    Tech support on install was awesome. Notice immediately the new quickness of the truck. Transmission shifts much better than before.

    I got the able today and uploaded the program to my car. All the "WOWS" you read on this site are definitely accurate and true. There is definitely more power when you floor the gas pedal, even in 5th gear!!   I cannot wait to try the file that removes the speed limiter when it becomes available!

    I chose to have the cruise control switch turn on/off the tune. I wasn't very impressed at first until I figured out that cruise control off equals tune on. Wow.... this thing came alive. This will delay my need for a LS V8 transplant. It's worth the money!!!

    Best thing i ever did to my regal. The power output was amazing. Running no Cats, with e85.

    I have a 2016 Colorado Z71 V6 with 6 speed automatic, 2wheel drive. I really like everything about this midsized truck except the automatic transmission! I have 20000 miles on it and have been to 3 dealerships trying to get assistance in modifying the shift points of this tyranny. Same answer as always, they can'take modify from factory specs! The current tune settings always keeps the Trans in too high of a gear so when I need the acceleration, it would buck & hesitate before downshifting and then launch into gear. Very disgusting performance. I was averaging 23.5 miles per gallon as I drive 62 miles a day, combination city & freeway traffic with the AC on as I live in Phoenix. I would like to say that this tune package is by far the best $300 I have ever spent on a vehicle! I'm a car guy for 40 years (Chevy) and am extremely impressed as I was even thinking about trading the Colorado in on a v8 full size truck. Don't delay, get this package now! I have been running in ECONO mode all week and just check the gas mileage and it shows 27.7 mpg! With lots of power & great shifting manners. Performance will blow you away!

    Great tune. These guys are easy to work with and the process was simple. My 2012 GMC Acadia feels like a much lighter / smaller vehicle with a lot more power on the bottom end. Throttle response is much improved too without being overdone.   Thanks for a job well done!   Doug

    first of all I am very impressed with the added performance in my solstice gxp. it is a totally different animal now. i was skeptical that the difference would be very noticeable but it's like night and day. the car is a rocket. definitely not going to tell the wife about that "competitive mode" button.   secondly, the customer support at trifecta is awesome. communication was excellent. the whole process couldn't have been easier. my cable came in just a couple days, my calibration was posted and when i finally got a chance to install it everything went very smoothly. about 10 minutes later my horn honked, lights flashed and it was done.   in short, i can't think of anything i could have done to my car for 5X the price that would have netted me this kind of performance gain. i highly, highly recommend Trifecta Performance

    Outstanding job. This is my first experience into the world of tuning and I'm hooked.

    I installed the Trifecta tune on my factory stock 2008 Saturn Sky Redline a few months ago. I am more than very happy with the results. I am truly amazed at the difference in power. If you have the 2.0 Turbo believe me, you would be very happy with this tune. My boost went from 17lbs to 23 lbs and it may be more, as I'm not sure if the gage pegs out at 23. My friends are shocked at the power difference with the boost turned on vs off. I think it is money well spent.

    I just finished installing a Trifecta Advantage plus tune on my 2017 Colorado 3.6 V-6 with the 8 speed automatic transmission. After providing Trifecta with the necessary vehicle ECM module info, the download was flawless . I immediately took my Colorado out for a road test and was very pleased with the change in performance. Accelerating out onto the highway it holds first and second gear a little longer than stock, and under WOT, the shifts are firmer. I was critical of my vehicle's performance at speeds around 40 mph, as when attempting to accelerate, the transmission felt like it was stuck in a higher gear and lugging until you did a forced downshift. With the Trifecta tune, the vehicle is already in a lower gear or depressing the accelerator slightly produces a almost imperceptible downshift. The extra torque the tune produces is also evident at lower speeds when a downshift is not necessary. Engaging "shift on the fly" is accomplished by turning the cruise control on and off. If driving along in Sport mode (cruise control off) and switching to Eco mode (cruise control on), the transmission will immediately shift into a higher more economical gear with a corresponding drop in rpm.   I would recommend this Trifecta tune for anyone seeking a performance upgrade to their 2017 Colorado V-6.   Roy Wires8/1/17

    Tune installed July 17th Miles driven since: 800 Advantage + tune with AFM disabled in Sport mode Fuel is 89 Octane Stock 2017 Colorado Crew Cab Short Box v6 8,100 miles   Want to start off by saying you get what is advertised, a solid tune that improves the overall driveability and performance of the truck. Being able to change modes on the fly is one of my favorite features. No other vehicle I've tuned supported that option.   Eco mode is like a better version of the stock truck tune. Seems to run smoother, and a bit quicker to shift down when needed. Does not stutter/chug up hills while under load nearly as much in the 30 - 40 mph range. Only on rare occasion have I noticed it still do this. Throttle seems to be a bit less sensitive to inputs at highway speeds which is good for mileage. Mileage seems to be on par or slightly better than stock. Averaged 25 mpg in mixed driving conditions over a 455 mile run. This is how the truck should have run straight from the factory.   Sport mode is a whole other story. Throttle is noticeably more sensitive / progressive. Great fun, but abrupt inputs yield abrupt results. You need to get a feel for how the throttle is mapped to be smooth, but it's certainly got more pep. The truck holds first and second longer. When merging and passing you have noticeably more grunt, it drops gears and goes. Transmission shifts are very positive, what I consider firm but not harsh. I also opted to disable the AFM in Sport mode. Made sense in Sport mode to have all six cylinders working all the time.   In both modes, it seems that the timing and fueling changes smooth things out and add a bit of power and torque. That coupled with the improvement in the transmission logic, the tune really works well. If you ran 91 octane in it, you'd probably see even more performance out of it. It's a truck though, and I just can't justify running premium in it.   I feel the tune delivers on its claims, and would recommend it to anyone. I thought it had a good performance envelope for a truck in stock tune. Now, it's even better. Two solid driving modes with the ability to switch on the fly. Eco for daily driving, and Sport for when I want that extra punch. Not really any downside.

