which is better???

Post by speed127 » Tue Jul 17, 2012 11:39 pm

looking at getting a diablo something for the car anf I'm wondering the differences between the Predator and the new Intune. Heard alot of negative about the Intune but it is the future.... also the Predator is alot cheaper. Thoughts?

I may be wrong, but i don't think the DS systems work on the 2.0l

The DS can work on a 2.0L engine but you need the srt-4 ecu, engine bay harness, and a few extra things. Talk to nighthawk (matt) and he will help you. He worked on my 2.0 turboed and I made 325whp on my 2.0L. Pulls like a champ!!

I'd get the predator. It's proven.

i would go with the predator too. Depending what you are going to do with it. If you just want to throw on the 93 octane tune and forget about it the predator is the better bet. Thats because you can buy one cheaper (~$200 or less). I just threw my custom tune on and now its sitting in the passengers seat.

I would only get the intune if A) i couldnt find a unmarried predator or B) I had the money to spend on the "new" version and had to have the new shiny toy.

A fully custom tune can be done by a cmr tuner who bought the software to do it. Costs thousands of dollars. You can also do some basic changes with the predator.

What is your goal? Maybe it would give us a better idea what you are looking for.

Matt Cresto/Nitehawk bought the tuner software so he can dyno tune you at his shop.

He's in west PA, I was mistaken I thought you were from there. Shoot him a PM anyway and pick his brain a little.
