Tom,
I still haven't been able to test the TC defeat.
I can't seem to find the program you were talking about that I need to load to the PC,
in order to load the new tune to the Predator.

This is what I need, isn't it?
Predator PC Interface (Xmodem) software on your PC

All I find on their site is this:
http://diablosport.com/Downloads_U71...downloadupdate
Clicking on download does nothing.

WD40, pm me your email and I'll send it to you as e-mail. There are two programs you need Ford Predator PC interface and the CMR Dat viewer. I looked and looked and could not find a link to the two programs on Diablo's site so they must have moved them or some thing. Any ways there small programs and as long as you have broad brand it would only take a min tops for me to e-mail them to you so drop me a line and I'll get it out to you.

Easiest was to test the T/C defeat is disable is rev it up to about 4500 rpm's and just pop the clutch (not completly litarly but you get the idea) if its disabled you can spin em real good. I about sh!t my self when a little smoke started to rise (thank god it was my old set of tires). If the T/C is not completly disabled it'll bog down like hell.

before someone says it, i know this thread is frikkin ancient. but my question can prove useful to everyone who reads it.

While running DSDownloader in advanced mode. It gives you the option to add more than just one tune on the list. will it send all the tunes to the Predator?

DSDownloader is used for all Predators not only for SVT Focus version, so I think some of those Predators can hold more then one tune as they can also modify tunes uploaded into them what our Predator can't do....

You MUST complete this step, otherwise any file that you send to me will NOT be readable.

Why do you need to read and keep the current tune ?

Tom, so i bought a predator with your custom SVT tune on it. Does that mean that basically all i have to do is upload it like normal, go to performance tune and hit continue or do i go to options custom tune and then say export tune. Basically, is your tune the only tune on the device or is there the original tune and your tune on it?

If you didnt buy it from me and it has been used before then I doubt at the top it says custom tune , More then likely it says Performance tune and that is the basic Diablo tune not mine

If you use my tune from a used predator you take a 80% chance of locking either the ECU and or the Predator and there is no warranty on either
