Default DiabloSport Tuner

I'v heard good thngs about diablosport for mustangs, but the only thing they make for my mustang ('94 GT) is the Diablosport Deltachip. It allows 2 performance calibrations, and has the option of turning it off witha switch to go back to the stock calibration. Does anyone have any expierience with this tuner? Postitive/Negative? Either way, Let me know.

It does look really cool, but I dont know if it'd be worth it. It depends on how much it is and i couldnt find a price either.

Real world tune is the only way to optimize a modified engine. There are far too many varialbles that need to be seen in person to ensure the tune is safe and optimal. If this item costs any more than 200 then skip it and look directly at an SCT tune session. My SCT chip hosts 4 programs, each has been created attain a different goal, and each fine tuned to maximize the real world conditions occuring under the hood. Remember in the real world most mafs don't read the same...injectors can be clogged...timing marks on balancers can be off, etc...if you run off a premade program based on 'should be' then you're possibly doing more harm than good...or just plain missing out.

How much does one of those cost Dman? That definetly sounds like a better route. Isn't an SCT tuner like the flash tuners that they sell on americanmuscle.com and such? I didn't think they made one of those for my Sn95 tho....

I have the Predator for my 01 F150. The flash tuners only work with newer OBD-II vehicles. You must install a piggyback chip ib older cars.
The Predator makes a noticable difference in my 5.4L, not sure how the chips work. If you get with them they can probably get you a tune matched pretty close for your modifications.
