I honestly don't know. My understanding from Trifecta is that there isn't a commanded torque or anything that we're trying to hit, it was just something that was causing them not to make the same power. It wasn't planned that way and we weren't purposely giving people less power than other people or anything. I personally think it may have been something in the way the auto limits the torque, they must have found something to change to make the same power come in and stay in. And then they also said they rolled in some TCM updates that were put out by GM. I really don't know more than that, but really it doesn't matter as everyone is making great power now it seems. This only affected 4-5 people from what I understand, and it was taken care of. Maybe it was something in those particular car's OS, who knows.
And donavo IS making good power. I'm showing 300HP and 340TQ even though his intake temps are over 150*F
Did you upgrade the 3.6L tune?
I apologize if this has been asked, but does the trifecta tune negatively impact fuel efficiency?
Follow up question: Do you or Trifecta now know whether the same thing could happen to new auto trans customers? So basically, is it a known cause that has been eliminated from new tunes or something a customer won't know until they install it and then need to get it fixed somehow?
And if Trifecta now knows what cars would have been affected, do you know if it was cars built early, late or certain date range or maybe some specific option on the cars? I realize this last question is mostly an academic one so not really on-topic.
I have a gauge that reads out delivered torque so I can see the day to day differences in power and they are BIG. Intake temps change the power a lot. I talked to Vince and did some logging for him for the tcm and he said 10 deg intake makes a difference. I see as much as 30 to50 ft# difference in torque on a cold start vs driving for awhile and stopping and having car heatsoak. I see 350ft# with 75 deg ambient and no heat soak. The Solstice IC was poor, not sure about ours as I have not looked closely at it yet but a new one and an intake would help BUTan intake needs to be tuned so one from BNR or Trifecca would be best.
I wonder if the intercooler setup on the ATS-V will have a single inlet or a dual inlet...
Any chance we can get another goup buy going? I'm looking for this in the next month
I wonder if the trans has torque management tuned in like on f-bodies or the tbss? You can reduce it through a tune.
Can I still get a deal on this?
It's too late to get in on this one as it's been over for a while. We may do another sale sometime later this year but can't promise anything. It's well worth it even at full price though!
