That's awesome!!! I'd be curious to see what it looks like in Touring Mode as well. In the few reviews that show it, it's always in Sport Mode.

My white needle cluster does not have this capability after the upgrade. @GTPprix, is this feature possible on the 2018.5+ clusters? My guess is no, but thought I'd ask for clarification :)

It seems like there are some interesting differences between the two versions.
There is a reason behind it. You would expect the touring mode would display the map utilizing the whole space of the cluster - but NO, there is only 2"x 2" square in the middle of it. I'll snap some pictures of it later. Sport mode looks cooler)

Wow, this looks good. Thanks for the images. I'm nearly sold.

On a related topic... Has anybody used the 0-60 performance screen to check times on:
1. 87 vs 93 octane performance
2. Manual vs auto shift mode times
3. Stock mapping vs Trifecta tune

Would love to know the differences, if any.

Well done! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thanks for sharing the photos. This is one of the best upgrades we can get for North American "Insiginas".

I noticed the boost gauge only goes to 12psi, isn't stock level closer to 20? Also, does anyone know if this is a calculated value or from an actual pressure gauge?

I only tried it few times. First time it didn't work, probably because I didn't stop for long enough(or was still slowly rolling). I set it 20-40 then and it worked like a charm. Need to find place where I can do good test of 0-60 without putting other drivers in danger :ROFLMAO:

And it is not even going all the way up to 12, 8-10 or so.

Quite disappointed result 🤣 but I don't think I press the pedal all the way to the limit. 93 octane, 1 person in the car, 75 degrees outside temperature, automatic shifting, stock mapping.

It's almost like the TourX wasn't intended to have performance menus, why did GM even bother?! 🤔😂

I wonder if the G sensor accelerometer can be remounted 90* from its stock location to allow for accel/decel measurement like the old R34 GTR’s.

I was expecting a bit less, I think 6.5s is unrealistic, but was hoping for mid 7s.

Really shows how poor a performer the trans is. My old LGT wagon had similar power to weight and would dust this thing easily. But I guess those numbers make me feel better, so many here seem to think this car is quick and I kept thinking something was wrong with mine. I think both times you posted are realistic, I have a feeling it may have been less to do with temp and more just that the tranny cooperated. I have noticed mine seems to act a bit erratically, sometimes in the same drive it will jump off the line pretty good and others it feels like the turbo isn't doing much. Like an old school turbo...got to get the rpms up.

I think lots of people were relying on some car magazines' testing TourX on the track and getting 6.4 s times. In the real life - 7.5s feels right. We don't have launch control - so just getting it to 6.4s would require manual shifting and red line and hope for the best. I suppose cold weather should give you .1-.3 of the second simply because you are not intaking the warm air(at least this is my theory). I'm wondering what is the times for trifecta? At the end of the day, this is not a sports car anyway.
