Any experts out there tell me if a diablo 2 hand held will yield you the same results as paying someone 500.00 to tune your cars computer? It seems to me if the results are within 2 or 3 horsepower then why not buy the diablo so you don't have to keep paying when you do other mods. Anybody got first hand expereience at this?

A tune is only as good as the TUNER (person).
The advantage of a Diablo over a dyno tune is that when you change mods, you can keep tuning without paying extra $$. Plus, you don't need a laptop.
For more advanced tuning use something like HPtuners. Same price as Diablo (roughly), WAY more capability.
In order to accurately tune a car, you'll need HPtuners ($500-650) AND a wideband (like LC-1 for $200).
If you plan on tuning your own car, make sure you're willing to spend at least 40 hours reading and 20 hours tuning AT A MINIMUM.
