12sport will become famous soon enough
Default Who's tuned their 2012 with the Trinity?

I've been disappointed by previous Diablosport products not delivering on the listed features so my question:

Who's actually running the tunes on a 2012 1500? How are you liking the results? MDS/TM/Shiftpoints ACTUALLY adjustable?

Thanks for any info.

bump for some more feedback on this topic... i just put the tunes on my 2012, not all impressed with fuel mileage even with the tunes...economy tune at 70 mph and im still only getting 17, no change from stock...i installed exhaust,intake,tonnoue cover,oil catch can, and now the diablosport tuner in hopes for hitting 20mpg ... any adjustments we need to make to the tunes for having exhaust and intake installed?

Just did a trip to raleigh nc..It's a hour each way and fairly flat and only handful of lights. i tried 3 of the tunes from diablosport. First i was using the 93Perf tune just how it comes and was getting 16-17 mpg at 60-65mph driving...i wasnt pleased with that so i went to the Fuel Mileage tune(with MDS turned off) and got 15.5 mpg at 70-75 mph driving. i realized that tune utilizes the MDS alot and im looking to have it disabled so i switched to the 91Perf tune and i was really pleased! I just did a trip to the beach and was getting 15.5-16 mpg at 70-75 mph driving, with this 91tune installed and MDS turned off i was getting 18.5 at 70-75 mph driving and 24 60mph driving...Its really easy to turn the MDS off just by going to modify tune before you install it...for driving around town it is awesome!!!! no more vibrations and weird shifts at low speeds and the throttle response is always right there.
Well hope this helps a couple of ya out, please give more feedback on whats working for you with this tuner. Keep this thread going since these tunes just came out for our 2012s and theres alot of guys on the ropes on weather to buy it or not

Just a FYI about my truck so you can relate to yours...i have a 2012 4x4 5.7 quad cab, 3.92 gears, 2.5 leveling kit, magnaflow ypipe and muffler, k&n intake, oil catch can, and tonnoue cover...thats about all i can think of that would reflect on the Fuel economy/performance

And for 0-60 time it went 7.4 to 6.9...i think itll do better in the manual shift mode, the shifts are real firm but wierd at full throttle with the tunes. o and to get to 6.9 0-60 you cant launch full throttle lol it just lights the tires up

Hi Chris, I got my T-1000 late this afternoon. Did not have time to tune the truck yet, but did get the tuner updated with the 2012 tune. that was a real task for me. I am not to computer wise. But I finally got it right, (I think). Tomorrow I will tune the truck. I hope it goes easier than the downloads. I have used Superchip tuners for years. I think they are easier to use.

I'll post an update after I get it tuned. I did not buy my T-1000 for MPG either, but it will be good to gid rid of 4 cylinder drone, raise the speed limiter, and if I can get some more power that will be nice.

Love mine! After my 6" lift and 37" tires, my mileage sucked....which I expected with my 3.55 gears. After doing a 87 octane tune, MDS is off and my mileage is at least at stock if not better. I'm looking forward to summertime numbers!
