What is the best engine tuner to get?
And is 25 to 35 hp gains the most you can get for these units? I know I am new to this, but that does not seem like much for the money.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!!

The consensus around here is The Diablosport Predator for the Hemi's . And yes , thats a pretty good estimate on hp increase .

I got the diablosport trinity, its a little pricey but I love the information it puts out! Also 23-35hp gains is more then enough for you to notice the increase! When I hooked mine up and tuned it, and I could certainly feel and hear a significant difference!

I run the DS predator myself and love the 91 tune. Now, another great tuner for the hemi is the Superchip Cortex as it gives you the same basic functions as the predator, but with a bit more tranny control. The pred is the best all-around tuner, so if you ever want a custom tune, the pred is the way to go.

Predator has spark and a/f controls.. SC Cortex has tranny tuning options (shift points, torque management).

Both are good in their own respect, I just wish one company would put the whole shibang together. Id just on that product in seconds Im still in the air. Tranny tuning or custom a/f and spark tables tuning. Although DS said they can remove a bit more Torque mangement if you want so Im probably going DS>
