Custom tune question

Just got my Predator from Tom (thanks Tom). On the first screen once I plug the Predator in, there are 3 options, the first of which is "Custom Tune". This is the tune I loaded and it's a huge improvement over the stocker. Just wanted to be sure that this is Tom's tune, and not the Diablosport tune, right? Or do I have to do some weird stuff in the menus to get to Tom's tune to load it?

Very much so far:

-bog on launch and shifts? gone
-pull? feels like it's pulling now, instead of clawing
-sound? deeper, meaner.
-air conditioning? can launch from a stop with moderate throttle instead of practically having to dump the clutch
-didn't feel ANY surging

Just what I wanted

the stock svt springs will lower your car around .75' not 1.8". and you should never cut springs. if you want a two inch drop check out h&r or eibach.
