HP Tuners is open for anyone to tune but you want to find someone who knows what they're doing, changes how auto's feel which can make a huge difference, but still have decent gains when NA especially if VVT.
Is there any other method of changing shift points with another scan tool perhaps?

Nope. Those are your only two options.

When I went turbo I wasn't going to deal with trifecta and when I got it taken off there was a very noticeable change in the power.

I've got a t3 turbo kit available to me with everything minus the manifold, i assume t3 describes the size/connection type? what kind of manifold should i get? i found this one that i think will work 06 07 08 Pontiac G5 G6 Ecotec Stainless Turbo Manifold | eBay I've got a 2008 2.2L

I know its off ebay but i can look for a similar part somewhere else if i have quality of product issues.

t3 is the flange that botls the turbo to the manifold so you will need a manifold for a t3 turbo. I think zzp has a t3 mani

also internal wastegate or external? that will also decide witch manifold you need

alright sweet, also if anyone here could help with this: where would i do my oil lines to the turbo? i don't want to drill into my oil pan to create a connection...

edit: external wastegate i believe, but my friend that sold it to me let me know what kind to get.
