Default Diablo vs. Superchip

I have a 2009 dodge ram 1500 5.7l V8.

I am torn between the Diablo Predator and the Superchip Flashpaq, so i need some advice on what to buy for my truck to get the beest results and not void any warranties.

Pro Diablo:
Someone said on another post that putting on a superchip will void your warranty and it looks like the diablo will give a little more power as seen on dyno charts.

Pro Superchip:
I can set my own shiftpoints, take of the speed limiter, and change from economic tunes to performance tunes. Updating this system seems easier as well.

ANY help would be much appreciated!

I can only comment about the Diablo Predator handheld Pwhite
1. Yes you can change your shift points 1st to 2nd.. 2nd to 3rd gear shifts + or - 600rpm (5600 stock) same goes for rev limit.
2. You can max speed limit north of 150mph with Diablo also.. 93 canned tune I believe is already set at 155 mph but is adjustable
3. Economy tune? .. the Diablo has an 87, 91, 93 canned performance tune
Go to each website and see what parameters are available for adjustments and see what fits your style of driving.

I don't believe it gets any easier than the diablo! The DSP is the best... Hands down! I have my speed limited cranked all the way up to 195. If that is not fast enough for you then you must be running out on the salt flats! I have had my dsP for over two years and wouldn't trade it.

There's not too much difference between the two. The superchip has better tranny control and tunes, the predator is the only choice if you want custom tuning these days. The DSP has my limiter set at 300km/hr, and the truck will never ever reach that speed in my lifetime. I'm happy with my 224km/hr.
