    I had a Trifecta tune for bosh green giant fuel injectors and in 2 weeks i melted holes in 2 of my pistons and destroyed the cylinder walls. got a new 1.4L turbo engine and got it dyno tuned with stock injectors, (because you don`t need bigger fuel injectors) the car is way more powerful and im...
  6. Gen 1 Tuning/Modifications
    I recently had a chance to play around with a legit one and a few cars. It's ugly as hell but a cool device, but I want your guys opinion. Who has used it? Who thinks it's dumb for us? Success stories? Fails? Spit them out here.
  7. Gen 1 Tuning/Modifications
    The only reason I am starting this is because I plan on doing quite a few writeups in the coming future (two pretty detailed ones so far and two more to come), and it would be nice for those interested to be able to get a list in case they don't get stickied and/or lost in the forums. I have...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Greetings. So I got an aem wideband (still wondering how to pipe it in. I guess I could. Do the ac pressure sensor trick. Seems hacky) and a bunch of mods. For my particular setup what would be a safe afr? Any suggestions on squeezing some more power out of it? I'm new to hp tuners (came from...

  11. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I've emailed Fleece Performance and they tell me "all the hard work is done" for being close to a DPF delete straightpipe and an ECU tune for generation 2 diesel cars. They are apparently waiting on a way to lock down the tune in the ECU, whatever that means. I've noticed their ECU tuners run...

  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    Is it possible to, say, use tunerpro or any other application to read/edit/write customer calibration files to the PCM? I am about to get HP Tuners, but I also see people selling these BNR/EFI handheld devices for like, $150ish all over the place. If I can avoid spending $400+ for HP tuners and...

  16. Gen 2 Tuning/Modifications
    Is there such a thing? I might want to test different tunes. I'm seeing some websights but there's so much info on them. It all gets confusing. I have the Trifecta cable. I'm just wondering if there's software tunes that could be bought and downloaded on a laptop and installed with the...

  18. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Has anyone here tried tuning for a gen 1 CTD from audiparts4u on eBay? I stumbled on it one night. You have to send him your ECM he puts his tuning on it and sends it back to you. I think it was $350 which is much cheaper than fleece. I know fleece has great products, and I understand good...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys, I know this has been discussed before, but a lot of the information is dated as things have evolved over the years. I was hoping people could chime in with their experiences/opinions on our different tuner options. I am trying to decide between Trifecta and BNR for an otherwise stock...

    Can someone explain this to a newbie? I couldn't find the stupid questions thread, so I am posting this here. What does this do exactly, and how? And should one do this while the car is still under warranty? BNR Tune 2011-2016 Limited Chevrolet Cruze 1.4L Turbo
