Question Diablo tune question...

I currently have the standard diablo (cookie cutter) tune. I also have a steeda intake. Now this combo has amazed me with the power my car has now. I was looking into Tom's tune but I have a few questions, When does the intake runners change? The diablo's is around 5800. Is Tom's worth the extra $150.? And would I feel the difference? Please help me and feel free to add the pros of tom's tune and urge me to buy it.
Thanks

I have Tom's tune at the moment but for some reason my intake manifold is stuck at bank 1 and would not change over to the short runners. I am trying to get the mapping resolved currently. Some would speculate that the intake manifold is busted but I say this happen right after Tom's tune was uploaded into my car. It was changing perfectly changing over at 6000rpm with the factory tune.

Here's my .002
I have Tom's tune and the car feels as if the DSI kicks in at 3k rpm. Then when it reaches 5200 rpm I can feel (very slightly) the factory setting kick in. Tom's tune is a different setup compared to the standard Diablo. Whether or not you want or need to spend the extra money for Tom's tune is really up to you. Good Luck

Tom I will be in touch with you in the next couple of days to order your tune, I just gotta learn how to actually d'load it from my computer. One question, I have the "stock" diablo tune in my car now, in order to install your tune dod I need to flash my car back top stock then install yours or can I write on top of the one in there now?

So let me get this straight. I need to send you my diablo tune that I have in my car now? Or is that just if I was having a running issue with a tune I already have from you?
Thanks for your help Tom
