Cone intake will do very little to nothing.

Headers/exhaust manifold probably won't do anything until you go big turbo. Even then it is probably more to keep egt's down more than anything.

Typically for a turbo vehicle:
-ECU tune
-exhaust. (3") turbo back.
-TIP (turbo inlet pipe)
-front mount or more efficient inter cooler with piping
-big turbo
-go crazy...

Maybe at some point intake manifold but the oem might flow just fine. Hard to say. I've seen where oem is great and other times they are garbage.

I logged mine and the reply was it runs real nice,

I know that the select-a-tune is not working on 2013 as of now, I just today tried another tune from Vince and it didnt work out.

WOW!!!! I installed the upgrade this morning. Went smoothly and not too long for both the enging and transmission. Took it out and you can really notice the difference. Mine is on all of the time whether cruise is on or off. Going to run it for a couple of days before I do a data log. You really do need it!

With more driving, I notice new things. There is definently a torque steer with the upgrade on. It doesn't take much to get it moving. Have to feather the gas pedal to keep it from turning over the tires. Now if only they could squeeze out another
20HP.

Do you Verano owners think it would be worth it to put a Trifecta tune on my 2.4 Verano? Any other mod I would do is install a K&N filter. Thanks for the info in Advanced. :)

Avoid the K&N filter. All it does is filter less quality allowing in more dirt.


I don't know much about the 2.4 tune but gains are not typically great on a normally aspirated motor.

Hey BNR,

what are we talking about in HP/TQ # gains for the 2.0T ? I don't see anything listed either here or on your site. I'm interested, but I don't like to to fly blind...

Trifecta's homepage Vince says the 2.0T in the Regal or Verano 30-40hp & 70lb-ft of torque. You send in your datalogs for fine tuning for the gas used in your area and elevation.

Re: Trifecta Tune for 2.4 LEA (non-turbo)

Any Idea of HP/TQ increase for non-turbo, 12 - 15 hp?

As the Turbo passes 10,000 miles(3,000 on the tune) I finished up a 3" intake that leads to the front bumper area. With the 130 mph raised and Mr. Acura TL was no match from highway speeds on up three times in a row. I finished off the tank at almost 38 mpg calculated by hand.
