Cool Trinity T1000 - Day one .. initial impressions

*** First off a HUGE nod to Andrew @ Bullys Performance! Andrew set me up with my T1000 & Vararam. Excellent customer service displayed in our 1AM tech talks sorting things out Thanks Andrew!

`````````

Last night I installed the DS software, and updated everything, and today when I went out I parked in town (not too far from the dealership in case I mucked something up *L*) and hooked up the T1000 to set things up. Super easy - picked the 87 oct tune, and then 'modify' so I could edit the tire size. Saved the stock tune, wrote the new tune to the truck and went for a drive.

At first when I started the truck initially, with the window down, the exhaust note somehow sounded more sedate....that didn't last.

I headed through the city, and remember I'm used to the truck coping with the 37's I run. I have 3.92 gears but she was still a bit of a dog though. BUT as I jetted down the street I could very, very quickly feel a HUGE difference. I'll lay out a few butt dyno observations -

* Much more positive shifts
* Improved throttle response
* I actually get thrown back in the seat now when I launch it
* I was continually catching myself speeding because my ear needed time to calibrate to the new 'tone' of 30 mph & 60 mph. On the hwy I was always heading to 75 mph for some reason. Felt right
* I need high performance brakes now .. haha
* I LOVE that my truck feels 'back'. What a pleasure to drive again.
* HWY RPM's @ 60 MPH of 1500.
* MPG ~ 20 HWY. A solid 3 MPG better than PRE-T1000.

Best money I've spent in a long time

Just wanted to share. This isn't coming from a gear head. I'm just Joe average...

Var, an absolute pleasure and thanks for the plug in

Now empty your tank and try 91 or 93 octane fuel and switch to that tune. I'm sure you'll notice a difference

I'll be sure to report back when I try the 91 & 93.

Now, anybody want to buy 50 litres of regular gas .. cheap!?

this is a very good thread.. I have been considering buying one of these for a while now, but I'm skeptical... I really dont wanna void the warranty, but then again, i know that getting this can improve mpg's while improving everything else at the same time. I feel like the $500 investment here would pay for itself in a year just in gas savings (providing i was able to control the urge to gun it too often)

As I said, thanks for the great review. Not technical, just straight up.

There's a thread located here which talks about the issues surrounding warranties here: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=163957

Just from my own personal experince, I haven't had any issues whatsoever with my dealer as long as you RE-FLASH TO STOCK before taking your truck in for any service.

In the summer I do about 120km round trip daily, that tuner paid for itself big time real fast. Even after I got my tires, I was getting better mpg then I was originally stock.

Now all you need is a HemiFever tune to triple that feeling.

I would not get a Diablo tuner without a HF tune. Its that good.

+1 on this, I was running the 93 tune for over a month and wasn't as impressed as I wanted to be. The HF tune took care of that.
