I finally desided to get a tune for my 16 ats 2.0 8 speed, could i have some opinions on the different tuners, good or bad, did quite a bit of research on different tuners, have no idea who to use.

I can only tell you that I am remote tuning now with Turbo Tim at ZZP. I have been hot rodding cars for years but with a Holley Carburetor and nitrous oxide. This is my first efi car and my first turbo car so I wouldn't know if Tim was the worst tuner in the world. I do know that my wife and I so far are very happy with how her car is running.

I've only dealt with Trifecta because they are local to me. I started with their "canned" email tune, than all the way up to 2 separate in-house dyno tunes. I may be the outlier here, but I can't express enough how satisfied I am with their work every step of the way. My car runs absolutely incredible. Can't wait to put it through Auto-X the spring.

I'm in the same boat. Out in NC, I have called around and seems like no one wants to even try out the LTG or knows much about it. I guess remote tuning it is and crossing fingers of not blowing up.

I just want the volumetric efficiency data corrected for fuel curve and erase rear o2. That's all.

Go on Trifecta's website and message them. Tell them what you want. Their software program comes with the obd2 cable and gives you full control of diagnostics scans and the ability to completely turn off any codes that pop up from o2 crap.

I messaged them and I think it was Michael who replied that I would need their elite package.

Yes, that is correct. You can re-tune as may times as you want with that package as well. As you add mods, you can tune the car with it. As mentioned, the software they give you has the ability to scan and see fault codes that you can permanently turn off or back on yourself. I've turned off a million o2 codes because of my downpipe and the stupid code the aftermarket recirculation valve throws with it.

Thats pretty neat. I get about every 3 days of driving the p013f and its o2 related. Just annoying to clear the fault. Its due to the zzp catted dp and 90 degree bung they gave me
