I am hoping to get somebody to do a Modern Muscle dyno on a tb. PM me if you have a dyno in your area that can handle your awd (if that's what you have)
Thanks.

Re: Diablosport I1000 DCX now supports 2014 5.7

Im definitely interested sean about the tune. I have a shop that i go to that has an awd dyno. Where can i get the throttle body?
I can throw the jeep on the dyno and do a couple runs to show the difference.

I have some more 0-60 pulls on video I will upload later.

Yeah i noticed the similar temps in cold weather (under 30 degrees). how difficult is it to change out the thermostat? what kind of fan adjustments would you do?

Hi hemifever! I looking to purchase the tune for my 2014 GC Overland Hemi in the next 2 weeks once the ice around my area disappears. My buddy just picked up a '14 Durango R/T Hemi. Anyone know if we can use one tuner for both vehicles?


Please let me know!
Thanks.

The tuner can only have a tune installed to one vehicle at a time. If you both want to run tunes you will both have to get a tuner.

Question for any one that had installed this on their '14. I've read reviews and seen you tube videos of people saying to remove the push button start and use the real key when downloading tunes. I was under the impression that is not possible on the 14 so what did you guys do? Also, I tow a decent size boat (~5500lbs) regularly in the summer does any one know how these tunes effect towing? Or is it even safe to tow when running these tunes? Lastly, I was on the diablo site today and it looks like the trinity is now avail for us, which is better? Thanks

With the WK2, I don't believe there is a way to use the "real" key with the push button start. There are, however, a very specific set of steps you must follow when loading and unloading tunes from the vehicle. I would caution you to follow these steps exactly. There are people who have rendered their vehicles lifeless and towed to the dealer, perhaps because they didn't RTFM.

Diablosport says to avoid doing anything during the programming process that would cause a change in voltage as that will interrupt the writing process. This includes opening any door during the process. Because it takes about 15 minutes to write a tune and I don't feel like sitting in the vehicle waiting for the process to complete, what I do is to connect the inTune to the Jeep and roll down the driver's side window so I can control the inTune and still have the ability to cycle the start switch periodically as necessary during programming.

As for your towing question, I have no experience with towing while using the inTune, but you may want to post the question on Diablosport's support forum. Their engineers should be able to provide you with an answer.

Finally, I have not had any experience with the Trinity. It does have some nice features that the inTune does not have, like a larger screen, more robust user interface, and the ability to clock a 0-60 and 1/4 mile times.

Not sure how a tune would affect towing. You have more power, so it's a good thing for towing IMO. As long as you are using the correct fuel set for the tune you are using.
As far as installation goes, the push button works fine. When it asks you to turn on the ignition, you have to press it twice, to put the vehicle in run. Then push once from there to turn off the ignition. You have to repeat this several times during the installation. I did it with the door open. The door chime is annoying, but you get used to it.

Thanks for info guys. One more question. I understand that you can disable MDS if you want but does loading a performance tune automatically disable it? I know many here don't like MDS but I appreciate the good gas mileage while in eco mode and want to keep the MDS/fuel eco, until I put it in sport. Once in sport I want the extra power and better response...and no MDS. Thanks for any help.

Nope - all of the "canned" tunes that come with the tuner leave MDS on unless you disable it.

Even if you disable it, the transmission shift points don't change, only the 4cyl mode is deactivated. The shift points make the biggest difference from what I have read.
