Got my Diablo Trinity Yesterday
 
So i bought a used Diablo Trinity off craigslist locally. Guy wanted $500, ended up doing it for $425. I had to buy a tuner anyway and figured this used Trinity wasnt much more that a new Predator. Now i just need my tranny done so i can try it out! He's tearing that down for a 3rd time today. (going on 5 weeks now)

I did hook it up to my Girlfriend's Mazda 3 and it powered up and let me use the 0-60mph timer. I installed the downloader software to my laptop last night and updated it. Cant wait to try it out. Im thinking about taking it to the tranny shop to see if it'll pull the TCM codes. Not sure if it does that or not.

here are some pics

See for yourself bro. Its a very capable tool. I would buy one but I do not like the bulkiness of it. There is no where to mount it in the cabin. IMO

Yea the suction cup kinda sucks. After looking at it for a while last night, it seems to me the buttons on the right side are not needed as long as the touch screen is functioning. The only thing holding the case together are few phillips screws. Im not really sure where i'd put it but i've already thought about pulling it out of its current case and making some type of custom thing for it. The main thing i would change is where the cable enters into the bottom of it. IF you could find a decent place to install it, that cable and connector add another 1.5" to the height of the thing. The receptacle for that connector is probably hardwired into the circuit board though. I may open the case tonight. I'll be sure not to break anything, just want to look around :)

SICK!! Keep us posted with feedback as I was planning on buying one this week...just had a hard time dropping $500+ on a tuner, but i gotta get over it HAHA

So far do you like the interface? Was it easy to update and install the software on your computer?

Yea the computer part was easy. Not being brand new it came up as already registered but i guess that doesnt matter i was still able to update it. the first thing i liked was how fast it processes things. Compared to my iPhone 3g this touch screen responds very quickly. I just havent been able to install it in the jeep yet. I dont plan on using any of the tunes in it, just going to wait for the custom tune so i dont hurt the engine!

Keep an eye out on CrazedList. Its like Craigslist but you can search more than one city at a time. I just picked all major us cities and searched and just happened to find one near me. I just justified it as i had to buy a tuner anyway and for an extra $75-$100 i have one that looks cool and does all the other functions

That's pretty cool! i would stuff it in the overhead console. it would be nice and stealth.

Man that's a good idea Acid! Now I really want my Jeep back so I can see how to make that work! Some basal wood, bondo, and paint and I could have it looking factory. I'll just have to store the sunglasses somewhere else :)
