Re: DiabloSport Predator - Tweaking Suggestions

My weekend assessment with the CMR:

I LOVE IT! Why the hell didn't I do this before?!?!?! haha

The Silver Surfer runs much much smoother all around. Whether I'm at idle, mid shift, or WOT she's smooth and purrs like a kitten!

The power is RIGHT FAWKING there when you punch it off the line.

MPGs are def better especially w MDS off but on and off the fwy

Shifting is so butter smooth ya can barely feel it

On road performance is there, ready, and deadly for the inferior

Off road performance is there, ready, beastly on hill climbs, discouragingly fun for 4 wheel power slides, and just so much better over all.

IMHO if you have a DiabloSport Predator or Trinity, GET A CMR!!! You WILL NOT regret it.

Contact Johan and get your toona now!

-Coop!

So, I posted my question about the "noise" in the Diablosport forum. It's has close to 50 views and not a single reply. Jeep Garage forum peeps are better about helping out. So.... back to my original question. Anyone have any ideas about what I might be hearing at the shift points when going WOT?

Thanks,
Craig

Weird. Maybe something in the way the tranny is shifting? Try loading the 91 tune and see if ya get the same sound. Then we can go from there...

Quick couple of questions? How many miles are on your jeep, when was your last oil change and all that jazz?

Re: DiabloSport Predator - Tweaking Suggestions

It has 38k and some change. last oil change was at 37k. I changed the oil today just as a precaution. I will try the 91 tune and see if I get the same indication. My normal driving habits are not to go balls to the wall WOT. But, every once in a while I have to get on it, to merge into traffic. Stupid Virginia drivers don't know how to drive. It's always a competition ... for some reason letting someone merge in front of them is akin to saying you're a big floppy Pu$$y. I guess. So sometime I will stomp on it.

Thanks,
Craig

Re: DiabloSport Predator - Tweaking Suggestions

I realize this may be a silly question (or 3) but, did you check the trans fluid? Does it smell burnt? Have you ever changed it? Just trying to eliminate the trans as an issue...sounds more like exhaust....have a sound clip? : )

Not a silly question at all... I thought the same thing... tans fluid was changed at 30k... fluid level looks good, clean... no burning smell at all. I was trying to figure out how to get a video/sound clip of it without having a lot of wind noise also... I'll play around with it this weekend...

dude, i have that same sound. dont know what it is, but its not a bad thing.
If i run my jeep fast for about 10 minutes and do some launches and shift it sounds like i have a turbo and its kicking air off.

I have cai catback exhaust and a tune.
probly just the way our hemi's say thank you.

plus a lot of people cream when they hear that sound, even bitches like to hear it from time to time.
