Why the hell is no one discussing the new Diablo tune?!!!!!
 
Mine is arriving tomorrow but I can't find one freaking thread that has a detailed opinion of performance gains. I figured at least someone would make a vid or even find more info on DS website.

Help!

Sarcasm from the last reply is over. I can't comment on the 11+ GC's but I will say the canned tunes for the 10' SRT8 were mediocre. Custom tunes make it happen.

Is it only for the Hemi? Or have they released tunes for the 3.6L as well?

I started a thread and posted in another one in hopes of getting some real dialogue going but I feel it hasn't been out long enough. Most don't want to spend the money on a Trinity or Intune without more info and I don't blame them. I don't have a Dyno nor do I possess the technical skill to break it down for you. So far I like it but I wish it was available for my Predator because it's expensive to have to buy a new unit for the tunes that you get with it and it's hard to get answers to questions at times. I have found instructions lacking in terms of explaining the parameters and what changes will do what. You're almost forced to pay someone else when I am sure that with the right documentation, many of us would get alot more out of it on our own. By the time you get a custom tune done you're in quite a bit. A real FAQ would be nice on their part.

I am using the 93 tune and it's much more responsive, shifts are better and the top end speeds arrive quicker on the highway. Seat of the pants Dyno tells me it's much better but I still think it can improve dramatically off the line. My 08 Hemi was a beast with a custom tune so i will go that route again in a couple months. Used Shell 93 in this tank. Did a 0-60 in 7.12 with the tune, never tried stock so I can't compare now. If you have any specific questions, i can try and help but since yours is almost at your door you'll soon see for yourself. Just make sure you update your unit and you should have no issues. I did get the voltage too low for programming message a few times but it was about -10* with the windchill yesterday so maybe that had something to do with it. You'd think with the battery inside the truck it would be ok. Just start the truck, rev it a bit and try again. Worked every time. I used the key instead of the start button just to avoid any problems.

Turned MDS Off , Throttle Boost 10% and added 5% fuel across the board on Mikel's recommendation because of the CAI and TB. Will turn off traction this weekend and see how it performs off the line.

I also noticed today that their hp/torque numbers were half of what they were a few days ago. The intune said 30hp/35lbs ft gains for the 93 tune. Today it was 15/20 on the email announcement and website info. No one has answered that question yet over there.

Good Luck


**BTW, I wont be taking any vids or sound bytes**

Really? I highly doubt anyone with a simple canned tune is gonna pay for dyno results. Would you?

diablotoona

Does custom tunes via email. You send him logs he sends tune. You do a mod. You send logs. He sends proper tune. This goes on forever. Cost is more than reasonable. I can only speak to wk1 srt but a custom tune based on your logs is prolly good for .5 second to start.

Find lots more details at lxforums.com

His name is Johan

And did and may still have a day job at Diablo.


Johann also has two main suggestions for ALL HEMIs:
Run a catch can.
Buy good gas.

He can see gas differences in the logs.

For the wk1 srt8 the canned tunes were never impressive due to all the factors they are trying to assume. Plus add in some corporate lawyers and end result a canned tune will never gain much.

Even a dyno tune is only so good since a lot of assumptions are still made and it is NOT the real world. There is nothing as good as a custom tune for your location for your mods your motor etc.
