i was gun ho on getting the diablo so i hurried up and sold my superchips to not lose any money on it. witch i dont regret. then over x-mas break installed a fastman tb, 6.1 cam, and lt headers. now im perfectly fine with how my truck performs now, for what it is. so im looking to get a tune of some sort and be done with my truck and start putting money away for the future or next toy i want. when i had my superchips before the recent mods i was fine with how it performed. so i would imagine id feal the same about it now?

should i really wait for the diablo instead of picking up a cheap used superchips again? would the custom tuning really make that much difference with the mods i have witch are pretty mild.

i really want better shifts witch superchips will do. having a 04 i dont think diablo has trans support yet.

thanks

You should think of what you will be happy with from now on till you sell your truck (if you did). Cause if you do get the superchips are you gonna want a tune later in a year or so, cause if you do then the diablo it is the way to go, or if in a year or so you want bigger cam, maybe a sidewinder or a 260, then diablo is a way to go. If you don't want to buy anymore performance mods then superchips is the way to go. BUT diablo resell value is higher also.

I vote to buy what will suit your needs for the entire time you own the truck.

Go with SCT!!!! ;)

if you get a sc, get a psc1 (or smt)...it really woke up my truck with the 6.1 cam, sc and psc combo...

For lightly modded trucks Superchips works just fine and the TCM control functions properly. Also, they'll be a few more options here soon.


If you're going custom tuning, go with SCT. It works and hemifever is a proven custom tuner.

Superchips has great canned tunes. And SCT is great for custom tunes. Unfortunately, neither of those allows you to run a canned tune while you finish your mods and then upgrade to a custom tune. Diablo definately has a place in the market, as does it's competitors.

I offer a CAN tune with SCT that will blow SC and Diablo's can tunes out of the water. :)

If you really want an SCT or Diablo.

Diablo you can do your own Data loggin and you have tha ability to see it on your laptop, and you can make your own adjustments, like Timing, wot Fuel, Rev limit, idle speed and a few other things. I have also yet to hear that Diablo has melted any pistons or blown up any engines.

SCT has the ability to do those things to but you can't adjust them your self. SCT has a few smoked pistons and blown engines.

I'm not saying that Diablo in the wrong hands can't do damage, it just hasn't yet and it seems to be a better product by and large.....

I might get slammed for saying so... But I'm used to getting slammed by now... :D

I let my dad barrow my superchips for 2 weeks. Just to let him decided if he wanted his own...That was the worst 2 weeks of my life. you don't realize it until its gone, that for sure!

if i knew for sure superchips would take away some of the surging when coasting i think i would be happy with it.
