    Hands down this is the best modification I have done for my 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2. The price is less than or equal to a quality Cold Air Intake - but the tune does so much more!!! It’s simple to install, even for someone like me, who is not computer savvy.    Trifecta Advantage does a couple things:  First off, it makes the 8 speed automatic transmission shift a whole lot better!!! The awful 1-2 shift is fixed, and the truck holds the gears longer so the engine can actually rev into the power zone. When you drive uphill, the slightest pressure on the accelerator prompts a downshift so that the truck doesn’t slow down and you don’t need to mash the pedal to go uphill. The transmission no longer hunts for gears, and the sloppy shifts are now quick and smooth.    The tune also increases torque and power, making the truck pull harder, starting at about 2800 RPM. I can feel the difference when it hits the power band, quite noticeable. Now, it can’t make a V6 into a V8, but it makes the truck a lot more fun to drive than stock. I am very pleased and would recommend this to anybody!!! Sport mode is default when you start the truck, Eco-Mode is selected by turning on the cruise control, but you don’t have to actually “set” the cruise control. I mainly use Sport Mode, lots of hills and valleys where I live.    Thank you Trifecta for a great product!!! Keep up the good work!!!

    Very impressed with the trifecta tune! My GMC Canyon shifts much better now and is noticeably faster then before! Thanks trifecta!

    I purchased this tune about one month after purchasing my 2020 GMC Terrain Denali. The initial tune had some issues getting it to flash to the ECM but the team at Trifecta worked diligently until we had a working tune. Once I flashed a good tune, the effects were very noticeable. Right away there was improved throttle response, acceleration, and torque. I live in Alaska and right now gas mileage is terrible regardless so I haven't even bothered to keep track of it. The increased performance made it worth it to me. Makes it much easier if passing someone or need a quick response from the engine. Prior to the tune there was a noticeable delay between input on the pedal and actual output from the engine. Now it is almost non-existent. I would highly recommend Trifecta Performance to anyone with anyone compatible vehicle! Absolutely amazing team that knows that they are doing!

    Purchased Trifecta tune for my son for Christmas present. Sent info requested and tune was there within a couple of days. Install wasnt a problem. Completely changed the proformance of the ZR2. Amazing throttle response and crisp shifts. I was so impressed I bought one for my 16 Z71! Same results. Best $300 modification ever spent.  Eco mode shifts very smooth but havnt used it enough to see if mpg is inproved but short time I have , looks like it will.  John Hughes

    This is my second vehicle tuned by Trifecta. My first vehicle was a 1.4L Sonic so I knew when I bought the 1.5L Equinox the tune was going to be a no-brainer. The tune waking up the car would be an understatement. Initial pedal depression is very sensitive. Each shift was crisp and purposeful just as Trifecta advertises. The most drastic improvements are in the first few gears that felt dead before the tune. Cruising speeds of 40+ mph are similar in transmission reaction to stock tune but it definitely pulls harder once it drops a gear.  I activated AWD and punched it from a stop and it just launches. A truly amazing difference with just a software change. If you are even slightly considering this tune I highly recommend you pull the trigger - you will absolutely not be disappointed.

    2018 Colorado CRW LB 3.6L LGZ, AFM active in all modes 0-13,000 miles - all stock avg mph 18.2 @ 13,000 miles installed performance exhaust, K&N OE replacement air filter @ 16,200 miles avg mpg 19.3 with 87 octane Tuned Installed 9/2020 @ 16,200 miles @ 18,500 miles avg mpg 18.7.  was holding 19.2 until adding winter fuel and increasing idle time for warm up using 89 octane.  In stock form the truck was avg low 17mpg during the winter.  Driving includes occasionally towing 2 watercraft, work and errands and trips to the ski resort during the winter. 95% of the time truck is driven in sport mode.  On one fall 200 mile round trip to a mountain resort,  2500' to 5000' and WOT on long grade climb, avg mpg 25.0 at end of trip, it was sitting on +27 before pushing it on the climb.  This is a 55 to 65 mph road network plus town driving.  The sport mode is a joy to drive.  And the AFM kicks in when climbing grades at slower speeds which it never did in stock form.  I wanted to see how often the AFM technology is used when in sport to gain all around fuel improvements.  The improvements are way better than I could have expected.  ECO is great, drives much better than stock and I use it during cruise control need but sport mode is just more fun. The shift points and torque management is remarkable and very well executed with this tune - kudos to Trifecta for bringing this V6 to life!

