Default Add me to the list! First real mod is a Diablo!

So after some debating on weather or not to go intake first or tuner i decided to try out the tuner. Really it boiled down to there is a shop close by that had them in stock and i didn't have to wait lol!

After putting nearly 100miles on it already today driving around and running errands and lunch with the wifey i'd say so far i'm pretty damn impressed with the diablo tuner. Power is there, seems like its got a little more off the line, and my fuel millage is whats getting me, i installed a soft cover on the bed and k&n drop in this past weekend and now the tuner. I drive 50 miles one way to work 3 times a week and was getting around 16-16.5 hwy. Today after 100 miles or so all hwy when i reached my driveway i was at 19.7mpg and was over 20 for parts of the trip. I hope this last, and i had my foot in it a few times lol! Regardless it seems to be a worthwhile investment and its very straight forward.

I have it set on the 87OCT tune and the transmission performance tune, i put 89 mid-grade fuel in the truck and so i picked that tune because i'd rather put better fuel in the 87 tune than a 91 tune and put in 89 if that makes any sense.

Questions for yall when install an exhaust and intake do i need to do anything else with the tuner it self, or just leave it be?

Thanks!!!!!!!!! LOVE THIS TRUCK!!

I had the Edge tuner in my other truck and if it works the same way you should not have to go back to factory to switch. Can you possilbly put a picture of the tuner on here installed on your truck. I think I might get one. Just wondering what it looks like.

You can leave your tune alone when you install the intake and exhaust.

Congrats on a great mod!

Thanks everyone i will post a pic soon for the member who asked. Well i enjoyed it for all of 2 days! Took my new toy in to get the oil changed to a full synthetic and tires rotated....and would'nt you know my ball joints in the front are bad!!!!!! And both front tires were worn to the steal belts on the inside. So i bought new tires some Cooper Zeon LTZ all terrains and after arguing with the dealership they agreed to pay for new ball joints since i've only had the truck for 26 days even though their warranty does'nt cover it. So dropping it off today!
