DiabloSport inTune i3 Review
Out now! Brand new this year! Order NOW!
DiabloSport is on the verge of releasing a brand new 50-State Legal performance programmer paired with a sister product for true tuning addicts that's compatible with their CMR custom tuning software. We've gotten a sneak peak at both SKU's and are sharing a bit of this intel with the community now to help you decide if it is time to upgrade or even make your first dive into custom tuning with Diablosport's NEW inTune i3 or inTune i3 Platinum. Here's what you need to know.
The Upgrade: from inTune i2 to inTune i3
The brand new DiabloSport inTune i3 is a redesign and upgrade from the i2 model. The i3 takes the power, features, and applications that the i2 had and multiplies them, taking your performance tuning abilities to the next level. DiabloSport's inTune line has been known in the industry as a "must-have" tuning system for both performance enthusiasts and gearheads alike. You will find all the custom tuning features you love are still here along with some brand new features. The i3 made its debut in September 2017 & blew us away.
The inTune i3 is 50-State Legal
The most astonishing addition is that the i3 is legal in all 50 States of the Union, including California! That's right! She's CARB (California Air Resources Board) certified. Now you may be thinking, so what, especially if you don't currently live in Cali, but hold on a sec there, partner. If you are looking to mod and tune your daily driver, and you live anywhere in the U.S., this new tuner from DiabloSport will keep you one step ahead of the Feds and your local State government. If you live in a State that currently has emissions testing, having a product like the i3 that is CARB certified means you won't have to worry because Cali has the most rigid regulations in the U.S. One of my personal fears is that our local emissions testing will be brought up to code with California. And should that ever happen, my new i3 will still have me covered. A number of States are currently considering making changes to their emissions testing procedures. Don't get caught with a ticket the next time you are at smog or emissions centers. Upgrade today! Diablosport has taken the worry out of tuning, by investing the time to research and keep your vehicle in compliance with local emissions laws all without sacrificing horsepower--no corning cutting here. You'll see the great performance tunes you know and love, only now they are legal anywhere you want to drive throughout the entire United States of America. Your buddies will be shocked when you tell them your bad ass pro-tuned ride is actually still street legal, so you don't have to switch back to stock to go renew your registration or go through any regulatory testing.
Start Tuning Today at the New Low Price
Whether you are upgrading from the i2 or just getting into tuning, it has never been more affordable. This 3rd generation in the inTune series starts at a new low price for the 50 State legal model, and just bit more for those of you who also need a PCM Swap to start getting the most out of your vehicle with a performance tune from the experts at DiabloSport.

Diagnostics & Data
The DiabloSport inTune i3 still allows for scanning of your Engine Computer Unit for Diagnostic Trouble Codes. With today's modern technology, access to a scanner like the i3 can help you pinpoint nearly any issue or troubleshoot whatever is going wrong with your auto. Your everyday garage mechanic's ability to tap into your truck's computer is now literally right in the palm of your hand. Save valuable time diagnosing various automotive problems. The i3 is a product that both tunes and helps you with repairs.
Access your vehicle's controller via the OBDII port (On-Board Diagnostics 2) to send various PIDs (Parameter IDs) to learn about your auto's performance and even tweak numbers under the hood all from this handheld touch screen aftermarket device.
Furthermore, using Data Logging, you can retrieve hidden diagnostic data that is stored within your ECU or PCM, and export it onto your PC using DiabloSport software to further analyze and tweak your tunes for maximum performance. While on previous models, this all had to be done via an adapter cable, we suspect that with the new Wi-Fi capabilities, we may be able to do this all wirelessly now, but DiabloSport has not yet confirmed this.
Regardless, you'll be able to use this information to make changes to your tunes as needed. Looking for better fuel usage or to up your miles per gallon? There's tunes for that. Want to adjust your idle speed? You can do that too. The i3 gives you nigh complete control over your vehicle's electronic systems and hence many of the mechanical ones too.
Going Platinum? Try the inTune i3 Platinum
For even more control at the same exact price, upgrade to Platinum to gain access to DiabloSports' CMR: Chip Master Revolution software. While you have the ability to custom tune on the i3 yourself, CMR gives you added control to get every last ounce of horsepower from your vehicle. The CMR unlocks your PCM/ECU to allow your vehicle to reach maximum potential. Additional parameters that you gain access to include: fuel tables, MAP Resolution, sparking timing tables, Power Enrichment, and much more. DiabloSport ChipMaster Revolution really takes your engine build to the next level. The only draw back to going with the Platinum i3 is that it isn't 50 State Certified like the regular i3.
Ergonomic Grip and Slide Resistant Back
The new design of the i3 includes protective rubberized edges & a back plate that is slide resistant with nubs on the sides that fit your grip. While the i2 was sleek, it was also easy to drop--so the i3 has improvements on the inside & the outside that you'll be able to see right out of the box.
Ports: Mini USB to PC; OBDII Cable
We gained access to some pics of the external ports on the i3 as well. The Mini USB port on the top left pic connects to your PC via a USB cable; while the much wider port on the bottom right connects to your OBDII port under your dash. Is that maybe a 3.5mm port wired for headphones also?
PCM Swaps 4 Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep/Hellcat
For those of you with encrypted PCM (powertrain control modules or vehicle computers) such as those found on 2015+ models of Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep Wranglers, and Hellcats (Dodge Challengers), DiabloSport offers PCM Swaps as well. Easy to install and then tune at will!
Handheld Tuner at It’s Finest: The DiabloSport inTune i3
If you’re looking for a handheld tuner that can be used to program and calibrate a variety of PIDs, then look no further than the inTune i3. This newest update from DiabloSport has everything you could ever desire in a handheld programmer, and then some.
Whether you’re a beginner or ready to make or order your own custom tunes, the inTune i3 has the functionality you’re looking for.
With options for a 50 State Compliant Tuner and the Platinum i3 which can be used to custom tune your vehicle, DiabloSport has an inTune for just about every single truck or Jeep owner out there. Whether you’re in Cali or a place where you get yearly emissions tests or your out in the open country, bouncing over trails, whether you’re hitting the racetrack every weekend or just drifting with your buddies on some country roads, inTune can handle it. And with support for most vehicles on the road today and the ability to purchase multi-vehicle licenses, this baby could tune your truck, your muscle car, and your little four banger too.
If versatility and being able to do what you want with your vehicle is what you crave, the inTune has you covered there too. Even with their 50 State Compliant tunes, you’ll be able to feel the Power of your engine after you load your first performance tune.
If you’re looking to squeeze a few extra miles per gallon out of your truck or Jeep, there’s a solid fuel economy tune as well. And with “Easy Tune” mode, whether you’re a total noob to programming or you’ve been doing it for years, you’ll have no trouble loading a pre-packaged tune and getting on the road fast.
Finally, if you opt to go Platinum i3 (not 50 State Compliant), then you’ll have access to DiabloSports CMR custom tuning software. You can check out their list of nationwide custom tuning dealers or find someone online to hook you up with some sick tunes specifically calibrated and designed for your ride. At the end of the day, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better handheld programmer than the inTune i3 from DiabloSport. Get yours today from Midwest Aftermarket.
