    Tune was installed March 29th, 2019 on a 100% stock 2018 Colorado LT Ext Cab V6. It has a little over 4,000 miles. I had the Torque Converter "Shudder Issue" and had the latest GM TSB 18-NA-355 performed on the 8L45 8 speed transmission. This fixed the problem but I wanted to do some preventive maintenance by installing the tune. I mainly wanted to disable AFM in all modes because of the effects it has on the transmission. The tune is solid and the transmission works like it's supposed to holding gears longer, shifting and down shifting correctly. I mainly drive in Eco Mode and the mileage is about the same which is remarkable seeing as AFM is disabled and gears are held longer. Now I have the competitions software and have used it since 2003. It would have cost me $200.00 to get a license and another $200.00 and the loss of my vehicle for 2 weeks to be able to tune the transmission. It would have also cost me a bunch of time tuning and testing and driving illegally. I didn't have to do that! This tune does everything I wanted to do and saved me a lot of time. I have the Advantage + tune and the truck is 100% stock. I highly recommend this tune for a stock vehicle.

    Advantage + tune with AFM disabled in Sport mode Stock - I hated the way the truck drove. Tuned - the truck drives like it should have from the factory. Sport is a bunch of fun. Do not wait. Do not hesitate.

    My Sky Redline was quick but now, it's scary quick. Easy installation, too. Amazing how these microprocessors on wheels can be tuned by zeros and ones.

    Completely satisfied with the tune and the customer support. Would recommend to anybody!

    I want to start by saying there are not enough reviews out here for this tune! After flashing my 17 Camaro v6 it pulls so much harder and it just wants to go! I’ve raced a diablo tuned 2015 Camaro SS and actually beat him we even did a highway roll and we where dead even! I’m so impressed I’m purchasing another tune for 14 Malibu turbo great job trifecta thumbs up!

    At first I was iffy what this tune would do for my truck as I came from a 5.7L V8 and was never impressed with the 4 cylinder in this truck. I even considered trading the truck in for the V6 version. I decided to try this tune and it is a completely different truck. I love driving this truck so much more now. The responsiveness, power, and the shifting are all a lot better than the stock tune. I highly recommend this tune, even Trifecta in general after this, because of the great job they did!

    If GM had put this tune in the car from the beginning, they would have sold a ton of these. This is my wife's car and I drive it occasionally. But I couldn't stand the disconnected feel between the accelerator pedal and the engine. Put the tune in and this is now a fun car to drive.

    Dear Trifecta team,   Yesterday I successfully installed the calibration. Even with AWD activates tires are squeaking when the pedal on the floor. With the K&N cold air intake and tuning on a 105 octane gasoline I guess my Equinox is delivering now a little over 300bhp at the engine. Thankfully and as expected the start/stop is deactivated. Attached the results of dynamometer run. And please let me know in case Trifecta develops any hardware or software upgrade.   Best regards   Eduardo Equinox2018 P.pdf Equinox2018 T.pdf

    2018 Equinox "sleeper". I want to thank Trifecta for the tune. The Equinox now has the feel on acceleration similar to the other cars I've owned. (SRT8, Scarab, Z28, 66 Mustang K code, 66 Fairlane GT, Solstice GXP) No one expects much speed from an Equinox, especially since the majority have the 2.4L - 6 speed ( my 2014 was this version ) The new 2.0L with the 9 speed + Trifecta tune is the answer for the Equinox.

    Very impressed all around with the performance of my Cobalt SS/TC. Awesome customer service!!!

    Wow is all I got to say! If your on the fence about this tune DON'T be. The customer service is top notch, they are very prompt about replying to emails and are very helpful with all the questions and concerns you have! Just flashed the car this morning and the difference is night and day! On sport mode the car starts to break the tires loose in 1st and 2nd gear and has so much more acceleration! In stock mode the car is doggy like it was factory. This car will be a lot more fun to drive now, thanks trifecta! Also the only modification to the engine is a aem cold air intake.

    The way the car should be.   I swear this makes this car feel alive! Really responsive, smooth and smart shift points and really gets up and goes when you floor it!   Night and day driving difference compared the stock. If you have a car compatible with Trifecta then do not hesitate to get your car enhanced! You'll actually love your car more than you did before!  Gas milage is better (when not driving too hard) and I don't have to mess with the odd transmission logic for downshifts and odd acceleration points.  Definitely recommended to have a good time.  5 out of 5 stars.

    After using 91 octane I am now impressed with this device! I can definitely feel the power and it shifts more smoothly and doesn’t hang at 7k rpm before shifting! Took around a second off of my 0-60 and now I’m looking even more forward to using E85 with this tune now for the absolute max power! ATTENTION! THE RECOMMENDED 91 OCTANE IS REQUIRED TO FEEL A POWER DIFFERENCE! E85 should be a little more powerful than the 91 octane but only if you have a flex fuel car

    Another 5 Stars for Trifecta! I loaded the Advantage tune to my 2016 ATS today and all I can say is WOW, the driveability is so much better than stock I just cannot believe it. Now I want to upgrade again. The car was already good, now its really really good. It is amazing what Trifecta has done for my car, man I am in love.

