Trifecta tuning is the way to go IMO Don't buy ANY cheap ebay ships.. they do nothing..

i wouldnt buy one of those e bay chips for anything!
i plan on using the trifecta tune also.
but if you want to go the chip route, use the jet chip. its a solid company, and a proven product..... thats my two cents.

How much HP does this the trifecta tune make on a stock cobalt, or does it require mods to work effectively. Just curious, as I heard some great things about it for the 2.2L. Also can you slap it on an automatic, or a manual only?

The tune is mostly to maximize the gains hoy will see from different mods. However the 2.2 could expect to see 5-10 whp from the tune alone.

On the SS/TC people are seeing about 60 + WHP from the tune ALONE!

Trifecta can tune any model, auto or standard..
