If you're looking for a Challenger Tuner or Charger Tuner, Diablosport has you covered. Diablosport has been an industry leader in vehicle recalibration, specifically handheld tuners and tuning software since 2001. Back then they had some cutting edge tuning components, such as the Delta Chip (remember those?), but shortly thereafter they came up with the extremely popular Predator handheld programmer. The Predator programmer was one of the first tuning options that required basically no installation. In those days you’d typically have to remove the ECM and piggyback on a chip or module, but with the Predator you just plugged it in and downloaded your tune. Not only that but it was the first handheld tuner that offered custom tuning and adjustable options, making it an amazing all-in-one mod. This is all commonplace now but only thanks to innovations, in large part, by Diablosport.
Fast-forward to today and the Predator has evolved over a few generations of improvement. The Predator evolved into the InTune, which was the first fully touchscreen tuner. The InTune was eventually upgraded to the InTune i2 with some useful bells-and-whistles, not the least of which is the ability to tune more than one car with a single tuner! Each additional vehicle requires a $99 license fee, way cheaper than the cost of a new tuner. Now they’ve just introduced the Intune i3. Diablosport’s all new InTune i3 HEMI tuner combines all the previous successes of the InTune line and adds even more one-of-a-kind innovations. For the first time you can get a 50-state legal tuner for the majority of their supported applications. Diablosport part number 8300, for instance, works with most 2006-2014 HEMI applications (2015+ also with a PCM unlock) and is fully emissions legal in all 50 states.
It’s important to note that Diablosport has been the undisputed leader in tuning late model Dodge HEMI engines. From the beginning Dodge has made it difficult to tune the 2006+ Charger, Challenger Hemi. Back in 2008 Diablosport decided to tackle this problem head on and were the first to offer a fully tunable flash tuner for the late model Hemi cars and trucks. Prior to this development, not many parts were even available for those cars because they were so tuning-limited. After the Diablosport Predator HEMI tuner was released the late model Mopar tuning boom began. Now there’s a huge market for aftermarket Hemi upgrades, from HEMI cold air intakes to serious mods like HEMI intake manifolds or HEMI superchargers.
So it’s clear that there are many innovations and lots of tuning options on the Diablosport i3, but how easy is it to use? Don’t worry; you don’t have to be a “computer guy” to quickly and safely tune your late model Charger or Challenger with the i3. It’s a simple as navigating a few menus to let the tuner know what mods you have and any custom settings you desire, such as speedometer correction, shit point and firmness changes, etc., then flashing the tune. If for some reason that sounds too complicated you can just use their Easy Tune option, which simplifies it down to a question/answer format, making an already easy process completely fool-proof. Even if you have a hard time using a smart phone, you’ll still be able to operate the Diablosport Hemi i3 tuner easily.
Typical Power Gains
2007-2017 Challenger or Charger 5.7L: 15 Horsepower 20 Foot Pounds
2006-2010 Challenger or Charger 6.1L: 25 Horsepower 25 Foot Pounds
2011-2014 Challenger or Charger 6.4L: 15 Horsepower 20 Foot Pounds
2015-2017 Challenger or Charger 6.4L: 10 Horsepower 10 Foot Pounds
2015-2017 Challenger or Charger 6.2L: 30 Horsepower 30 Foot Pounds
The payoff for your small investment of time and a few hundred bucks is a noticeable power gain throughout the RPM range. Obviously since this tuner works on a variety of Dodge vehicles, the power gain varies, but typical gains are in the 15 horsepower range and can be as high as 23 horsepower and 23 foot pounds of torque, as in the case of the Challenger or Charger 6.1L applications. If you have a Hellcat powered car, you can expect gains of 30 horsepower and 30 foot pounds at the wheels, just from the Diablosport preloaded tune! Not only are you getting real power gains from the tune, the Diablosport i3 tuner also delivers great driving excitement in other forms such as increased throttle response and shift firmness (auto trans only). The Diablosport InTune i3 Hemi tuner really is one of the best mods to start with, as it delivers results and really opens up your options for future mods.
Also an important consideration is that if you have a 2015 or later Challenger, Charger, 300C or any other HEMI or Hellcat application you want to tune, you’re going to need to have the PCM unlocked. Sadly, Dodge began heavily encrypting their PCM in 2015 which requires some serious reprogramming that must be done at Diablosport. They have come up with a simple way of working around this though, as you can now simply swap your PCM for an unlocked one. The process is very simple and much less expensive than buying an unlocked PCM outright. How it works is you buy the tuner and PCM swap kit (part number 8320 in this case) and when you receive the kit you simply register online to receive your unlocked PCM. Diablosport verifies your purchase and send out an unlocked PCM and a prepaid return label. When you get it you simply swap the PCM out, flash your new tune and return your old PCM in the same packaging. Shipping is even prepaid both ways, including 2-day air when shipping the unlocked PCM to you.

Diablosport just released the Intune i3 tuner and Brothers Performance will be one of the first dealers to receive a shipment of them. Based on the popularity of the earlier i2 model we’re certain these are going to be a wildly popular tuner, especially for the Dodge Hemi applications as that’s where the Diablosport tuner really stands out. If you need a Charger Tuner or a Challenger Tuner, check out the Intune I3.
