HOW TO: Install DiabloSport Predator for 2007 wk 5.7 Hemi, a pictorial guide!

This was a super easy install, but I decided to show you all "how to" anyways!

Open to box containing the fun. (Notice my lil predator "Rhodey" likes the Diablo! haha)


Purdy ain't she? And not a bad thing to say on the box! haha


This is the port you plug the Predator into


Plug it in and it will automatically turn on. (Make sure your key is turned to the OFF position and everything else is off too)


And away we go...







The Diablo Predator stores your stock tuning


Had a lil time to visit JG from my iPhone4 via TapTalk!


Predator backed-up w stock tuning




As the tune is being installed the system automatically checks the sensors





Thanks!!



All good, no warning lights or trouble codes at all!


After a 10 mile cruise here is my assessment: I definitely noticed a big gain. I only did the 91 Octane tune, adjusted the tire size, adjusted tire PSI sensors and made the throttle a lil more sensitive for now! I would love to know what other tunes you guys who have Predators have used as well...?

All-in-all, It's a great performance upgrade. I definitely recommend it!! I will check in after a month to give an updated report and see if I get any MPGs out of it! Thanks for reading, and have fun!

Coop!

If you can, get a CMR tune (custom tune) for your Jeep. It is leaps and bounds better than the canned tunes that come preloaded onto the Predator. I have my SRT tuned by Johan at Diablosport. Great guy to deal with and his tunes are affordable for everyone!

Yea I remember you saying that from the other post. How much more gain do you feel you got? Did you just send him your tuner and he loads it, and sends it back? Any finally, (lol 20 questions, I know) do you have Johans info? Thx Joe

I would say an additional 10-15 hp over the canned tune. But the main thing with a CMR tune is the driveability. So much better than the canned tunes.

What happens is that you grab a copy of your stock tune off the Jeep, have it in the Predator, download all necessary software off of diablosport.com, grab the tune off the Predator, email it to Johan and he sends you a CMR tune which you put onto the Predator using the same software you used to grab the stock tune off the tool, upload it to the Jeep and enjoy.


His email is diablotoona@gmail.com

Lol nope. 87, 91, n 93. Although like rp says it's all about the CMR. I talked to his contact and the CMR is much better. The "canned tunes" are ok, but to get a more detailed tune for your wk gotta finish it off w the CMR.

Nice write up!
Just thought I might add my own experience with the DSP.
If after you load the tune and go to drive off, you suddenly realize that all is not well with your GC (mine had no acceleration and wouldn't shift correctly), don't panic, you didn't kill it! Just disconnect the battery for a few mintues, then re-connect and you should be good to go.
