What's it worth? I'm considering the Diablosport InTune 1000 DCX which comes with pre-installed tunes.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Yeah, for that much, you would. A guy at work just got a CAI, dyno and tune for his '13 Commodore SSV for $1,600. Got a bit more than 20 kW out of it too. I know it's not all about price but you want to get the most bang for your buck.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

There are threads all over this forum about tuning, and that the '14's simply cant be opened up enough yet to get any real result.

At the risk of being flamed, $1600 for 20-25kw is a joke, especially if you have already paid out for a CAI as well. I am NOT having a got at CHP or any other tuner, the fact is NONE of the tuners have come up with anything yet that makes the investment worthwhile (unless you SC of course, which is another $8k or so).

I get that we all want to say we have more power than stock, i'm included. But no way am I paying $1600 for 20kw. You can be sure as soon as some USA tuner cracks the codes, our SRT brothers over there will let us know about it. I don't see the AU tuners spending too much energy on it with so few cars to tune and get a return on their investment of time.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

i would have to agree... $1600 for 20kws not worth the effort. And i love spending money on this car.... Hope they crack it soon... Havent they been saying it for the last 2years

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Just took my srt8 in to get a clicking noise checked. They have told me I need new front discs and pads (27k kms) and want $3k to supply and fit. Anyone have any other options for discs? I read earlier that the Hawk Pads are good value for money but nothing re discs

Re: Sydney SRT Club

My mechanic took a couple of months to get the right size discs in. The part numbers for the fronts seem to be wrong as every USA supplier supplied rears when I ordered fronts. Any mechanic should be able to supply discs. It just seems our size is a little more scarce

Re: Sydney SRT Club

I'd be getting another opinion. How can you need discs at 27k?

Re: Sydney SRT Club

I have to day I did the Diablo Tune first and it was a waste of money. Different story all together now I have the RIPP SC installed!
