    Trifecta won't sell it anymore. I know someone here has to have it. I have the Trifecta cable, which I used to bring my Solstice to life. Now, I need this tune to do the same with my GXP. Please help!

    don't bother with trifecta. they are dishonest. they ripped off bad news racing years ago. it wasn't on this platform, but they were still dishonest. I think it was on the Cruze 1.4 turbo platform.

    in my opinion, your best bet is to pick up an HP Tuner and have James Brewer aka joats premium tuning do it. James is a solid tuner and very familiar, actually quite intimate, with the LS4 platform

    Trifecta did a wonderful job on my Solstice. Brewer turned off my DoD and charged me $500. That's why I'm here, in search of Trifecta. (Please note that I've seen the list of what Brewer allegedly does, though it was not provided by him. The only thing that AFFECTS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE CAR is the DoD, at a time when premium is approaching $5 a gallon. I need help!)

    He bent me over for $500 total. No performance difference except using 12% more fuel.

    I spoke with Mr. Brewer and am relaying this message from him.

    "I knew this moron was an idiot when you got mad my spell check spelled your name incorrectly, you didn't get bent, you had unrealistic expectations. You claim that you read trifecta could add 60hp which is physically impossible, and you have no idea what you are talking about. Also, the tuner module is 430$ brand new, that was part of the cost you endured so I hardly call that "Getting bent over". If you couldn't afford the hptuners module, you shouldn't of bought it. But, have fun hunting for the unrealistic expectations that'll never get fulfilled. Mr Clearly."

    Just as much of a liar as he is when he advertises his tune. I'll just make two points:

    1. I have two free degrees from an expensive private university. No "moron" can say that unless he is a football player. I promise you I have never played a down of college football.

    2. I never claimed 60 hp from Trifecta. I claimed 15-30, which is what they advertised, and 15-30 more than Brewer gave me. (BTW, they gave me 40 on my Solstice.)

    Because people like you believe in him, and spread the Gospel of Brewer to people like me, who make the mistake of listening.

    Oh, and not being a "moron," I didn't pay anything close to $430 for the module. His charges to me were considerably more than to you, hence the bending over.

    and here we are again, me not looking for a tune for my LS4 because I have one, as well as a computer with HP Tuners functioning on it and a working HP Tuners cable that has tons of support for many vehicles, including my 2002 Silverado and my 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP.

    Trifecta seems to have been the wise and intelligent choice for you.

    Are you changing your mind about Brewer charging you 500 dollars?

    it also seems funny that you feel the need to advertise your reception of two free degrees from private colleges. Education does not denote intelligence. I would also denote that free means worthless.

    No, free means "paid for by the institution because of my objectively measured intelligence."

    Since you know more than me on this subject, can you direct me to someone who sells a useful HP Tuners tune? The forum section dedicated to that is basically empty.

    find a local dyno tuner. then you can rag on him in person. if your car is stock you are not gaining much at all. the most of the tune your gonna feel is the trans tune.

    or since you claim your so damn smart. buy some tuning books and or vids and learn to tune it yourself. no one left to blame but yourself then.

    98 Buick Regal GS, F body brakes, Caddy STS wheels, tinted tails L36 bottom end, lightly ported heads, 1.95 roller rockers, headers, gen 5 N* 3.0 pulley, FSIC, 42 lb injectors, a BrandonHall rebuilt trans, DHP tuned and AEM water/Meth injection https://goo.gl/gpV5kW
