    Talking Diablosport Predator Tune

    I just got my Diablo predator today and installed a performance tune that a guy on another forum ( I won't name names) gave me. This guy has developed and worked on NASCAR Busch Series engines. He took six months of playing around with the Predator to get this tune:

    WOT Fuel Mixture
    2K-4K +8% Rich
    4K-7K +5% Rich


    WOT Spark Advance
    2K-4K +2% Advance in Winter (Use 1% in Summer)
    4K-7K +6% Timing


    Idle
    Drive:w/o AC +50
    Drive: w/AC =50
    Park/Neutral: w/AC +100
    Park/Neutral: w/o AC +100


    Fan On/Off Temps for 160/180 Thermostat
    Fan 1 OFF 191.x
    Fan 1 ON 201.x
    Fan 2 OFF 202.x
    Fan 2 ON 212.x


    Fuel Injector Slope
    minus(-) 7


    ALL Torque Settings Management
    OFF


    COT Temperature
    585*C


    *****This is all you need for an M6 (set rev settings to your comfort level)*


    For A4 GTO's these are the shift settings:

    Shift Time
    1-2 -6%
    2-3 -8%
    3-4 -10%


    WOT Up Shift MPH
    1-2 38MPH
    2-3 75MPH
    3-4 123MPH


    WOT Down Shift MPH
    1-2 33MPH
    2-3 74MPH
    3-4 118MPH


    WOT Up Shift RPM
    1-2 5900
    2-3 5900
    3-4 5900


    WOT Shift Pressure
    1-2 +4% Firm
    2-3 +6% Firm
    3-4 +8% Firm


    PART Throttle Shift Pressure
    1-2 +6% Firm
    2-3 +8% Firm
    3-4 +10% Firm



    Just wanted to share this with all you Predator program owners. This is one BAD ASS tune. I haven't had it tested, so I cannot make definitive statements about HP and Torque, but it is a vast improvement from the stock settings. I only have a K&N CAI on my GTO along with my tune and the GOAT is now officially One Bad GOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My stock exhaust has a much more muscular tone and the LS1 is alive!!!!!!!!!! She really SHITS AND GETS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me know what ya'll think of the tune and post your replies. Good Luck!!

    Exclamation LS1 Tune Only!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh....I forgot to mention this, but this tune is for the LS1 04 GTO. I guess you could try it on an Ls2, but I don't think it will work because the stock tuning is different between an LS1 and LS2. Just wanted to mention that so I don't get replies about the tune sucking because it was used on an LS2 and not LS1 GOAT. Thanks!!!!!!

    Hell Yea!!!!! I've been out all day(well since I got off work) laying patches of rubber all over town!!! I'm really impressed with the tune. The Guy I got it from really knows cars and engines and plus he took a lot of time in getting this tune. I was tempted to not buy the Predator, but when I talked to him he made it seem worth it and let me tell you it is truly worth the bills I spent on it.

    You might not have the new software. My Predator is brand spankin' new and has all the most recent software on it. If you have the adapter to connect your Predator to your computer I would go to diablosport.com and download the new software. I was on the website on Tuesday and they do have new updates for those of you who don't have the latest Predator.

    Exclamation Update for Predator must go back to Diablosport

    Just went to the website and it does say that the GM Predator for 2004-2005 does not accept remote upgrades, but that future models may have this ability. There is a revision for the 04 GTO Predator, but I guess you would have to send it back to them to get the upgrade. I would call them and see if that is the case and look for a dealer near you that may be able to do this on premises. I don't know if they do that, but it is worth checking into. Just an FYI.

    This is a new tune altogether. Just go into modify parameters and select performance tune and adjust the settings accordingly.

    No i don't have the SLP Predator. Maybe that is why. I ordered mine from pfyc.com. I think SLP only puts thier tunes on it and don't allow for all the parameters to be adjusted. I could be wrong though. I would recomend contacting SLP to find out why you cannot modify all parameters.

    Yea that is probably a good idea to reset stock settings and then modify parameters under the performance setting under modify parameters. As for this tune compared to the Predator performance tune, I would say screw the Predator performance tune and use this. The LS1 just seems to really come alive with this tune. GOT1GOAT has also been using this tune and likes it as well. This tune came from a guy who developed NASCAR Busch series engines. He played with the Predator for 6 months using the data log to put together the best tune for the LS1 GOAT. I think I would go with this tune just because this guy developed these engines for 20 years and those engines are all about being the baddest on the planet. Just my 2 cents homie!!! Enjoy the Tune!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
