I deleted the last thread because I finally got it to work. My trunk lid was ajar, I don't know why that would matter, but...

Anyroad, just got back from my test 'blast.' Definately more 'punch,' it's hard to quantify the HP and torque gains without a dyno, but my seat of the pants dyno says "YEAH." If its between 10 and 20 HP as the advert says then $20-$30 bucks a pony ain't bad.

Kudos to Diablo Sports for this product!

Thanks again to all the others that posted on the previous thread to help me out with the install. :D :D :D

The instructions in the manual are dumb... don't worry about it, the predator itself tells you what to do at that point. In fact the predator tells you what to do through the whole process, just follow the on screen prompts.

But bottom line... it basically it tells you when to turn the key to ON, counts off seconds, then tells you to turn the key OFF and counts again.

That admission had me freaked too... but simple once you go through it.

I have been told the mileage figures computed by the Driver info center displayed will not match with the actual fuel mileage being experienced.That is ,if you do a manual check of mileage it will not compare favorably

If I understand your note ,just plug the unit in and it will tell me to turn the key on? Is that correct?

I actually took those comments to mean that was the case stock, and that actual was actually better than the DIC reported. In one instance, the car said it used more gas than the tank holds.

I do not think Predator Tune effects reporting one way or the other though. I do know I am getting better gas milage since the tune though. But a lot of factors play into that, the tune as well as my car getting older be the day (ie, engine breakin)

Oh it is well worth it........Personally I think this is the best mod you can do for $500 or less.

:eek: NOTHING else on in car, not even trunk light. No radio, no nothing.
Plug in, turn on. Leave on and do your thing. Watch the display. It will prompt you. when done, and the new tune has loaded 100% and it tells you, turn off and unplug. Turn on, and go test.

Does anyone who has the predator also have EfiLive or Autotap. It would be nice to see the changes made to the stock tables.

I have an AutoTap. Was going to see how the 2 worked together, mine is due in July 7th. Kinda hoping I can sell the AutoTap with my GrandPrix if the Pred. can do everything I need it to.

I installed my Predator this weekend and it is amazing how big difference it makes. It will now break the tires loose going into 2nd and 3rd. I read where others got this type of performance out of the Perdator but I figured they may have been overstating the facts a little. Best Mod I have ever made

Just be careful flooring it through a turn at low speed. That 1-2 shift can be a bit of a doozy. (Personal experience, lol).

I got my mine a few weeks ago and all I can say is wow :burnout: A GREAT improvement over stock. Feels stronger and crisper shifts. Best mod I ever purchased under $500.
