Default Diablo or Bully Dog ?

Ok guys, curious if its been long enough with the 2012 tuner releases for there to be a consensus on which unit delivers the best performance ? I have a Flowmaster exhaust and KnN CAI as well so was wondering if theres also some feedback on adding am aftermarket Throttle body for added performance ? any feedback is much appreciated !! Happy New Years to you all !

Moes 85 mm TB if your not getting headers or much else,Moes 87 TB if you are,and for a tuner if you are getting a custom tune,Diablo Trinity.The performance canned tune with the trinity on my truck did not work as well as the performance canned tune for the BullyDOG.

OK. So I'm also looking into getting one of these tuners, but I have no clue what one to get. I get the "canned tune" aspect, but how do I know if I need a custom tune. The most I really plan on doing with my truck would be to add an air intake and maybe put an exhaust on it if I get a wild hair up my butt. Everyone would like to get more horse power and torque, but I would probably want to use a fuel mileage tune more often for my out of state hunting trips so which tuner would be best for me. Would a custom tune be needed at all for anything I plan for my truck? Do both of these programmers offer something that would help with fuel economy? I've never owned a tuner before so any information would be nice.

I had a 300 srt8 which I did intake, moes throttle body, T-stat and diablo tuner which really unlocked the car.. I'm looking to do the same for my 2012 5.7 Dodge Ram outdoorsman but I can't find a programmer for 2012 on any web sites...where could i get tech specs for stock throttle body and T-stat on the 5.7 hemi??

Spoke to Diablo today, asked if there unit will work on my 2012 4.7l, they said no

Spoke to Bully Dog today, asked if there unit will work on my 2012 4.7l they said

"Our tuner 40430 will work on your truck with the 4.7, You can get up to 30 more horse power on the premium setting.

Kevine"

So seems BD will work on the 2012 4.7l, something to think about.

Just got the Diablo Trinity T1000 from Hemifever. Didn't show the 2012 . Got hold of Diablo Sport's support tech and they installed their updates which include our 2012's.
Great people to work with. Both Hemifever and Diablo Sports.

Question

Another tuner newbie question - Do I need to buy my own tuner or can I pay someone to do a tune for me?
