Default Stupid Question about Diablo?

Hi everyone,

Im sure this has been covered in threads but i just need a straight answer. Im looking to order a Diablo Predator next week. I have an 09 trx4 5.7 and im planning on doing a 93 octane tune.

So my questions are

1. Are there any current problems with the tuner and pinging with a 93 tune or any... stuff like that?
2. Is there anything anyone can recommend that im missing.

I have used these tuners before and have never had a problem, but i have heard of some with these trucks so i figured i would ask.

Thanks for any help.

That is a very good question, but I can only give you info that I know from my '07 345. Running the 93 tune on mine, I have no pinging issues, and I also make sure to run injector cleaner regularly to keep everything flowing properly. On rare occasions, people have had issues with the radio not working after a predator install, but it's VERY rare and is solved by loading the stock tune and reloading the tune.

I'm assuming you have a CAI and exhaust to get the most out of the tune?

No problems where with my '07. Just as long as the octane rating of the fuel is equal to or higher than the tune you choose, yer good.

I was wondering the same thing...do you already have an intake and exhaust? If not, the benefits of the tune will not be immediately realized.

I've been running the 93 octane for a couple of weeks now and haven't had a problem.
