Diablo Sport worth it?

I have the chance to trade a beat hardtop from the old jeep for a what looks like a NIB diablo sport tuner for a 6.0.. I have read that they can cause auto issues but i have a 6spd. Guy is willing to trade if i add 75 bux. is it worth it to get the diablo for now and then get an SCT later?

I would just save up and get the SCT tuner right away..

Nothing "wrong" with the diablo since your truck is a manual... But the power is amazing in a SCT

OK ill prolly just save up for the SCT then. Just figured i would ask around. I have heard most tuners like bullydog and edge are rough on the trans. But seeing as i have a manual i though i would be alright

I ran the Diablo for about a month, previous owner had it, and you could tell a difference. But it's no SCT with a custom tune.

Yea I had a diablo on my truck when I bought it and it didn't make much of a difference specially compared to an sct even canned tunes. And plus I have an auto and it didnt like the diablo at all.
