Default Smurf's Peter

Lol, I still crack up overtime I post that title. Hehehe

Anyway, I'm looking for valuable opinions and suggestions. Here is a list of stuff I wanna get for my pt and the prices ive found.

Lowering springs-$175.00
KY gr-2s- $170.00 (all 4 corners)
diablo sport trinity -$599.00
Apexi turbo timer $17.96
Catch can-$15.98
BWoody motor mounts- $112.95

Total comes to $1,090.89

Is this a good way to spent a crap load of money or just waste it? I wanna know why the bad and how good is the good.
Thanks guys

You don't really need the Trinity. You can save money by getting the Intune or a used (unmarried) Predator (which I have and love). As for mounts you can save alot of money and buy inserts. I think they are around $40. Catch cans I've seen on Ebay. Check out Modern Performance You might want to look into a good set of plugs and wires too. Don't bother with changing out the coil there really isn't a need to. Good luck.

Uhhhh ok whatever, anyway

I have a trinity, I think nitro does as well.

It gives the same tune but you have real time engine diagnostics right in front of you, no need to get gauges, it is also adaptable to use it as a afr.

The predator is just the tune, you download it and throw it in a drawer, the trinity you don't.

Just my 2 cents

Lenny,
I know bout the predator and then the intune I just want the gauge monitor to see if its any different than the ultra gauge. If its better sell the ultra gauge, if worse then sell the Trinity. I DO like the fact it has dataloging capabilities, and can definitely tell me whee I stand from baseline, to mods. Plus it comes highly recommended from a friend who knows his shit. Names won't be said to protect the innocent and save the guilty. Lol

The inserts, I'm still contemplating but don't like the thought of something else pushing

around the factory mounts. Was gonna replace if need be anyway.

The plugs and plug wires is a good suggestion as I forgot I was gonna do those. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the info and reply.

Busa,
This being another reason for the Trinity over predator or intune. Thanks for your input

It's just ashame he is wrong. It logs everything that the Trinity does. you just have to install the software. Knowledge is power. Shouldn't knock what we don't fully understand. If I had the money I might look into a Trinity but imo I'd like to put the money into something else.

I have the Predator hooked up to a lap top When I go to the track and I can see realtime data. It is a bit akward but I'm a cheapo.

the SRT guys have been using the Predator since it came out. If you check out the srtforums see what they have to say about it. I am by no means putting down the Trinity. If you have the money go for it.

Of course they did, it was the first made


The predator is like a yugo, yeah it will do the basics, the trinity is like a Bugatt, everything you want if you can afford it
