    Default Anyone use Diablosport Predator programmer?

    I have just installed a predator programmer and saw very little difference in performance. Has anyone else done this? It seemed to accellerate in the higher rpm's a little quicker but not $300 worth of gain. Did I do something wrong?

    Is your truck a gasser or diesel?

    Question DiabloSport Predator Experiences

    I am looking at my next investment being my first performance upgrade - a programmer. As of now, I am leaning toward the DiabloSport Predator. It seems like a good unit, and I like the fact that it can program my truck to run on E85 fuel (if Alberta ever gets an E85 station). I just want to see if anyone has any experience with the Predator or suggestions before I go shell out $400+ (Canadian) for this unit. Thanks.

    I know there are already threads about these things, but the more recent, the better.

    You really don't gain a whole lot from handhelds....unless you have a diesel. We are talking gains, for gas engines, of about 10 HP at max.

    10hp is better than nothing but if you spend too much it may be dissappointing

    Cool DiabloSport Predator Experiences

    As Ive posted before I love my Diablo because of all the fine tuning you can do yourself. You have to take the time to play with it but its fun. I gave cascott325 some tuning tips with his and he says hes happy with the mods. Ive tried the other programmers and even custom tunes but I like the Diablo best.

    The newer Diablo Predators are internet upgradable and hold up to 5 custom tunes. Shop around your local and mail order Diablo tuners for best price and tunes.

    I think im going to go with the diablo - but I'll wait until the contest is over (in case i win that programmer). And my budget is a bit tight. I turn 16 and will start actually driving in 2 weeks - gas and insurance. yay. and i just spent $140 on detailing supplies today. So, all in time.
