I am interested in how the log in procedure works and if its worth the time or not. Are you currently running the 93 octane canned tune that comes with the Trinity?
Yeah lol. When I joined I was living in Winnipeg hence the WPG-Ram name. I moved over a year ago and got around to changing it.

I'm running the 87octane tune with the adjustments Rock mentioned (throttle boost, rpm raised, shift point adjusted).

I just read an email Sean sent me about logging and what not, going to try and get it done this weekend but I've got family in for the long weekend so we'll see how it goes. Honestly though, this tuner is worth every penny, transformed by truck big time.

Yup i had them upgraded to his HID kit Nick.
It hurt though,my butt is still puckered,lol.

I also flush mounted a set of Rigid Dually D2's into the front bumper,boy do they make a differance too.

There's times i miss Sask,used to be the best place in Canada to find top-end.
I didn't even know the steering wheel turned till i left that province

The wiring tip isn't mine Hydrex,but after doing it on a couple trucks now,it's definitely worth while .

It's one mod i think that will pay for itself in fuel savings,if you keep the truck a couple years

Mods to date are a custom knife edged and ported throttle body
Intake manifold inlet ported to match throttle body
Magnaflow Catback dual exhuast (wrapped from cats back to mid pipe with header wrap to keep some heat in the system to help generate some lost torque from the dual exhuast)
Airraid CAI modified with a clear top cover (AKA S&B style cover) fed with a 3" ram air tube to the front bumper
Diablo T-1000 Trinity (my on-going nightmare) running the 93 octane tune
180F Jet Thermostat
Stock tranny thermostat has been removed,tranny now runs between 160 and 165F
285/60/17 rear tires.
Redline snythetic oil in motor and rear diff
Have to admit i was impressed,even the dyno guys who'd never ran a 4.7 Ram before said it was pretty impressive for 287 cubes
It might be a touch lean as it ran between 12.8 and 13.00 on A/F,but not enough to ever worry about.
The Diablo tuner has been nothing but a nightmare,but it does make power.
If the damn thing wasn't such a nightmare to get installed and sorta working right,i'd be reconmending the Trinity,but as it stands,if you're buying a Diablo tuner,i'd go for the Intune.
My Trinity still has issues with turning my dash lights and gauges on and off if you don't unplug it.

Do you have any pictures of the throttle body? First I've heard of a 4.7 unit being modified...but I admit, the idea has crossed my mind more than once.
