Diablo ?

New to the whole tuner download thing, used to my 12v but my girlfriend got a duramax and of course I got her a diablo chip and I was wondering how you got custom or even different tunes as it is has a pc connection.

Just new to me wondering how it all works

Thanks Bryan

You can update it via the internet, but there is no custom files available for it. What year truck or what is the part number of the Diablo you got? I'll see if you have the latest updates.

the chip model is 7180 for a 03 LB7

So can I buy the 160 230 HP tunes or am I just limited to the tunes it came with?

There is no 160 or higher tune from Diablo. The 120 is the largest you can get with that tuner. Thats plenty for a stock trans as it is.

Gotcha, so if you can't get other tunes for it why can you get the software and hardware to download it?

I was actually wondering about a custom low boost fueling setting.

Thats for updating them as they revise the tunes/software. Typically, they are only working on the LBZ stuff. The LB7/LLY stuff has not been updated for a couple years.

So no one (Diablo or anybody) else makes the custom tunes or they just quit making them for the older motors, cause the software I gotfor it is specificly for downloading custom tunes or at least thats what the program shows, also storing extra programs on the PC.

Don't mean to aggervate just tryin to understand

Lots of HOT tunes for the LB7. Diablo just never went to the big and extreme stuff. Most of there stuff is on the conservative side.

PPE makes a wicked tune that with proper supporting mods, will achieve nearly 500 rwhp on the dyno
