1. Tom L. at
2. Diablosport Predator
3. Less than $400
4. 2 days
5. My car is stock except for this tune. Install was easy(10 min or less) once I contacted Tom to get the basic steps cleared up. The instructions from the manufacturer(Diablosport) are HORRIBLE. Tom was quick to reply to emails and offered his cell# which I did not need after he sent a simple, one line email outlining the procedure. Tune impressions: throatier exhaust note noticed first time engine started. Revs still hang a bit between shifts but then drop much more quickly than stock. Throttle response is much more aggressive, especially at low rpm. Useable power starts below 2k revs. I can cruise in 6th at 1500 and not lug the engine. No more part throttle cruise surging, power curve feels like it lost some of the peaks and valleys. No more DSI dip and rise around 4k-5k.
6. Shipping was quick enough. See above item for other "Tuner" comments.
7. Dyno links? Who cares...I use the "butt dyno" It served me well so far lol
