Default Diablo Predator Tuner

I'm thinking about re-loading my C6 with the Diablo Predator Tune-up package..I'd like to know if anyone has done this to their Vette..I tried it with my Chevy Avalanche and ended up frying my onboard computer..Don't want to do it to my Vette..Thanks for any help..

I purchased a Predator and put the scan in,now my vehicle has dead spots (where there is no response for a sec ) and also there was supposed to be a way to override the torque management..if its there..i can't find a way to access it.I have written an email to Mike @ Predator and await his response to see what the problem is....my fingers are crossed..

I cant imagine what haoppened in the Avy unless there was a major drop in voltage, but there would be no reason not to use it in the Vette.

We see gains of about 15 rwhp on the C6 Vettes, while improving throttle response, shift feel, and drivability.

May want to make sure the tool is on the latest 9r07 revision.

I have never had a complaint of a dead spot in a Vette, thats a new one.

Again, I would check the revision and make sure it is up to date.

I dont recall any emails from you, hit me up at mlitsch@diablosport.com

Thanks
Mike

Just chiming in here. I have the Diablo "canned" tune in my 2000 C5 and I love it! I have LT headers so I get a check eng. light but I don't mind for now. Just haven't got around to sending Mike my tune via the DiabloSport forum so he can turn it off for me. Mike: if your listening, give me a little inspiration on that. I've been lazy! Thanks for a great product!
