Sorry, this item is out of stock

The Predator Tuner is a state of the art high performance handheld computer programmer. The programmer loads a tuning profile which advances the timing, optimizes air/fuel ratio, remaps the transmission shift points, and increases the top speed of the speed limiter. Tuning with the Predator Tuner is very simple. Just plug the data cable into your vehicle's diagnostic port, located under the dash and follow the prompts on the LCD display. Remove the unit when finished.

What are the advantages of the Predator Tuner?
The Predator Tuner was created with one goal in mind, POWER! 10-30% increase in horsepower and torque, depending on application. The Predator Tuner's additional power makes itself noticeable immediately with increases in power that start in the low RPMs and build into a frenzy at the high RPMs. Once the vehicle is reprogrammed, the Predator Tuner is removed from the data port. There are no tools required for installation. There is nothing connected to the vehicle that might come loose or fail.
A reprogrammed vehicle will notice significant improvements in drivability. The additional power and improved shift patterns created, will yield quicker acceleration, firmer shifting, better mileage, and improved towing characteristics. Whether in local traffic, out on the highway, the power increase in lower RPMs will yield better throttle response and help maintain speeds on inclines. The wider power band that the Predator Tuner creates will be noticeable in city driving, where speeds constantly change. The mid to upper power increase is extremely useful, on the highway, when passing slower vehicles.

Increased Fuel Mileage

The increase in MPG is a byproduct of maximized engine efficiency. The improved timing curve and air/fuel ratio creates a more complete combustion, i.e.: the engine extracts more power from each molecule of fuel. Fuel mileage increases of 1-4 mpg are typical.
300% larger screen than competition that can be read easily. Not black writing on gray background
Still useable even if the GM dealership reprograms your vehicle. No need to send the programmer back for updating.
