Diablo Sport

anyone have any experance with Diablo Chips?

i know the bama chips are the "one to get" but for the price of 1 bama tuner i can get a Intake Tube, Mass Airflow Adapter, Heat Shield, Diablo LED Deltachip from street smart design.. and i love their heat shields and polished intake pipes...

depends on application as far as chips go....

they are one of the foremost chip makers for ford as whole. They pioneered the diesel chip, as well as law enforcement. I've never heard anyone complain about them myself

SSD makes the intake, Diablo does the chips. They were supposed to dyno and make a program for my truck, but they got sidetracked on a Mustang project. They never called me, so I figured they decided there wasn't enough money in Rangers. Doug at Bama seems more devoted to our trucks, so I would trust him. Diablo just goes where the money is.

my buddy runs a Diablo Sport programmer on his Lightning and it has worked very well. He uses a very very agressive tune which requires a race gas/93 octane mixture. I recommend Diablo Sport, they have never done anyone else I know wrong either.

Just ask Doug or Dave Vanek @ EE. Doug may not be able to say anything against diablo for several reasons, but SCT is the BEST!!!! and thats not just my opinion

Exactly what Nick said. You get what you Pay for. Dougs prices are high, but you get one hell of a bang for your buck!
If your gonna do it, Do it right the first time!
