    not sure what motor/tranny you have in that truck since it's not mentioned anywhere, but if you have a 6 speed tranny (non-allison), diablo just released a tcm/tranny support update for the Trinity that will allow you to make some tcm/tranny adjustments... they are working on the tcm/tranny update for the 4-speed trannies next...

    have you done any data logging to see where your fueling is at and make adjustments to get it reigned in??

    and you could also get a custom tune done for your truck/trinity that will gain you more hp/tq, even better/quicker throttle response and acceleration, stronger/harder pull, etc. and usually even a little better mileage once things get dialed in....

    its a 5.3 flex fuel truck with the 6 speed. i got my chip in march has it been updated since and if so do i need to return the truck to stock then update the trinity. on my other truck its just a 4.8 but im runnnin a hypertec and ive never really had to mess with any of teh settins but on my white truck i wanna see what i can get out of it before i ad the cam and whipple. kooks headers and y pipe is next to the list that goin on cause that still just makes the truck a bolt on only.

    Get a custom tune from for your Trinity via e-mail. I think Lew charges $125 for a custom tune.

    The TB Spacer does nothing. Throw on some long-tube headers and get a custom tune from 06MonteSS; it will awaken your truck.

    few of my buddies get a place called blue cat to do a custom dyno tune. i thought about that there bad to the bone, but i was gona do that after the whipple, cam, and headers. i just want it all bolt on so i know what it runs then go all out. i gotta do a stall, shift kit, and re gear it too when i do the whipple
