I ordered the predator w/ interface cables and a 180 tstat from maryland speed. thumbsup I got the tstat and cables a few days ago and the predator was coming today. I had to work today so I asked my brother, who was obviously dropped on his head a few more times than me when we were kids, to come to the house and sign for my package. Well he came to the house alright. And went to f***in sleep! The big brown van came and went, along with the predator. Now it has to sit all alone in sum dark, cold, storage facility until monday. I love my brother to death. But Damn!!! Mad

I picked up the diablo yesterday. After drivin around in circles for a while, i finally found the U.P.S. place. I put the t-stat on lastnite, and attempted to load the 91 octane tune this morning. Everything was going as planned, but as i was waiting for the tune to load i noticed that i didnt have my cigarette lighter. The instructions said not to open the doors or do anything to cause a fluctuation in the power supply. So being the crackhead that i am, i attempted to exit the car "Dukes Of Hazzard Style." Well as u all know, the window openings in our cars arent too tall. So I did sort of a drunken centipede type motion, and poured myself outta the car and onto the garage floor. I mite have been able to pull this off in my high school days. But of course, i yanked the damn cord out of the OBDII port with my foot. doh So after starting all the way over, i got it loaded. I reset the tcm and lowered the fan settings. Just came back from a drive, and all i can say is...WOW!!!

I'm glad you didn't brick your car. Now, get it to Mr. Norm's for a dyno tune and you'll really be rockin'.
