Dammit . . . subscribed! I really want to hear how this tune stacks up - it is a "canned" tune right?

GTO you were currently running Hypertech if I remember correctly before the IPF tune?

I cannot speak for IPF but I can say Vince at Trifecta is wonderful to work with. I have a 2009 Cobalt SS Turbo that I have two different tunes for from Vince. I installed the regular tune for "normal driving" 22psi, 93oct. and one for the drag strip that runs pure Iowa sweet corn. I have had the tunes on my car for 60k with no issues.

I also bought the tactrix cable so I could add or delete the tunes as needed. I also can data log, check and reset codes off of my laptop.

I think one difference is that IPF...doesn't have ghost cam...correct me if I'm wrong but if they did/do I would seriously think about switching over provided the proof of the gains

I PM'ed Jesse about that, he said just ask at the time of order and they would do it.

I'd take the extra HP/TQ over the ghost cam 100% with no seconds thoughts.

Yes GTO was running Hypertech so his impressions will not be in comparison to Trifecta.

I wouldn't go so far as to say speculation. I'd say... unconfirmed data and customer feedback.

I haven't been following this really, has anyone that has Trifecta switched over or the other way around? Anyone going from stock to any kind of tune is probably going to say how amazing it is. It's all just hot air until someone compares the two on the same track on the same day or on the same dyno on the same day.

This is exactly what the OP said he was going to do. He has trifecta now, will be switching to IPF, and doing dynos, quarter mile runs, and giving overall impressions of the two tunes.

Cool, I'll stand by for results too then. I'm interested to see what the numbers are. OP you should look at your AFR and knock too when you're doing the tests. We can make the cars make a bit more power by running them lean but it's not good long term.

For what its worth....on the All gens Camaro Arizona car forum I found a thread where a member did find better results with the IPF tune as compared on the dyno to Trifecta. I quoted this in the IPF thread in the Sponsors section here in the V6 Bolt ons Tunes area. You can see exactly what the person said.

I agree that its not really just speculation, but according to what we are being told, this tune sounds like the equivalent to what you guys are seeing with the LFX which is pretty good stuff.

Is it true?? We hope to find out soon.

Yes that it my reasoning behind the hard numbers on each tune. Going to the track on black friday confirmed at Atco to get 1/4 mile times aswell as going on the dyno the following day to get a whp with my mods with trifecta, then time to test. Not trying to cause a debate on what tune is better. Just going to get concrete facts on each tune.

Thanks!

Matt

I've had no problem getting ahold of Jesse at IPF and talking for combined hours. Vince of trifecta on the other hand I didn't hear from even after 10 phone calls and almost a dozen emails. I gave up. Plus. IPF IMO is far superior at tuning the Bosch Ecu.

Yes, success! Just loaded the tune, short drive, car feels good. A more spirited drive in the morning.

Just opened my first Sam Adams Winter Lager. No more driving today.

Yes, already being used by somene local here.

I had no problem with the Hypertech. Very easy to use for someone looking for a mild tune with great options especially if your an auto.

Any initial impressions? I think you can tell we're anxious

Car runs like a raped ape!!! lol. The car has been running very nice before the tune especially with this great cool air so hard to tell on my short drive after the tune.

I'll find out more after some runs at Atco in the coming weeks. I have a nice base line from last year at this time.

I did 5 runs then and averaged 13.5 flat with a best of 13.45. Conditions should be about equal.

It won't be completly equal because I've added the 3/8" VMax spacer, MACE ported IM & Plenum spacer along with IPF tune replacing the Hypertech tune since then.

We shall see.

I have a feeling this may not be as an accurate comparision as many were hoping for, knowing that this year you have now added the above in bold.

Good luck at ATCO, I know you will run well there. As you usually do.

I will be waiting to hear the results and your final opinion of this new tune.
