I did some stock 0-60 runs first, the other day they were 6.96 seconds and about 50 degrees. Today about 21 degrees and 6.7 seconds....that was without the tune and just a Mopar CAI. Will be doing some after tune numbers and posting them for you.

That's a lot quicker than the 7.4 that I have seen posted.
Was this just a stock tune without changing any other perimeters ?

Yes, it was the stock 87 performance tune. Did another run last night 6.6 seconds, but as I mentioned it's the transmission that really benefits from the Trinity, no more bogging down, instant kick-down.

Hey Trelos, thanks for the heads up about the tune being available. I commented on your post on the Trinity forum the other day.

Re: Diablo Sport InTune DCX

New to tuning. I can't seem to get an answer from Diablo so I will ask here. Is there any harm running the 87 performance tune and using 89 octane??

I don't understand why they don't have an 89 octane performance tune since that is the recommended fuel by Jeep. Mike L from Diablo once told me to adjust the timing 2 degrees if I wanted to use 89 but I am a novice and don't know if that is correct and what that even means.

Thanks.

You won't necessarily hurt anything, but you won't benefit either. Just don't run lower octane than the tune calls for.

I asked DS the same question about adjusting the tune for 89 and heard nothing back. On my Mustang I can adjust the timing through my SCT tuner, so I imagine it's the same concept. However I'd like to hear directly from DS before attempting it with their tune.

Re: Diablo Sport InTune DCX

I'm new to tuning. IMHO I wouldn't mess with spark and fuel parameters simply because I don't know enough about them. Only thing I did was rich fuel by 3% in all rpms to account for k&N CAI. Besides that, I will leave everything else for the CMR tuner to figure out after I install headers and he does a custom tune for me. In the meantime, I did figure out how to drive my car in "park" mode. No rubbing, no lights on, no noises. Simply pulled a fuse out!!!!!!!

You'd be throwing away your money by running 89 octane with the 87 octane canned tune. One of the best things about the 87 octane canned tune is that you can "downgrade" from the factory-recommended 89 octane gas but still get better performance. DS has explained on their forum that an 89 octane tune wouldn't provide enough of a gain over the 87 octane tune to be worthwhile for them to offer. If you know what you're doing, you can adjust fuel and other things on the 87 octane tune to get the same results. So either enjoy the 87 or make the jump to 91 or 93.

Re: Diablo Sport InTune DCX

M2 fuse......controls air suspension and ELSD. Do not do it in bad weather cause you need ELSD.
