Default diablo sport trinity vs bully dog gt

I have researched both of these products and I'm just wondering if anyone has a little more insight on comparing these programmers. Please let me know.

Thanks,

Jeff

I wouldn't get the BD. Go check out this post and you'll see why.

Though I guess it will come down to whether or not you want to get a custom tune down the road or if you want to be able to use it on a different vehicle. If you're going with to want a custom tune then you'll need the diablo.

Yup, like Gecko said, I would not even think about it, even if the Bully dog factory tunes are better than Diablo, at least you can move it from one vehicle to another without paying 250$ each time to do so, also the diablo is a programmable unit that can accept external tunes like hemifever and whitelighting, also if you want to play around yourself with it, its fully capable of personal programming. BD was great if you just wanted a tuner with the stock tunes and use it around on your vehicles but since there new policy its not worth crap.

you can check out the above mentioned link and also this one about Bully Dogs Bull Sheet.

Pride,
I'm just about to pull the pin and get one, any info you can give me as far pro's and con's and which Trinity did you get. Trying to decide on the Trinity or a Throttle Body. Any info greatly appreciated.

I wish someone who has a 2013 would chime in and help too....

Diablo has not released tuning for the 13's yet


I have used a BullyDog GT, Superchips Cortex and most recently a Diabosport Trinity (on my 2010 Hemi)
Trinity is hands down the Top Tuner out of the three for pure performance, only one to get me into the 13's NA (13.89/98.5)
... the others came up short and were promptly sold.

*Number of Display Gauges available
*Custom Gauge Layouts you can configure
*Custom Tuning Capable to match your mods
*Data Logging capabilities

Bullydog is telling me that there once a vehicle is returned to stock you can use it on other vehicles. I posted my email correspondence with them in the STICKY.
