General Motors has been on a real “turbo all the cars: kick lately, strapping on the boosting snail onto the engines of everything, from the entry-level Sonic to the Cadillac CT6 – and they’re just getting started, apparently. Rumor has it, that there will be a twin-turbo ‘Vette coming soon, and they’re even turbocharging family-friendly vehicles like the Cruze, Malibu and now even the mini-crossovers; the Buick Encore and Chevy Traxx.
With easy, untapped potential ready to be discovered buy the enthusiast, aftermarket tuners like DiabloSport are ready to provide the enthusiast with what they need to bring their daily-driven, family hauler to the next level. Because let’s face it, there’s quite a difference between your weekend warrior ZL1 and your grocery-getting crossover – DiabloSport is just here to bridge that gap just a little be closer.
Turning Up Your 2013-15 Buick Encore and Chevy Trax with DiabloSport
DiabloSport’s tunes for the 1.4L Ecotec engine platform create a massive boost in performance by increasing turbo boost, optimizing the air fuel mixture, and enhancing the throttle response. Tune installation only takes a couple of minutes and the results will be noticeable immediately. Their 93
octane tune brings a stock Buick Encore or Chevy Trax from 123 horsepower and 130 Ft.Lbs of torque to 146 & 173 respectively, all without even having to pop the hood!
In addition to huge horsepower gains, their tuners feature an “MPG” booster tune that has been proven to add upwards of 4 miles per gallon of fuel economy over stock- and that’s just day to day driving. A recent BETA tester for their 1.4L turbo tunes, Coy Patrick from West Palm Beach claimed:
“I got a 10mpg average increase on my… [car] as long as I keep it under 3k rpm, and this is city driving, not highway.” – Coy Patrick
Obviously, Mr. Patrick’s results were based on his relentless pursuit of fuel economy which may not be repeatable by everyone, but it was great to see that a Diablo Tune can create this much of a mileage increase! Other adjustable options on DiabloSport’s inTune and Trinity performance programmers are: gear ratio, tire size, fueling, timing, idle RPM, rev limiter, and the speed limiter. Plus the options for custom tuning that can calibrate for more aggressive aftermarket performance modifications. With DiabloSport’s tunes and adjustable options at your disposal, you can take full control of your ride like never before!
