trifecta tune questions

hey guys so just wanting to knw some general info on this tune. Those that have gone with the trifecta tune for there v6, do u guys like it was it a waste of $$ in ur opinion? The only tunes i have heard from them are the Ghost Cam and E85 tune, is there any other tunes they offer for more power?? I also have read that you will need to put premium gas into the motor once you get one of there tunes, is there a tune where i can just put low end gas ( regular, think its 87 out here, could be wrong ). Any help would be great, tx guys.

The tune gives you some noticable power forsure especially in acceleration.

But im noticing its been throwing off my CEL. Idk if its the car thats junk or the tune needs to be adjusted

I thought I noticed a gain but just for my own purposes I set my car back to stock. I noticed a change in how aggressive the car sounded in higher rpms but when I ran the 1/4 I ran an identical pass as with my tune. Worse conditions but ran a 14.27 at 98. That's with a 2.1 60'. I only got a 14.25 at 98 with a 2.0 60' on a cooler less humid day with my revised tune. I can't really see any performance gains as of yet and have left my car with its stock tune since my drive ability dropped. Even after a couple revisions for the car stuttering between shifts it still does it. Only thing I could see is find a local place for a dyno tune. That's what I'm going to end up doing. If you go with trifecta I have a cable I no longer need lol.

Oh it's a great price. I think the issue is that there are so many customers now. Like I said above. I just can't see a justification. My car actually is running worse than stock. Just installed my revised tune back into my car and ran it 200 miles today. Same as before. Runs rough at idle and not a very smooth power and compared to stock. Just feels sluggish compared to stock until about 5k rpm.

I've heard from users that its a waste of money and I've also heard its a great bang for the buck now, night and day difference. I got my tune in yesterday and my cable should come in Tuesday. I'll have a review posted after loading the tune of my first impression.
