Is it ok to turn traction control off via the Trinity and drive around? Or is it more like Dyno mode and should only be used for that?

I drove around with it off all day. My only gripe is that it shifts too early out of first and bogs in secound unless you get into it more than half throttle. I found it was better to shift manually in this mode.

Like Mike said mabye 10 hp/10 more torque. But look at my times so far, and I have not mastered the new settings yet. I went from consistant 4.5's or more to 4.3's. My best quarter mile time before was 13.00 @102 to 12.8 @106. Its worth every penny in my eye. Plus you can read and clear codes, datalog, use it for gauges. I am going to be using it for my wideband gauge with my LC1. Go for it.

I picked up my GCSRT8 last night from Mike at Diablo. I had hoped to get this thread up sooner, but had daddy duties last night!

From what I understand the rwhp gains is very minimal...10 rwhp at the most. With that said...it feels like a completely different truck. The throttle response is impressive, the shift points are now where they should be and the shift performance is awesome. To me it feels like a gain of 40-50 rwhp...the truck gets up and goes!

The Trinity system/tuner is also very impressive. From being able to modify the tune to monitoring the vehicles performance to even being able to capture a true 0-60 time. Just a cool little device. It mounts nice and neatly on the windshield...it seems to be a nice little package.

I will be spending sometime with it this weekend going through some of the different options, etc. If any of you have any questions...feel free to send them. I will do my best to help/answer them!

Big thanks to Mike and his team at Diablo. I am sure this will be the first of several more tunes to come!

Jeremy

Congrats man! Is this a custom tune or canned tune you are running on your WK2?

Magnusson-Moss act is there to protect you, as well as the guys at SEMA/SAN.

Be diligent with your mods, remove the tune before you go to the dealer, and you'll never have an issue.

I never saw a single warranty issue on ANY of the HEMI applications we support. Never

Thakns
Magnuson Moss only puts the burden of proof on the OEM to prove that your modification caused the damage. Basically, if you install the tune and your AC goes out, it should still be covered under warranty. However, if you install your tune and break pistons due to knock because you had too much timing and not enough octane, the bill is on you. Removing the tune won't cover you as the dealer can tell how many times the computer has been flashed. A good tech/service department can tell a vehicle was recently reflashed as well. I can assure you there have been dealers that have declined warranty work, both rightfully and wrongfully, because of an aftermarket tune. Best thing you can do is have a good relationship with your dealer and they will take care of u the best they can.
