Question First Tuning - some starter questions...

Hi,

I have read all the documentation for my Trinity tuner, and read how to load a tune, save the original tune, then get data, then adjust fuel trims and all that. Also been monitoring the tuning threads here as well as on the Diablo forum.

Questions: I have the LS3, 6spd Man - in CA - highest 91 octane fuel.

  1. Should I use the 93 Performance tune? It says it's good for 91 & 93 octane. Or use the basic 91 octane tune?
  2. How will all my mods get taken into account? I have a street ADM CAI, JBA shorty headers, a 3" Zoomers CAT back exhaust, and a ported TB. No other engine/performance mods - just suspension.
Thanks!
Michael J.

First off, go to " http://www.diablosport.com/ " and create a members' log-in. All of your questions will be answered.

With those modes you will get the most benefit from Custom Tune (well worth the $$).

The Diablo tune is for 93 octane.

Hmmm...Mike L @Diablo said: "The93 tune will work best with 93 octane fuel." Since that was one of my questions...

Well, looks like I'll be holding off for some time ;( The Trinity would NOT powerup in my car. After 4 tries - since I've heard issues with bent pins - the unit where it plugged into the trinity started to smoke! :(

Been on hold for over 30 minutes now trying to talk with a support tech and get a RMA :(

More time to read...
