Strange question I know...
I've heard so much about how the tunes you can get out of the Predator help with performance, shifting firmness, etc etc...
But I was wondering, with all the changes this makes, how does overall ride quality change? In normal driving, is the shifting jerky, or smooth? etc etc...
I have an 06 Magnum R/T AWD, stock except for a Mopar CAI.
Thanks guys, much appreciated!

The ride quality is the same if not better.

On mine, the tranny's set up as aggressive as the Predator can make it. I usually drive fairly moderately most of the time. The car shifts just like stock during normal driving. You wouldn't know it had been altered at all. However, during wot runs, the tranny cracks off firm, quick shifts. It's a bit more jarring/neck-snapping than I'm used to, but it's how the car should shift under those conditions. It's only bad when I let-off the throttle right as it's about to shift(usu due to speed-limit coming up fast he-he), then it can throw my head around way more than I like, but like I said, it's how the car should shift under those conditions.

Hey Shaft, you cannot go wrong with the diablo. It's your entry point to awesome HP gains. As you start modding your LX, the pred is the tool you want to use to dial in your new mods. Usually that would require a CMR tune, where a FI tuner will dial in your parth throttle and WOT settings. It also allows you turn on/off some stuff such as MDS, if you have 5.7, amongst other settings. Diablo, is one of the best tuners for our LX's around. Bar none. Ride quaility is actually improved tremendously and even can save you gas too... well maybe... as long as you grandma it

I'm pretty sure I won't go much further than the Mopar CAI and the Diablo tuner on my car performance-wise, but...even with those two things, it can make a significant difference?

And...yep...Predator right there to make it all work together!

At the very least get a catch can, on sale until 8/31 from Billettechnology. It'll run you about $90 or so shipped w/pcv hoses at the sale price.
Like everyone is saying the ride is great during normal driving. During WOT you will notice it.
If you are concerned about grandma put it back to stock before you pick her up. Install the tune later after the appts.
