Thumbs down What a mistake...

Well, learning aint cheap. I bought my Trinity and could not have been more excited. After loading the perf 87 canned tune, I went for a drive to see if I noticed any difference. I didn't. I returned home, adjusted some settings, reloaded the tune and went for another drive. I still didn't notice anything.

The next day, I attempted to load the stock tune back to the truck. The truck didn't take the tune and now my truck wouldn't start. The tuner stated that it was already married to another vin number, however, the vin number listed was the same as my trucks vin number. Since this was on a Saturday, I had to wait until Monday to talk to tech support. Since I work all day Monday through Friday, my wife had to work with tech support and attempt to get the truck back running. Diablosport said that my computer needed to be reflashed. They said I could either remove my computer and send it to them with the tuner and they would do it for free. Or, I could have my truck towed to the dealer and have them reflash it. I decided it would be cheapest and in my best interest to remove the computer and send it to Diablosport. While attempting to remove my 2 connectors on my computer, it seemed that the connectors were stuck and were unable to be removed without damaging them. I got it loose, but it just wouldn't detach. So now, my last resort was to have my truck towed to the dealer and hope they don't see anything fromt he turner on the computer. The dealership said the connectors were broke and needed to be replaced. Also they said the computer has an internal short and needs to be replaced as well. So...$1300 later, I have my truck back and running.

What I learned from this is that I have a perfectly good truck as it isn't worth it to mess with a tuner. Just added a lot of stress and caused me to spend unnecessary money...

My intentions were to burn the rest of the 87 octane gas in my tank, fill up with 93, and load the perf 93 canned tune. I was also was looking forward to get a custom tune from Hemifever. Unfortunately it just didn't work out that way.

Sorry to hear you had issues. I've loaded mine with no issues and mine was bought used from another forum member.

That sucks.

What did you tell the dealer happened or did they even ask?

Just told them that I went outside to start it and it wouldn't turn over. They didn't ask much after that.
