Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

I "think" I had the beta version before and it recognized the car but installing the 93 tune gave me weird behavior and steep increase in fuel consumption.

This time it works great on my 06, can feel the difference. Much, much more responsive, aggressive and linear. There now is a correlation between how I press on the accelerator and how the car responds, like the PCM had an epiphany and tries to speak the same language as my right foot.

Too early to tell on daily consumption but I just completed a 730 Km, mostly "highway" trip and its exactly the same as the stock tune.

"..... like the PCM had an epiphany and tries to speak the same language as my right foot."

I couldn't have said it better. That's exactly how my WK has been seen installing the diablo tune.

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

Bump, also i have a question.

would you recommend this http://marylandspeed.com/diablosport...05-p-2415.html

i would get a jet 180tstat with it

or this http://www.truckcustomizers.com/products/diablosport-predator-tuner-u7137-dodge-jeep-hemi.html

no tstat upgrade with that option.

is a new stat worth it or no? is it a difficult to get to part to replace?

I got the motrad based on reviews on the red site which seemed to favor it at the time I checked. Getting a stock replacement was not an issue. I just had overheating problems with jeeps and other cars and now function under the general principle that less is more when it comes to engine temp ... at least down to 180.

Re: Diablo Predator Release 05-06 HEMI

Just got my U7137 in the mail today. I plugged it into the Jeep and immediately noticed it had v9r05 on it. However, when I selected "performance tune" and then agreed to the little disclaimer, and it told me to turn the key to "ON", I do so, goes through the little 5 second deal, and then a loading screen comes up for a couple seconds, and then it says "be sure the key is turned to ON, do not start engine" - but the key is already on. I try to click continue but it doesn't recognize it and then I get a message "unplug tuner and try again". But trying again didn't work.

I was under the impression they had the bugs worked out of the key cycle for the 2005-2006 JGC 5.7's. I'm pretty disappointed they'd sell a product that obviously doesn't work.

Gotta wait to call tech support on Monday.

This is what I posted on the diablo forum. Appears I'm having the same problem as HEMIbeast.

I notice that rvtifer and Frankie both got it to work, but have 2006's. Maybe there is something weird with the 2005's.

I would get the 2nd option since a brand new Jet 180 is only $29.00 from Oreillys auto parts stores
