    Trifecta tune for car noobs

    The gushing on these forums about the Trifecta tune has me very interested in getting it. I don't know much about cars beyond general maintenance but I would like a better ride. These are the things Vince asks for when ordering a tune so I am hoping someone can explain what needs to be put.


    3. Auto - Torque Management Delete - Yes/No (I am guessing how much torque GM allows the car to have on an auto? Is it wise to keep management?)
    4. Intake / Exhaust (do I just put stock here?)
    5. High Flow / No Cat(s) / Offroad Only - I assume I put factory here?
    6. Throttle Body / Fuel system - (no idea)
    7. Cylinder head / Camshaft / Valvetrain
    9. Engine swap - No
    10. Speed Limiter Delete? (I am guessing this removes some sort of top speed limitation for the car?)
    11. Dual Tune Selector? Auto Shift Mode Selector and Cruise Control Selector (not sure what to do here)

    Pretty much just state your current mods when you order pretty simple lol . If your running stock just reply "stock" in the box . If you want the extras just check the box either yes or no . Personally I'd get the rev limiter delete but the leave the max torque for safety . I don't think these engines can handle all that just yet

    The rev limiter delete is pointless. I've had Vince push the shift points back to the redline and the car has enough trouble even trying to get there. The turbo runs out of power before the redline.

    NVM then haha, thanks for the info Erik!

    Im working on my exhaust and ZZP parts before I get Trifecta..... Really dont like the Magnaflow dual setup, muffler just sits way too low! For now im gunna order the mid + downpipe and in the near future run straight pipes from mid and install 2 vibrant performance mufflers in the rear.... ( (1) 2.25" inlet -> (2) 3'' outlets, after the muffler ) + itll look real good with my roadruns bodykit.

    Yeah can't wait , the magnaflows sound nice but it's an awkward setup , and most of the time I hear drips of water coming out of my exhaust . Gotta save up for a new setup on the vibrant mufflers haha

    Well, I have just recived my tune from Trifecta about an hour ago. I got the cable 2 days ago. I didn't really have any problems installing it other than being slightly lost for the first couple minutes. But then I got it all figured out. I just have to organise my folders now, and it's easy as pie. The car fired up, but didn't sound any different. I pulled out of the driveway. The boost kicked in @ 3K and a laid down a little rubber. WOW. This thing is alive now. I went and rat bagged it on my way to McDonalds for lunch. The turbo is super strong at about 3000RPM. It is a pretty nice improvement over stock. I noticed the exhaust note is changing. Sounds like a lumpy cam. COOL! I flicked the cruse control button to armed, and it feels like the car goes back to stock or de tunes a bit. Could be my imagination though. Now I need to figure out all the features this tune has to offer. So far I am very happy with the tune. Coming from a guy who has engine swapped a few Honda's in my time, this is GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK.
    Go on and git one!!!!

    Cruise control armed/on = Eco Mode w/ 14 psi (-2 from stock)
    Cruise control off = Sport Mode w/ 22 psi (+6 from stock)

    Exhaust note shouldn't change.

    Tuned lasr night. Blow off is much louder and also adds a little whine for the turbo now.
