The Predator was created with one thing in mind, POWER!
A Predator equipped vehicle will notice significant improvements in
drivability. The additional power and improved shift patterns created by
the Predator tune will yield quicker acceleration, firmer shifts, better
mileage and improved towing characteristics, whether it is in town or out
on the highway towing an 8,000 lbs trailer.
The power increase in the lower RPMs will yield a better throttle
response; help maintain speeds on inclines and towing. The wider power
band that the Predator creates will be particularly noticeable in city
driving, where speeds constantly change. The mid-to-upper power increase
is extremely useful on the highway when passing slower vehicles and to
quickly maneuver out of emergency situations.
Predator contains four tunes to choose from:
- Stock Tune: with adjustable speed limiters. Speed limiter to
approximately 120 MPH varies based on vehicle set-up weight, tire size,
