Not sure if someone has said this since I did not read through the thread but the Trinity by DS has all the FUN you could want haha. It is the same as the predator but with all the fancy display. The other thing is that the Bully Dog is fine for what you want it for. If you really want to get into some performance modding then I would say go with DS. The only thing is that the BUlly Dog name is associated with Diesel tuning rather than Gas

got my trinity today, just installed the software and hooked it up. I'm going to go out tomorrow and record a few 1/4 mile, 0-60, ect. runs before I tune it so I can see what kinda gains I get. Is there a 91 octane tune I can download? it's hard to find 93 around here...

I think you made the right choice, best of both worlds! You have monitoring and performance. I bought an edge because of all the features, but switched to a predator for better tuning functions, best of all MDS disable!

Bully Dog makes awesome stuff for diesel motors but not for gas motors. Stay with Diablo!

Thanks for your opinion, I haven't looked into the DSP or superchips....I'll have to check em out. From what I've seen both the bully and predator offer similar maps, is there something specific the bully is lacking that makes less power? Also does anyone know if any of them can turn off that damn seat belt alarm? Also with the predator do you just plug it in to do the programming and then take it out or do you leave it plugged in?
To shut off seat belt alarm start truck with seatbelt done up, when seat belt light goes out you have to unbuckle and rebuckle the belt at least three times ending with the belt latched in ten seconds then shut the truck off. if you have succeeded the truck will chime once. The audible alarm is now shut off but as long as your belt is not latched the red seat belt light will remain on.
