Trifecta Tune

Would it be worth it with a cold air intake and just an axleback? Or a waste of money?

to be honest, it would be a waste of money. If you're ready to spend 400 dollars on something, I'd suggest a ported intake manifold or a manifold insulator. They have great gains. The ported IM is a great mod!

I'm getting a Cold Air Intake and the tune would be for my birthday from the folks in 6 days! What is an intake manifold and a manifold insulator?

intake manifold is what your cold air intake pipe goes into. i would suggest not trying to be an ass or rude. Learn about your car before you start to modd so you dont do anything stupid that cost you a alot of money. the llt engine is very touchy. a cold air intake itself is not worth a tune and depending on the brand you will not see much gains.

If I wanted an intake manifold I'd know about it. I'm getting the injen cold air intake and I have an axle back exhaust. I've never heard of an upgraded intake manifold for the camaro.

Yes there is an intake manifold mod for our cars. I would also agree with cjt that maybe you should do a little more research on the mods out so you can choose the best one for you.

I might look into it. Does it void warranty? What are the gains?

I don't think a dealer will notice a port intake or throttle body but if they do may void warranty.

For the throttle body, i think it was like 5-8 hp. Not much. It's more for throttle response.

The insulator though will give you about 20hp off peak. It's a really good mod. It'll definitely be a bigger change than trifecta for sure.

surprised nobody has asked if your manual or auto.

you get improved shift points if your an auto which makes driving more fun...not of much use if your manual.

shouldn't really need a tune until you throw headers/high flow cats on there which is where the major air flow restriction is. the ECU adjusts fairly well on its own to airflow from CAI's, as well as an insulator, ported throttle body, ported IM don't require a tune until the major air restriction is removed, which is down stream of the engine.

maybe tracy can chime in on this as he is more familiar with these mods and when tuning IS highly recommended or required.

hope that helps.

If you are worried about voiding your warranty, A tune can void it too.

Go with the Black Ice-olater or Mace 25mm IM insulator first. You will see the best gains for the money $150 or look for used as these will not be effected by wear. Ported TB will get rid of that dead spot that is present when you step on it. Again, $150. If you are AT the Trifecta tune will be noticable in the shift points and will make all other mods play nice together. As others have said, slow down ,research and get the tune after you have all your mods done.
