my opinion, wait a little longer for DS to get this figured out.
I got my Trinity last week. First I was disappointed that I had to go hunting for a Windoze system to install the software and then to update the device. Right now it has the 1r09f version. I have heard that this version/update has the problems fixed. I still have not plugged it into my car though. I thought best i do it during business hours. Only problem is that during business hours, I have my own work to do!

I updated mine to the f version but I still have not plugged it back into the car. Most said that the canned tune was not really a noticeable difference over the stock tune. I have a cat back and intake, once I get long tube headers and mid pipes im just gonna get the car tuned.

I bit the bullet today and plugged in the Trinity to my 2012 Charger R/T. First message that popped up was that an update is required. I was puzzled since i had updated Trinity only last week. Anyway, went back to the website and sure enough there was an update for Chrysler/Dodge vehicles. Good that i did not plug it in earlier, since the update came out yesterday only.

Long story short, managed to install the 93 perf tune. Ignored the warnings about low voltage with my heart in my throat. Finally managed to install the tune after numerous starts and stops. Didnt have the heart to modify it further for shift firmness.

Anyway, maybe the difference was in my head only but the car did feel a lot more responsive after the tune and low end torque was also better. Made it more peppy. Since you already have cat back and intake, maybe the difference for you will not be noticeable at all.

Now waiting for the warm weather on the weekend so that i can install the Frankentake too.

Update: Today morning I tried to modify the Shift Firmness but it wont do it. I got the dreaded "PCM Error Unlock for Reflash (-18)" message. Thankfully the car still runs. I will have to call DiabloSupport to get this sorted. I dont think i will be able to go back to stock tune (if i wanted to) until this unlock thing is sorted out.

I was able to set the Shift Firmness by going into Quick Adjust instead of Modify Tune.

I dont think I'm even gonna use a trinity on my car. I was talking to one of the techs at a local dealer, their working on pretuned pcms with their upcoming supercharger kits. plug n play with no tuning like the old neon srt4 stage kits. **** these hand held tuners, having to worry about knock on a canned tune and modifying parameters in a certain menu and certain order or you get errors is ridiculous. I wasted $600 on mine and got no use out of it, I will take a hit when I sell it.
I never got it to work in my 2012 srt8, 1out of 10 see a gain for the good. most see knock or have issues including myself, thats why the trinity will never see the inside of my car again . I got it to work in my 2008 srt8 but noticed nothing. anybody who says they see huge gains is hallucinating. I know I sound sour but for good reason. I bought an intune for the 2008 and it left my car sitting for a week, had to have the pcm replaced. I bought a trinity and it left my 2012 sitting for a week. waste of about a grand.
