tuner came in question before i install it
 
so my diablo intune came in yesterday. i am ordering my BT catch can tomorrow. so far ive done a seafoam treatment through the vac line and cleaned the throttle body. here in about an hour im gonna get an oil change. i have been running 91 octane for the past 2 months or so. is there anything i should do prior to the tuner install? also should i just do the 87 tune until i get the catch can? i want to get the most out of the tuner with out messing anything up. ive never had a tuner on any of my trucks before so im very new to this. thanks guys

you should be able to go ahead and install it as your truck is. that's good you've already been running 91 so you can go straight to the 91 tune.

I think you are all set! Just follow the directions and call customer support if you need it. They are generally extremely helpful

some one told me on the forum that if i use the 91 tune with out a catch can it could cause detonation or something which would destroy my engine so ive been apprehensive

Yup, what gonefishin said. A catch can helps... but not that much. You won't have any issues running the 91 tune without a catch can. Tons of guys do it.

thanks guys now i feel better. ill try to get a video before and after on 0-60 if i remember.

well i attempted to install the tuner last night but after it got to 99% calibrated it came up with an error and then went into safe mode. i tried everything i could. i guess im gonna have to call them today.

brondondolon 08-22-2013 02:07 PM

called them up a little bit ago. they fixed the problem. i went for a little drive just down my street since my gas tank is on E. it wasnt a CRAZY increse of power but definately noticeable and im happy with it. i did the 91 octane tune.

is there anything in the settings of the 91 tune that i can do to get some more power out of it?
