever buy another vehicle, I'll be praying Trifecta is available for 'em. It's an absolute must!

    Absolutely awesome tune. Like many others the I found that the truck was very sluggish and seemed to require way too much pedal to get it to accelerate, then when it would finally realize you wanted to speed up it would downshift two gears and spike the RPM's when all you wanted was to go a little faster. This tune made a night and day difference, the power is always available now. First drive i took with it I almost spun the tires pulling out of my garage because of the power difference. Before I was looking at exhaust and CAI's and anything else I could do to get more power out of this truck as it felt so under powered, which didn't make any sense considering it was rated for 300hp, but now with this tune it has more then enough power for everything I need and I don't need to buy anything else. Really happy with the product.
