Default Stage Kits

I know that Mopar no longer makes stage kits for the GT's. And I know that Nitro PT has linked me to where I can find a used Stage 1. But does anybody know of a place or site that you can order new Stage 1's despite Mopar discontinuing them? I'd buy the Diablo Intune, but I have the 41TE auto transmission and I hear stage 1's are better for the 41TE, whereas the Diablo is better for the getrag 5 spd. Any input would be great.

buy the Diablo. Stage will improve shift points. I just let mine shift itself in the autostick and it flies. I wouldn't trade mine for anything. Not to mention as your mods grow you can get custom tunes for it.

So the diablo helps no matter which tranny you have? If so, that's great news because I'd prefer that.

I get 18-20 lbs of boost on mine. trac off I spin the tires with the auto trans. if I'm doing 30 and punch it in second I spin. It's great. If your close you could try it.

The predator (which is what I have) has been discontinued but you can still get them used for around or under $200.

I doubt it, I live in Florida. And that's a big help to me man. I always assumed the Intune should work even on an auto, but people were giving me mixed messages. Much thanks man!

I considered the predator, but I can't find any used ones anywhere.

The Diablosport products can not change any of the Auto transmission perimeters

No mixed messages with me.....
You will require the Stage 1 with a auto stick PT to increase shift pressure in the transmission and improving shifts. If you want to tune many other cells in the ECU you will at least need a Diablosport product. You could just use the "intune" alone. but will not get improved shifting performance.

I do EFI/ECU Performance calibration and have looked into what is available for the PT Cruiser. The combination of the Sage 1 along with with a Diablosprot device are the best tuning aids available without going to a stand alone.
