I do notice more torque at lower rpms.

As far as the feedback, I havent left anything yet! I'm still thinking on what I'm gonna leave.
try hooking up the predator, pick whatever tune you want to start with (87, 91, or 93 octane tune), then go to "Modify Parameters". I think there is an option in there to disable MDS. You'll have to install the tune again after that, but you won't have to wait for the original backup to be saved again.

As for the shifting, Diablosport made the shifts firmer intentionally. I'm not sure if there is an option that allows the user to adjust shift firmness- you could definitely have that adjusted if you got a custom tune done.

Thank You Very Much!!!!
I have had limited time to search "how to take off the mds on the predator". I will def. try this as soon as I get a chance. Also good to know about the shift firmness! It seems like I feel it more on the mds.

Thanks again..

I finally got my 60 bucks and also the refund on the data cable (had to file a claim on it, send it back, and still esculate it through ebay to get my money back.) I have never had such bad luck on eBay. I will say this tho, eBay has been awsome as far as having my back!

I tuned my Ram on 93 octane and turned the mds off. Gas milage seems to be the same on the highway. It seems to dip down a little more in town (not much tho maybe 1 mpg) with mds turned off. With mds on, gas milage seemed to improve a mile a gallon and it was all country road driving, no interstate at all.

The power of the truck seems to come at much lower rpms. I can drive up hills in high gear now where normally it would down shift. Throttle response is quicker aswell.
My seat of the pants dyno was this...
Before the tune, it wouldn't spin, squeak, or belch a tire from a stand still. Now, its a different story. From a stand still the truck will spin a good 15-20 feet sideways (I will note that both times were out in the middle of no where; No people, houses, or youtubes around.)

Anywho thats my write up. I am a true believer in the predator. Well recommended here! I just hope you dont go through what I did to get one. Go buy one from a sponsor here and save yourself the headache!
