Re: My 5.7 Diablo Review

Joe, do you think the extra power is spread evenly over the entire powerband?

I ask because I feel like the 91 tune on the superchips applies more of it's umph above 2500 RPM. Driving around town normally when I keep the revs below 2500/2600, it doesn't feel much different than before - but if I get it to 2500 and dip into the throttle a bit it takes off like a bat out of hell.

I can feel a difference at that lower RPM. Its way different than Stock IMO. The throttle lag is REALLY reduced with this Diablo. When at in town speeds, I dont get that lag when I lightly hit the gas like before. This is a great tool.

When you get beyone 2500, the Jeep runs like you said, a bat out of hell.

Also IDK what it did but my exhaust seems louder. (It might be in my head though.)


I can only imagine what a CMR tune will do.

Yeah the throttle response for me is 100% better.

I agree with the exhaust too, I noticed it sounds not so much louder, but a little beefier if that makes sense.
