Are you asking if the Trifecta tune will be as good as the one you're trying to do?

No I知 asking because before i get the Trifecta tune it asked like what mods and stuff i have done to the car. So I知 wondering if they going to custom tune the file for what setup i have on the car. Because i wanna get my car calibrated so it get the proper airflow so it runs smoother, better and i get the most performance that i can. I知 not sure if I知 making sense this is my very first tune lol

Ok I think I gotcha now. Yes this why they ask you specific questions on your mods, so they can best provide the proper tune for maximum safety and performance. Make sense? Now nothing is going to beat a good hands on street/dyno by a local reputable tuner, but Trifecta seems to have a good rep so I think you'd be just fine

That's very similar to what I have. Just so you know a tune isn't even needed with those basic mods. I'm still on the stock tune.

I hear ya, but just wanted you to know that with your minor mods, that your stock tune can easily compensate for that. But I understand what you're saying, and a good quality aftermarket tune will only make it even better

With minor mods like that, even a trifecta, or overkill will not change your performance much. It won't gain you much, if any actual power that you'll notice.

You can run the stock tune and it'll perform 90% as good as what you'll pay for a trifecta or overkill.

Trifecta has other benefits, though not sure how much you will feel it without the transmission part of the tune.

Being able to turn AFM on or off by changing the drive mode is nice.

I've had mine since mid 2016. It changed shift behaviour, which is the most noticeable thing it does, but I don't know if they do that for the locked tcm's.

I get the listed 0-60 times without special tires and perfect tarmac, and my mpg is still exceptional. You'll feel a difference from stock... Even if it doesn't make much of a difference in absolute numbers.
