I had to buy the computer interface kit (like 50 bucks) for the diablo to hook up to my computer at home in order for diablo to send me a cusom headers tune that they sent me via email. You have to send them a backup copy of your tune, then they modify it and send it back to you. Your Diablo will then read 93 octane, 91 octane, or Custom tune on the screen when it fires up. Load in the custom tune and let her eat.
How much of a difference do these tuners make if your car is stock?

Diablo tuning questions

My 06 came from a Florida estate sale, the owner had passed away
I found a Diablo tuner all boxed up in the trunk so i'm assuming its got a tune on it.
Also, there is a K&N cold air kit on it, the MAF sensor says "Granatelli Motor Sports" on it, is this a stock item?
Can i simply hook up the tuner to find out what if anything has been done?
or should i be looking for a good LS-2 shop?
Thanks for any help guys, very new to these great LS series motors!

Dont waste ur time and money on those. Go to a tuner and get a custom tune. You’ll spend a little bit more but have way better results. Also if your car is stock its better to throw a couple mods at it like intake and headers/exhaust to make the money spent on the tune worth it, And have a bigger jump in HP.

Also side note, this thread is 9 years old. You typically would want to start a new thread on ur subject than posting on a really old dead thread.
