More HP, quicker throttle response, crisper shifts and better shift points...it's all good

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

Thanks for elaborating. This does seem appealing and something I'd be interested in. I noticed awkward shifts when accelerating uphill...would be nice to smooth it out.

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

I'm wondering if us 5.7's will get tuning right away as it looks like they are only testing charger/challengers, wranglers, and SRT8's.

Actually contacted the company and they told me that the Ram will be first, but the Grand Cherokee will follow right after. I got the impression it would not be long at all.

Already have one. I previously tuned my 2005 Hemi Grand Cherokee. All I will need to do is download it from their website when it was available.

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

I have been constantly checking Diablosport's Test Vehicles forum...

The only bummer is that they have not yet requested a Grand Cherokee with the 5.7L for testing yet... Wrangles and Rams, Chargers etc., but no WK2's...

Wonder how long after the SEMA announcement that they will get around to tuning the Grand Cherokee.....

I would think that the tuning itself for the WK2 5.7 shouldn't be much different from prior WKs, just different trans and updated parameters I would assume. Either way I'm holding out until we know for sure before I buy mine. $500+ before the holidays on a rumor right now ain't gonna cut it.
