My trinity comes in this afternoon Can't wait to load it in - first official mod on the vehicle.

Has anyone installed a 180 T-stat and does the Trinity allow you to adjust for this? Just wondering if anyone has tested and noticed improvements.

Next mods will be Catch Can (I know haven't installed one yet), 180 Tstat (only if shown improvements), and proper MOPAR or Arrington CAI once it comes out... Going to leave my exhaust alone until more options have been perfected...

0 STKN and LTKN is ideal. It means the knock sensors are not picking up anything and no timing is being pulled. What tune are you running? What fuel are you using?

im running the 93 tune with 93 octane gas from a exxon. Also when i try to go in and disable the MDS it comes back with a code saying the tune could not be uploaded, however when i go back into the modify tune area MDS is disabled. Anybody else notice this. Im new to this so im not sure if im doing something wrong

I tried to disable the MDS once, tune failed I load. I left it alone and didn't try again.

Well, sounds like the 93 tune is running good on your Jeep. Does it feel like its improved performance? Any numbers to compare performance? Do you have any performance mods?

I have a custom exhaust on the car and that's about it. It Definitely pulls harder on the top end I think. I didn't think to get and numbers while I was out. I was just having too much fun.

Okay, finally got the Trinity in yesterday and loaded up the 93 tune option last night. First initial impressions are good. I'm downstate in NY on long island so I really tested it out in traffic this morning getting in and around people. The car feels like it's running smoother, not idling as rough, the shifts feel alot quicker at the higher RPM levels as does the car also feels like it's pulling harder at the higher RPM levels. I don't feel the lag I was feeling between 1st and 2nd shifts. The throttle response does feel more responsive as well. I haven't adjusted any of the other parameters since I'm kind of new at this. I'll go out this weekend to actually test some 0-60 numbers, etc just for comparison (my usual 0-60 numbers are between 4.7 and 4.9 seconds - hopefully I can get this down a little bit).

A curious question about the Trinity is what gauges do you guys usually monitor while driving. I was staring at the spark/retard gauge this morning and did notice on the top right, that under full throttle it would retard spark between .5 and 1 at higher RPM levels - the bottom retard guage always stayed at zero. Is that supposed to be correct or within the tolerance zone?

My LT knock is always zero as well. However this morning on my way to school my ST knock hit 8 at WOT on the highway when I was doing an 80-110 pull. This worried me a bit and installed the factory tune again.

So do you add fuel here or retard timing?

Not sure really. That's why I went back to stock because I'm new to all of this and I'm not exactly sure what to do for it.
