Add +44 WHP horsepower and +51 ft-lbs torque to your Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T with a TRIFECTA Powertrain Calibration (performance tune)!




http://i61.tinypic.com/28jyvxj.jpg

(This vehicle is a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ with a 1.4T engine and 6T40 automatic transmission (on 91 octane pump gas) with stock wheels/tires.)

Power is increased by +44 horsepower (WHP, measured at the wheels) and +51 ft-lbs of torque UNDER THE CURVE (Power that you can feel immediately)!


The TRIFECTA Advantage powertrain calibration (performance tune) is meant for stock vehicles and is fully developed, tested, and then validated for various environments such as cold/heat, elevation and variations in fuel quality. Through 100,000+ miles of qualification testing and validation on TRIFECTA's own development fleet, we do not compromise powertrain (engine and transmission) reliability by providing safe, reliable, and consistent performance for your MY2011-15 Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T!

Fuel Economy improvements of up to 4 MPG!, vastly improved throttle response (through optimized engine timing and torque management, and more boost; power feels linear and immediately responsive!) and an industry leading transmission calibration (transmission performance tune) contribute to the best drivability on the market for the MY2011-MY2015 Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T.


The TRIFECTA powertrain calibrations are undetectable by dealership diagnostic tools and will not leave footprints or watermarks in your ECM. (All TRIFECTA Powertrain Calibrations (performance tunes and custom tunes) do not increment the ECM write counter or increment entries in the flash history.) (Will match all CVN numbers, file hash/checksums, and file markers of the stock operating system and calibration file.)

Calibration files will include both the Powertrain Calibration file (performance tune) and the stock file so that you can restore the vehicle back to 100 percent stock at any time!

#6 is a neat pic, but isn't it a bad thing when the turbo is glowing? Also what kind of warranty do you offer for damage to engine/components if a vehicle is under warranty and the dealership does find the tune? Yes I read the claim of it being undetectable but manufacturers do have many ways to detect power adding devices.

Skipped over a few paragraphs so I may have missed it;

For current owners of a Trifecta tune, would this be an update to the tune we have? or a separate thing?

The Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T MY2011-2015+ TRIFECTA Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming (General Update Increment: January 2015 / General Update 2015.0) is available as a general update that supersedes and replaces any existing TRIFECTA calibrations issued previously for the MY2011-2015+ Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T vehicle types.


Thank you,

Andrew,
Welcome back to CruzeTALK.:th_coolio:

I've been wondering where you guys have been keeping yourselves, but now I know: holed up in a 21st century alchemist's laboratory ~experimenting, tweaking, refining, testing~ pushing the limits in search of the elixir of life for countless tame and joyless Cruzen everywhere. Congratulations, bring it on!

For my part, your announcement couldn't have come in a more timely fashion because I've been making plans to trade my lifeless 2014 Cruze RS for something more stimulating. Fingers crossed your newest New Tune will put an end to that painful plan.

Here's the deal ... I purchased the new Advantage tune in December, ran with it for a week or two, found it unusable and problematic and, disappointed as all get out, flashed back to stock waiting for you guys to announce a major revision. So now the awaited day is arrived, the revised tune declared officially in hand and revealed to the CruzeTALK community with a compelling write up and eye-popping photos.

That's good enough for me gentleman, I'm ready! Please send me a copy of Trifecta's Bottled Lightning posthaste and save me from mind-numbing driving boredom and the need to trade in for more satisfying-to-pilot set of wheels in the next 7-10 days.

Best regards,
UlyssesSG

Tune 2015.0 Request Sent

The Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T MY2011-2015+ TRIFECTA Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming is available as a general update that supersedes and replaces any existing TRIFECTA calibrations issued previously for the MY2011-2015+ Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T vehicle types.

I sent a request for the new tune 2015.0 via my Trifecta WOT-Tuning account, but am not sure I submitted it properly as I couldn't find a way to begin a new conservation. That being the case, I posted my new tune file request ~almost identical to what I posted minutes ago here on CruzeTALK~ as a reply to the last message I received from Steven Weller.