    In my opinion you can't own this engine (1.4t) without this tune. The most functional difference for me was the increase in low end power. On my commute I would need to do the 6-5 switch constantly, and while i am greatful for the ratios on the LTZ 6spd, the power (on stock tune) at highway speeds in 6 is practically non-existent. With this tune i barely have to touch 5 to get the power I need on highway, and in fact, i have a tough time staying below or at the speed limit....   This truly "jail-breaks" the car. 10/10 would recommend.

    This tune is amazing!! If you're like me and like the way older trucks would hold their gears a little longer before shifting, this is the tune for you. I no longer have to feel like I'm flooring it just to get on the freeway. It just feels more natural now. Good Job Trifecta!!!

    I purchased this tune earlier this week and it arrived on Thursday afternoon, very timely. I tried to install it using a coworkers PC and it didn't go through and I got very nervous and was questioning my decision regarding the purchase of this tune. So I went to Office Max and bought a $300 cheap PC with Windows 10 on it, went home, booted it up and ran the program. 30 minutes later I'm up and running and heading to the gas station to fill up. Even simply going to the gas station through my regular route put a smile on my face. The sound has changed, the turbo reacts differently, the throttle is more responsive, the shift points are smoother and so much more. I only got to drive it very briefly tonight but I am looking forward to going into work tomorrow morning, something happens very rarely. If you are on the fence about purchasing this product, hop on down and hit these guys with the credit card and never look back. They are highly professional and will answer any and all questions in a timely manner. Thanks TRIFECTA for turning my fun little grocery getter into a sleeper of the streets. Can't wait to put a CAI in this baby.

    I love the performance increase and improved throttle response - for me this is the best HP/$ upgrade you can get for your vehicle! I also got the e85 calibration and the results are dramatic over the 93 Octane tune. I ran head to head with 93 octane vs another Regal running e85 and it pulled away with ease, forcing me to get the e85 calibration also . I love that the tune also adapts to the octane rating if I cant find e85. All in all I HIGHLY recommend this product. I'm also a proud owner of a Trifecta tune on a Verano Turbo and can say every future vehicle of mine will have a trifecta tune (if available). Outstanding product support, easy installation and awesome performance increases. Say goodbye to stock.

    The tune put some life into the truck.

    I love the tune. It makes the car fun to drive.

    Have had the tune in my 2016 Cruze for about two weeks now and it is truly amazing! The STOCK setting definitely feels like the car is more certain what gear it wants to be in now instead of the factory setting where it constantly felt like it was searching for the right gear. Not sure if it's just me but even the STOCK tune feels like it's given the car a little boost in power. The biggest difference is when you turn on the SPORT setting. When you step on the throttle, you don't have to pin it to the floor and the car takes off! It will put you back in your seat when you hammer it! My Cruze is noticeably faster and more fun to drive now.   I also purchased the K&N Intake offered through Trifecta with the tune. With the intake you can hear the turbo spool up. Car isn't a drag racer but it's a nice sound to hear every now and then when I'm driving. I also have a cat-back exhaust as well as a down and midpipe on the car. Trifecta's tune is without a doubt the crown jewel of all of the modifications I have made so far. I truly could not be happier, not just with the tune but with the outstanding customer service as well. You gentlemen at Trifecta have been great to work with- answering questions when I needed and with your awesome tune. Me and my Cruze thank you!

    Firstly, this company is phenominal! The customer service and quick response is worth the tune hands down. Secondly, the power i get from sport mode never ceases to amaze me. From a dead stop I can disable traction control and punch the accelerator in sport mode to lose myself a little tread. Additionally, my truck has the Bi-Modal engine which means while cruising it hits 4 cyl regularly and will sometimes shift back and forth to 8 cylinders and 4 cylinders to save on either power or fuel economy. This presents a few problems. On the stock setup the truck tended to have an occasional "Hard shift", which means that if it was going back into 8 cyl mode at the same time as the transmission was shifting gears you might think someone just bumped you from behind. It was truly a HARD shift. I have also seen a lot of discussion about the bi-modal setup being hard on the oil pump and more specifically causing the vehicle to burn oil later in it's lifecycle. To remedy all of these issues i asked a representative if they could tune my truck to NEVER go into 4 cyl mode. They did and man i have to tell you, what a difference it has made. Im talking no more hard shifts, no more lag between acceleration when in 4 cyl mode. Plus the fuel economy has only been effected by coming down from about 16.5-17 mpg to 16 mpg. The 4 cyl mode just wasn't worth it in my opinion. However the Trifecta Tune I purchased has REALLY been worth the price and I couldn't be happier. I just wish I could get a little sticker or decal for my back window. For sure worth the purchase. If you are on the fence, get this one!
