What is the Predator?  

The Predator for '99-03 7.3L Powerstroke F-Series (part no. U7170) is a state-of-the art, high performance tuning flash programmer in a sleek handheld design.

    • both standard and proprietary fault code text included
    • reset fault codes
    • live data monitoring
  • The flash tuner with a true graphical display that's 300% larger then the competition's puny text only display
  • The flash tuner running on a custom high performance, multi-threading KROS operating system
Dyno Tested Performance Tunes  

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, 2wd vs. 4wd, etc.
  • 40 RWHP and 100-ft/lb TQ - Tow Tune, made specifically for towing. DiabloSport recommended weight limitations based on manufacturer suggested limits for the vehicle.
  • 60 RWHP and 155-ft/lb TQ - Economy Performance Tune, designed for Economy and Performance, fuel economy depends solely on driving style, and will vary from vehicle to vehicle. DiabloSport recommended weight limitations of 8,000 Lbs.
  • 85 RWHP and 198-ft/lb TQ - Performance Tune, designed specifically for performance street driving. DiabloSport recommends this tune not be used for towing.
  • 100 RWHP and 215-ft/lb TQ - XPerformance Tune, designed specifically for opening a can of whoop-ass (pardon the expression). DiabloSport recommends this tune not be used for towing.

DiabloSport recommends the use of larger diameter performance exhaust components and exhaust temperature gauges with the use of any performance diesel tuning.

DiabloSport also recommends to install the transmission replacement PowerValve for improved shifting when using high performance tunes.
