    I wasn't able to connect again with BNR through email so I never received an updated tune. I ended up reverting to the stock TCM tune and it shifts fine now because I think it "learned" some of the firmness from my driving style and from the custom tune. It definitely shifts a lot quicker now than it did without the jerkiness / harshness of the custom TCM tune. The ECM tune is great though, especially on 93 octane it pulls noticeably harder and the power delivery is a lot smoother.

    I tuned my car with Trifecta a few months ago, and on occasion my check engine light would come on. I recently took my car in for inspection, and multiple codes showed up indicating cylinder 2, 4, and 6 misfires, Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold, and Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Malfunction errors.

    This has only happened when my car was tuned. I added the ported/polished throttle body and never bothered getting a tune to reflect that change. Also, I don't use the "ghost cam" feature.

    Has anyone else had these issues? Can the misfiring cause damage over time?

    Have you submitted a data log since you've been tuned?

    Once after I initially tuned it. But not since I installed the ported TB. I'll submit one asap once it passes inspection.

    Hey guys
    New to the cadillac scene. Just bought my first about a week ago. Always been a Chevy guy. Owning a built up 78 malibu on nitrous is fun for the wknds. But gotta have a little of the "get up and go" during the week too. Nice to see there is development on the modern front and to hear good things about the guys doing this work. I will be on the list shortly for some of these upgrades and mods so thanks for all the input and pointing in the right direction.

    The best mods are start with a good catchcan to prevent further valve coking issues, then 20 rwhp & 25 rwtq from the $150 Iceolator, then the $150 CNC pattern ported TB along with the tune from BNR and you will have a completely different animal. Still want more? We supercharge, and turbo charge these to 500 plus HP.

    I see they dropped the price to $315. Interesting...

    Anybody here done this recently? Any feedback?

    I'll step in and add that with one of our super charged 3.6 LLT builds we made just under 400 RWHP until running out of fuel with the Trifecta tune, our new tune the customer made 447 RWHP same boost,. The tune company stated there were several power enrichment features not touched in the trifecta that they have cracked allowing the system to provide enough fuel for the 447 to the wheels vs less than 400. So far none of the issues for FI we had in the past, but we just started using them so will add more as we have more experience with them. And this is only FI, not NA. Haven't used them for NA tunes yet.
