I need a tuner

I am looking at buying a tuner. I've read great things about Diablo products, and I am getting ready to pull the trigger on the DiabloSport In tune I3 Platinum. I just ordered a walbro 255, with the regulator and return setup, and I already have the agp wastegate, BOV, catless down pipe, full exhaust, intake, fuel rail, and the aem Tru boost and air fuel gauges, a staged ecu, and a 3 bar map sensor. All vacuum lines are deleted, and the tip sensor isn't hooked to anything (previous owner did that). Is this tuner going to be a good addition to my setup? I'm not looking for gigantic power numbers, just a solid running daily driver.

Hey chum I don’t know how much of a bump I would give you but many people I have read on posts and several people I personally know highly recommend the Diablo sport tunes. Then followed by having someone knowledgeable tinker within that tune afterwards. I plan on doing it as soon as I fix a few things that just need some loving maintenance. I am told with mine being only really having stage 2 so probably around 260 hp ish a diablo and a good custom tune it could be pretty easy to get to 350 ish. Let me know if you do get it and what you think of it. Good luck!

How poorly does this car run?

What are your goals here? The fuel system is pointless if you're on a stock turbo. You'll want to get the TIP sensor hooked up.

The car is lean almost all the time. It doesn't run bad, but I feel certain it could run better. I have an issue with the factory fuel regulator, so that's the main reason I am doing the fuel system. As far as a goal goes, I really only want a solid daily driver. I need a vehicle that I can depend on to transport my newborn daughter, and drive everyday while I am working on my truck. I am not looking for a high hp vehicle right now.

Also how do I go about hooking up the tip sensor? I found a diagram for an aftermarket wga, bov, and electronic boost controller. Looks like one line goes to the throttle body, one to the tip, and the other to atmosphere.

What problem are you having with the FPR?

There is a vacuum diagram under the hood. This post also has some.

The regulator intermittenly leaks. Sometimes a little sometimes alot. Someone did the pump rewire and they couldn't have done a worse job. The factory hood isn't on the car either, so I don't have the diagrams.

What does a rewire have to do with the regulator?
