Just to offer up another opinion.....I did not have a positive experience with the BD tuner and sent it back for a refund. I was contemplating on giving this Hypertech a try and see how it works out. So, I guess you should take what you read with a grain of salt. The negative reviews you read about the Hypertech are the same views I would express about the BD tuner. It works great on some trucks and not so great on others. I guess the same may apply to the Hypertech.

Update: my interceptor is still doing fine and my truck runs great! I believe when I bought it they too had a 30 money guarantee. Could a hemi fever tune on my diablo be better? I would certainly hope so for the money. But honestly the interceptor will stay on, not only cuz it feels better than the can91 tune from diablo, but for the not tampering with the ecm factor. Now if I supercharge in a few years, well I'll have the diablo for that.

How easy is it to change the tune from say the Premium back to stock? I tow a 5500lb camp trailer and I doubt that any of the "tuners" would be good idea to use while towing.

The price is a definate plus with the hypertech however I'm leaning towards the Diablo with a hemifever tune for ease of changing tunes on the fly.

I decided today to go ahead and order one. My main hope is an increase in throttle response and gas mileage.

My understanding is it auto adjusts to the octane u put in via the sensors. I myself have been running 93 only.

Absolutely, In mid July I've got a 2000 mile round trip road trip to make.

Will be delivered on Monday and connected Monday night.

I highly doubt u will be disapointed. I did mufflex, then k and n and neither made much of a butt dyno difference. The hypertech def did for me.
