Noah: Hey, everybody, Noah here with AmericanTrucks. This is the Diablosport Trinity 2 EX Platinum Tuner for the '99 to 2016 5.3-liter Silverado 1500. Now, if you want to tune your truck and you're looking to switch between two different tune maps on a large touch screen and you want the possibility of loading custom tunes as well, then you should check out the Diablosport Trinity 2 EX Platinum Tuner. This tuner comes with the option to switch between different tunes and this is the platinum version, so it supports custom tunes as well and you can still use the two preloaded tunes that it comes with. Now, this does have a digital dash on here as well, so there's a few gauges that can be run on the screen displaying running data. Now, just to run through a quick list of things this tuner can adjust, we're looking at speedometer, gear ratio, tire size correction, cooling fan control, throttle response, fueling adjustments, timing adjustments, idle RPM, speed and rev limiters, and the ability to turn off active fuel management. Now, like I said before too, you can keep changing the tune to correspond with the mods you do as you build your truck as well with the support of that custom tuning.Now, another fantastic feature is that it can be used as a diagnostic tool for trouble codes and a data logger and monitor so you can see exactly what's going on in your truck. Now, loading tunes is super easy as well since you can do it over your computer with an included USB, with a PC or a Mac. Then once you have your tunes loaded, you can just plug the tuner in with the included OBD2 cable and switch between them. Then finally, one huge feature that this thing has is that it can actually time 0 to 60, 0 to 100, quarter mile, and eighth-mile times. It's always awesome to see those times conveniently right on the dash and having that data logged is great information to look at when creating or tweaking custom tunes.We have some pretty cool design features with the tuner itself. Now, like I said earlier, this tuner is compatible with Mac or PC over that USB cable which makes adding and deleting files super simple. Then we have this 5-inch, full-color, high-resolution touchscreen display right on the front which is a nice interface for you to sort through sensor data like AFR, or EGT, or anything else you want to see like those data logs. This tuner is also designed to work with Diablosport's CMR software where you can create your own tunes at home and upload them right onto the interface and flash them to your truck.Coming in around $750, it's kind of astonishing how much you get for the price here with the Diablosport's setup. This is definitely a higher-end sort of top-tier tuner with that digital dash capability but it's still what I would consider a lower-budget, very affordable setup for the price. This is a great option for someone who's on a budget but wants to get some more power out of their truck with a high-end, more inclusive tune setup that has some serious versatility.Installing this tuner will take you about 15 minutes which isn't too bad at all. If you take your time, this should have a difficulty level of one out of three wrenches without any major headaches. Sometimes getting tuners set up can be complicated and it's important to take your time and read all the literature that comes with it before just plugging it in. For some more in-depth installation instructions, check out this video of one of our AT customers talking you through the process step by step.Man: I use a pair of needle-nose pliers, pair of wire cutters. We have the Diablosport Trinity. And...put that on the windshield. Right, and then I'm gonna...pop this off. There's some clips. Just slide it out. Right? We're gonna take the board plugs up. So we're gonna go ahead and plug it up. Okay, and then I'm gonna take this and I'm gonna run it all the way up through there until you see some light. It's gonna come out, come out right here. Take your hand and grab it, pull it up. All right, and this is where we're gonna go through the side of the windshield. Okay. This is where you use your needle nose. You reach in. Okay, so that's all you're gonna need your needle-nose pliers for. Okay, so this is up. Now, we'll take our... Well, first, we'll plug it back up. Plug it up. All right, it's on the dash. Now we take our excess and we'll pull it up. Just like that to get it out of the way. We take our zip ties that came in the box. We want to take this and... We're gonna take our cutters. Okay, we're gonna take this, have it right there. Okay. We'll take our piece, slide it back in. We pop the belt back on there. And we'll take this and we'll zip tie the rest of it. Right here. So it'll be out of our way. Take our cutters. Take the excess off that. We'll crank the truck. Tap it. It comes on. And that's it. That's the install. Go from here. You go to Tunes. Go to Different Tunes. Of course, I've got the miles-per-gallon Booster Tune so I can get better gas mileage. And that's all.Noah: That was the Diablosport Trinity 2 EX Platinum Tuner for the '99 to 2016 5.3-liter Silverado 1500. For all things Silverado, keep it right here at americantrucks.com.