    Much more responsive, and a noticably better power band, definitely makes the truck more fun to drive, and the customer service is excellent. the shifts are so much smoother i'm convinced the lifespan of the transmission has been significantly increased as well.

    I install this on my Buick Regal GS 2015.   The performance is so much better. The pedal response and acceleration  are greatly improved.

    Installed the tune file on a 2016 Cadillac VSport with 50K miles a couple of days ago. It was easy to upload to the car and it took only about 10 minutes. I like the stealth mode option because my vehicle is still under extended warranty. So far the car is running very good. Acceleration and shift points are smooth and flawless. I like the power gains. You get what you pay for with this tune.    Cliff Jenke

    After checking numerous websites/forums I decided on a Trifecta Tune for my 2017  Cadillac ATS-V.  I wanted more power and some of the enhanced features Trifecta offered w/o all the bravado of other companies. I looked at how long they have been doing this and the fact they only do GM products. Their website is very informative, well written and easy to navigate, professional is a good word to describe it.   I purchased the tune and not being very computer savvy had to email them a few times before I got it right. Every time I inquired with not the most intelligent questions they responded and walked me though it. Mike was very helpful he could be a school teacher with his patience.  I had put away my car for the winter (Illinois) before the tune came but do to good weather in December I had a chance to install it and put about 30 miles on it before it had to go back. Before I never saw over 13# of boost in any mode or gear now in Sport about 18# and 20# in Track and that 5 to 7# you can feel. It shifts fine, drives like stock, you can feel the difference in the modes now. Time will tell but I have a good feeling about this. I can't wait for warm weather.   Thanks Trifecta

    Wow. I waited to long to do this. My stock 2015 colorado with the 2.5l 4 banger (6 speed trans) was not slow, but certainly not quick. This tune is like having a different engine and transmission.   Shifts are smoother, torque comes on early and feels like I have it in 4 low. It is awesome. You wont get out of your driveway before you notice the difference.    The go pedal is predictable now, trans shifts less and makes the vehicle drive like it should have from the factory. Chevy should layoff whoever programed their stock tune and farm the work out to trifecta. After experiencing the difference, it really makes you wonder what clipboard warrior at gm neutered these awesome trucks.    In conclusion, it is worth every penny. I hate spending money and this was no small amount to me, but it was worth every cent. Do it, you wont regret it. Your truck will thank you.

    2018 Silverado High Country 1500 6.2L which has had the occasional hard 1-2 2-1 shift issue, as soon as I felt the shudder for the first time at 14,000 miles and immediately took it into the dealer and they did TSB 18-NA-355 triple Flush. I also ordered the Trifecta tune Advantage program, being an 2018 or newer I had to wait for the cable to download the security code from the engine module and send it to Trifecta. I installed the Trifecta tune with AFM delete in all modes. I noticed sport mode increased throttle response and modified shift points. ECO mode, shifting was better in both modes. I just took a 1200 mile trip without any issues. 20+MPG at 80-85mph

    I’ve had nothing but amazing customer service! Only slight hiccup I had was there was a mishap in the file but Steven got that sorted out in a matter of hours! I would definitely recommend to anyone that’s looking to get some juice in their Ecotec! Car runs amazing, pulls amazing, just needs some slight tweaking but that’s okay because I bought the Advantage Plus! 10/10 would recommend!

