    Default Diablo Predator Tuner and 5.3L

    Before I pull the trigger - based on some research I did it looks like this is the most versitile route to go for tweaking as well as codes. Is it worth the $400+? (tuner and the computer interface kit)

    well depending on MPG gain it could pay for itself in a little bit. I called my local performance shop and they recommend the edge ct or something like that. They say 40+ HP and 2-3 mpg. Plus it mounts on the dash and has different gauges it can display and stuff.

    Can you link me to what your talking about? I just went to their site and the tuner is $369 with another $40 for the USB computer interface. That makes about $410.

    (yes, the 7193 is also for gto's and other trucks - it is the correct one for your 2003 truck)

    here's the 7193 info from diablo's site:

    Those are just scan tools, if you are looking for a tuning software, EFILive or HPTuners is what you need.
