Running the 93 CAI Canned tune, I saw IMMEDIATE positive changes in how the 300c accelerated and drove in general. I then raised the shift points and the shift firmness with the preset levels available.
I am VERY happy with my purchase. Paying $135 shipped from a member here was a bonus!

You can, but you can only use it on one at a time. meaning if you have a Diablo tune in your charger, your Magnum will have to be set to stock first and vice versa.

fender pull is still better overall, I still have to install, it's an ebay one. Funny thing is the ebay one is the cheapest, but it's the most authentic CAI.

I'm actually kind of getting excited for the predator, i want to know what it feels like to get an extra 15 or so hp.
I see a lot of people run 93 and 91 tunes, what's the best for a daily driver that does 100% city driving?
and can i run a 91 tune with 89 octane and maybe aces IV added in that? Thanks for the help in advance.
Do the math, yourself. It isn't "free" like advertised (ACES), check your local gas prices differentials, and what you paid for the product WITH SHIPPING. It comes out to about $0.40 per gallon. Last I checked, the differential between mid grade and high test was $0.10 per gallon. (We only have 87, 89 and 93 in my area)
10.6 tankfulls per quart of ACES, about $7 per tank extra for the additive, versus less than $2 (or $4 depending on location) for using the right octane to begin with. Someones math is a little... off.
Your best bet to know if you can run reduced octane with a higher tune is to do what I did, and it's a simple test. Hook a laptop to your Predator, run the gas you expect to run (89 and ACES IV in your example) and datalog some good hard runs. See if you have knock. I would think it's also important to datalog right when you switch over, so the adaptives don't just pull timing and learn to keep it that way... not sure how long term it pulls timing, but I would imagine you could have reduced timing and not show on your Predator or logs.
FWIW, driving normally you could probably run 87 and a 93 tune without knock... but step on it a bit and you'll have a boatload.
Run what you want for fuel, just make an informed decision about it.

I run the 91 tune with 93 octane gas. The 91 tune doesn't have as much timing as the 93 tune so on a hot day with a hot motor you knock sensors should stay a little quieter. But nothing beats a custom tune.
Yes you can run the 91 tune on 89oct with the Aces IV, or the 83 tune on 91oct with the AcesIV. I've data logged both ways and you get minimal KR at WOT
I also launch with foot on the brake and gas pedal all the way down, then just let off the brake. Gave me the most consistent 60' times and best ETs rather than trying any other way.
