Talking Re: DIABLO or FINISH SRT conversion

DirtyBlack thanks for the run-down on CMR, you know your stuff...sounds like you can dial it in to your specific engine output/mechanics and yield optimal performance with some diligent tuning via dyno/road testing! So I only have an intake and exhaust and do not plan on changing the cams, so the plug-and-play "canned" tunes would work fine for me? I dont even know why I want to make it faster (uhum prolly Joe and his garage pulls and loud ass exhaust)! I like the concept of extending the shift points and fuel ratio for some performance boost, and the ability to change tire size (for the future ) and better fuel economy for road trips. If I can get 1 mpg or more, I think it is def worth it!

Joe I know you got the Diablo, and I was reading that some said it was the first run for this application so there were some issues...are you experiencing any downsides? How much did you pay? And talk to me about the tow/haul and 1st gear launch...is that a nice trick? I need to try it; what else do you do for optimal launch?

Getting the front Bilsteins installed tomorrow morning...pretty stoked! Put the SRT8 sway in yesterday and that is MONEY too!

Re: DIABLO or FINISH SRT conversion

Whats up Brad?

Yeah for an optimal launch I do this:


1st Gear
Tow/Haul On
ESP Off


As far as the diablo I paid 379.99 for:

The Predator
USB Cables
180 T-stat

Re: DIABLO or FINISH SRT conversion

Chillen...great day here in SB and watching the Laker game! Is the 180 t-stat a must-do? Can you give me some insight as to what that helps? And with your mods did you feel the need to do a CMR tune or were the pre-programmed ones just fine?

Another note...are you in New York?

Re: DIABLO or FINISH SRT conversion

The tstat isn't a must do but it wouldn't hurt. IMO.

I don't have a CMR tune but I think that with my mods it isn't necessary per say but it is on a whole other level than the canned tunes. I might be getting one soon. I havent made up my mind.


And yes I am in Downtown Manhattan.

Re: DIABLO or FINISH SRT conversion

Yup. For the most part a CMR tune is overkill without supporting mods. You can wait and see if somebody else benefits and can show slips or you can be the guinea pig and help others out. I wouldn't say"do no do it!" but that is up to you.

I'll be selling the U7137's soon for $325 shipped.
