No chip.
Focussport is expected to release the flasher in Oct. for around $300 I believe.

There technically is no chip for it but you can get either your pcm/ecu reflashed or order one off of one of the sites off line or go to a high performace shop and they will set you up (Jegs for example). The deal I hear is like $250 and they send you a reflashed ecu/pcm and then if you send them yours back (after putting the new one in) they send you a $50 check. The diablo flasher is also out which lets you flash a new program onto your chip but its like $450. I would wait untill the Diablo flasher has programing options on it to where you can change settings by hand instead of just flashing it and being stuck with what ever the flash is. I think the Diablo with the programing options will be out in a couple months but who knows they are not in a hurry.

Tom, I have heard two diffrent things. Will the Diablo flasher ever have programing options? I have heard yes and I have heard no, which one is it? If it will ever happen I would like to get the one with the programing options. Thanks.

what do you mean exactly by programming option? you'll be able to mess with octane settings etc... very minor flexibility. You can buy a flasher with say 3 prewritten programs that you can swap between too... does that answer your question? refering to SCT specifically

I was hoping for something like this http://www.super-chip.com/chips/inde...talog33_0.html on the page where the link takes you it lists these options with this flasher

Diablosport Predator allows the end user to make the following fine tuning adjustments:
Timing Table (+/- 10%)
Fuel Table (+/- 15%)
Idle (+/- 20%)
On/Off switch for Traction Control/Rear 02 Sensors (Off-road Exh)
Speed Limiter
Rev Limiter
Part and Full Throttle Shift Points
Shift Timing
Shift Pressure
Re-Calibrate Speedometer for Gear and Tire Size Changes

For $400+ this is what I was hoping for but I could live with one with minor flexability and multiple programs. Are they going to charge you for each program that it comes with (extra per program) or are they just going to come out with muliple ones standard? Thanks for the info.
