Installed the predator yesterday with 91 cai, nice improvement but tried to use quick adjust parameters for esp, tcm, shiftpoints, shift firmness and they were not available. called Diablo and they said these were not supported on a 09 R/T. told me to check every month for an update.
like getting a great toy for Christmas but no batteries!
just have to sit on it for a while.:(..:bigthumb::bigthumb::bigthumb:

see last post for my happy news:guiness:

Yes the tunes work but the special "Quick Adjust parameters" do not support the 09 R/T.

I adjusted the transmission shift firmness on my 09 R/T (which I don't have anymore). I don't know if I accessed it via Quick adjust or not... I do know I tried it on my 2010 R/T classic, I think through Quick adjust and it said it wasn't supported. I thought it odd, but haven't looked into it any further yet.

Yah I"ve known about that for a year and have been trying to let people know but I keep getting my head shoved under water by the supporters.

Same old song and dance about keep checking for updates. When I discovered it I think it was software 17 now their at somethng like software 27 :dunno:

Question - does a Trinity allow those parameters to be adjusted on a 2009? I thought the 2010 year had more issues than the 2009s because of a re-designed ECU- we didn't get the skip shift feature added until a few months ago

Why do they not tell you upfront so the frustration factor is not there. i still would have invested in the predator but would not have been PO'd.
i would like a better answer from Diablo than check monthly, are they working on it or not? 1 month 3months 6months or never!

I sure know what your talking about... I bought a Diablo Predator at the '08 SEMA show for my '09 R/T after the sales guy told me all the fantastic things it did... Forgot to tell me the important part: The tune wasn't available yet but they were working on it. Had to wait almost 6 months to get something usable in my car, and then the first few versions sucked.

Had practically the same issue with my Shelby. Tune didn't work right (throttle hung when coming to a stop) that took a 2nd party tuner to finally figure out. When they finally do get it, it's great, it just takes awhile. I'd still buy from them again.

if you look closly at the grid they provide online you will see they kind of did tell you up front.

you look at the grid! 09 is predator 7135.
no disclaimers!
i would like Diablo to tell me and the other09 R/T owners when they expect to do the update.

Diablomike are you able to shed some light on this. please PM me.

I just tried it on my 2010 R/T (auto). You are correct, I could not adjust it through "quick adjust". However, I was able to adjust the transmission shifting firmness through the modify tune menu. You can do this even if the tune is already loaded in the PCM.

Plug in pred,
select Diablo tunes,
select the tune that is currently loaded (in my case, 93 CAI),
select modify tune,
then, I think, adjust parameters,
then transmission,
and finally transmission shift firmness

Once you increase shift firmness, it will change it in the PCM, you don't have to reload the whole tune again.

Shift point adjustment is not supported for 09 and above 5.7's... just shift firmness. Not sure about the other items you asked about.

Oh, and Im on v.23

I did it this same way on my 09 R/T auto last year.

Hope it helps

Mike
