Not at all, I had it since early December and I love it...Stupidly I made the mistake of setting my car back to stock (I was replacing O2 sensors and I thought I need to set the car back to stock) and I ended up loosing the tune (I didn't know at the time that would happen). So I loaded Diablo's tune and it sucked so I set it back to stock, finally I was able to get a copy from Tom again and I don't have enough words to describe the difference...Are you still undecided whether to get one or not?

i feel the same way everyone loves toms tune. but unsure if to get it. reading thru alot of threads there seems to be no downfall. i pm tom for how to get it so im just waiting for reply. my only dilema is this i could feel the little problems that common svt have but its liveable. is it worth $400 dollars to smooth those out. hmmm with as i understand from what i read not much in hp difference. would like to know what hp might see.

not trying to put doubts in the minds of others but these questions may help others who like me need that little nudge to get toms tune

You should be able to tell on your predator. If you go to check last tune installed, it should say custom tune, if it says performance tune then you are running Diablos tune and it sucks might as well set it back to stock...You can tell you have Tom's tune because the car has huevos (cojones) from the get go...If that's the case then you'll be able to see the difference one you get Tom's tune back....
