Trinity Coming Today!

Ok so first performance mod is on the truck scheduled for delivery. I went with Diablo's Trinity after reading & researching, even if it's overkill for what I need.

Couple questions:

1. Is there anything more to it than just plug and play?

2. Should I look into anything to add to it in the way of simple mods?

3. Are the "canned" tunes enough to make the 600 worth it or will I need to have it dyno tuned?

Let me know some of your experiences. This is going on an unmodded 07 SRT

Re: Trinity Coming Today!

1. Yes...you need to up-date crom file via DS website (follow instructions), install drivers if applicable, and DS Downloader (all on website)
2. Intake and exhaust; a lot of SRT8 guys like the 4" BWoody and AFE StgII
3. CMR is the only way to go...get in touch with Johan, someone will post his email (I need to get a CMR tune from him asap, heard he is the BEST!!)

Yes! Contact Johan and he will have that beast running like you never thought before! Here's his email.... diablotoona@gamil.com... he'll inform you on what all he needs to get your running at its best. Good luck and let me know how it feels after his tune

Re: Trinity Coming Today!

You will love the toona power! The shifts, the mileage increase (don't come on here after first installing his toon and say you lost mileage, its your right foot putting a smile on your face!) The price is awesome. With a Bwoody 4" CAI and a 180* t-stat an X-pipe and the Toona's toon I went from 13.4 to 12.7 1/4's! DO IT!

Re: Trinity Coming Today!

Ok thanks for the responses. Do I even bother installing the tune before speaking with Johan? Even if it's just temporary?

Can't help to be excited and I'm truly a novice when it comes to all this haha... poor truck will probably never even see the track.

Speaking with Johan now through emails. Thanks!!

So how easy/hard is it to install the canned tune? I've never done this before so don't stone me haha... I just don't want to get in over my head.

Also, there isn't anything extra I needed to purchase other than the Trinity, or is there? Such as USB cables and what not?

Hopefully it comes with all the necessities but if not please tell me what I need so I can order ASAP.

Re: Trinity Coming Today!

Yes! Absolutely install the Diablo and enjoy your new found power. Then when you get Johans toon you will be saying "HOLY SHIT HOW'D HE DO THAT!!!". Its THAT noticeable of a difference. When I modded I installed my CAI then drove it around the block a few times, it was a noticeable difference. Then I installed the doable and canned tune and was thinking "WOW!" but then a few hours later I installed the toona toon. My jaw was sore the next day from laughing and smiling so much!

Re: Trinity Coming Today!

Everything will come with it as long as you bought it new.. or if you purchased from someone hopefully they gave you everything. Its quite simple to install a tune... just hook it up to your jeep and go through what it asks of you and simply wait as it loads and there you have it. its quite simple....
