I've been reading a lot of post from folks saying how exciting the Diable Predator is in terms of increased performance. All of these reports (as far as I've seen) are based on "butt dynos"; my car seems to make more power, rev harder, goes faster, etc.....

I surfed through the Diablo website last night, and unless I missed it, I didn't see any true measures of the performance gain (i.e. track times under tightly controlled conditions, dyno charts, etc).

Has anyone like a car magazine or a performance shop really put the Diablo under a microscope and tried to measure the actual perfromance gains? If this info is out there, I'd sure like to see it because this might just be my next purchase....

I havent dyno'd but several folks on Lxforums have. I can tell you at 70 degrees I may have run 13.7 once....out of 150 runs. The other night with a poor DA i ran 13.70, 72,74,77 with corrected numbers of 13.54-13.58.

It certainly pull stronger from 2nd on...as noted also by track times from 330' to 1/4 mile traps.

I am waiting for some time slips from the track also. I think this tuner is only good for adjusting the fans to make your Chager run cooler.
The shifting is not even felt under anything but WOT and if you disable the ESP your cruise control will not work.
