sct2 or diablosport

Hello I'm just wondering what kind of gains are expected or you have seen for the sct 2 or diablosport predator? Or if there are any other flash tuners I should be looking at. Thanks

^^ditto^^

first off get toms tune...you get a custom tune w/ free updates for as long as you are NA for $375...and he has a lot of FF support to back that up! (i dont think you can even get a predator alone for $375...so you would be crazy not to get toms tune!

next, dont expect to load the tune and feal like you gained 30hp. Revs stack a lot quicker, i gain speed a lot faster, it definatly changes the drivability of the car, but i dont feal the torque or hp difference (i think i was like you, expecting to feal a huge difference in pull and what not) but it more of a fine tuning of the way your car performs...in my eyes anyways!

TOMS TUNE FTW!!!

I would like to know about this tune also, but you would not have to send ur pcm to him. The tune would come on the hand held and you would just plug it in to ur OBD2 port and pick up load custom tune and after that ur done. I know with my Cobra i had to give my tuner my PCM code will i have to do it with this car?
