That would be awesome but I am not holding my breath. Hopefully it comes out soon, I hate the stock tune from the factory.

SRTs will be first to get a tune, then a bit longer for the 5.7

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

I'm passing along what I was told by mike at diablo regarding my question using 89 octane fuel.

"If you want to take advantage of the slightly higher 89 octane fuel, just run the 87 performance tune and add 2 degrees of timing in the adjustable parameters."

What vehicle is this information for because the WK2 tunes have not been released by DiabloSports?

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

My original email was:

Will there be an 89 octane performance tune for the 2011+ jeep grand Cherokees?

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

I just replied to mike about an eta. They have been pretty lax on giving an actual date on their forum and other ram/challenger forums I've been reading.

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

It seems that the information they told you about the higher octane fuel proves they already have a tune for the WK2. It's seems like its only a matter of time before they release it. Don't understand why they could not release the tune for the 5.7L before the 6.4L tune, but I guess they like releasing the SRT engine tune before a HEMI tune

Even though there are far more 5.7L GCs on the road than GC SRT8s, there's a lot more demand for the SRT8 tunes. Just like how there's a lot more demand for 5.7L tunes even though there are far more Pentastars on the road.

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

87 PON burns faster than 89 but the rate is somewhat fixed (are a lot of factors in just how fast). My point is that if 2 degrees is ok at 2000 rpm I would expect it to need a bit more at 4000 rpm. Does the tune look at this and adjust the whole map automagically ?

Back in the day we used to just bump distributers a bit and tune by ear (I have a vintage SUN 680 distributer analyzer but collect obsolete test equipment) to compenstae but advance curves are maps now & much more controllable.

BTW once they can fix one engine, doing the same for the rest using the same computer family should be trivial. I might be interested in one for the Pentastar.
