Performance

Has anyone ever thought of doing some upgrading performance wise to their trax? I have a 2018 with 1.4T and I cant find anything for it. I fabricated an 2.5" straight pipe exhaust which actually sounds better than the fart cans on most imports but cant find any bolt on parts.

I've only found one company that has a decent assortment of engine upgrade parts for the 1.4. Its Vermont Tuning. They have turbo upgrades, chip tuning and some other stuff. I haven't tried any of their products yet, but it looks a like a decent assortment.

You can try engine calibration from trifecta performance, since they're the best with affordable price.

I also like the idea that you can switch to the OEM tune by activating cruise.

Traxy - Have you done the Trifecta tune? If so, I have a few questions for you.

Not yet, e-mailed the US place 3 times they never answered back. I figure it was because I was Canadian so I found a re-seller place or distributor in Ottawa, I just emailed them this afternoon, seller says they answer within 24 hours so keeping my fingers crossed here.

Oh man! I've been dying to hear if it's worth it or not from someone on this forum and how easy/hard it is. It might be the determining factor to how long I plan to keep my trax.

I will do a follow up with as much details as possible when I get the cable and the software tune. Then I will report on the actual results with 87, 89 and 91 octane.

Will also try to figure out how to do a 0-60 test with the Torque Pro APP which would be the most interesting and more credible test .

The 0-60 is what I am most curious about. That is my biggest gripe about the Trax. Cant wait to see the results!
