so this morning, i loaded the 110 tune. right before work, went to my spot, did a wot blast. And after about 80 percent throttle I got some killer injector shake, backed off tried again, same thing.

My point though. Their were no codes with the 110 tune, even jumping around like it did. No codes on the tow tune, but the 85 tune starts throwing the 1211 almost instantly.

Use the DSDL to export the 110 tune, load the 85 tune and export it, then export the original backup and post them here. I will take a look.

Silly question, but how to I get the tune to the computer?

I'm assuming i need to buy a cable of some sort. It's a little frustrating. I've always used xcals in the past that come with a usb that plugs right into it.

the predator isn't making it easy to get the tune?

do i have to by the cable from diablo or is this something i can go to best buy or somewhere and get................................................

Just a USB to serial cable and a laptop works fine. Power the unit with the vehicle, use the DSDL software and export both the tunes.

uploaded stock and the 3 tunes that came on the predator. again, the 85 sets the 1211 instantly. 2 different times, it said a wastegate performance as well. not sure what that was.

is it possible to remove all shift pressure increase from all the tunes, so i don't have to worry about it.

lastly, the 110, i've tried some wots a couple times with it the last few days, in 2nd and 3rd gear, i don't get the injector shake that i get in first gear, but that last 10-15% throttle the engine sound is definately "louder" not sure if that's normal on the 110 tune or not or if it should be tweaked. didn't know if i should have a degree of wot timing pulled?? i don't know enough about these to know what i'm listening to, to be honest. maybe it's fine how it is? maybe a degree in 1st gear. who knows, lol.

again, codes only on the 85
