I currently have the standard diablo (cookie cutter) tune. I also have a steeda intake. Now this combo has amazed me with the power my car has now. I was looking into Tom's tune but I have a few questions, When does the intake runners change? The diablo's is around 5800. Is Tom's worth the extra $150.? And would I feel the difference? Please help me and feel free to add the pros of tom's tune and urge me to buy it.

I have Tom's tune at the moment but for some reason my intake manifold is stuck at bank 1 and would not change over to the short runners. I am trying to get the mapping resolved currently. Some would speculate that the intake manifold is busted but I say this happen right after Tom's tune was uploaded into my car. It was changing perfectly changing over at 6000rpm with the factory tune.

Here's my .002
I have Tom's tune and the car feels as if the DSI kicks in at 3k rpm. Then when it reaches 5200 rpm I can feel (very slightly) the factory setting kick in. Tom's tune is a different setup compared to the standard Diablo. Whether or not you want or need to spend the extra money for Tom's tune is really up to you. Good Luck

Ill assure you , you are not feeling anything from the factory as for tuning , Its all gone with my tune in there
The Factory IMRC is at 5800 and depending on ECU code i set my IMRC to 4800 to 5100

Tom I will be in touch with you in the next couple of days to order your tune, I just gotta learn how to actually d'load it from my computer. One question, I have the "stock" diablo tune in my car now, in order to install your tune dod I need to flash my car back top stock then install yours or can I write on top of the one in there now?

Yes flash it back to stock then load the custom tune
In the focus-power furum there is directions on how to download then load the custom tune

So let me get this straight. I need to send you my diablo tune that I have in my car now? Or is that just if I was having a running issue with a tune I already have from you?
Thanks for your help Tom