Is all good then? Please confirm. I wasn't kidding when I wrote that, without a good usable tune, I'm planning to trade the Cruze in the next week to ten days .. so time is of the essence.

Thank you,

Dvan,

As I understand it one version of the just announced new Tune v2015.0 is RTG (Ready-To-Go) for manual transmission equipped 1.4T Cruzen and two others versions are in the works and will released when they've been fully developed, tested and certified. The tune available now for MT Cruzen is the TRIFECTA Interactive Driver Selectable Vehicle Mode (Select-a-Tune MKI).

Please see the Trifecta WOT-Tuning announcement quoted below.

Also, unless informed otherwise by Trifecta WOT-Tuning, I believe all manual transmission tuning files will be similar if not identical to the tunes developed for automatic transmission Cruzen except they will not include the 6T40 automatic transmission calibrations.


Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T MY2011-MY2015 TRIFECTA Calibration January 2015 Featureset Update:

TRIFECTA: DSVM (Select-a-Tune MKII, Select-a-Tune MKI Optional!) is now available! (January 2015):

-- TRIFECTA iDSVM (Interactive Driver Selectable Vehicle Mode) (Select-a-Tune MKII); NEW! Dedicated ECO Mode: Toggle between Tour and ECO mode via the Cruise Control arm states (January 2015: Available on MY2012-MY2014 Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T automatic transmission vehicles, MY2011 and MY2015 TBA, manual transmission vehicles TBA)

-- TRIFECTA ECO Mode: Up to 4 MPG improvement by dedicated TRIFECTA ECO mode prioritizing fuel economy in engine calibration profile and transmission shift strategy (January 2015: Available on MY2012-MY2014 Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T automatic transmission vehicles, MY2011 and MY2015 TBA, manual transmission vehicles TBA)

-- TRIFECTA Interactive Driver Selectable Vehicle Mode (Select-a-Tune MKI): Toggle between Tour and Stock+ mode via the Cruise Control arm states (January 2015: Available on all MY2011-MY2015 Chevrolet Cruze 1.4T vehicles)

Hope this helps. Cheers!

I don't speak for trifecta or anything but most tuning companies aren't going to give you a warranty for you're modified car could be wrong but I've never seen it.

I'm guessing a "no comment" on my warranty question?
I agree with slammed2014eco, pretty sure no tuning company would warranty your car as you accept the fact that something might be damaged (although most likely nothing with this tune). If you want a warrantied tune, you could always get the 10hp stage 1 tune from GM.

So is this an upgrade?
Patman,

Sorry and surprised to hear you've become disenchanted with your 2012 Cruze ECO. Thought you'd be pleased to learn that Trifecta's taken all they've learned about tuning the 1.4L Cruze to date and re-engineered their product into precisely the package for which many in the Cruze community have been asking. IIRC, you were among that number. In any event my suggestion is to flash back to stock tune, log into your Trifecta WOT-Tuning and order up a copy of their January 2015 release tune (v2015.0 ) and, once uploaded to your WOT-Tuning account. download, install and give it a whirl. You've got nowt to lose and you just might be pleasantly surprised with the update.

FWIW, your ECM is not confused. It's nothing more than a piece of dumb hardware enabled by firmware and software. It's clueless and non-sentient, made usable by human programmers.

If after all is said and done you're still disenamoured of your Cruze, then sell or trade it and move on ... keeping in mind that 2012 was in most respects the best build year for Lordstown-built Cruzen. With a 2015 Cruze you'll get the new front countenance, but everything else is a wash.

Good luck my friend,

I really hope this true and that select-a-tune is back. I will gladly take down my signature below if it is. I can't stand PAL. I'm hoping Trifecta saw a lot of members weren't happy with the new tunes.

It's true and apparently they did ... so log into your Trifecta WOT-Tuning account and order your all new tune. My order's in and I've been informed that their engineers will upload it to my account in the next few days. :)

Give it a try NCHEVYHEVN .. you've got nowt to lose and much to gain!
