No power like seat of the pants or no power as shown on the dyno or more importantly no difference in track times? G-tech or the like?

Not saying this is the case with you but butt dynos are very innacurate. Some guys claim their car is now a beast with an intake and I have problems telling much difference with a small shot of spray lol.

Do you have an A6 or M6? It used to be most programmers, with canned tunes, wouldn't do much at all for M6s, but there's a lot of tuning potential for the auto's. I don't know how much access there is for the A6 nowadays, but it was nice for the slushbox in my '02.

I recently installed the Predator. And my butt dyno was very satified. Why the 93 octane is that what area has? also making sre you have the right trans picked. Did it ask you to download your back up to it. I would reload it and try again. Dd you follow the instruction. Stay in the car turn the key on when it called for it. Keep all electrical accessories off or disconnected? There are a lot of little things if not done correctly that will mess you up.

Have we logged for KR?

Made sure you have good fuel?

Maybe try the 91 tune to see if it feels better?

when was your car built, is an even more important question.

Probably not a factor... Around last October GM changed the OS. Diablo followed suit with an update. I don't think you can even load the tune to the wrong OS...(I could be wrong, haven't tried it.) I have the old Diablo and a new car now so I'll be updating my Trinity soon.

Be sure you drive the car for a while before you judge the performance. Takes a bit to learn the new settings. Also your MPG should improve.

To my understanding, ECM codes change. Hence, why some companies look for newer built cars to crack the codes (ex. Vortech).
But I'm sure Diablosport is on top of that.

I have to agree with the op. I uploaded the diablosport canned tune in my m6 car and it was slightly slower. I tested the car stock w/ the trinity 0-60mph feature, then installed the tune, and tested it again. I went back and forth doing this for several iterations, and the diablosport tune was consistantly slower. I used the exact same launch method every time.

I dont know how soon, but yes.

We're still mapping out some of the stuff that will be needed for forced induction tuning so we can release it as a custom tuning application.

FWIW, every aspect of the Trinity besides tuning works in the V6 Camaros currently.

This is certainly not thenorm, and poor fuel quality is the most common culprit.

Have you tried datalogging to check for KR?

I logged every run. Overall, both stock and ds tunes had small amounts of kr at high rpm. That does point to bad fuel, which is odd since mostly use bp. I guess I could have had a tank of bad gas though. I'll perform the test again with bp gas when I get a chance.

I remember when I was running a Predator in my '02, I believe Shell was the recommended fuel; Chevron, at least at that time, was almost deluting their fuels with additives and seemed to make detonation come about sooner. Thinks have changed, but it won't hurt to pay attention to the fuel. Maybe run several gallons of 100 unleaded through there and see. My car was always particularly sensitive to KR, but there were never problems with a few gallons of 100

I haven't been on the forums for awhile, so excuse me if this has been answered already. I purchased the Trinity a several months ago and never had the chance to install it b/c the dealer installed the new OS and back in Dec; as far as I know, Diablo still didn't have an update for the new OS. Has this been resolved...?? I purchased my Trinity thru Janettyracing and they registered it for me but never sent me any update info. Thanx for your assistance.

Yes, all calibrations have been supported for months.

Load the U7194_1r07a.crom incremental update from the Trinity downloads page.
