1. Diablo predator performance tune
2. Diablo predator ( duh )
3. Less than $300
4. 1 week
5. Very easy to install - about 10 mins. First impressions / so far - no surging - much smoother revving - more power after 3000 rpm
6. He was a butthead. He lived in a box and wouldn't come out to say hi or anything.
7. No dynos, just diablos claim of 15fwhp - not sure if they are saying front wheel or fly wheel - prolly flywheel.

Overall, at first I was scared to fry my ecu. But I like the stock program being saved - I had a ranger 4.0 with a custom chip and was always bummed that I would have to remove the ecu, take off the chip , try to explain the wires going to the passenger compartment, etc. if I had to go to the dealer. With this thing, I just hook 'er up - reflash to stock - and that's it!

Deleted repeated thread questions at start of answers.

JUST GOT TOM'S TUNE TODAY. Main difference after 1 test run is that my low end power is much better. No more waiting to get up from 2k to 4k almost instantaneous.
