It's more than a rumor, but I don't blame you for waiting.

Until I see 11+ Hemi WK2 in the list of compatible vehicles then to me it's just a rumor.

That and wait for some reviews to see if it even does something. I've got caught in the hype with some JK stuff that came out and it won't happen again. I don't need to be the first person on the block with a new product. No more preorders for me.

For sure! There is proof they have cracked the code. just look at the vehicles they are currently testing/dynoing...

As for potential gains, just look at the numbers they were able to achieve on the hemi's of previous model years...

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

Just out of curiosity does any have the numbers handy for what kind of increases they were able to achieve on previous hemis?

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

roughly 10-20hp on a canned tune, IIRC

Keep in mind the 10-20hp is through the power band. I'm just hoping for better shift points and throttle response. And hopefully get more use out of my Volant.

When I added a tune to my 2011 Mustang 5.0 it was a whole new beast. Looking forward to tuning this Hemi!

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

The canned tunes are respectable but a good CMR tune makes a huge difference. I've already put Johan on alert for me.

Re: 2011+ tuning via Diablo is COMING!

I am new to tuning as well. Have always seen it on the Spike car shows like trucks and gearz but always thought it was just plug and play. My question is why and how would you do a CMR (custom tune) vs. the canned tune? Is it because you have other aftermarket parts on your rig?

I have a 2012 Laredo X Hemi 4x4 Off-Road I with no CAI or upgraded exhaust and don't plan on adding them. Should I just go with the canned?

Thanks in advance and excuse my ignorance!

For your application the canned tunes would be sufficient. Custom tunes are tailored to your vehicle and needs. Example, say you want to maximize the performance of an aftermarket CAI and use 89 octane, then you would get one custom made for that. Or later down the road add headers and cams, a custom tune is needed for that.
