    I have put off writing this review for over a year because longevity, at least for me, is most important. So I wanted to leave the kind of review that a gear-head like me would want to read for a basic, daily driver mod. First off, I bought this to get rid of the auto stop AND the transmission recalibrations. The extra power was more of a bonus/extra. It was money well spent and I was not disappointed. You get everything it promises. Power, a better shifting automatic transmission, auto-stop delete and the ability to toggle it on and off with the cruise button. The download process is simple. 1.25+ years and over 40k miles later, I have not had one single issue whatsoever. The only negative is your fuel mileage will decrease by a couple miles per gallon. I don't beat on the car in an ignorant manner, but I drive it aggressively when I need or want to. With that being said, I take very good care of my vehicles and do my own maintenance and repairs. The car, as long as I've owned it (20k miles pre tune and 40k+ post tune), always gets 91 octane as well. It currently has over 83k and runs, cools and drives perfect. I would have no problem recommending this tune to anybody looking to improve the drivability of their Cruze.

    I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze 1.8l LS Automatic and have been the sole owner and I've kept it stock until I upgraded the tune through Trifecta. I have no other mods on the car, and with the tune alone I feel the difference in acceleration and the shifting is much better. Off the line there is more response in the throttle, shifts seem quicker, and the lag when downshifting to pass has all but disappeared. I did have a small issue with updating the firmware on the interface cable, but with a little communication with Support it was fixed without any additional issues. 10/10 would recommend for any level of car enthusiast.

    Hey everyone at Trifecta. I would just like to say one thing; OMG. My 2018 CTS VSport TT Luxury responded to the tune above and beyond my expectations. Simply put, the the car woke up! I would always run the in the stock performance mode just to feal the car perform. I flashed the firmware, took it for a early morning grocery run, and was blown away. Now, I can run in Performance mode and seriously surprise BMW's, Mercs, and other 4-door performance sedans. The launch and 2-3rd gear 0-60 defiantly was seriously improved by at lease .5-.7 seconds pushing the car 0-60 in to the high 3's. Now its all about a drivers capabilities. I feel this was the best investment $ to horse power and torque money can buy when you are building a performance car. Next year I am doing the turbo upgrades and wounder if can I reflash with the turbo mods? Thank guys! You rock!   K

    Had a couple of glitches flashing the cal -- all due to misunderstandings on my part -- but Trifecta tech assistance got me through them quickly, and the cal was flashed easily.  Our Solstice GXP  runs GREAT!  My wife and I just took a few days to tour around the perimeter of lower Michigan (one lap of the mitten, if you will), and I was truly impressed.  Just as civilized and refined at low speeds / low loads as ever, but open 'er up and she just pulls hard to the redline.  No sags, hickups, lights or codes.  Passing a slower vehicle on a 2-lane, you downshift to fourth gear, nose into the left lane, push the pedal down and POW, you quickly blast past with no drama.   Fat torque and boost from low in the rev range all the way to redline now.  No more falling off a cliff just above 5000 RPM.  I'd say the car was quick before, but now I'd call it fast.  Not crazy wicked FAST, but at least lower case fast.  All for four bills - not bad.

    Really fixed the dead spot in my car. The automatic downshifts sound great too!

    Great support for mods. Trifecta is pretty quick to update the tune files for new mods (Sorry for all the changes guys). This tune really perked my car up. It's a lot faster, drivability is better and mileage was relatively unaffected (outside of needing super unleaded). Had an issue with pinging in the summer months, but ran a 41-103 plug which got rid of the issue. 41-108 seems to work fine in the fall-spring. I live in Phoenix, so summer is a special heat......

    Once again Bravo!!! I have purchased several tunes and been pleased with all of them. Quick to respond and get me going. I will continue to recommend and promote these fine folks. Thanks again.!!!

    Mind blown 🤯. Could not believe what a huge difference the stock tune made. It was like driving a totally different car. Awesome tune. Can't wait to see what a difference the turbo elite makes.

    I just bought a 2021 GMC Canyon…. I also have a 2020 Ford Ranger that has a Ford Performance Power Pack tune on it… driving that Ranger then driving the GMC was so depressing… the GMC just plods along, so I immediately grabbed the Trifecta tune and applied it to the GMC… wow, now it drives like it was supposed to and rivals the boosted Ranger… best $$ I ever spent…

    Very happy with the results. It's worth it for the throttle response and AFM delete alone. I'm DEFINITELY getting better gas mileage as well, especially in touring. Pictures are from my normal work commute.

    This is the second vehicle that I’ve used trifecta for and I’ve been tremendously happy with both so far, with the first vehicle holding strong 5 years later. The tune for the Buick makes an absolute world of difference. While I loved the car I was frustrated with auto shift points, manual shift reaction and throttle reaction. The tune completely turned the wagon into a peppy little rocket that responds immediately to everything I’ve asked of it. Although I have noticed an uptick in mpg’s, it was not a priority for me when originally purchasing. Extremely happy with the results, absolutely worth it.

    Rick Marr  I just finished downloading my performance up-grade. I am totally blown away!!! The power difference from the stock 270 hp to the now approximately 320 is immense. I did this mainly for the ability to tow my boat without struggling to get up some big very long hills. I can't imagine how well it will do now. Plus the advantage of increased fuel mileage. I'm running on 87 octane but t Chevy recommends high test 91 octane. At the cost of fuel now I'll stick to the regular... Thank you so very much Trifecta. I will proudly use the Trifecta decals and the license plate holder!!!

