Default Bulldog or Diablo???

Ok so we finally have a tuner for the 2011 Hemi's!!! Now the question is which one to get. Anyone have any opinions or had any experience with these? Pro's and cons of each? The Trinity from Diablo looks very nice.

Bullydog not Bulldog sorry

I haven't seen any on the bullydog yet. I am getting the trinity soon due to the fact you can have a custom tune done for you specific vehicle. Every site that I've looked at the trinity has them listed for $599 I found a site that the guy (hemifever) sells them for the same price with a custom tune or around $475 for the stock unit. http://www.hemifevertuning.com/diabl...sp-trinity.htm

I have the Bully Dog. I picked it up from AutoAnything for just over $400. It was out first and had the gains I wanted. I also figured if the Diablo was that much better I had 30 days to return it. The $475 above from Hemifever, with his tune is the way to go if I was to to it right now. I thought he was at $599 with a tune. I have very mild mods and except for setting my e-fan temps, don't see much need to go through the aggravation at this point and spend more money. I also don't intend to do heads/cam/headers but if I do I'll sell my BD and get the Diablo and custom tune.
Hope this helps!
Joe

Torque Management can only be adjusted in custom CMR tunes from HemiFever or Diablotoona (Johan). The can tunes have a little bit of it written in, but it can't be adjusted any from the handheld tuner.
