    hey iv been lokking into getting a programmer for my 5.3 and so far iv liked the diablo the best and so does my buddy, and we both got Z71s with the 5.3s, mine is a 99 and his is a 02, so instead of buying two of them i was wonderin if we could buy one and both be able to use with no trouble?
    Also if anybody else has got one of these, is there any problems with it? is it worth the money? or any other things u might think i need to know bout it.

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP:rofl:

    I don't know about that one but the Hypertech I had "stored" the original tuning so it could be reloaded, if needed. If the Diablo does this, you probably can't do two trucks. Maybe someone with Diablo experience will chip in!

    Most programmers you can only use with one VIN at a time.

    There isnt a programmer on the market that will allow you to tune more than one vehicle at a time. I have the Bully Dog Try Before You Buy Tuner that I can load on 100 vehicles (Diesel only) but it "falls off" the truck after 100 miles and cant be done again.
    The Diablosport is decent. I just put one on my 08, but I'm not as impressed with it as I'd hoped.

    i have diablo and love it! i run 87 octane and have made changes to program,raise idle100 rpms,raised part throttle shift points,shift firmness,added timing from2,000to4,000rpm. you have to play with it. it took me awhile, but it is worth it. also changed for my gearing and 35in. tires. you can look at live data while having someone drives so you can adjust on it. my truck is 05 4x4 c/cab 5.3 with new banks coldair intake,vararam t/body vol. stack,t/bodyspacer,jba shot tube headers, magnaflow high flow cats(they make a differance) magnaflow catback, percisiongears4.10s,msd wires, skyjacker 6in lift,bfgs a/ts,warn9.5xt winch

    from what I've caught out of the programmers dwill is right, I have only seen them program one at a time. they go retarded when you try to program a 2nd truck. it asks you to reset the machine to orrig specs from prevous truck.