    So, I know absolutely nothing about tuning, mapping, mods, etc. . And that is why I hope my review helps other's who are, like I was prior, feeling hesitant because of lack of knowledge. That said, here is my honest review. The customer service representative who helped me, Michael, was patient, efficient with responses to my inquiries, and explained things in the way I needed to understand. He gave me total confidence in the platform, the product, and was indicative of the very best representation of this company works. As for the tune, after installed , driving home I was almost underwhelmed. Got home, read an article on "contrasting adjustment periods" .( I had literally driven the car ten minutes after the tune and on streets that maintained a 45 mph speed zone. I got up, 2 a.m., and I filled up the tank and just hit the expressway for about an hour there, hour back. It wasn't an additional ten minutes from my second departure I realized I had made the exact right decision. The shifting on point, the power couldn't be denied, the overall drive was a 52 year old man feeling seventeen, more, feeling like I was the smartest guy on the planet. I know it sounds overstated, but here's the thing. In a time where standard business practices is no longer held to standards such as honor, integrity, pride, customer satisfaction, quality; to actually find a company, a product and service, a support team that exemplifies all the afore mentioned is something we the consumer should take note of, and remain loyal too. I'm actually upgrading my plan and I'm certain I've found the right company, with the right products, with the right " Mission statement" . So for those, who like me, are nervous, suspecting, or hesitating. I knew nothing, I was a nervous ball of doubt, I prepared for the worst. Luckily, I found the best. Oh, yeah, the car.. It's a machine. It's alive, and I'm still driving lol. Took a pit-stop to write this, and I'm dying to get back on the road, so in case you missed it, I love my decision, I love my car, thank you Michael, Trifecta, and thank this board for all the great info.

    If you have been rolling it around thinking about it. Wondering if it is worth it. It is definitely worth it. My 2019 2.5l 6spd 2wd Colorado wasn't bad by no means when I bought it. This tune brought my truck to life. The power. The shifting. The pedal. All of it is greatly enhanced. No doubt about it. I did a 2" leveling kit, 1 1/2" wheel spacers, front and rear hitches the same day so I can't say what economy is like. Anyways, it is not like the movies. It is not nitrous. Not like a turbo. Not like a blower. It is a factory tune. And it is above and beyond my expectations. Thank you

    Best decision and upgrade I've made on my Chevy Colorado!!! The added power is definitely noticable. It's not a throw you in your seat kind of upgrade, but the shifting points are much smoother, the added torque definitely helps in towing my cargo trailer, and I've already seen a +2mpg in fuel economy in the short time I've had the tune installed. This is how the truck should perform right from the factory no question. The whole process was streamline and uploading the tune to my truck was very quick and easy. Took 15min total once the tune was downloaded on my laptop and then hooked up to my truck. Absolutely recommend this upgrade on your vehicle! You won't be disappointed!!

    The tune was great!  It done everything I needed and when I had questions, support got back to me super fast!     I highly recommend and share trifecta!

    2021 chevy traverse LFY 3.6 Tune makes a big difference pulls harder shifts are firmer quicker and will hold a gear longer then stock. Auto start stop is disable and no more annoying off on at about every stop light. Trifecta support team is great and answer all my questions and concerns. Would highly recommend

    After driving w-body impala's for over 8 years (4 of them in a limited), I can honestly say this is the best they've ever felt. Stop waiting and purchase this tune! I was initially worried about the throttle being too sensitive -but it isn't. The tranny remap is truly phenomenal in town and on the highway. The eco-mode also works as advertised. The only other mods on my car are a WIX drop in air filter (basically stock but passes slightly more air), the Addco swaybar with Moog end-links, and flow master 40 series delta-flow knocks offs and there are no issues present.  The customer service from Trifecta is also top-notch, which is what initially drew me in. I've run into a few minor issues, but they helped me every time with prompt assistance! 10/10 would buy from Trifecta again for future cars!

    If you're paranoid about purchasing this tune, stop right now and read this. I was extremely paranoid about purchasing this tune for my 2021 ZR2 as I found it hard to believe that it would be done correctly and wouldn't cause any damage without Trifecta physically having my modules and writing these calibrations directly to them. I had tons of conversations with Michael about this tune prior to buying it and at no point did he get irritated with all of my questions and requests for the tune. I was very concerned about the performance enhancement (sport mode) and them recommending that the vehicle would run best on premium fuel after the tune was completed. The vehicle running better on 91 octane would only tell me one thing; The engine in running hotter and needs fuel that can resist higher combustion temperatures. This fact didn't settle well wth me so I constantly nagged Michael about what could be done and whether they could tune the truck to have the tune off at all times since I only wanted my shift schedules, gear ratio and speedometer to be corrected. He ensured me that they could program the vehicle to be running with stock performance (in eco mode) at all times and I'd just have to put a request in my notes when updating my calibrations. I constantly requested re-assurance from Michael and even though I hadn't purchased the tune yet, he never hesitated to respond or give me the detailed re-assurance I needed. I purchased the Advantage+ tune as needed to correct for my new gear ratio and speedometer after installing 35's. I just installed the tune today and as requested, there is no performance mode on the truck. There is no change in performance when I switch from eco to sport mode (which is what I requested) and the truck feels like it knows what its doing again after changing the gears and tire size. The cruise control has also returned as I lost that once I changed the gear ratio. The install took about 5 minutes and the truck runs fantastic. I'm very happy I made the decision to go with Trifecta for correcting the data for the modifications I have made to the truck as the software is easy to use, convenient, truck performs great and fantastic customer service. I'll definitely recommend Trifecta to any friends that want a tune done on their Colorado as I'm very satisfied with the results 🤘

    Like other's have said, this really woke up my Colorado. Once installed, the truck was a lot more fun to drive. Adding this to a stock Z71 2wd 3.6 gave it the pep it needed. Caught myself a few times on the freeway just letting it unwind! MUST HAVE!!
