Default 05' Ion Tuning

Here's the deal. I have a 05' Ion Coupe with Injen Intake, 2.4L Intake Manifold and LSJ Exhaust Manifold. I'm running untuned right now with no problems. I'm running stoich, but i would like to rid GMs "Power Enrichment Delay" and get a little more fuel to it.

But HP Tuners doesn't support 05' Ions and Trifecta has gone up to $300 which is way too much for me. What has everyone else done for tuning?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I could be wrong but I think trifecta is the only tune out there and they can crack the gm codes.

I have a trifecta tune, and I am very happy with it. I had them tune for my 3" MAF tube, tune out the throttle lag, and up the rev limit to 7k, along with tuning the whole fuel and timing tables. I'm really happy with how consistent and strong the power is, and the lack of throttle lag is great for fine control of the throttle and getting better efficiency. they can also tune your transmission if you have an automatic transmission.

trifecta dealer for the U.P. and WI. There is no two door ion. Proudly driving one of the last saturns produced before gm killed the brand.

Yea, that lag is pretty annoying. I hear nothing but good things about Trifecta, but before i had my mods is was around $200 for a tune and I was ready, but now it's like $300. I guess ill just have to suck it up and get a tune through them lol.

Apexi SAFC-II? I believe Sixthsphere has a write up on how to wire it. It's an option.
