How much modding do you plan to do to the engine and suspension? The diablo is the way to go if you plan to put more than just a CAI and exhaust on it. Also it can change speedo setting if you put larger than stock tires on. As far as I understand it, the Superchip just mods for a CAI and exhaust, but doesn't have the adaptability the diablo does.

Well, in answer to the original question, go with the DiabloSport Predator. Then, when you get with Hennessey, they can get a tune to use with that programmer to account for, and enhance, the mods. That programmer is so flexible and full of good features you can't go wrong. And, after you mod your engine, you can continue to use it with a custom tune built to compliment your mods.

I've used Edge products, in one case stacked Edge systems, on diesel pickups before...they worked well. But the systems I used were pre-programmed and you couldn't load and use custom tunes with them.

Have they changed or do they only offer their "canned" tunes?
