There's tons of threads on this. Just use the search function and look through some of them.

Overall the Bully Dog has better canned tunes and the Trinity has options for custom tuning. If you're only going to do an exhaust and intake and no other mods, the Bully Dog is a better option. If you're going to start getting more into it doing a throttle body, maybe headers or a cam then the Trinity is better. Either way both are great tuners.

A throttle body spacer is completely useless. Don't waste your money. Because they fuel is injected after the throttle body they do absolutely nothing other than make a bit of noise. So you're essentially spending $130 for a whistle.

If you are sticking with just a CAI, and a Muffler stick with the Bully Dog tuner. As stated above

Junk the throttle body spacer, they are good for nothing but an expensive paper weight and annoying whistle.

If you are looking to do a Ported Throttle body, CAI, muffler, possibly headers I would go with the T1000 and a White Lightning Custom tune

If you are interested in any of these products let me know I will get you a really good ForumZ discount

Thanks
