Which do you prefer: Diablo or SCT?

Do you trust Diablo or SCT to give you a better tune for your car?

Re: Which do you prefer: Diablo or SCT?

I have been with SCT since before they were SCT.

But there are a few good Diablo tuners out there.

I voted for SCT, but.....


I would see what any dyno shops near you prefer to use and go with that. That will make it easier for you to get tuned as the shop will be familiar with the software that your using

Re: Which do you prefer: Diablo or SCT?

I say diablo because I have one, it is a piece of cake to use, you can datalog with it as you drive and view/playback the results with free software later, and there is an amazing tuner just a few hours from you in Mobile that only charges $250 to custom tune your car on the rollers and only $125 for lifetime mail order tunes and updates.

SCT has it's plus in that it can hold more than one tune at a time. So, you can do like Kyle does and jump back and forth between street tunes and race tunes pretty quickly. The diablo only holds one tune, so if you wanted to go from street to strip, you would need to transfer the second tune from a computer to the tuner before you could upload it. Not a big deal for me because I only need 1 tune.

So, in summary, I say diablo.

See, I don't go to the track hardly at all...so I just have a need for the one tune....the FAST one. lol And since it is my second car and not driven much (11k in 3 years) I don't care about mileage and such...

Re: Which do you prefer: Diablo or SCT?

i use diablo.

and i could care less about "their" tune that they send, cause im gonna take their general bunk *** tune and modify it myself anyways

but if you dont know what youre doing, i hear SCT has better premade tunes than diablo, but diablo is easier to use if you want to modify one of your tunes.

im with smurfin, i only need one tune for right now. maybe later if i ever decide to go nitrous fed, ill get the powerpuck that can store multiple tunes. but one tune is good for me.