    A true solution to disabling stop/start. Flash cable and program were delivered with in a week. Great communication and response to emails. Was concerned about the stop/start function when I was shopping for a new vehicle. Decide on a 2019 Blazer. At the time it was new on the market and little was known about it. Read several forums and production reviews on it with mixed reviews on whether or not the stop/start could be turned off. One was put unit in sport mode at every startup. That sounded easy enough. Test drove a 2wd RS several miles and put in sport mode and the engine didn’t die at the two stops I made. Bought a AWD RS and didn’t retest the sport mode before buying. On the way home the engine shut off at every stop. So I suppose the first one I drove didn’t stop due to climate control settings or other parameters that were not met at the time. After several weeks of experimenting and research the only way to disable the stop/start was to put transmission in L and manual shift to 9th every time you go to drive. Also tried to live with the stop/start but with a lot of stopping the engine seemed to delay starting and was very annoying. Finally came across Trifecta and installed their easy to install program and the stop/start is a thing of the past.

    I bought an off lease 2016 ATS 2.0t two months ago, the only thing I didn't like about it was the Stop/Start feature which caused misery in traffic (because I would forget to turn it off most of the time). When I found out Cadillac didn't have a permanent turn off for it I went looking for one, I remembered Trifecta because I have a 2012 Sonic 1.4t that has had a Trifecta tune for six years, I was delighted when I  saw they offer a program to disengage the Stop/Start function. I flashed it today and after a (very) few miles of semi-rough shifting things smoothed out and now it shifts like it always did. The car is much more enjoyable and easier to drive, I would recommend that anyone with a GM car with Stop/Start that hates the way it functions make the investment in the Trifecta AutoStop delete program, you can always go back to it if you take your car in for service. I am a much happier driver and look forward to upgrading my ATS to the Advantage tune.

    Let me start by saying this is an awesome tune !! I purchased the budget tune . Anyone looking to add. extra horse power and torque ,at  $200 this is a steal. I looked all those cheap plug in do nothing chips don't waste your money. Whith this tune you will see 10 psi more turbo boost feel more torque and make the car overall a pleasure to drive.  Michael In Trifecta customer service was on top of any question I had .

    Definitely worth dropping money on this tune. I was definitely skeptical when when deciding for going for a tune, especially because it'd cost me around $450 CDN, but man; the difference this tune makes is incredible! The increase in power is noticeable right away and the car actually pulls really hard, especially from first to third gear. Driving on the highway is a completely new experience and I'm amazed at how responsive the throttle is at highway speeds. A gentle tap makes the car go and I literally never have to floor it to merge or overtake someone.  In terms of support and service; I ordered the tune from Toronto I got the OBD2-wire in two business days which was faster then I expected. All my questions were answered promptly and I was sent my calibration two days after I sent them my transmission info. I'm definitely very happy with the service I received.  Overall, this car feels like completely new vehicle, always puts a smile on my face, and Trifectia is a great company to work with.

    I can't begin to say how happy I am to my decision on going with the Trifecta tune to my V6 Camaro. This is coming from someone who had 2012 Camaro SS as a daily driver and I traded it in for a 2017 Camaro V6 to save on gas since I had to fill up every 3 days. My car is not a v8 but I can feel the power is there like as if my car has drunk a Monster Energy drink and it all of a sudden woke up to be ready to ride with a stock Camaro SS and hang with it. I thought that using a throttle controller helped to wake up the car. I have noticed a drastic improvement across the board since flashing my car with the calibration that has been set for me. Throttle response is very responsive My RPMs go much higher The shift points have been set higher and hold longer My exhaust tone has changed a little bit which I believe is because of the rev limiter and the shifting points being changed. My car no longer goes into V4 mode if I have it in Sports mode. No decrease in gas mileage in exchange for power is a no brainer   Overall the experience with Trifecta has been great. They are very responsive to emails and they have answered plenty of my questions. I was on the fence with getting this tune since my car is still under warranty but I set it to be transparent and if I ever have to take my car to the dealer for anything, I will just put it back to stock and keep my fingers crossed. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any dyno results since there is not a dyno near me but I will say the difference is very obvious and I can guarantee you that it is not a placebo effect on knowing that you just did something to your car. I believe the dyno results that Trifecta has posted for the Camaros is a little off considering the gear ratios are not the best for these cars. I feel like my car has gained about 30 HP versus 15 - 20 HP.  My only mods are a full catback exhaust system by Magnaflow with Flowmaster Super 10 mufflers. When punching on the gas my car launches which reminds me of my old SS that I had. I will continue to deal with Trifecta if I add any additional mods until I go Forced Air Induction in the future. They are very good people and it seems like they know these GM cars like the back of their hands.
