Wait till the next fill up for the 91 performance tune. In the mean time you can put the 87 Performance tune on while you wait for that gas to burn.

Is 91 the highest Octane you can get? If not, put in the 93 gas with the 93 tune.

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

91 octane is available at most stations around me. i can find 93 but have to drive 15-20 minutes to get it.

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

can i just add a bottle of octane boost to the 89 that's in the tank and install the 91 tune. you know how it is when you get a new toy. i don't want to wait a week before i install it. http://www.autobarn.net/nosocboosoff.html

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

i had the cmr dealer install the 91 tune today even though i have a full tank of 89 octane in the jeep. he said that it's fine to run it on 89 you just won't get all the performance out of the tune. he said it won't affect any knock sensors or cause any pinging. he said to get the full hp/tq i'd have to use 91 octane.

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

i was told those cans of octane boost dont really work.. or atleast you need to add a ridiculous amount to increase one octane.. That is what the guy at autozone told me. I cant want to order my diablo.. Where is the best place to order it.. Can you just order it from anyone that has them? Are there actually different predators, or is it just the software that is loaded on it? So if i order from anyone i will just have to download the latest software for the 05 Jeep?

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

there are hundreds of online places to order them or you can go directly through diablosport and buy on their website. i did a dealer locator and had them order it. they included the pc interface kit and installed the tune for me. no shipping. I paid $375. they did have to upload an update before installing the tune.

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

so you have to download the tune from diablo for our jeep (89, 91, 93 etc..) and the update is so it works on 05 jeep? what about tire size, shift points etc.. that is all on the diablo correct?

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

the tune is pre-installed on the predator. the update is so that the tuner recognizes your specific jeep and is paired with it. 93 octane, 91 octane, 87 octane, and modify stock tune come pre-installed.
