Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at the Diablosport InTune I1000 tuner for all 98 and newer Mustangs. The InTune is Diablosport’s affordable yet extremely powerful touch screen handheld programmer that’s loaded with a number of different features, that is of course in addition to the number 1 goal of giving your ride more horsepower and torque thanks to the custom Bama tune, that’s included with the purchase of the I1000. Taking a closer look at what’s inside the package you’ll find the InTune I1000 itself, the usb cable used to connect the tuner to your computer or laptop, the OBD2 cable used to connect the tuner to your car, and finally the detailed quick start guide. As I mentioned earlier, this thing is pretty powerful despite its small size, some of the big feature include: a full color touch screen, with real time data logging and a full gig of memory, capable of capturing over 30 minutes of data. It also features real time sensor and diagnostic monitoring, where you can monitor up to 12 of your cars sensors and readings, all on one screen. Of course it can also be used as an OBD2 scan tool where you can read and clear check engine lights, just to name a few highlights. Besides the many features this tuner offers perhaps one of the major upsides it the overall ease of use, the I1000 acts like a thumb drive whenever plugged into your computer, making it much easier to unload data logs, or load new tunes, simply drag the file from your desktop onto your Diablo and you’re good to go. No more messing with crazy file extensions of third party programs to get everything sorted out. At the end of the day what good is a quality tuner without a quality tune? That’s where our experience Bama performance tuning technicians come into play. Our technicians ask you a series of 19 questions about your ride and its modifications, and then create 3 custom tailored tunes specifically for your ride. In order to find out how well this tuner worked on our own car, we need to grab a quick baseline run with our 2013 GT first, before installing the tune. With our baseline run out of the way, let’s get to work installing our custom Bama tune. The process of uploading the tune is pretty easy, you’ll first want to connect the tuner to your car using the supplied OBD2 cable. Once the tuner powers on, navigate to the tune you wish to upload, then follow the detailed instructions on the screen. Once the tune has finished uploading, you can either disconnect the tuner from your car, or you can leave it plugged in to view the real time data. With the tune uploaded, I’m going to make another pull here on the Dynojet and see what kind of improvements this tune made on our 2013. Our baseline run with our 2013 GT gave us 362 horsepower and 358 ft/lbs of torque, with our Diablosport and Bama combination, we were able to put down 387 horsepower and 373 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 23 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 25 horsepower and 23 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. We have seen bigger gains on the 11 and 12 cars using the exact same tune, this is due to the slightly more aggressive factory tune and more horsepower found on the 2013. The Intune I1000 from Diablosport is an affordable yet highly capable programmer, that can handle all of your tuning needs with ease, especially when paired with a custom Bama tune, yet still offers enough bells and whistles to satisfy even the both jaded gearhead.
