Everything went smooth. Adjusted tire size and put the 65hp tune on. Took her for a 25 mile drive....diffentally could feel the difference. Can't wait to see what mpg I'll get. DIC went up from 18.3 to 20.5.

I've put about 300 miles on my 06 lbz since putting the predator 65hp tune on. I'm impressed....should have done this sooner. Thanks for the hard work diablosport

Just an update, the 65hp tune is great. My mileage has increased by almost 2 mpg highway/city. Tansmission shifts have improved from sloppy to firm, wow what an improvement all the way around. I'll post some mpg numbers next week....

Try the 85 HP tune, or even the extreme, you may see even better mileage :)

Dachief I loaded the 120hp tune almost 1,000 miles ago. It's a little smokey when you get on it but seems to increase city/highway mpg a little.

Almost 2 years have gone by since I installed the predator tune. She still running good but have been thinking about about upgrading to the intune. Is it worth it or should I stay with the predator?

Thanks for the reply. Over the 2 years I have averaged 18.9 mpg( about 20,000 miles ).That is 50/50 city/highway. Not too bad for a 3/4 ton 4wd ccsb. Believe me the truck will haul ass. Great tuner.......wish you guys made cell phones I'd buy one in a second.
