    We did discuss another feature exclusive to Trifecta though- Smart Octane will come standard on all ATS 2.0 tunes. It will adjust boost and timing on the fly for whatever fuel grade you decide to run, and it's been extensively tested with 87-93 octanes over the last couple of weeks. We've got it showing 0 knock on 87 octane, but the power level drops to near stock. Would be great for road trips though, you can run regular and save some cash.
    That is a great idea. I know that 93 isn't available all across the country (plan on a trip to Seattle this summer) and this feature would really help.

    That's conflicting because the e-mail that I received from wot-tuning on 01/18 stated

    "Just writing to let you know we have a tune for the ATS 2.0T now.
    It produces 330hp/300tq on Premium fuel, and utilizes Trifecta's exclusive Select-A-Tune feature.
    This feature allows you to drive around town on the stock tune while in "Tour" mode to maybe save some MPG (and tire wear), but piles on the power, raises the rev limiter, and firms up shifts when in "Sport" mode."

    The e-mail also states 330hp/300tq, however Vince Trifecta stated 320hp/300tq for the production tune here http://www.wot-tuning.com/forums/top...illac-ats-20t/

    Maybe something has changed since I last talked to him about Select-a-tune, I'll find out today. It's possible to use any switch that can change the throttle mapping, which would include the ones you are asking about. The tune would be 330hp, 300tq but we can add more if you want to run a hotter tune and sacrifice some mid range throttle response.

    Vince is hitting an AWD dyno today to get some hard results so I'll post the sheet later today.

    This all sounds great, but can the tune be transparent to the dealership?

    Would resonator delete on 2.0 sound good?


    Would it void warranty or cause any issues with computer or malfunction sensors. Not looking to void warranty or anything. Just a little more sound on the cheap

    Love love love this.

    Call it the 'wife tune'...

    "Yes honey, I know it's more money on a car we've already bought but imagine how much money it'll save in the long run."

    Looking forward to the dyno charts and videos. I'd like to pull the trigger on this one.

    Sounds very interesting and I can write reviews as good as the next guy but I'm over a thousand miles away from you.
