Default Diablo and MPG

Well I just did my second mod to the truck and the first performance mod. My diablo predator and I def love the difference, and for those of you who say a programmer wont help MPG here is the proof.




That is all highway driving with the A/C on.

Don't think that will work out so good for ya, DD...nothing will make a significant improvement for mileage with 35's...LOL

I know what you are saying, Fast Willy. I have a Predator on my Chrysler 300C SRT8 and saw a highway improvement as well. But around town, nope. Prolly because I love to get on it and hear that big HEMI roar! LOL

I love the programming options, functionality and flexibility of the Predator. I've learned to log, tune and tweak with it. I wish they made one for my '99 5.2L Ram!

Turning on the traction control light by getting on it from a light also doesn't help! LOL

If I turn that thing off, and hammer it from a stop, all I see out back is rubber smoke...heheheh

I did a K&N Intake and Magnaflow exhaust and saw about 2mpg increase driving my normal routes and back and forth to work. I recently got a predator and using the 87 Tune didn't see much improvement after the previous 2 mods mentioned.

I have noticed that the average almost immediately drops a couple tenths when starting up where before the Tune it would stay consistent. I am getting in the 14's right now.
