Anywhoo, just thought I'd add my 2 cents. Mr snrusnak is the reason I went with the S.C. cortex so I'd listen to him and pick his brain a little if I were looking around for tuning info.
Cool man glad I was able to help you out. Where in FL are you?

I think I'm going to switch to the 87 performance tune(at least for now) seeing as gas prices have gone insane. Used to be a ten cent premium for each higher fuel grade. Now 93 is like 60 cents more than 87. Sucks.

If a 93 or 91 tune feels slower than a 89 tune,then you probably have some
knock.
If you have knock your ECM will pull timing and fuel,and you will notice less power.

Just because its a canned tune,does not mean it will work in your truck.
Datalog for ST and LT knock,if you have any,then fix it.
Usually its caused by the exhaust vibration from not using stock hangers,or something is touching something,headers etc.

Diablo Trinity has the 87, 91 and 93 Tunes. I haven't seen anything on a CAI tune on the trinity but I just got it last week. Im running the 93 tune now. When I first installed it, I went with the 87 tune but I got a lot of ping at the higher end of the RPM band at WOT just before she shifted from 1st to 2nd. I still have a little ping at the same place with the 93 and I'm trying to get that worked out. Not really sure how I'll get it done but I'm thinking with a HemiFever tune I may be able to eliminate it.

Lemme tell ya, the 87 tune was night and day different that the stock and the 923 tune is night and day different than the 87 tune. It' slike a whole new truck. My biggest problem now is that I want to drive it MORE and mod it MORE! lol.

I get my T1000 today, i was going to try out the 93 tune ( we have 93 gas around here ) while i send my stock tune to bully's to have WhiteLightning tune it, He is doing a performance tune with tranny, then a tow/haul tune with tranny for me. So hopefully it will be a huge difference and worth the money it cost me.

Oh and as for the cai tune, there is none. On diablos forums they say they did not make one for the hemi because they think that the stock intake does just as well as an aftermarket intake.
This is not true the stock intake still takes in more heat and more restriction
