Default 2011 Diablo Result Threads...Where are they?

I've been seeing posts about how everyone was waiting for the Diablo tune to be available, and now that it is, where are the posts? I'm dying to hear about your results!

Are you still waiting for them to be delivered, or am I looking in the wrong place or what?

Installed mine wednesday night and took it out for a test spin with the 93 perf tune. Turned off tranction control and it just roasted the tires all the way through first into 2nd gear. Shifts are a little better but once i hit maybe about 70-80 mph it kind of feels like its falling a little flat on its face. Im sure some custome tuning can fix that but for a canned tune it felt good. The trinity itself is just awesome, the drag tree with the 0-60/100 and 1/8,1/4 functions are awesome. I havent messed with the trinity to see what are all the parameters i can change but maybe i'll get a chance to tomorrow afternoon.

Overall i think its worth it and its nice finally having a tuner for my truck. Oh and my mods are AFE cai and a 14"mufflex.

Thanks for the review! I am waiting "patiently" for the 12's to be released. I have had my trinity sitting here on my desk for 2 weeks....

May I ask, when you say turned off traction controll. Did you use the tuner to do that, or use the button under the radio?

Just the button under the radio but you can also disable it through the trinity which I have not done. With traction control on(button) it'll roast the tires about halfway through first now before it hooks. Seems like the canned tune as disabled some of the torque management.

It had been awhile since the last time I've driven my truck like this and it had never went sideways down the road in first gear so it was kind of a surprise to me that the canned tune made that much of a difference. After reading TheBlackHemi's thread i'll most likely contact Hemifever in about a week when I get my next paycheck.

I know the feeling, I bought my R/T last year in May only to find out that same week that there was no tuner for it. Hang in there, atleast now they've got tunes out for the 11 Rams. I would imagine it wont be much longer for the 12's.

I went on a 600 mile trip today and i mst say im a little disappointed. I was hoping that with the performance tune i would at least pick up 2 mpg with the trinity and the vararam but i lost 1 mpg to 18.8. Even the mpg booster i on 93 octance only got 18.7. I like the performance tune alot it really makes the truck shift alot better and i can really feel the difference and with the MDS turned off i have finally elminated the drone from the flowmaster 10 series.

All together i really like the product. I didnt buy it for mpg improvment but was hoping it wold help a little. Thats just my two cents
