Benefits of trifecta tune?

What is the benefits of the trifecta tune? I've been hearing people say they don't feel nothing different and some people say they car feel slower after the tune. I honestly feel my car is where I want it. I have black ice, ported tb, LM exhaust, and a injen LT intake. And I love it all but I really like the ghost cam. But what is the benefits of the trifecta tune? And no I don't plan on doing any other mods besides Cosmetic

If you like sound and thinking on get headers tune help to erase cells, and beside Ghost Cam open your car from passing the computer speed limit... give you complete control of your car... i did it, don't regret it!

When I had my 2010 and installed the tune my car came alive right there. even got a little better after the first couple runs. I personally think it works better with some mods to the motor. Cai ,headers,intake spacer,throttle body,ect

Really don't want headers. So what else can I benefit out of without using headers

So when I hear people saying they didn't feel a difference and it seem like it made their cars worse is a lie?

With the install of the vararam and throttlebody the tune just made everything work better.

When I got the Vararam youn could feel the dead spot at 2000 - 2500 more
With the throttle body that fixed the dead spot.
and with the tune the car came alive, it just felt better.

What came alive about it? Because some people are saying its a waste and others are saying it made their car come alive.

I don't feel it made the car worse but if I were to do it again, I wouldn't get the tune. When I bought my trifecta, there were no other options so it was them or nothing. I know a lot say it made their car better and more power to them but you also have to remember a lot just want to validate their purchase so they experience a placebo effect. I personally experience no change. It's the same with or without the ecu tune.

It went from dull, to exciting to drive. Where it wouldn't even break to tires loose, to right out lighting them up.

I found out I could run a tenth faster in the quarter without the trifecta tune just recently. I believe trifecta can make good power. I don't believe they can do it remotely. To me it doesn't seem possible to know if you are making more power by looking at a datalog. Then again I have a few more options for tuning with the LFX. Only reason I am keeping it the way it is for now is the speed limiter as well as the rev limiter I had adjusted slightly. I have noticed my mileage went up but to me my car feels really doggy most of the time.

I heard that speed limiter and stuff is for the lfx engine not the LLT and if that's not true. Why am I able to reach top speeds without a problem it seems like
