Default Diablo predator?

I have been looking and reading everything about these but nothing like personal opinion!.. Is the diablo worth the money and if so how many horses do u gain?!.. One more thing lol... Is it hard to program?!

I love mine...pretty sure everyone that has the DSP will say the same thing...as far as how many HP, it all depends on what else you do with it...it's hard to judge with just the programmer....but the DSP site says it's like 20-25 or something like that

I have the diablo sport trinity, absolutely love it. I use it to monitor knock and timing real time, which is really nice. I put it on the dyno and did a before and after from the stock tune to the diablo 93 tune an we saw 8 hp at 3000rpm and about 12-14hp at 4600ish... anyway it added a bit of kick, I'm also at 2000 feet above sea which may contribute to not getting the 20-25 hp gain. After this I threw my AFE stage 2 intake on and saw no gains this of course made me sad but the tone inside the truck changed incredibly, also I think I might see some gains in the real world with actual airflow around the truck, just my 2 cents.

you won't regret buying a DSP. easy to use and lots of variables should you want to change something specitic. you can also read codes, change tire diameter, etc.

jc - which u/d pulley did you get?

I have the DS Predator on two MOPARs and am very pleased with the results.

You can see some real time before and after dyno results on my truck by clicking on the link below my siggy pic and going to page 2.

The programming options are easy to do. It always helps to read the Predator write ups in the knowledge base before you attempt to load the tune. Also, the folks at DS will be glad to walk you through the process.

Now that I have a CMR custom tune on top of the canned tune on my SRT, it's become a beast!!!

My truck throttle response, HP, Torque and MPG all improved with the Predator installed.
