Only bad things about intune is the inability to check for knock or AFRs.

Intune and Trinity basically have the same tunes. If a tuner writes tunes for one they can write tunes for the other.
If you think about it trinity is still a good buy. The only thing that our track app is good for as far as obd 2 data is the IAT and AFR. It still doesn't display fuel trims, timing advance, commanded AFR, KR, etc.. Sure you can get some of these data from intune but trinity is like having 2 aeroforce gauge with the ability to tune. In this case, the value of trinity all of a sudden looks pretty good.

Or you could just buy a $15 Bluetooth OBDII adapter and use the Torque app on your phone or Tablet.

FYI Diablo Dan said they are working on getting a Wideband PID working on the Intune. I guess it works on the Trinity, so it shouldn't be too long.

UPDATE:

I went ahead and removed the ORH pipe's from my car. The ORH pipes are just too much for me. I live in a quiet neighborhood and on a cold morning start it's just too loud for my taste. FYI they will be for sale later today in the classifieds if anyone is interested. I'll cut a deal. I just need them out of my garage at this point.

I'm installing the Diablo "93 Octane Airaid Performance" tune to try that out later. Had some problems with Bama and to be honest, now that I don't run a ORH pipe I don't really need their custom tunes. I'll post back later my thoughts on the Diablo tune. It's the most aggressive/highest performing tune the unit offers. Website says 25HP/27TQ.

I was told by Dan and Brian, the Ford tuner, that they are working on it. You'll use Data Viewer to veiw the inTune datalogs.

The only problem with the torque app is that no one so far is able to monitor KR. Other than that, torque app is awesome.

Ran the Diablo "93 Airaid Performance" tune today. I adjusted the rev limiter to 7300 because that's all I need to get through the 1/4 mile if I ever make it back to the strip. Anyway, I like it. The car runs great, idles well, NO pinging anywhere in the RPM band. Nothing bad to say about the tune! The only thing I wish it did was get rid of the skip shift. I hate skip shift. I might just have to search AFM and find out how to unplug it that way it's just gone no matter what. I put about 40 miles on the car today with this setup and I like it! The Airaid intake let's a nice growl out from under the hood too. It's funny because it's not exhaust noise, it's engine noise and it sounds soooooo good. I'm completely satisfied thus far with the stock exhaust and the Intune/Airaid combo.

Good job Diablo! For a "canned tuner" this thing works well. Now just disable the skip-shift on 2011-2012 Mustang GT's and the Intune will be about perfect

So how would you compare this tune vs SCT tune you had?

You have a manual right? Do you notice any more drive train slop such as thumping or clunk when getting on or off the gas in 6th gear during highway cruise?

A tune doesn't change "drive train slop" but sometimes a poorly written tune, aggressive TPS setting, or simply if the car had drive train slop to begin with can make excessive slop come alive. I have a 2013 manual GT. Drive train slop didn't come to mind until I installed procal. Took the procal back off and she is as smooth as she always been.

Thanks for the link. I'm going to un-plug the skip shift this weekend. Looks like I can get to it by using the ramps.

I'm satisfied. I already found a local buyer for the ORH pipe and of course my car is running strong. No complaints.

I don't notice anymore back-lash or clunk from the drive train, although that's not saying much as these cars have quite a bit from the factory. The throttle response is much improved, but not to the point where it's jerking things around. It's a good compromise.
