Yes, it will fix speedo errors due to a plus size wheel and tire combo.

I like the updates you can get and the versatility of the Predator tool and the tuning options. I have two HEMI powered vehicles and they both have the Predator on them.

It can improve mileage but what most folks find is that while the mileage improvement isn't huge, the programming options of the tool make it well worth the money.

For instance, my CSRT8 Predator currently holds 4 tunes in it:

a street tune
a strip tune
a road trip tune
the stock tune

And I can use any of those tunes as needed simply by plugging the tool into the vehicle, return it to stock, then load the tune I want. 5 minutes and I'm done.

The predator is a great programmer, just saw on Diablo's site that they have released the predator for the 4.7L!

I don't think Diablosport makes a tuner for the 4.7 . Bully dog or Superchips .

Wow , I just went and checked Diablosports website and I stand corrected , they do offer a programmer now . I would recommend them personally . I have a tuner from them on my SRT 8 car and love the gains .
