Tuner

I have purchased the Prediator tuner from Diablo Sport and preparing to do my first tune on the Camaro. I've read through the instructions several times and just wanted member input on the tune. Is there anything I should be aware of?? My car is an L99 w/less than 2000 miles on it. Mods are ARH headers with the 3" exhaust back to the stock t/pipes and mufflers and Airaid CAI kit. Any information and help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

It does seem like it "can't possibly be that simple!" It is, actually.

Only advise I have for is to be light on the right foot. ....and enjoy the ride. If the tune makes changes like it did for the Charger then your in for a treat.

Just plug it in and follow the on screen display. It really is that easy.

*make sure you store your original first.

I would think the unit would do this automatically.

yes, the first time you go to install a tune, the predator will automatically create/save a backup of the original stock tune in it, so that you can restore it at any time.

after installing one of the diablo tunes, put on about 100 miles, then do some data logging and get your fueling adjusted correctly so that your average ltft's (long term fuel trims) are in the 0 to -2 range...

doing this will gain you quicker throttle response, faster acceleration, stronger/harder pull, and better mileage...

here's info on how to do a data log correctly, how to make the adjustment, etc etc:
