Default Diablo Sport Predator for 07 Ram Hemi

I just purchased a Predator for my 07 Ram Hemi and i was hoping someone can answer a few of my questions. I noticed alot of people talk about getting custom tunes from Diablo or from CMR. Do you usually have to pay for a custom tune or how does that work?

Also, if that was the case, will they make a tune for my truck with my minor mods, K&N CAI & Cat-Back Exhaust with 87 (89 or 91) octane?

Custom tuning is not neccesary until you have done more than the "Big Three" ie: CAI, Exhaust, Programmer. Like Long Tube Headers, Throttle Body, Cam, Heads, Supercharger, Turbo, any one of these would most likely either require or benifit from a custom tune.

HEMIFEVERTUNING.com does great tunes.

I don't have a CMR tune on the Ram but I do on my SRT. Other than the intake and exhaust, the SRT does not have any major mods but the CMR results were impressive!

You have options...

1. Go to a DiabloSport authorized tuner. Authorized shops will be listed on their website by zip code. They will spend between 1.5 to 2.5 hours on your vehicle and it will cost you anywhere between $350 to $500 for the tune. You do need a Predator or Trinity programmer.

2. You can contact tuners by email (Bob@svs.com, Johan @ DS, etc...) and they will have you log some engine operating parameters. Then you email them those logs + a copy of your stock tune + a copy of the "Last Tune Written" which is the tune, with the adjustments you have made, you have installed on your vehicle.

To be able to pursue option 2 you will need to go to DS's website and download the DS Downloader and the Viewer.

I have no idea what a tune by email costs.
