So I got my Predator from Tom today. Pulled the right fuses, followed the instructions to a tee, and started up the car.

-RPM's did NOT stabilize to 900 like everyone seems to say
-Bogging off the line seems same as before
-No noticeable increase in power

I know Tom's the man, and everyone is really happy with his tune. Hopefully, this is an oversight on my part. Did I do something wrong? Do I need to reset the ECU? (Also, if I need to reset the ECU, what's the best way to do that?)

Is it possible that his tune wasn't properly loaded (or loaded at all) on the Predator?

-When I installed the tune, I followed all the instructions: Pulled the fuses, backed-up the factory/original tune, and loaded the only tune listed on the Predator - called "Custom Tune" - there was no other tune listed for installation. (I was under the impression that I could upload Tom's, or the Predator-preset tune.)

Any help would be great!!! Thanks in advance....

Take your Batt loose for about 5 or so then back on and see what happens , not all RPM gauges are exaclty right did the RPM go up any from your stock tune

^^Good point, your car should rev slightly higher with the new tune in it.

If Shiznnid unplugged to early, the car wouldn't have been able to start at all.

Bingo. That did it.

Whoa.....3rd and 4th gear roll-on acceleration is vastly improved. And you can really hear that sweet popping on the downshift! Still bogging off the line - no better than before. My full review to be posted later, once I get a feel for the changes.....
