When I reprogrammed by 2005 5.7 WK using my Diablosport Trinity, it was the transmission reprogram that made the biggest difference. Shift points and how quickly it kicked down to the proper gear is what it is all about...at least for me.

You will have to let us know if it improves mileage! Any other updates?

For anyone else interested in this system, I've recently ordered the kit from a good ol' Jeep Grand Cherokee friend known as Kolak... I know there's lots of sites out there where you buy this gear but don't forget to reach out to Kolak for those of you that have used him in the past. Every GC I've owned has had one part or another from Kolak. I'm excited to get mine in, once I do, I'll let you all know my review...

P.s. if you need contact info for Kolak, let me know.

Can't wait!

Just ordered the hypertec I will do a full writeup with video on it when it comes in. The price was right and I have had good result in the pass with piggyback system on my fiat 500 and srt4. Within a year I'll be jumping into 14" and 11' will go to father in law so he decided if he wants Trinity or whatever available.

Hi - new member here and just purchased a new 13 WK2 overland summit hemi. Noticed the erratic shifting, etc. right away. I'll be watching this thread for sure, (Im guessing the dealers don't consider the surging a problem ... ?), otherwise, my copy of the WK2 is great. I'm also guessing that if I flash an engine/tranny remedy in, bye bye warranty ... ?

Good to be aboard.

Rob

Supposedly DiabloSport has released tuning for the Wk2 Hemi? Anyone heard anything?

The DCX model is available ($500), dunno if that's new news. If you enter 2011 or 2012 Grand Cherokee in the search by vehicle box on the home page, it leads you only to the DCX. Many may waiting for the trinity, which doesn't seem to be available yet.

That's right, just noticed that the guy who posted about it mentioned "intune". not worth it to me for $500 with no HP/Tq improvements.
