    So, just like the title says... I am trying to get feedback on the best aftermarket tuning ECU/PCM option.

    There appear to be two real choices: 1) HP Tuners, and 2} Diablo Sport.

    1) HP Tuner is $499 for the private suite option and can do at least two cars. That is good for me b/c I have a magnum as well. It looks like they charge $249 to unlock your hellcat ECU. I would get a new OEM one for this to keep the stocker untouched.

    2) Diablo Sport is $799 plus the needed handheld. The $799 includes a new unlocked ECU, and it is $1,100 or $1,200 total depending on which hand held you go with. Their ECU does have a disclaimer saying it will only be unlocked for Diablo's software/tuners.

    Please chime in with your experience or thoughts. Thanks!

    I like the Diablo package. I'd go with the intune i2. It's cheaper, does everything needed and you can add licenses to it and tune as many cars as you want with it. Cool little device and you don't need your laptop with you to switch between tunes, make minor adjustments, or return it to stock for dealer service.

    Are you just looking for the off the shelf package?
    Or are you eventually going to want to mod your car for dragging the 1/4 and having more Quicker ET'S and speed?

    What is Linda's receipe for a 9 sec Cat blower only?

    Here is a thread that was started on Me and My car. I was the 1st R&D car for Josh /HHP to start and we haven't finished yet.

    I'm not sure if this will answer all your questions, but what was done to my car all the parts can be purchased through HHP and Josh can also remotely tune your car.
    Or you can do what many customer have done is ship there car to HHP in Smyrna Delaware.
    Customers are from all over our country and from outside the Country
    Here is their Web address, be sure to view it in desktop version.

    I had a very good discussion with Josh yesterday and planning to go with 2.85 Pulley and 93/109 tune at the moment. (I already got 17X10 weld, AL DS)