     Trying to wring the ponies outta this sluggish POS... Was tired of my motorcycle having more HP than my car! Now my car at least has 5 more HP then my 380lb bike 😂. Plug n' play setup was idiot proof. Injen intake and ZZP exhaust, this tune is more noticeable then both combined. Takes some getting used to, as the car drives completely different(in a good way)... but the responsiveness is highly noticeable.  Not a racecar, not even a fast car, but a reliable car. Now slightly less boring. Great tune for the price.

    Simple process, it is now, but I did not know what I was doing at the time and Michael, support walked me thru it 20min later installed. Jumped in the car to test out.. WOW this is my car now? It’s like a whole new car, the driving experience is night and day. Even after install, support answered all my questions.Good company... Happy customer

    I’ve had my 2018 ZR2 3.6 V6 Colorado Trifecta tuned with Advantage+ for a year and a half and about 40k miles. When I originally got the tune, it was because I hated throttle response and the shuddery feel of takeoff and 1-2 shift. The tune fixed that and added a lot of pep to the truck, especially eliminating the need to step-through-detent to get it to downshift when highway passing. Steven and Michael have been nothing but responsive and helpful the handful of times I’ve had to correspond about getting adjustments done. We had a small glitch happen while I was requesting a recalibration to the speedometer for larger tires. After some back and forth emails, and some trial-and-error on my part, we got it sorted out communicating over the Christmas holiday. I emailed and got a response right away. The general performance, fun factor, (in my case) fuel economy and throttle response are all welcomed. Customer service and response time has been great. Very much recommended.

    This product is CRAZY!  Trex stock was fun, fast (ish) and good enough for everyday use. I honestly find myself driving with the tune off most of the time because if I don't, I feel myself driving like an STI owner.  If you get this, I would highly suggest upgrading your tires and brakes.  I promise those corners will come at you A LOT faster than before.  If my next car is covered by Trifecta, I'll be buying again.

    After hearing about all the positive results from the group on Facebook I made the leap. It made the car 10x more fun to drive. Shifts are confident and throttle response is snappy. Extremely happy with the purchase!

    Purchased Advantage tune for our 2019 Traverse AWD.    Installing the tune was very smooth - no hitches at all! Did some  informal before /after performance testing with an OBD data-logger my son had.    Before testing with 87 octane fuel, was seeing an average calculated 1/4 mile time of  15.9 seconds at 92 mph.   The after data with 93 octane averaged 15.5 seconds at 95mph.   Again this was informal data from a datalogger ,  however tried very hard to make 3 identical runs before and 3 runs after.  Then averaged for the above before/after data. However; the main reason I purchased this was to improve the transmission's shifting performance (the OEM shifting was VERY soft, and the and downshifts seemed delayed with occasional hunting for the best downshift gear.  Mission accomplished - it no longer feels like a CVT tranny !    With light throttle driving it still shifts very smooth.   However under heavier throttle the shifIs firm up and it holds gears a bit longer.  The downshifts are much better, I would describe them as "deliberate".  And the other bonus: the dreaded auto-stop feature is no more  🙂

    Prior to this tune I was considering trading in my 2015 Acadia SLT-1 AWD for an SUV with a V8 due to its poor acceleration and shifting.  With this tune, I can take advantage of higher octane so I use ACES IV Gasoline Formula to increase the octane of 87 pump gas.  Now, when I take off from a stop, I lose traction on dry asphalt if I accelerate too fast which activates the traction control.  Keep in mind that my Acadia is AWD!  The power/torque at low to mid-range RPMs is MUCH better.  Because of the added low-end torque, I recommend that one doesn’t use sport mode when driving on snow or ice…it’s just too much even with AWD.  I haven’t tried this tune without ACES IV octane booster but I assume this tune would still be great especially regarding the shift points.  Upon writing this I realized I should see how the tune performs without ACES IV.  I’ll update my review once done.  Also, my mpg has improved by about 2 mpg but I tend to take off quite fast now so it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison.  This tune exceeded my expectations.
