Default Scam check - Diablo Sport Predator

Im looking to pick up a Diablo predator tuner off of craigslist and wanted to know from the guys who have them how I can spot check and make sure the guy has his stock tune restored to his truck before I buy. I would think it should be apparent when i plug it in if it has not been restored or not, but ive never used a handheld before so I don't want to get burned. Thanks for your help in advance.

I'm a little uneducated in this topic, but I see this being the best time as any to ask...is there some sort of fail safe in place on the tuners that prevents you from using them from truck to truck? Like i said I dont know much about the tuners.

To check that it hasn't been used(currently installed in another truck) or erased from having a dealership re-flash the computer while having the predator installed you need to plug it into your truck and enter the tune mode. If it says anything other then "stock tune" or "OEM tune" then stay away. It will list the last tune installed onto a vehicle, so if it says something like "93 octane tune" or "performance tune", that means that whoever is trying to sell it to you still has it installed on there truck and it will not work on yours. There maybe something else that I'm missing so ill talk to the guys at Mopac tomorrow and let you know for sure
