I like the speed of the predator (and I like the Diablo software quite a bit) but I prefer to datalog with the SCT Xcal... it does a better job than the Predator.

On the other hand you can use the predator without a laptop (it has a nice read out on the screen.

They both are good setups.... but if you plan on datalogging I would go with the SCT.

I went with the predator a few months back and sometimes it is the biggest pain in the ass to upload the log to the laptop. I dont know if its because i have vista or what. There are some other issues i have with the predator but overall i like it alot. I love the readout on the "big" screen it has. Its very easy to use but if i could do it over again i would prolly go with the xcal. People just seem to have less issues with the xcal.

Sorry but what is datalogging exactly is tgat I have a idea but I want to be sure

Datalogging is where you hook up the flasher to a laptop and record the engine data.

Ok but can the Predato. Still do that I'm looking to buy the Predator off of Tom like tomorrow.

Yes you can do it on the predator, and if your not going FI i would go with the predator.

The Predator can datalog as well... but I think the Xcal does a better job of it.
