I am going to get a tune going for my first mod. I've owned and been around tuned cars of all types for years now. I know HP Tuners is almost the go-to software for GM vehicles tuning. I have a friend who's Corvette was locally tuned by a big GM shop. I'm thinking I am going to go with him (the tuner/tuning shop) instead of ordering the Trifecta tune...
Does anyone have any comments/suggestions/objections?
I thought the Trifecta was the way to go. I just don't want to do all the back and forth datalogging and emailing tunes stuff back and forth. With the local tuning shop, I'll have my car up on the dyno and monitoring all aspects i.e. timing, boost, AFRs, etc so in essence a more custom and pro-tune.
The shop hasn't tuned any Cruzes yet though. Tons of LS1 motor stuff and the Cobalt SS LNF motors. It would be probably cheaper for the dyno tune vs the $300+ for Trifecta. Only thing holding me back is the lack of experience tuning the Cruze. I trust them/him though because he's done great work on so many high power applications (i.e. recently did a twin turbo custom Viper setup with the stock motor put down 900+rwhp)
What can/can't HP Tuners do that Trifecta can/cannot?
