??? about my Jeep

I have searched google over and over. I have read numerous posts but I can not find exactly what I need. I bout a used Jeep that has Headers, B&B exhaust, unknown cam, catch can. I dont know if it has heads. The guy I bought it from worked at Jeep and paid the mechanic there to buy a bunch of parts and make it go fast. I hate not knowing how it is running internally. I have always tuned my cars/bikes. This jeep runs so smooth and fast. I am pretty sure it does not have a tune. The rear O2 where deleted but I know a Jeep mechanic can do that with his tool. It runs really well, but I want to make sure it is running "right".

I own a Predator and I am trying to figure it out. Few questions??

How do I know if there is a tune on it?
If it is stock with my mods should I adjust something until I get a dyno/email tune?
Should I just go the dyno route at HHP?{closest to me}
Can I run a canned tune or not recommended?

I know I can call diablo but I figured this would be my first stop. Any other info would be appreciated. I will be getting some type of tune very soon but I want to make sure I do not screw anything while using this thing.

First step. Plug your predator in and see if you can upload a tune. This will answer many of your questions.

If you can upload a tune, then there is no tune loaded. It's running the stock tune.

If you can't upload a tune then it's already tuned.

You can try loading a tune, if there is anything but a stock tune on there, the predator will tell you.
If you're unsure, I would take it to HHP, they will get it taken care of for you.

I understand the concept of the handheld. I just do not want to screw anything up by loading up a tune that might not work properly.

I appreciate guys.

Again I bought this used and the guy had zero clue if it was tuned. I want a custom tune done so what do I do from here?
