Talking WAMS vs. Trifecta Tune

Which one of these tunes would be considered better? or are they pretty close or is there a better one than both?

How do you actually tell the difference in quality of a tune? And I was on zzperformance.com looking at the ecotech engine stuff and they recomended the trifecta?

A lot of cobalt users go with the trifecta tune. I'm sure it would work since the motor and PCM are the same. But I like the WAMS. It was developed by a pontiac owner on the forums here and I would think the support would be much better then that of the trifecta tune. Chances are it'll yield the same results.

You should join the Cobalt SS forums as well. I did and learned A LOT from them regarding the 2.4 and the 4spd trans. I know there's info all over there on the trifecta tunes.

Vince has great customer service reviews. There's probably a reason so many people in the GM community trust him.

A dual tune? Is that like it's tuned to run either 87 or 93 octane, it'll adjust to what you put in?

Vince does a lot of tunes where
You can choose between an economy tune and power without the need for a reflash.

Yeah I have the orginal GMPP Tune on my solstice if I turn on my cruise control and I have his custom tune on when its off. you can also customize it so its the other way around with the tsc button and what not. Also at least with my solstice its a custom tune not one size fits all tune. You plug in a datalogger to the OBD2 port and send him the files for him to make it suit your car.

I like the concept of a dual tune. Just turn off TC and it's all more aggressive. Turn on cruise and it's saving crap tons of gas.
