2018 Tuning options for gears/trans/speedo

Post by DirtyOffroad » Mon Jul 16, 2018 4:15 pm

Finally getting frustrated with Diablosport pushing off their tuners for the 2018s. Was Feb, then March/April, then end of may, now end of the summer. Has anyone gotten tuning done on a 2018 for gears or tire size. Ideally want 4.88 gears but if I can't get it tuned properly I wont bother.

You don't need to tune for gears. You can calibrate for tires with a ProCal or Rough Country Quick Cal.

AEV Pro Cal also does all that without the dealer visit. It's only the Tire Pressure that requires a BCM reset at the dealer.

ProCal does not work on 2018s. I work at a dealer and we can't get in either

I'm in the same boat. I've been emailing Diablo once every couple months since I picked up my 2018.

Would love to get a tune to adjust shift points, speedo, and a little extra tq. Towing a 7000lb+ trailer with 37s is not too fun.

The guys on CF figured it out and are making harnesses. You'll need to rent an AE and Maxsys.

im fed up with the shift points and i dont even tow. this factory econo tune lugs the crap out of the engine...that and i always must shift into 6th to cancel any MDS action.
tow mode handles the shift points, but the aggressive downshifts make any passengers uncomfortable...

tow mode just reminds me of better transmission hellcat days.

im all in for a tune immediately, but the transmission and tire re calibration is necessary yesterday. AEV must have it done by now. ive also been calling nonstop.
hopefully the intake and exhaust going on today will help the engine spin. im having the dealer reset my transmission computer,
i picked the truck up with 400 miles from the dealer lot, maybe the manager and test drivers fudged the initial TCM solenoid/valve thresholds? possible?

Brahaha don't count on their quoted timelines. A few years ago, they told me they would have the tuner ready for the 2014 6.4 in a month and six months later it still wasn't available.

Mine should arrive today, I'll get it installed over the weekend.

AEV posted a how to video for the 2018's. Looks fairly simple.

Yes, just be sure you put the pins in far enough and the correct direction. Just use the old pins as a guide

Installed. Turns out my 37-12.5 r17 Cooper STT Pros are closer to 36s than 37s.

With hot tire pressure at 45front and 40rear, I had to set the Procal to 35.75" to get the speedo to read correctly. I suspect the tires would be 36.5" if I had them aired to the max 50psi.

Overall I'm very happy with the simplicity of the Procal. I'll have the dealer take care of the tpms light when I get my recalls addressed.
