I hadn't heard of them before that article. There is a really good thread over on the 6.0 forum regarding that article. Most over there called "BS" on the numbers and backed up their arguments pretty well. I think even Diane from DPTuner entered the discussion as well.

Granatelli makes the Diablo Sport Flash Tuner. I've been running of their programs for over a year now, it offers a Towing, 60Hp, 85 Hp, 100 Hp, and an Altitude tune. I've only had a problem with the 100 HP pgm my truck seems to bog down on that setting. The 85 HP pgm is what I use most and can spin all 4 tires in 4WD. I dig go from 13 to 15 mpg on every tank with the 85 HP tune.

Welcome to FTE wenzomatic.

Granatelli motorsports does not "make" the Diablo tuner. Diablo does. GMS resells it with their name on it.

cookie88,

The Diablo Predator is NOT sold by Granatelli (it was a long time ago), there was a lawsuit between them and Diablo (the manufacturers of the Predator programmer) a while back and Granatelli will not be selling anything made by Diablo!

Thanks for clearing that up Mark. I hadn't looked on their site in a while.

Are you saying GMS is producing their own tuner and programmers now, or just that it's not Diablosport?

I must have been fooled by the large Granatelli and the very small Diablo print on the front of the programer. Thanks for clearing up my confusion.

I'm trying to find it. I didn't post so I'm not subscribed to the thread. I'll let you know if I find it.
