OK I'll be the first... This (EX) one will just monitor... But it can be programmed later to be a full fledged T2 right... OK at what cost... One more question... I can monitor knock live in real time right... I've already got an Intune2 is why I'm asking... One more question... Does it have to be married also... Thanks.

No.. The EX is the one that does programming too, it has the preset canned tunes on it..

The MX is the one that only monitors/displays data. The MX does not tune.

Yeah, I think whoever added this forum section, meant to put MX in the forum title, not EX.. since the description of this section says it's for monitoring only tool.. so this forum title should be Trinity MX Monitor -- I have corrected it....

the MX can not be converted.. if you want to be able to tune, you need to purchase the EX version tool...

yes it can log/monitor knock retard, same as the i2...

for data logging/monitoring, it does not have to be married to the vehicle.. it just has to be a supported vehicle that you use it on.. it only becomes married once you install a tune to the vehicle.

I'm almost sure your write up on the DS site says its upgradeably to an EX via software... No?

I have no idea, I didn't do the write-up and haven't looked at the MX tool at all, since it can't do any tuning ;-) (and I don't work down in FL at diablo's office) I wasn't aware that it was able to be upgraded, first I heard of it.. so that being said, I have no idea how much it would cost.. that'd be something you'd want to ask tech support about.. support@diablosport.com

No, this is still not set in stone. The problem is the MX is a 50 state legal device.
As such, it can't be converted to a T2 Platinum as thats not 50 state legal, so it would have to be a standard T2, non platinum device, so we need to make sure we can do that and that we are clear with customers up front that if they upgrade, they wont be able to custom tune, etc.
No pricing has been set yet.

Yes, you can monitor knock in real time.

Thanks Mikel... Think I'll just go ahead and play it safe and upgrade to a full T2 as I've got some custom tunes on my intune2... Those can be converted right?
