hey ya'll just got a 2012 srt8 not too long ago. I have automatic and sport mode to choose from. I've got an Intune and have the diablo can tune (93 octane) loaded. I've only driven around a little bit so far since I flashed the PCM but the car seems decently faster with the can tune than the stock tune. it seems like the can tune is faster than sport mode now. so am I stuck with choosing from a more aggressive/better IMO engine tune (diablo can) with softer suspension and then sport mode less power/less aggressive tune but the stiffer suspension?

Agreed ^^. Theres every chance that the sport mode will still change your suspension as normal

that wasn't the question/concern. my automatic/normal mode DOES have the normal soft suspension and my sport mode DOES have the stiffer suspension. I was wondering about the engine tune. From driving around a bit more I think the diablo tune is there both in auto/normal mode and sport mode. I just thought someone on here might know for sure. i'll probably talk to someone at diablo

As both The Trinity and going in Sport mode both change how the gearbox behaves so not sure which system wins.

With the 91 tune, my regular shift-points are stiffened up and sport mode is downright shocking, so there is still a noticeable difference between the two with a tune.

My take on the way it works is that Sport mode offers a % gain on your shift firmness, which you can set on the Intune. The default 91 and 93 tunes are stiffer than stock.

So with the tune sport mode is like a double impact?

The intune/trinity does not change any transmission settings. The PCM changes are there in both modes (or all 3 depending on year)

Really? So they went backwards in the gen 2 and eliminated the advantage of reducing tq management and increased line pressure? Wonder why... I will have to ask Johan on our next chat...interesting.

reduced torque mgmt still there and raised shift points are there but debate is there if they work. The 2nd gens don't have everything available like the 1st gens and what is available doesn't always function. For instance, you can't program a different gear ratio successfully with a trinity. It shows it and says it did it, but not really done. I know that firsthand.
