Description
This is a custom performance tune done by Trifecta Performance. 

Special features specific to this vehicle include-

Select-a-Tune: Allows you to drive in a "stock" mode with lower boost levels and lower power for day to day driving. At the touch of a button you can enable the high boost "race" tune.

No-Lift-Shift: Just like on the Cobalt SS Turbocharged. Keep your foot to the floor as you shift, just like a power shift. This keeps you in full boost between gears.

There is no need to send in your car's computer, but you will need a cable to flash the tune to the car. This cable can be purchased on this site or you can contact us before purchasing and we can rent you a cable with a security deposit.

You will receive a base line tune file via email and a link to download free software to upload the tune to your car. Once the tune is uploaded, you will need to data log the car by driving it. Once you have created a data log file, you will need to email that log file to us. Trifecta will analyze the log file and send a new tune file that has been updated with any changes to air fuel ratio, boost levels, timing, etc. We will repeat this process until the car is dialed in. 

Please choose a cable below if needed. Any of the cables listed will work for this vehicle.

Trifecta Red Cable- Works with 2008+ model years. Only works with Trifecta EZFlash software.

Trifecta Tactrix Cable- Works with 2008+ model years. Also works with open source software used to tune Mitsubishi, Subaru, etc. NOTE: You cannot use just any Tactrix cable with EZFlash- it must be licensed. If you know someone that has one already, or find one used online, we can license it for EZFlash for a small fee. Contact us for details. 

Trifecta Black Box Cable- Works with all model years.


Trifecta's Retune Policy is described below. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions prior to purchase and we will be happy to assist. 

Budget tunes are not eligible for retunes or adjustments.

On "full feature tunes" which include adjustments, we will work with you to get your tune dialed in based on logs submitted.

If your vehicle's setup changes (e.g. modified intake system, etc.) there may be a retuning fee assessed depending on what has changed. 

If there is a minor drivability symptom due to said changes (e.g. CEL or other issue), there may be a minor tune adjustment fee assessed. 

If there is a major upgrade (swapping fuel injectors, adding boost, etc.) there will be a major retuning fee. 

It is at Trifecta's sole discretion in determining if any, or what type of tune upgrade fee might be assessed.

All sales are final on Trifecta tunes and no refunds will be given on any tunes purchased. Tunes are tied to the VIN of the specific vehicle and are not reusable on another vehicle. 

Reward Points 315 points will be rewarded to you when you buy this item.

    EXTREMELY satisfied with this tune. Responses to datalog requests were very prompt and concise. Very cool to have select-a-tune and feel the difference whenever. Would recommend switching to premium fuel when getting the tune. Great product and service!

    Amazing! I have not data logged yet and can already tell a big difference. As many stated before, this should be one of your first mods. Thanks BNR!

    I'm new to turbos and the whole tuning thing, but I must tell you that it is Money well spent. If you are looking for competitiveness without breaking the bank Trifecta is what you need! You will "feel" the difference!

    Once you datalog and get tuned in, it's basically like driving a different car. That's not an exaggeration, the difference is that huge.
