PMMAGIC Based on the information you've given me I will try to contact service at the dealer and discuss the matter. I appreciate your response.

I would appreciate any response concerning that or any other issues I should be aware of.
As long as they don't flash the computer or change it out you will be ok with your predator. If they do flash it you will need proof they flashed it and call Diablo they will talk you through resetting the predator to work with the new flash.

Engine Replacement

I recently encountered catastrophic engine damage as a result of a timing chain failure in my Challenger R/T 5.7L automatic. The car is now at the dealer awaiting the new engine. I had 30K on the original motor so needless to say I'm very pleased with the fact that I'm getting a new one with 0 miles on it. I had the 306 rear swapped out for a 373 with LSD and had put a 91 Octane CAI tune on the motor with my predator tuner. Does anyone know how that will work out with the new engine?

Well I was lucky then, when mine snapped I had no bent valves.
Or maybe I had a different motor in 1984, don't remember??
