I'm running the SC Cortex on my 10 and the performance boast is phenomenal. Can't imagine going back to the stock tune.

Planning to leave relatively stock? Bully dog. Planning to modify (cai, exhaust, TB, TC, gears, etc.)? Diablosport Trinity w/ custom tune.

so the most i would do is exhaust with headers, intake and maybe polished TB. would the hemifever tune be beneficial? I have been looking into the diablo tuners my self.

No to SuperChips but I expect one by the end of Spring.

At least that's my deadline before I forget about loyalty [over many years and many tuners] and jump ship.

Eighteen months is long enough IMHO.

We'll see....

to get the most out of future mods if you plan on adding a ported throttle body, headers, tc, than yes to diablo sport with custom tune. You still can run bullydog with those mods but just won't get the most out of your mods.

^ agreed, im running diablo trinity with basic 91 octane tune and the gains from that alone in low and mid are really good. its very user friendly, custom tunes are a breeze via the DS downloader and diablo is very good with keeping up to date. overall very satisfied with mine, leaning towards getting the hemi fever tune!

I just order me a diablo t-1000. I am running with a Volant CAI, Catch Can, and am looking into Shortie Headers, Ported TB. I will be installing the T-1000 and Catch Can this weekend. Will post results.
