Hello everyone, great site and have been reading for weeks lol. I have a few questions around the Trinity as I'm trying to pull the trigger on this thing but like to be sure before dropping $600.00.

1. MPG increases? Are you all really seeing a good increase?
2. Interference with Keyfobs and GPS? I've heard that the Trinity interfears with these divices. Is anyone having this issue?
3. I also like my wires tucked away and neat, is anyone having issues with running the wire?


Basicly I don't have a ton of mods on my truck. Magnaflow is about it but I like the idea of getting everything out of my truck and boosting the MPG's. I also have a dyno shop near me that does DiabloSport tunes. Is it worth the money?

I love my trinity. You can get mpg increase if you stay out of the gas, which I DO NOT..
I have fact gps and get no interfearance with it or anything else. there are two bundles of wire that have a clip on the ty-wrap that fit the cable perfectly (probably for the techs reader when they are testing) I use those clips and coil the excess wire into the magazine/map pocket in the side of the center console. I have the suction mount on the center upright trim just under the 4X4 switch. Yes its worth the $ IMHO. I would but it again in a heartbeat

Pic of mine in this thread, any other ?s I'd be glad to help. Also check out the diablo section lots of good info there

I have the Predator and in combination with the CAI and exhaust, I saw a 4 MPG HWY mileage improvement. Around town improved too even though I didn't alter my driving style.

Man, I like that center console, wish mine had that. I'm trying to find a place on the dash to mount it with velco or something so it's not always stuck to the windshield.

Thanks for the replys. I think I'll pull the trigger on this and see what happens.

You should also look at the InTune by Diablosport. It's 200 dollars cheaper and has a lot of he same functionality. My Predator is fine for me...same tuning without the fancy screen. A steal at only 289!

I'm stuck on the Trinity, if I'm going to get it I want it all LOL.

So if I order straight from Diablo it's 599.00 plus regular shipping. If I get it on EBAY it's 599.00 with free overnight shipping. Any benifit to getting this from Diablo VS Ebay? As long as it's the T1000 and lists my 09 Ram 5.7 I should be fine correct?

Good luck with it. I'm sure you are going to like it. I like mounting mine down low on the console vs the windshield as we've had a rash of broken windows and gps's, sirius radios and tuners go missing here this summer. Damm smash and grabbers :(

I think I found a place for it just below the heating and AC controls and just above the fold down cup holders. If I can get it to fit there I'll just attach it to the dash with some good velcro, I hate sticking stuff to my dash but I think it will look pretty clean. I'll find out Thursday or Friday. I don't like to much stuff in the window, the GPS is plenty lol.

Went ahead and did a highway run last night, reset my MPG before getting on, drove 50 miles and turned around and drove 50 back, when done it read 20.2 MPG. After I install the Trinity I'll do the same exact thing and see what difference if any, hoping for a difference for the better.

I'm a little confused about the Crom files. I loaded the latest DCX_Gas with a 10/13/11 release date but then I look down the list and see one that lists U7164 with a release date of 11/21/11. How do I know which to load into the Trinity? What's the difference in DCX_GAS vs U7164?

Well, been driving most of the night LOL. Here it goes

All interstate driving at 65 MPH with the cruise set, went 50 miles, turned around and drove 50 miles back. I reset the MPG as soon as I engaged the cruise which was at the same point each time I started. MDS is ON.. I know it's the computer's MPG but here it goes.

Stock tune that came on the truck 20.2 MPG
Perf 87 Tune running 89 gas 21.8 MPG
MPG Boost 21.8 MPG

I find it weird that the Perf 87 and the MPG Boost got the same MPG

So there you go, as soon as I dump the 89 gas I have, I'll fill up with 92 and test that tune.

Yeah I dont find the mpg boost tune to be worth it either. In summer i ran the 91 tune and in wwinter I use the 87 tune and find the increase in throttle response is good (87) over the mpg tune which I find less throtttle response but same mileage per tank. So my results are very similar to yours. Not sayin I dont believe you can gain 4mpg but I sure cant lol

Yep, I'm thinking 4MPG may be out of reach, at least for me and it seems yourself. Going to try the 91 tune next when I fill up the next time. Curious to see what that does but I'm not expecting much more in regards to MPG.

I've been trying to figure out a few things on it. I messed with the Throttle Boost and took it all the way to 13.5 but I don't see any difference. What exactly does the Throttle Boost do?

Throttle boost gets rid of some of the lag caused by the fly by wire throttle control vs the old throttle cable. or torque managment if you prefer. try to light up your tires stock then try with throttle boost you`ll see what the differance is. I run at 17.5% boost and I wish I could run at 100 or no tq management at all. I am prepared to accept the cosequenses of my right foots actions ;)
