    hello I have a 2016 RT. Someone is selling a pcm for cheap...if I buy it, can I have my friend tune it with his trinity? Would that work? Or does it have to be unlocked or registered to my VIN?

    There may be cheaper ways to go, but a sponsor here on the site (Hemifever) can sell you everything you need... Unless your friends Trinity is able to tune more than one car or is unmarried.. no... I am not aware of any tuners that once written to a car can then tune another car... but if I am wrong I am sure someone here will set me straight...lol....

    Hemifever - BTW is awesome to work with, he also has an stellar reputation...

    To my knowledge you will need the PCM to be reprogrammed to your VIN # for your car, or else it will still think it's in your buddy's car. I don't think that will work. You can ship the PCM off to Diablosport and they will reprogram it for you for $100.

    That's exactly what I did. Bought the Trinity and PCM off of a forum member, sent the PCM off to Diablosport, got it reprogrammed, installed it in the computer, then got a custom tune separately from Hemifever, loaded that on, and away I went. No problems at all. Saved about $300 or so too over buying all new stuff.

    But if you dont' want to go that route, you can get everything you need from Hemifever Tuning. But nothing wrong with going with used stuff, works just as good. Then you'll be able to buy one drag radial with the savings haha!

    The Diablosport i2 will tune 2 vehicles (they don't even have to be the same make) by purchasing a second vehicle license for I believe $99.00.
