Hey Curly. You really need to bring your car to our next Earth Fare show in Huntsville. It would be great to have your car on display. You would be the only SIM car there. Second Tuesday of every month.

Thanks for the order!

The Trifecta tunes are good and have a few cool features. They can do different tunes activated by traction control, cruise control or even fog light buttons. My only complaint is they are sometime slow to respond and get your tune updates. So just don't expect next day service and you will be good.

Best regards,

Tyler

I wouldn't do the ghost cam if I were you. My car stalled out on it last night on the moderate setting and I know of more than a few people who's cars have stalled out more than a few times on the aggressive setting. I'll personally be removing my ghost cam and the ecu tune as well probably. It's not like there's an improvement at all

Any other known way to clear the code? Only reason why id like to is to be able to use remote start that's it. I there's not another way it's not a big deal.

If you want a tune, I'd highly recommend looking into a tune from IPF. You can go with trifecta, just thought you should know about the ghost cam and lack of gains before spending the money on it.

You can clear it with a code reader every time it pops up. It's a little annoying but is a solution

Nice! We had to get the gaskets from GM, but they went out Friday I believe, so you should have them in time for a weekend install.

Best regards,

builds lookin good...

Agreed to what Lscamaro said.....Trifecta is not that good to me... didnt feel any gains and i "thought" the ghost cam was cool *until* the setting (all by itself) went from mild to aggressive from time to time, causing my car to misfire in traffic to where i had to limp into a parking area and delete the codes...

Its GARBAGE
