If you read any tune review for the Predator, inTune or Trinity you will be reading the review for all, the tuning is exactly the same (just formatting differences for each device). If you want a towing tune you can have Lew build you a custom tune just for towing and then you can swap back and forth, but from what I have read there shouldn't be any problem towing with any tune, canned or custom.

There isn't a canned tune specifically for towing. They recommend the Diablo Tune which is a 93 octane maximum HP/Torque tune. The cool thing is now you can alter shift points and firmness with the Trinity, at least on the NNBS models. Not sure on yours. I might add that given the choice of the two, I'd buy the InTune now over the Trinity and save yourself some bucks assuming you have an iPhone or iPod.

Pretty sure it's just a typo, the Trinity has had TCM support for a while and the inTune just got it a week or so ago. I do agree unless you're going to use the Trinity to its full potential the inTune is the best product (now that it has TCM support) for the set and forget it type people like I am. I just want to tune, log, update and put it in its drawer.

The Intune an trinity are very similar. The trinity comes with a mount so it is easier to see what's happening while data logging and such, and the Intune costs a but less than the trinity.

Either if these tuners will adjust the settings you are thinking of. They both come with the same canned tunes and you can modify different parameters of the tune to your preference. Also with either one you could have a custom tune created specifically for your truck. Lew (06montess) is a vendor for diablo and does custom tunes.

The inTune is pretty much a tuning and logging device. The only way you can see your parameters is while you have a log running, not a big deal, just delete it at the end instead of saving it (which take a while, especially if you run a long log). The Trinity has all the toys, drag strip, zero to 60, live PID's (gauges with out having to run a log), etc. etc. If you really want to know the in's and out's of the two tunes I would recommend checking out Diablosports website.....

I looked hard at the Trinity but one I used the android Torque app with a Bluetooth OBDII interface it was cheaper to do the intune. You can have a ton of real time gauges and log with Torque.

what does having an iphone or ipod have to do with it??? heh...

the inTune is it's own handheld product, not a software app... the inTune looks exactly like it shows on the inTune product page... that's not an iphone/ipod, that is the actual inTune tool itself, hehe... it's the size of a credit card...

and the Trinity has tcm/tranny support for his truck, has for years... the Trinity supports 1999-2012 vehicles, both engine (ecm) and tranny (tcm) support...
