Performance upgrades on a Trax are kind of a fool's errand. There aren't many (if any) parts made specifically for the Trax or that are compatible with the ECU. A Trax is just a Trax. That's not to say they aren't good little cars, I love mine (more than I thought I would when I bought it).

Yea......I agree. Hopping up a Trax? A waste of money. With the high center of gravity built in, it will corner like crap. And as far as the Drag strip? Yea......get a different vehicle!!
The Trax was made to be a "grocery getter"..........not much more.

Outside of maybe vent visors for the side windows and maybe a deflector strip or bra for the front clip, there are no real mods that are worth it on a Trax. You're not going to squeeze anymore useful horsepower out of that 1.4L engine, and it's going to be off balanced if you try raising or lowering the body and completely change the steering dynamics. If you want to have fun with it when driving, turn off traction control and shift down to M so you can wind out the gears to 4,000 rpm before shifting. That's considered "Sports Mode" on the Trax.

Ask me anything man! Coming from the NHRA world, when I got a trax for the utilitarian factor I knew it would only be time till I gave a her a little pep in the step! They are easy to mod and are relatively quick once modded and tuned. Don't listen to the naysayers.

I see you have a cold air intake. What else have you done?

NGK plugs in an engine designed for dual iridium? We'll see how long those last. HOPE you didn't throw the originals away.

Thats sweet! How are you liking the BigWheel compared to the oem snail?? My next plan was to to get the V3 with intercooler and injectors.
The v3 with injectors is awesome. If you do it, get the oil in and return lines and the coolant in and return. One of them will get broken. The oil return was the worst one. The intercooler may be my next part but I just hope it will fit! The 60# injectors with the hp tune on top of that stuff is great. Do you have different suspension or wheels and tires?
