Welcome to the Z, be sure to stop by the Newbie section to get a proper welcome.

If you do a search, you'll find that there are lots and lots of threads on this topic. Each has their pro's and con's, and in the end it pretty much comes down to personal preference.

Diablo Trinity is the only programmer to offer custom tuning capabilities and multiple vehicle platforms. The optional custom trans' features w/ Superchips is meant to be night and day difference once dialed in.

That was changed after the huge RamforumZ revolt, we got them to cancel that and now you can use it on any hemi you want.

Diablo Sport Trinity T-1000. Excellent Tuner, and I love everything about it.. And I haven't even got a custom tune yet. I am sure once I get that it will be even more awesome

The BD apparently has better "canned" tunes (read ... pre-installed on the tuner) than the Diablo does. So if you are planning no mods perhaps BD is the way to go.
On the other hand, Diablo is the only one that allows you to install 'custom' tunes - in other words a tune designed for YOUR truck and to match YOUR mods.
I have to assume that most of us with tuners are also planning other mods ... now, later, whenever. So the Diablo Trinity can actually "grow" with your truck.
I bought the Trinity planning no other mods, and I got a great deal from a forum supporter (Bullys). But I see now that this thing has a TON of potential and I'm hooked, more mods to come.
Bottom line ... both are great products with different benefits. If you are planning any mods, and want to get the most out of them, you will likely want a custom tune - only the Trinity will let you do that.
