First let me say that, in general, I would prefer a dyno tune. Assuming you use a reputable tuner, a dyno tune will typically provide more HP and is really great \ necessary for highly modded cars (cams \ heads \ LTs \ etc).

That said, here is why I am considering the SLP DiabloSport II for '06:

  • I want to be able to return to a stock tune for warranty reasons.
  • I do not plan on extensive mods. JBA headers w/ catted mids, maybe a CAI.
  • I want torque management and CAGs off!!!

So... does this seem like right route considering my objectives? Is there anyone that thinks I should still go the dyno tune route?

Also... I've seen the Maryland Speed post about the SLP DiabloSport IIs for 2005-06 GTOs. Why is this not on the SLP site? :confused: Seems weird that SLP only lists the DiabloSport II for 2004 GTOs. Just a little weird \ concerning.

No tune. Stock on stock tires.

With the tune I can't get off the line at all now. The DR's will change that.

In the heat 90's + this summer, I was running 13.2 with 2.1 60 foots.

Last year in that kind of heat the best I could do was 13.4 with a 2.1, 60 foot.

By the fall I learned to drive the beast and the cooler weather (60's) helped too so I dropped my 60 foots to 1.9 or 2.0's and ran a bunch 13.0's and 12.9's.

I believe the biggest advantage to getting a dyno tune is that the IAT table can be trimmed back to take aways some of our lovely heatsoak issues.

Ahh yes.. The infamous heat soak issue. Hmmm... Is it possible to get a dyno tune loaded onto the DiabloSport II? Is that just crazy talk? :drink:

Why not get HP tuner, it's 510 shipped, you can do prety much anything with it, AND you can dowload tunes from other guys that post them to try them out for your car, or use them as a base, or just compare yours to theres to fine tune yours etc etc..

Does this product do a good job of removing or reducing torque management on a A4 ? I've heard conflicting information.

Anyone that owns this product could shed some light on this subject for me,
especially the A4 guys

Thanks

Does anybody know if there is someone who can tune the GTO based on mods added and then email it to you? Ive had my GTO dyno'd and loaded the Diablo sport perfomance tune. Did some minor tweeking w/ timing and fuel. But im looking fo something alittle more dialed in to my needs. Any input would be great.

Runnin With the Devil (RWTD), sponsor on the left. But proceed with caution. Lots of people complain about them not getting to things very quickly. If you use them, use the phone for contact with them. They don't respond to emails very well.
