Install all the drivers for the usb cable and have downloaded DSdownloader. Is a tune on the truck currently? If so connect the predator to the pc and open dsdownloader, it should find the tool then send you to a screen that says "get tune from tool", "sent tune to tool" etc. Hit get tune from tool it will say it is going to get the original backup off the tool, say yes and let it download. Then take that and send me it in an email.

Its alittle different then your typical tune found on the tool, timing and fuel are changed a good deal from what is found on the tool, should also help with the laggy pedal feel a bit. When you load it to the tool, it will ask you for an original backup, select diablo.frg as your tune and your original backup.frg as your original file. I did include the tire size and gear ratio into the tune.
