If you mean mechanical or chip based performance upgrades. NO

Maybe take it straight to a tuner and see what they say?

Guess I was wrong. This looks like a quality product and even has gas miser tune that keeps boost off under 3000 rmp.

obviously blows up the warranty.

Now that would be of great help. Even just running the 91 octane too would be ideal. An extra 29hp and 42lb-ft may just look like numbers but at the end of the day, the powerband will be changing and you'll definitely feel it.

yeah i can find stuff all day for the 15 and 16 models but nothing for the 17, and as far as warranty goes they have to be able to prove that the chip its the number 1 cause of the failure, i used to work for a dealer ship and people would bring in brand new cars and trucks with chips in them all the time. ive been looking into the trifecta tune, i am waiting to hear back from them too see if they are coming out with a tune for the 17.

Trifecta also changes the programming on the Automatic transmission, doesn't have a display however. less functionality but from what I've read. Everybody likes it and for those with the autobox you would see more of an improvement as the TRifecta probably holds shifts longer.

When I was younger I never owned new cars anything I wanted was already being made.

When you buy the latest model, not being able to buy aftermarket parts comes with it.

Sometimes you can adapt the older model parts to the new car, but most of the time its just experimenting.

I have the Diablo for my Silverado, It makes a big difference in everything. The trans shifts better, better gas mileage and noticeably more power. I have not yet bought the second license for the Trax.
