Exclamation Diablosport Predator Tuner__09 Challenger RT

Not sure if this has made its rounds through another thread yet, so I figured I'd spread the info since I got it. I spoke with a Tech from Diablosport a couple of days ago, and was told that the 09 Challenger R/T program would be available in February. The current Predator unit that's sold for the SRT and Charger lineup will stay the same, so I went ahead and bought one now. Also, Arrington Engines , has the Predator tuners on sale for $319 right now and a $100 discount on orders $500 or more. Seeing I was in the market for a CAI and the Predator, I made out with both for $540. Cheers, 1BADRThttp://www.challengertalk.com/forums/images/smilies/SM127.gif

No prob, the site doesn't say it, but the person I spoke with said the 100 bones off will last until Christmas.

Hope the tune gets release then. I've had my Predator sitting on the workbench for over 2 months now.

Yeah that's what he told me, two months...he said they had been working on it for a while and actually have a tune produced, but now are "fine tuning" it and working all the kinks out

Re: Diablosport Predator Tuner__09 Challenger RT

So if I buy a Predator now can I download the new programs onto it when it comes out in Feb? I'm not familiar with these devices. I whent to their site to order one but they dont have the 09 R/t listed since its not out yet. So should I wait till Feb then buy a tuner or buy one now if you can download the new programs.

Exactly, the part number for the Predator that is used on the Charger R/T, SRT, Magnum R/T, etc. is the same and will be the same for the Challenger R/T. You have to buy the wiring harness (most likely USB if your computer is newer than like 10 years old) too, and in February you just plug your Predator tuner into your computer, go to Diablsport's website and download the tune for your Challenger R/T.

Awesome. Can the factory detect that you have tuned it? For Warranty purposes can I set it back to factory settings and will the dealer know?

Re: Diablosport Predator Tuner__09 Challenger RT

Not exactly sure if they can detect it, but I know that the first time you plug it into your vehicle it downloads the stock setup for later use if need; so if you have to return the vehicle to stock and/or take it in for servicing you can return it to the original settings.

Here's a video of the upload process, granted it's on a Mustang, but the overall process is the same vehicle to vehicle...seems pretty simple. Man I can't wait to get home and install the tune!!!!
