I am new to this. I bought a 2006 Mustang Gt yesterday. it has 24000 miles. It has a single squire turbo. Magnaflow exhaust. Also a diablosport predator tuner and a MAFia. My problem is if i get on it hard then the wrench light and check engine light come on. I looked it up and that is the "limphome" setting. I believe it has something to do with the predator but all it came with was the actually predator and nothign else. How do i retune or update the tune on the car?

if you bought a car with a turbo on it, you should definitely pay to put it on the dyno to make sure everything is spot on with the tune. a dyno tune will also get rid of all cel's

by the way, those rear mount turbos are sick

+1.

Get a dyno tune. Stay out of big boost till you get it sorted. :eek:

$400-$600 and make sure it's done by a reputable shop. Where are you located?

Talk to the owners of the car before you? Unless it was at a dealer

Sounds like the limp mode is being engaged because the tune isn't accounting for the torque numbers your seeing from the turbo. If that's the case then don't even trust that tune. My torque tables are completely locked out in my tune to disallow false CEL's.

Lastly, it's not hard to stay out of boost if you realize what is likely to happen if you do damage. Unless your pockets are lined with money for a rebuild, then it should be real easy to never see boost until after you get the car on the rollers.

Getting it dynoed or dyno-tuned? There is a big difference between the 2.

Hey did you go to Diablosport website? If you have a predator, Diablosport has authorized service center dyno tuners. You might be able to find one in your area. That's what did here. Then the guy downloaded the program created to the predator. No problems at all and I am very happy.
