Any one know if
 
I can use the same predator for the 2011 Ram 5.7 and the 2010 challenger 6.1

To me it looks like I'd need to different models ?

I believe that they are different!! I remember someone asking about this before and it had to be reprogrammed to use on a different car. Cost almost as much as a new tuner!

While I do NOT have the 'correct' answer ... I can relate this personal information....

I HAD a 2006 300c SRT8 (6.1) and when I went with a 2010 Challenger (5.7), I
contacted Diablo and they told me 'use the same tuner', which I did. I had to 'unprogram' the 300c (return to stock) and then upload the tune to the 5.7.

That said....

I am told that as of 'now' the 2011 Ram is still being 'computed' and you can see
this from their website... but I will tell you as I have been told... be patient, it's coming "SOON" (they said early 2011, and it is that now)...

The "part numbers' taken from the diablo site for the RAM and the challenger/other mopars, IS different... so.....



(I know there is not an answer in there, just sharing personal experience)

Thanks Guys,
I'll give them a call and see what's up, would be nice to be able to use the one programer for both, I thought I read somewhere you could already do that .

I will say the mds on the ram is a pain in the city good for the highway, I'm learning that if you put tow haul on it disables it....

I believe you can go from the 5.7 to the R/T 5.7, but the 6.1L is a different engine with different parameters. You'll need to get a new tuner for the 6.1L for sure.

Yes, I understand that but you can buy one programmer, and load different tunes into each vehicle. Not having to buy a programer for each is what I meant

Ah, I get you. With the predator, I don't believe you can't do this, once it is married to one vehicle it can not be transfered to another. I just checked and even the trinity can only tune 1 vehicle at a time, but does support multiple platforms. You would just need to return your ram back to the stock tune, remove the trinity, then tune your SRT, and its list of platforms is much larger.

I'd still check out the Diable forums and see if there's anything in there.

Thanks cdnoil,
I will look into it, However my gripe with the Ram is mds and if you shift into
5th you disable mds so maybe I'll get the trinity for the Challenger instead.

Still would be nice to be able to load tunes on both tho !
