Reviews on diablosport t1000

Hi. I’m trying to find some info, reviews, and dyno results for the t1000 and the 4.6 3v. I’m having no luck. I want the results just for the tuner without an intake. If anyone knows the details or where to point me to find them would be great. Thanks in advance. I’m also not interested in sct at the moment.

Why are you considering it? What are your current modifications?

Hardly anyone used Diablo for the 3v. Tuning is simply recalibrating the engine's computer and sensors in response to modifications. It isn't a magical "hp gain"; however, you can gain some stock by leaning it out, advancing timing, etc over the stock programming.

You'll get more hits on tech related questions if you update your signature with your mods or post them in your post.

Edited because I thought he was referring to the Diablo MAF not the tuner and more edit in response to your other post. View it. You need to understand what a tuner is, which I tried to explain there.

I have an o/r xpipe which the light is on because of the o2 sensor. I have upgraded the wheels and tires and the tire pressure light is on. I know what a tuner does. It’s just a stepping stone to future mods. I’m stuck between nitrous or a power adder. The first step in adding either is the tuner.

Try to get ahold of Ken Bjonnes. He used to be one of DiabloSport's top Tuners before opening up Palm Beach Dyno.

this gives some clues as to what you need, and what questions you should ask:

1) you need to turn off the rear O2 sensors, since you don't have any (I assume you already know you will not pass emissions inspection without catalytic converters) . . . so you need a tuner that allows the user to turn them off directly, or you need someone to write you a tune with them turned off

2) your new tires apparently either do not have TPMS sensors installed, or they are the wrong ones, or they need to be synched to the car . . . pre-2010 and 2010+ TPMS sensors re not compatible, so first you need to make sure you have the right ones; then you need the synch tool, or a tuner that can do the synch . . . I am not aware of tuners being able to to that, but it would be a good question to ask

3) the first step is actually knowing if you will do your own tuning, or if you will have someone write the tunes for you; then you can buy a tuner device that the tuner person says will work for what you need to do. It's important that whoever does the adjustments, knows what they are doing . . .

I won’t be doing my own tuning. I never dig into it before so it’s not something I’m willing to mess with. I was talking to Lito via email and he will be doing tuning for me when I’m ready for it.

I left the sensors out when I installed the wheels and tires. I have them in a pvc pipe with air pressure to keep the light off. The problem with that is I can hear it over bumps and I want to get rid of it.

No yearly inspections here to worry about emissions. Once and done. There is talk of bringing it in but if they do I still have the factory pipe with cats so a quick swap out will have me in business if I need it.

I'm 99% sure Lito uses SCT only, so that answers your original question

Personally, I'd rather have my TPMS sensors in my tires so they can tell me when I am getting a flat, LOL . . . . but the PVC pipe trick effectively defeats the system and turns the light off . . . the only reason i know to do that PVC pipe thing, is if you have a set of winter wheels that do not have TPMS inside and you want the light to stay off, I guess that is why you did that. Anyway I guess that already solved the light problem, and you could put some foam or something in there to stop the rattling. I don't think you can turn off the TPMS in the tune, if that's what you are trying to get at.

My dealer told me when I installed the wheels and tires it was gonna be $65 plus tax for new bands for the sensors. Each!! So I said no thank you. I’m sure I probably could’ve ordered them online somewhere a hell of a lot cheaper than that. But I was impatient and wanted my wheels and tires in the car ASAP. Although I am sure a good tuner like Lito could probably figure out how to turn it off.

I’ll have to ask him if he’s sct exclusive though. I didn’t know that.

There are aftermarket TPMS sensors available for $200 or less per set of four, but unfortunately now you would need to have the tires removed and remounted to put them in. Be aware that the 2005-2009 TPMS system and sensors are not compatible with 2010-2014 so if you do buy new sensors, make sure you get the right ones for your model year.

I am working with Lito right now for my tune, and he definitely does prefer SCT; I am not positive that he would refuse to use anything else, but since SCT is the defacto standard, and he uses it, I don't see any reason to consider anything different.

I put a cluster out of an 05 into my 07 to eliminate TPMS. It's a sub 5 minute swap. Just a few bolts, unplug the cluster, put the new one in place, plug it in, bolt it up. Done.

Great idea. Lito has just confirmed to me that he is sct exclusive and cannot turn off the tpms light through tuning. Thanks for the tip.

I think I’ll forget the sensors all together. My car is a garage queen lol. She is very meticulously taken care of. I always keep an eye on the tire pressure anyway.
