[QUOTE='91 Formula]Alright someone had to ask. :)[/QUOTE]

Let's see...The GTO will be out in what, probably January in good quantity, so maybe February / March of next year? How long did it take for the 04 GTO version to come out? Probably not as long since it's a current engine, not a new one.

Hehe considering it's now a 1 meg file as opposed to the old 512 I'd say LS2 PCM tuning development may take awhile (maybe even a year or more).

I doubt it many aftermarket parts companies get info on the cars before they even come out to the public. With the 05 Corvette already up and coming i see the LS2 Predator following the GTO close behind 3-6 months. Its really all up to DiabloSport who will tell us when its ready to buy. Gotta test and tune and make sure its right before pumping out a set tune.
The 05 Mustang has a big problem with its 05 Throttle-by-wire setup. All of the aftermarket companies are scratching their head because no one has figured out the coding of the system. Until its broken they can't make a tuning device.

Except Mustangs are already in the hands of Steeda, Rousch(sp?), and Saleen and I believe ford gave them all the codes needed.

I wouldn't expect to see the Predator available for at least 6-8 months after cars hit the dealer's lots. The '04 Predator was just relased a few months ago. That was for a motor that had been around for awhile. The new one will probably take longer.

That's because that's the only way Ford can sell them :gr_jest:

Yes, aftermarket companies do get information vehicles prior to release, however PCM calibrations are not included in that information. In fact calibrations are NEVER actually released to ANYONE.. they "leak" out (IE someone pays off a calibrations engineer or an engineer moonlights over at hypertech for example) The new 1Meg files are quite a pain in the ass to deal with so I suspect tuning will take quite a awhile to be developed since it uses relatively new hardware, a new seed/key and new calibrations layouts, not common to other platforms.

Magnus, Any update on availability of the HP Tuner suite for the 05 GTO?

Anyone have any insight into the Predator for our 05's? Thanks in advance....

Cheers,
Mark
