Thanks for posting

I was going to pose the same question.
I'm buying a Predator myself and would like to know.

Thanks

Time to play... :quoties: WHICH DEALER IS LYING !?!? :quoties:

I asked my dealer if there was a calibration update to the code on my GTO's computer, and was told there is no update available for my '05 GTO. I do not know if this is based on the date of manufacture or not.

Nonetheless, Diablo told me there are NO GTO updates in R99. They only added support to V8-equipped Grand Prixs and Montes....

I have NO IDEA if my dealer is lying or yours is.

Maybe Frank or Mike (or other **trustworthy** Pontiac dealer on this site) can comment....

I got my computer updated by the dealer back when I upgraded from R93 when it was first required to get the new firmware. I went to my dealer for other minor fixes and asked if they would update the computer. They checked and said that they would and that I should expect a different shifting in the A4 tranny and also about 1 mpg better gas mileage. I could tell the difference in the shifting when they did the update.

if you go diablosports website the newest version for u7191 is r99 and they say you have to have the update for your computer done so this version will work.

I never upgraded my computer and the predator is working fine with r99, it worked with all the other revisions also.Try the newest revision if it doesn't work go back to the old one.
