Tuning help Please!

What i got- 2010 camaro 1ss/rs, auto A6 transmission, K&N CAI, OBX longtube headers w/ high flow cats, full Flowmaster cat-back exhaust,and my newest toy the Diablosport Trinity.

as you can tell by the title i need help with tuning obviously with the trinity. i don't know if anyone has any experience with tuning with the trinity or if any advise could help from other tuners.

basically im not wanting a hand out, nor do i want a stupid link to some website selling mail order tunes. i have done my research and in the recent purchase of the trinity, im in no hurry to buy one of these mail order tunes. also i've herd theres no mods you could add to these tunes you buy.

all in all i gave you my information on what i got and what i want and thats just a little steer in the right direction on tuning my car to make it a little more than just an average daily driver. any help would do to tranny tuning to the engine tuning.

P.S. and if anyone doesn't want to broadcast their secrets then pm me if you prefer thank you and have a happy 4th, i know my brothers in arms would much appreciate any sort of support, like wise

you are going to need a custom tune, because of the long tube headers and high flow cats... you can not disable the necessary trouble codes for those mods... it can only be done in a custom tune... and the amount of fueling adjustment that is probably going to be necessary for your mods, should really be done in a custom tune as well, so that the MAF table can be adjusted correctly, instead of you adjusting the fuel injector slope via the tool - which going any more than -5% or -6% on the slope adjustment would dog that car...

as for data logging, what parameters you need to data log, etc - you can find a write-up on diablo's forums that I did... you don't want to take someone elses adjustments that they made, and apply them to YOUR car... every vehicle is different... even if they're the same and have similar mods... location/weather, fuel used, elevation/altitude, etc etc all play a role... just because a certain fueling/timing adjustment works well for someone else, doesn't mean it will for your car - it could make you too lean or too rich, could be too much timing and cause even more knock retard, etc... the only way to know what YOUR car needs, is to do data logging, and then make your own adjustments....

and I won't post a link to my site/info about custom tuning for diablosport since you requested not to post links about it, but when you're ready for the custom tune, let me know...

and what do you mean there are no mods you can add with a custom tune???? are you talking about if you add new mods to your car? hell, if your car is bone stock, and you were to have me do a custom tune for it, and then 2, 4, 8 months down the road you add a CAI, or exhaust, or headers, etc to the car, I offer 1 year of free tune updates... so I'm not sure what you're talking about there... but yes, every person/shop is different, and may not do that... if your statement was about being able to change/modify the custom tune after you've had it done - yes, you can still modify the custom tune yourself using the Trinity, just like any other tune... but I'm not totally sure what you mean by that statement you made... maybe need to do more research to get all the correct info??

thanks for the info and offers but i think my best bet right now is to sell the tuner to get my money back or something and just wait till i get back from my upcoming deployment and then put in a supercharger heads and a cam with a dyno tune or something
