i have trifecta and love it, its tuned for your car specifically. he sends you a generic tune then you data log and get it right for your car. with trifecta you also have hide a tune which hides it from the dealer and select a tune so you can run your car in stock mode or tuned with your traction control button in competitive mode. i would go with trifecta vince does a great job imo

my car still has a warrenty. but with all my mods i totally voided the drivetrain. do you recamend doing both and doing the hide or just hp? the local shop guy said hes waiting on the hp for another car he has to tune and said hp can tune my whole ecu pretty good. but then again i still have a body and minor b.s warrenty and thats how my car got messed up the first time. i took it for a recall on the power steering and they "serviced" and flashed me. those asshole. so now im stuck with the headache and whole in my pocket to retune it.

i say check into ZZP performance its only 199 for the tune and i love mine gives u 22psi raises the rev limiter to 7Grand and i totally think its worth it not putting trifecta down but i was told pretty bad things that its just some guy that does it in the garage and charged 400$ but its up to u i say ZZP FTW plus the dealer cant see u have this done

You can also buy a Apexi piggy backs that will save you a lot more money instead of getting a tune every single time.... Just my opinion.

So every time that you add a part, then you tune for max power by just downloading the MAP.

Any questions about the Balt, all answered here:
