How're you liking the trinity? I debated over the two before buying my pred. Are the add-ons worth the extra money? just curious to hear from one who has it.
not bad, I got it from ebay for a reduced price, so the cost difference was only about 150 bucks. I figured getting the multiuse system would be great just incase I decided to get rid of it and the extra tools (specificly I like the monitoring and racing tools) are helpful.

I will probably buy the dsp soon, the trinity i believe is the newer product from diablo sport am i correct?

A bunch of my SRT-4 buddies here in San Antonio run the DSP and they love it...but they want the full CROM software..i personally use the AEM Standalone on my srt 4, but for the ram im looking at the DSP

we go around an around on this...I've gone through 3 trannys in a span of aprox 10k miles...I was running diablo at the time too...I'm not blaming diablo because we were able to find a physical problem on my tranny (the 3rd time) ...dint catch it the first 2 times and just replaced the clutch's/steels... at the beginning when I first got my diablo (which was when it first released), the tranny acted really funny when i installed it...then I updated to a newer crom and that solved the problem..

interesting, not sure how a DSP would cause a physical problem with the transmission, to me it sounds like something mechanical with the trans....you would have to significantly add power to the engine (more than the 50 or so hp you would gain from a good tune) to hurt the trans- in the neighborhood of 600 or more hp

i just put a predator programmer in my 07 ram 1500, when i went to turn it on, nothing happened, the truck wont start. My instrumental cluster lights up with all the lights, and i plugged the programmer back in, but it tells me to turn my key on, but it already is. so im stuck with a truck that wont start, any ideas?
