Icon14 Diablosport 7157 Tuner for 07-08 Ford Ranger!

I have owned several Diablosport tuners for my many Mustangs and when I found they made one for the Ranger, I just couldn't resist! I bought mine only for about $320 shipped, it arrived in 4 days and it couldn't have been soon enough. I just bought a 2007 Ranger XLT reg cab, 2.3 duratec automatic. It was "sluggish" to say the least with a heavy Undercover brand bed cover, class 4 monster aftermarket hitch, full size spare and a original owner that was very "gentle" with it. Well after some almost 10 second 0-60 second runs, I had to try the Diablosport... If anything to get it on par with the very impressive 5 speed duratecs. Here is my findings: Very nice transmission difference! Way faster acceleration times (3 seconds faster almost to 60mph) and a new, sporty feel to the very boring slush box in the Ranger... Also im guessing on about 3-4 mpg better economy. Here is the video... I can't be happier with this tuner!!! Especially since i'm on the lowest level of three tunes and getting this good of results!

Your truck is governed for a reason. Chances are your tires aren't rated to go faster than that either (assuming you have stock ones).

Agreed. My tuner made a noticeable difference. Was I making gobs of power? No but compared to stock there was a decent difference. With my tires and tuner my truck has about the power of a stock truck.

Well i'm going to dig up this thread since I just bought a Predator from Bad04duratec. Installed it last night but haven't really gotten a chance to test it out. Gonna try it out Monday when i'm off.

Well after several hours of driving I have to say I'm very pleased with it. Right off the bat I can tell the throttle response is much better. I was running 91 tune but installed the 91 performance tune this morning to run for a while. I'll be driving it down to Charleston in 2 weeks and will see how the highway mileage does.

I bought the one that was for sale in this thread and yes it recalibrates your speedo. As for mileage... it didn't make any huge difference on my 4.0L.

I couldn't get any better mileage out of it than when I was just driving as economically as I could before I had it. The difference I noticed is that my mileage is better when driving normally. Hope that makes sense...

You can recalibrate the speedo with this tuner. I saw a mild increase in mileage on highway but not really during city use.
