Diablo Predator vs. SCT X3

For those of you that use one of these two programmers which one do you use and why??? What do you like or not like about them??? I currently have and use the Diablo but just found out I can't shut off the sensor light with it after I put an O/R h-pipe in my car, but I have heard you can do this with the SCT. I have also heard several people say they like the SCT better but nobody has really said why. So before I sell my Diablo to get an SCT I wanted to know what everyone else thinks about these.

Yes, an SCT does have that feature to shut off your rear oxygen sensors. I haven't personally tried the Diablo, but from what I can tell, SCT's diagnostic tools and things of that nature are a lot better.

Re: Diablo Predator vs. SCT X3

SCT X-CAL3

Why?

My tuner that I wanted to use used it

I can data log with it

I can load my own tunes from email and load them on my car very easily

I can modify params that i cant with the diablo

many more options tuning wise out there from tuners that use sct more than diablo

Re: Diablo Predator vs. SCT X3

Yah SCT seems more user friendly and is more popular with custom tuners.

Re: Diablo Predator vs. SCT X3

The main reason people use the tuner they use is because thats the tuner the dynoshop uses.

Re: Diablo Predator vs. SCT X3

that's a feature i'm surprised the diablo doesn't have.

but in terms of reasons: time after time i've seen our local shop take a diablo tuned car and get better results after re-tuning with an SCT device
