2010 Chevrolet Silverado - Diablo Predator
I just received my Diablo Sport Predator module in the mail yesterday but have yet to hook it up.
Just curious what my expectations are as far as overall power/torque, fuel economy and making it run smoother, i.e. removing the slight hesitation when taking off from a stop light when warm.
Any input would be much appreciated.
Thank you2010 Chevrolet Silverado Z-71 Crew Cab with appearance package.

Most of the handheld tuners out there publish "up to" so many HP and torque gains. The truth is you might fee a slight difference, but that's it.

First off, I opted for the Trinity tuner with custom tune. With that in mind, I went with firmer transmission shift points (very noticeable!), and I did notice better acceleration in the mid RPM range (when accelerating at WOT). So far as MPG IF, and I do mean IF, I can keep my foot off the gas, my average is around 16 mpg. May not seem like much, but you have to understand my daily commute has me take a hill that that gains me about 1000' daily. So overall, not bad with a custom tune (which I recommend if you can afford it!). Hope that helps, and if ya have any other questions, feel free to ask! I know there's a couple other tuning folks in the site somewheres hiding out!

While I do believe that custom or canned tunes can result in better HP and torque numbers, I don't believe that they result in better MPGs. Since truck makers are so MPG-centric, they are doing everything they can to squeeze every MPG they can out of every drop of gasoline.

So in my opinion, the Diablo Sport Predator tuner didn't work as I expected it to. So with that being said, I returned it. My hesitation is still there, and I didn't feel any power difference with it.
