there are a few good tuners, but I've found the diablointune to be on of the best, although it the only one I have used...I've just read about others. I'd say majority of the people have the intune, which to me says a lot

I wonder if someone with a high knowledge of these Diablo tuners would care to do an updated video using the newer Intune I2030...maybe just putting on the basic 87 tune and maybe AFM disable and something like torque management reduction. Then maybe a little how to on updating and backing up tunes.
Anybody?

I`m in for this as well especially the backing up original and new tunes to your computer so you have a back up file.

Well, I guess no one was game. That is OK.
I just dropped the 87 octane w/firm shifts and DOD/AFM delete tune on my truck. Not too difficult but I think Diablosport could do a better job with the menu system and documentation. Anyway, the only real issue I had was how to do the AFM disable. I went through the advanced options and it asked about TCM and shifting characteristics, but I could not get into the "Modify Parameters" sections. It was grayed out. A quick call to Customer service told me that I had to drop the 87 tune on first and then go back and I would find the "modify parameters" menu active. Which I did and it all worked out from there.
This I1000 How TO at least gave me a good idea what to expect with my I2030.
