What's up and welcome! 1st off, you're going to love that Predator - it's worth the money! It'll wake up that HEMI, custom tooned or not. I'm not sure on the custom tune process, but do a search for "JeepCoop" thread; i think he described what he recently did.

As far as the unit, I bought mine used, but they do NOT come with custom tunes; however there are "canned" tunes, which still make a big difference. Check the site and forums for more info. Good stuff there. You'll be in the Predator Dodge Gas section :thumbsup:

Pretty much right on ^^^

It will come with a couple "canned" tunes on it which you can use if you dont want a custom tune!

For the custom tune, You can tell them your mods and they will make one for you! Then you can datalog it and send that to them and they can improve on the tune even more!

Hope that helps!

Hello all thanks for all the insight, I just put the KN intake in and it's sick. I also improve my gas milage from 15mpg to 19mpg,, Sound like a monster coming out of the woods . Once i get the tunner in , Ill mess around with that. I think the last thing I'll do with it is just a muffler .. I filled my tires with the nitrogen to help my gas milage as well.. I think it all in my head , truck rides a bit smoother ?? Any news on a good muffler super 44 I'm thinking

Nitrogen wont do a thing for mileage. That Flowmaster Super 44 will resonate like a b*tch in the cabin. Try a borla or magnaflow...

I doubt that intake alone improved your gas mileage by 4mpg. Maybe 1.

I used to be located about 40 mins away, in Jackson...

unless the fule sensor is off , its now reading at 19 fule saver , I work up in summit for a dealership, so I drive all highway and put 93 in and drive 80 all the way up. I really dont know much about cars , so I'm just stating what I see. I dont need to lie about about nothing about.Driving local 16.7mpg .. However thanks for the input.
My Diablo tunner just came in so I'll adjust from there. Thanks ,, just wanted some input on the muffler.

Im sure youre honest but unless the nitrogren pressure exceeds the pressure you had in your tires previously, it wouldnt make a difference... Same deal with your intake, unless your stock airfilter was FILTHY the difference is marginal at best.

I have been playing with motors for 10 yrs now, I started with ATVs/dirtbikes and such and moved on to cars, there are very few modifications that increase gas mileage at all, much less by 20%

i think the higher gas mileage reading is from doing lots of highway driving. when you get about 60 the car moves. the engine doesnt have to work as hard to maintain speed. if you do lots of local driving, im sure the number will drop.

Yeah.. the reading's aren't super accurate.. but gives you a nice estimate of what ya doing. CAI makes the car sound nasty though :-)

Thanks for the shout out, Jlew! The "canned" tunes are great but are only a minor wake up for the Hemi. You can contact Johan who works for DiabloSport and he will ask you what mods you have. Then you send him a back up of your stock tune and then he sends you the CMR. The CMR is the best overall improvement for the Hemi! Johan really knows how to wake up this sleepy monster!! Get the Diablo and then email him here... diablotoona@gmail.com

Hopefully this helps. :thumbsup:
