Let's have an active thread tracking all the successes, tips, do's and don'ts for the Diablo Tuner and the NON-SRT-8s. There is already one for the SRT-8s in that section. I suggest the form below:

Vehicle year / make / model


Mods:

Conditions (temp, humidity, etc):


SAME DAY results - before and after the tune for MEASURABLE differences: 0-60 / 1/4 mile ET and trap speed / dyno results

Before Tune:

After Tune(s):


Suggested Tips, Do's and Don'ts:

My car was used for some of the beta testing.
Mods that I have are the AFE Stage 2, Flowmaster catback, 180 t-stat.
They did a "stock" (with just the above mods) run on the dyno and the car put down 300hp and around 335 torque.
After putting in one of the canned tunes, it made 315hp, and around 355 torque. I think that they also leaned out the A/F mix a little for the tuned dyno run. They also firmed up the shifts.
My car had just over 12,500 miles at the time of the run. I don't know what the air temp was, I wasn't there. I haven't tested it out at the track yet, but that will be soon.
Given that, I think with custom tuning it will get better.

BTW, the Predator put out 9hp and 10ft lbs of torque more than the Superchips 91 Octane tune on my car. :rockon:

nice information R/Tdrvr. 15HP&20TQ is a nice gain. What are your impressions on the transmission settings one vs. the other? Thanks.

The Predator settings without a doubt are better. The shifting from 1st to second is nice. It feels like getting pushed into the seat hard on the launch, then getting kicked in the back of the seat during the shift to 2nd, and then pushed back into the seat again. It wasn't like that with the SC (which was good). Its better through the other gears as well. Remember, this is on just a pre-programmed setting.

I believe every car will be different based on mods, miles on the car, etc.

I heard someone asked HHP and they said they were just being shipped from Diablo today. Maybe they misunderstood. Doesn't HHP have a tracking number that would tell them when they would receive it. Being that it's already 2:30 over there I dont' have much hopes of it going out today.
