Default DiabloSport Predator Knowledge Library

As more and more members here on the Z acquire the DiabloSport Predator for the HEMI powered Ram, more and more questions arise on how to update them, use them and their programming options.

The attached writeups are a collection of knowledge initially gleaned by many people across several car forums as the Predator became available for the HEMI powered Dodge/Chrysler LX cars (Charger, Magnum & 300). The Predator functionality has not significantly changed since it was developed so the information is still relevant for the truck application.

Attached to each post listed below is an MSWord document for:

Post 1: Predator initial setup

Post 2: DiabloSport Update instructions.

Post 3: Data Logging with the Predator.

Post 4: DiabloSport Downloader - Custom Tune Installation Instructions.

Post 5: Air Fuel Ratios and Adding or Removing Fuel at WOT. Caution: If you are not technically savvy or do not know your air / fuel ratio, leave this work to an authorized DiabloSport tuning shop!

Post 6: A definitive write up by XERyder on the DiabloSport Predator. You'll find this document extremely helpful in answering most of your questions on how to set up, load and use your Predator.

An Update:

Recently, Dennis (BigDaddy) had a problem restoring his stock tune. He got the following message on the Predator:

Reinstall failed with the following error code: [PCM: CROM UNLOCK FOR REFLASH (-1)].

After contacting DiabloSport, the following solution was found:

Crank the truck for about 20 seconds, shut it off and reinstall the stock tune. Essentially a PCM re-boot.

If you do not have a DiabloSport authorized CMR tuner in your area, get in touch with these folks who can help you get a tune for your truck:

There are a few tuners who have done email CMR tunes nationwide. Below has a lot of experience with Dodge Vehicles.

Stu @ Inertia Motorsports http://inertiamotorsports.com/
Sean @ hemifever tuning http://hemifevertuning.com

Also, you can contact Johan at DiabloSport for a tune.
