TURN AROUND TIMES:
Due to the popularity of the product, Trifecta reviews datalogs on a first-come, first-serve basis. We are not the same company as Trifecta and cannot guarantee time estimates for tune updates.
If the log was submitted without any feedback, or indication of a major drivability problem, Trifecta will make every effort to analyze your log, and if needed, provide an update to you in 1-2 weeks.
In many cases, Trifecta’s follow-up will simply be “everything looks great”. This does not mean they quickly skimmed your datalogs and just made that conclusion, or otherwise aren’t putting quality effort into it. You will note that the factory doesn’t hand-tune every car they sell. The same is true of well-written and tested custom tunes. Trifecta spends between hundreds and thousands of hours testing the products they offer, and in many cases the tune is simply spot on. This is especially true if stock, or near-stock vehicles are being tuned. Be assured that every log is reviewed with the same amount of discretion and attention to detail.
