Diablo Sport Tune

A friend of mine is looking at a 2009 Grand Cherokee SRT that the previous the previous owner has installed a "Diablo sport tune" My friend now has concerns about owning it with the tune installed.

So his question is, can it be removed without leaving a trace in the computer of the Jeep if a mechanic was to review the program? A friend of ours has had his warranty voided on his Ford because the mechanic found evidence that the truck had a tune previously so that is where the concern comes in.

Re: Diablo Sport Tune

You can return the Jeep back to stock without any easily identifiable traces that it had a tune. However, does this Jeep have any mods that require a custom tune? Or s I just a stock Jeep with a tune?

Re: Diablo Sport Tune

The only other (we are aware of) is the cold air intake. What would be any other mods that would require the tune?

Re: Diablo Sport Tune

These PCMs are pretty resilient...we just tuned a cammed SRT8 that the current owner bought completely unaware it was modified. it was running a fairly aggressive cam profile on the stock tune. Not necessarily a good idea, but my point is that an intake, exhaust etc, do not "require" a tune.

How do you remove the tune from a Jeep?

Re: Diablo Sport Tune

He'll need the programmer and there will be an option to reload the original backup.

doesn't sound like he has an original back-up. If the op's friend bought the rig with a diablo tune installed, then you're not going to be able to reload a "stock" tune. It's a trip to the dealer - to have it flashed...

Agreed, I was saying if he had the handheld. If not, which is possible, off to the dealer he goes...

Re: Diablo Sport Tune

What they said, if you have the tuner, you can "force" a stock tune, otherwise off to the dealer for a re-flash.

Re: Diablo Sport Tune

How would you go about asking the dealer to do a re-flash without having warranty issues in the future?
