Default Diablosport predator tuner

Have a Diablosport predator tuner for sale. Used it on my 2005 GT. Gave a nice boost in performance. It has all of the latest updates and I just returned my car back to stock so the tuner is unlocked. Model number is U7134. $150 + shipping and PayPal fees.

Can you use it with the stage 1 ecu?
If so what kind of power would it add to it?

Since this Predator is already sold, I will weigh in.

Using the 93 Octane tune for the PT GT that the DS tuners come with, it's about the same as having a Stage 1 PCM except the DS tuners doesn't do anything for the transmission. I've done both and see no advantage of the 93 Octane tune over the Stage 1. The advantage of the DS tuner is that it's easier and faster to load the tune. There's also a few other neat little things the DS tuners can do, especially the later models including data logging and some other cool tricks.

The real purpose of any DS tuner is as a custom tune loading device. Tuning services can spend a few thousand dollars and get the REAL tuning software and then create custom tunes that customers can easily load into their cars using the handheld DS tuners. For someone wanting to custom tune themselves, this is not the type of device you likely need.

If you have an old enough Predator with an old enough CROM (operating system) that hasn't been updated, you can also disable the EGR and downstream O2 sensor on some cars. I believe these features were eliminated in 2009 due to changes in emissions laws.

Here's a video I made loading a tune in my Charger Daytona using a pre-2009 DS Predator. I run a few diagnostics first to assure communication so it takes about twice as long as it normally would.
