hi. when you purchase the predator for the 05' gto, does it come with only 1 tune option? is this the optimum tune for both HP and MPG? or do you have a few tune options that they install in the device? also, is it a very easy and straight forward deal to plug it into the port and do the download? is it basically following the promts and instructions that they give you? thanks.

The increase in MPG is a byproduct of maximized engine efficiency, the improved timing curve and air/fuel ratio creates a more complete combustion, i.e. the engine extracts more power from each molecule of gasoline. Predator tunes re-map the:

* Fuel Curves
* Timing Curves
* Torque Management
* Extend Rev Limiters

see, that is the confusing part......... why have the predator if you just had it dyno tuned anyway? isn't that a waste of money? that seems like the predator is just used as a tool to store the new program. so basically, the optimum tune isn't from the predator? thanks.

The tune will be lost if you go to the dealer and they reflash the ecu. So if you have it in the predator, you can put it back and even modify that tune when you add more engine upgrades.

The predator comes with 3 tunes: Predator tune for HP & TQ, Diablo tune for economy & 91 octane tune to get better performance out of cheaper fuel. You can also purchase custom tunes from Diablosport or some racing sites. Some sites that sell predators will give you a free tune also. You will need a serial cable and 12V power supply to download from your pc.
