Diablo Predator Question
Just got my Diablo programmer in today. I'm planning on hooking it up tomorrow and testing it out. However, reading the little booklet that came with it it says that it recommends to pull a few fuses before pulging it in. I don't remember what they all were, radio was one I believe. Is this really necessary? Sounds like a hassle more than anything, but I mean if it could actually mess some thing up then I'll pull em out. What are some of the opinions of the Diablo users out there?MY LUG NUTS REQUIRE MORE TORQUE THAN YOUR RICER MAKES! :sign0011:

There's a good reason why you are instructed to remove fuses. The programmer is not smart enough to deal with those circuits. Leaving the fuses in will cause false codes to set during programming. Do yourself a favor and follow the instructions. The first question the Diablo help line will ask you is which fuses did you remove.Jim

Understandable. After reading your reply i went straight out and installed the 87 octane tune since I just got a full tank yesterday of 87 octane. I'll see how it does throughout the day and stuff. Next fill up I'll try out the performance tune. Looking forward to using it!

Well so far today I've drove about 50 to 60 miles and reset the Average Economy reading on my truck (before I started it and was still in the drive way). I was getting about 12.1 MPG city and right now I'm at 13.3 MPG city. We will see over the next few days if that continues to rise or lower however.
The improvement in shifting firmness was very nice! The truck definitely has some more get up and go when I lay into it, even at high speeds. And I noticed right away the changed infamous 1-2 shift that everyone talks about. Definitely much nicer and useful shift now lol.
I will keep yall posted as the week progresses. Tomorrow I will be leaving for a 110 mile highway trip so I will have to let yall know the results from that when I get back on Friday.
