What performance tuner to buy?
 
Bully Dog or Trinity or other? Need guidance. Ideally, I would want performance and mileage improvements, adj. for tire size, and flexibility to adj. shift points. Money is not the most important factor. Quality and ease of use are more imporant. My only performance upgrade so far is a K and N cold air intake.

go trinity or superchips over bully dog...

What is the rough number on your mileage with the diablo tuner?

In combination with a cold air intake and an exhaust, my Predator equipped Ram saw a 4+ MPG highway improvement. Around town, just a bit under 3 MPG.

I agree diablo or superchips over the bully dog, just from reviews I've seen. I have a superchips on 4.7L and love it. My friend had a superchips on his 1st gen hemi and loved it. Superchips has more trans features, diablo is beneficial as you can do custom tuning. Either would be a great choice.

or you can stack, custom diablo tune with tranny tune from superchip :) I wouldn't do this except for special circumstances but its a possible route :P

But to answer your question .. .DS or SC over the bullydog

i would go with diablo over any of the others

Diablo it is! Are small upgrades like throttle body spacer or better plugs worth the trouble to maximize the effect of the diablo? Are there any other small upgrades that are easy add ons that will contribute?

erm 09-11-2011 11:11 AM

Forget about a TB spacer, they don't help at all. And stick to the stock plugs unless you go to forced induction.

To maximize the tuning potential, go with a good cold air intake and freer flowing exhaust.
