Default U7137 Diablo Predator question

I have a 04 Ram 1500 4x4 5.7 Hemi. I pull a 27' 5th wheel and have a question. Many of you recommend this device to alter power.

What else have you been able to do with this device? Can you alter shift points? Stiffen up shifts? Get the tranny to hold the gears a little longer?

The U7137 appears to be the only model available for the 04 and is now on sale for $300.00 and I am really considering the purchase.

Please share your experiences. Thanks, Dan

You'll get a boost in hp and tq depending on what tune you install; shifts are stiffened in the tunes, better throttle response, you can also alter shift points, disable MDS, up the rev limiter, lots of stuff. Also, check out RDP Performance, they're one of our supporting vendors and they have a great price on the predator. One thing, make sure you get the cables as well so you can update the tuner to the latest CROM and get the updates to your year/model's tunes.

I've read (just now) The transmission shift stuff for the 04 is coming soon. Some of that information was from 9/09. Does anyone know if that has been resolved?

Not doing any other mods at this time but thanks for the offer. This info is from RDP. Next to last item says shift points for the o3 and 04 coming soon. Since this is what I am most interested in, just wondering if any of you know if this issue has been resolved.?

U7137 Specific Features:

# Idle RPM Drive/Neutral, 04-08, 03 coming soon
# WOT Fuel 1k-3.8k / 4k-5k / 5k-7k
# Rev Limit Drive/Neutral, 04-08, 03 coming soon
# WOT Spark 1k-3.8k / 4k-5k / 5k-7k
# Tire Size
# Shift Points, 05-08, 03-04 coming soon
# Speed limit, 04-08, 03 coming soon

Thanks for your consideration,
Dan

Hi Billy. From what I have read it will not effect it. Just put your settings back and remove the device. No trace of any change is left behind.
