Question Programers?

Good or bad? anyone had any issues or experiences with programers for the 5.7L HEMI engine? Also any techs out there that confirm or deny if a programer will void my warranty?

The DiabloSport Predator seems to be the most popular programmer for the Hemi. The Predator will not void your warranty; you'll have the "Original Backup" tune to set everything back to stock when you need to.

Yes, and they will still be able to detect something. Look up previous posts. There is no undetectable programmer. I would not risk my lifetime warranty, seeing that I already had to change my torque converter at 4200 miles. Just my 2 cents for whatever it's worth.

I was just going by this website:

http://estore.websitepros.com/802805/Detail.bok?no=1241
"Warranty Safe! By restoring the "Original Backup" to a tuned vehicle, no dealership will ever be able to tell it was tuned by a programmer! "

I'm not standing by these statements, but I've seen a lot of posts online that say if you buy it from an authorized dealer, you should be in good shape.

There are a couple of good programmers out there for the HEMI. Superchip makes a good tuner that is for the basic tuning, and the Diablosport predator is the best for more involved tuning, but covers the basics with great effect. Several people on here have had contact with Diablosport with worries about their warranties and the response from them was it is undetectable and they guarantee it. Also, some of our tech members have said the predtor doesn't leave a shadow like the other programmers. The only thing they can see is a discrepancy in the count, which can be attributed to disconnecting the negative terminal and resetting the computer.

The Diablo is the only tuner which you can create a custom tune. SuperChips is all canned tunes.

I know for a fact that new tunes will be realeased from Diablo very soon. There have been some complaints about some knocking.
