What are you hoping to do with the tuner? A Diablo Sport Trinity, inTune or older Predator will come with some "canned" tunes that you can load. These will give a noticeable increase in street performance similar to having a Stage 1 PCM. And truthfully, a Stage 1 PCM is less expensive if that's all you want. This is plenty for someone like me that just likes to go fast down the road with my sweetie beside me soaking up the sun. I'm running a 15 psi custom performance PCM from Syked ECM Tuning.

However, past a few "gee-whiz" things, there's not much else the DS tuners are good for unless you pay someone with a CMR program to create custom tunes for you. Basically, they are just tune loading devices. To do tuning yourself, you will need something more powerful like an HP Tuner.

So if you will tell us what you hope to accomplish, we can likely give you more specific advice.

By itself, a DS tuner will not quite allow you to increase boost like that. The highest boost you will likely get from a DS tuner alone is from the included 93 Octane tune which has about the same boost as a Stage 1. Again, you would need to find a CMR tuning service to make you a custom tune to use with the DS tuner. The fuel tables and other parameters would need adjusting too for optimal use. And you may need a stronger wastegate spring, and 3 bar map and tip sensor if you ever plan to go much further.

If me, I'd look into an HP Tuner or I'd find a tuning service. Syked ECM Tuning can fix you up if he's not too busy.
