Default Diablo Sport Predator Stolen...

To make a long story short; my wife and my cars were broken into about a month ago. I had my predator in the center console with the (luckily) 87 oct performance tune with MDS off.

I did not have the PC USB cable to save my stock tune as I only had the darn tuner for 2 months...

I've looked in a few places of the possibility of replacing the tuner but seems it is not going to be possible. My question is has anyone gone through this and know of any options?

Thank you for the help!!

One option is PCM flash at the dealership but I would call Diablo Support and ask for thier advice.

This is a dumb question but would the dealership be able to return it to stock? Thus allowing me to pick up another predator?

The dealership can return to stock, not sure the cost.

You can just get the dealership to flash your pcm to stock and get any updates at the same time. Then buy a new programmer and start having fun again.

Sucks man and unfortunate that you have to now go through this. It really is useless to whomever stole it since it is tied to your trucks VIN.

Did you record any numbers off the programmer? Eventually SOMEONE is going to try and get it unlocked. See if Diablo can watch for it.

Thanks for all the help! And yes whomever stole it was not sure of what they were taking but being it was stolen on 4-20-12; I have to assume it was a crackhead.

I unfortunately don't have much paper work on the unit as I purchased it off eBay (for a steal at $175) and the seller didn't have the original packaging. Lesson learned about recording serial #'s because the same thing happened with my JVC cd player and wife's old iPod's...

I will investigate getting the dealer to re flash and wait to buy a new predator!

Thanks everyone!

Word to those who come across this thread.

Write down the serial numbers of items in your truck!
Don't leave your programmer in your truck like I did!

Insurance typically wants all receipts, serial numbers, yada yada to ensure you actually owned what you say you owned before they cut you a check for your stolen items.
