A quote from Diablo: "works with the lastest flash only." That's all I have from them.

Question

Questions, questions, questions

So are you saying this is perfectly safe on a 2004 6.0L PSD with the latest flash or at least I can reinstall the factory flash if something does go wrong?

I've owned my truck for a month and have approximately 1800 miles on the engine -- should I wait a little longer before adjusting the horsepower?

I'm new to this diesel game but I'm itching for a new toy to increase performance. What else do you recommend having in place when using the Predator?

Hire a full time staff, put in thousands of hours over several years building and promoting a site, fork out a ton of money each month maintaining it and you can advertise "your crap" on it.

Gauges & Exaust?

With this new Predator do you need gauges and exaust or will it work (stock) safely??

Exhaust will help keep you EGT a little lower, but you'll never know unless you install the gauges. I'd recommend gauges as the first step in everyone's mod process. However, technically speaking, gauges have no effect on performance or your mods- they just let you know what effect the mods are having on the system. I'm installing gauges now, will monitor and record performance and parameters as stock, then will have a baseline as I do modifications. When done, Iíll have performance and parameter changes for each mod. If something goes wrong, Iíll know where to look to get back to where I need to be. Can you tell I do flight testing?

The tow program will not require a larger exhaust. However, gauges are always a good idea, even with stock trucks.

GoEIB1,
That a good question. Also, it says I can get my stock tune back. Is that the flash I started with. I would love to get the MPG back I can deal with the hard start up.
