IMPORTANT
Please read through the entire manual before installing a tune in your
vehicle. Failure to follow instructions can result in a damaged or disabled
PCM (Powertrain Control Module).
User must ensure that the factory “stock” tune is in the vehicle’s PCM before
installing the DiabloSport tune. GM dealer re-flashes are considered stock
factory tunes.
Serious engine damage will occur if the Predator tune is installed over a
non-factory/aftermarket performance tune. Predator tunes cannot be used
in conjunction with other tuning devices such as chips or plug-in modules of
any kind.
Do not perform any operations on Predator (expect live data diagnostics)
while vehicle is running. The vehicle must be parked, and the engine OFF.

Preparing Vehicle for DiabloSport Performance Tune Installation
OBD-II Diagnostic port locations
• Apply parking brake to de-activate daytime running lights.
• Always have all the doors closed while installing the DiabloSport Performance tune, and keep them closed until the process is complete.
• Do not activate any electrical accessories while installing the DiabloSport Performance tune. Ensure that there are no electronic devices wired or plugged into the vehicle that can cause a substantial voltage drop when activated during installation of the DiabloSport Performance tune. Please contact DiabloSport dealer if uncertain about devices that are on your vehicle.
• Certain cellular phones or radio equipment may also cause
interference. Please remove or turn such devices off.
• Do not try to install tune in a vehicle with low battery voltage. Charge your battery if necessary.
• Unless instructed, never turn the ignition key OFF while
the Predator is plugged in diagnostic port.
• Do not unplug the Predator while it is installing the DiabloSport performance tune.

Vehicles equipped with the GM OnStar system
IMPORTANT!
Vehicles equipped with
the GM OnStar system
Due to the fact that the GM OnStar system sends transmissions
periodically to the vehicle, we suggest that the system be temporarily disabled during the installation
and modification process.
If the OnStar system is not disabled during install or modification
and the system should receive a transmission in the middle of tune
install or backup, the tool will be interrupted and the process will
have to be started over again.
To avoid this problem it is recommended that the OnStar system be
disabled during tune install, backup and modification.
To disable the OnStar system, please refer to your owner’s manual
and locate the fuse(s) associated with OnStar. The OnStar system is
disabled when the OnStar light is not illuminated.
On some vehicles it is necessary to remove more than one fuse;
this will be indicated by the OnStar light remaining illuminated after
removal of the fuse from the engine compartment fuse panel.
Fuse Removal For GM Vehicles - Step1

Locate the fuse panel in the engine compartment or in vehicle
interior. Carefully remove cover and locate the RADIO, RADIO

Injector Slope: Determines the injector size and is used when correcting long term
fuel trims. Injector change: To properly set up injector size, you have to multiply the (current
slope x injector % change). Example: changing #24 to #30 (30-24)/24*100=
25. Multiplying the entire slope by 25% will get you in range. Determining long term fuel trims: Long term fuel trims are an accumulated value
of fuel added or subtracted during closed loop operation. These values should be
in the 0 to -2 range.To verify and tune for long term fuel trims, drive the vehicle for
30min or until warmed up, and monitor long term fuel trims. Get an average value.
The easiest way to accomplish this is to get on the highway, enable cruise control
and drive at 55mph while monitoring the data. Ideal values should be in the 0 to -2
range.
Now, once you get the average long term fuel trim value:
Positive long term fuel trims: For a positive value, subtract the value in percent in the
Predator injector slope; it is also recommended to lean both fuel tables by the same
percentage. Negative long term fuel trims: For a negative value, add the value in percent in the
Predator injector slope; it is also recommended to richen both fuel tables by that
same percentage.
Once adjustments are made and the tune is installed, take the vehicle out and verify
the long term fuel trims as previously described. Adjust again if necessary.
%Torque Reduction vs RPM: This is Torque reduction as a function of RPM. Turning it off in
conjunction with TM “abuse mode” time limit and upshift torque reduction will eliminate
torque management. However we have noticed that the shift feel when disabling the upshift
torque reduction in trucks and SUV’s is reduced. Therefore, we recommend leaving it ON for
trucks and SUV’s.
Torque Management
The following parameters are tables that dictate the misfire test. You have to turn ALL off in
order to completely disable the false P0300.
Misfire Low Rev
Misfire Low Cyl.
Misfire idle Cyl.
EGR
The EGR group contains “P” code disable for EGR related codes.
O2 sensor
The O2 sensor group contains “P” code disable for rear O2 sensor related codes.
PLEASE NOTE: Disabling torque management will put greater stress on your drive
line.
TM Abuse Mode time limit: This is the time in “abuse mode” as related to the function of temperature. Turning it off in conjunction with Upshift Torque reduction and
% Torque Reduction vs RPM will eliminate torque management. However, we have
noticed that the shift feel when disabling the upshift torque reduction in trucks and
SUV’s is reduced. Therefore we recommend leaving it ON for trucks and SUV’s.
Upshift Torque reduction: This is torque reduction control for each individual gear. Turning it
off in conjunction with TM “abuse mode” time limit and %Torque Reduction vs RPM will eliminate torque management. However, we have noticed that the shift feel when disabling the
upshift torque reduction in trucks and SUV’s s reduced. Therefore, we recommend leaving it
ON for trucks and SUV’s.
COT: This is Catalytic over tempeture protection. This parameter is used to cool down the
catalytic converters by adding fuel. This should only be disabled when cats are removed.
COT enable temp: This is the temperature to enable the COT process. Set this high 1200 to
disable it.

Troubleshooting
1.My Predator will not power up when I plug it into the OBDII port. Why?
A: Make sure that the cigarette lighter fuse in your vehicle is functional. You may also want to try plugging the Predator into any other
vehicle with an OBDII port to see if it powers up. If it does not, please return to point of purchase for a warranty exchange.
2.My Predator lights up, but nothing happens.
A :Please return your Predator to point of purchase for warranty exchange.
3. My Predator is flashing “Script error: Interpreter stopped.”
A: Verify that you have done the following:
-Pulled the proper fuses from the fuse panel
-Disabled any aftermarket electronics in the vehicle such as alarm systems, stereos, CD players etc.
