    Just to make sure you know, the HP tuner doesn't have any preloaded tunes on it like Diablo tuners. You can hurt your engine changing your parameters. You also have to buy credits to write tunes to your car. New come with I think 8. Check out their web site. You can mode your car way more with HP but you kinda have to know what your doing. With the Diablo you can play around with their performance tunes without doing much damage. Hope this helps and is what you were asking about. I just bought a Trinnity and waiting for it to come in the mail.

    You could ask how many credit are on it, if its the Pro version, and how old it is (they've updated the cable a few times I believe)

    Make sure it's an updated version, or one that can be updated. There is a cutoff for updating that requires a new cable (basically buying the package again.) Could be why it's forsale...Can't update the older packages.
    I found this out when I updated mine to the pro version, I barely made the cutoff. Might want to give a shout to Hptuner and ask what that serial number cutoff is, I can't remember.
