    I'm trying to figure out what tuner to buy.

    My engine is srt8 392 hemi - 2011. I plan to start taking it to a track next summer.

    No mods yet, but i plan on installing a cai and some kind of performance exhaust, at least. I doubt I'll ever be able to afford a supercharger, but you never know.

    I was thinking of getting a trinity t2 9345. They go for $600 USD right now, but they started making these long after my car... should I just go with an intune instead? Or is the t2 worth the extra cost? Other options?

    From what I understand the difference between them is you get gauges on the screen of the tuner. I had no plans of mounting that tuner anywhere to watch the gauges on it so I got inTune i2 ('13 SXT). It installed Tunes to the vehilce, I got a custom tune emailed to me (from a custom Tuner) it downloaded it and stored/installed it and that's all I needed it to do. You can get a hold of DS just to make sure whatever model Tuner you're buying is compatible with your vehicle. At least this was my experience ...

    Sometimes Haste makes Wastes. A lot of times you can hunt around and find Custom Tuners that sell DS tuners just for a few dollars more, or just Retail, but they'll also include a custom tune and adjustments to That Tune included in the price. Couple years ago I also kind of jumped the gun got a tuner and then later found out I could have bought the same Tuner and got a free custom tune from Will, in Canada, but by that time it was a little late and I had to pay for my Custom Tune. Well ... Have Fun Tunin'!
