Update:

I got my Hemifever 91 tune over the past week and a half since my initial tune and wow what a difference! The truck is more responsive, improved part throttle and wot shifts, it pulls harder and runs great. It is such a pleasure to drive now. I can't thank Sean enough, its awesome. He definitely knows his stuff and answered all my questions, even over the weekend. That's above and beyond service!

The only glitch appears to be 1-2 shift wont go over 5500rpm, even in manual mode it auto shifts. Sean set it at 5800 and I tried upping it to 6k to see if it would change and it didn't. It appears to be a Diablosport firmware bug from reading their forums, seems more than just Rams are having problems modifying shifts. I hope they get it worked out soon.

Anyone that has a Diablosport tuner I highly recommend getting a hemifever tune, its so damn good!

ps: I just received my JBA shorties today, looks like saturday its time to pull those cast iron boat anchors off!

I don't want to sound like an "*******" but I gotta say, thats a ton of money to get happiness out of the truck. Roughly $500+ for the programmer and I assume another $200+ for the tuning by Hemifever....so for $700ish bucks you get a tune. I can't justify that. But I'm glad its working for you.
On a second note, I really am curious how the headers will turn out in sound and all with the 24" muffler....

I'ts all good! I paid less than that and the custom tune was $125 from Sean. I had an 04 Ram with a superchips in the past, my buddy has an 07 with sc, and I knew how much tuners improve these trucks, its night and day vs stock. I can't stand the stock throttle response, overbearing torque management and slushy shifting myself. A tune really wakes these trucks up! Its awesome to me.

DS will eventually release for their cheaper Intune tuner later. Sean has pretty good bundles of tuner/tune on his site too as 0212353 mentioned.

Its kind of a personal thing, and everyones got their own budgets. People spend thousands on different things...looks, lifts, tires, lights, paint, performance, etc. I love unleashing the power myself. To each their own I suppose but if you havent driven a tuned ram, I highly suggest it! Might change your mind...

I too am curious how the new headers will sound with my setup. I had headers on my 04 but had a dumped flowmaster 40, which droned my brain out eventually so I went really conservative on this truck muffler wise. I'll try and throw up a comparison vid once its done. It smoothed out my sound on my 04, not a huge difference but definitely noticeable.

I suppose thats just me getting older. I used to want the loudest nastiest exhaust I could get...now I just like it to bark a bit but be quiet inside. Hehe

Yeah man I didn't want to sound rude...just rationalizing . I want everything you do, just cant see $600-700 for it lol. All I'm saying.

As for age, I'm in the same boat...I rather it sound deep and mean and yet quiet enough for a long drive if I want. The catback from Magnaflow gives me a nice sound, just want it deeper. So I'm curious how yours will turn out!

Got my custom tune through hemifever also....holy cow my truck is alive. The increase in power and mileage was very impressive and Sean is a hell of a guy to work with.

My only issues with the Trinity are that when updating the tire size, it says update failed but it does actually work. Entering 33.5" on tire height fixed my speedo for runnings 35s. I also have a problem getting the recording log to work but Diablosport has been working with me on that.

Overall, I'm very happy

these trucks cost roughly 20-40k depending on model and pkg.... paying an extra $600 to get it running its best, seems like a no brainer to me.
plus, your not going to get the full potential of mods like muffler, headers, cai, etc. until you have a tuner that custom tunes.
i'm loving my ds trinity, and can't wait to get a hemifever tune.

I only did it twice. First time was in 2wd and it was 7.5ish.....no traction what so ever. Second time was in 4wd and it was a 6.60. Keep in mind that is with 35s. Running street tires will knock A LOT off that
