    2015 Escalade now supported!

    We are pleased to announce that we have added tuning support for the 2015 Cadillac Escalade applications with the 6.2 V8 to both the inTune I-1000 and Trinity T-1000 tuners.
    Tunes for 87/91/93 octane and an MPG booster tune are included, and you can increase throttle response, disable AFM, remove speed limiters, and more!




    Let us know if you need any more info!

    Thanks

    Yep, just got the email in my box a second again. Used it to tune on my 2012 Escalade with the 87 Octane tune. Not sure it did anything extremely noticeable, but I suppose it's only meant to be a minor improvement. I think you can pick up 10-15 HP with it and some torque if you use the Diablo (93 Octane) Tune. One thing you can use it for is to program in different wheel sizes, so it's handy if you switch between stock and custom wheel sizes. Also can use it to remove the top speed limiter. I'll be plugging it into my 2015 shortly, probably try the Diablo Tune this time around. There is some guy name Lew who operates under the name DiabLew Tune that advertises to do custom tunes, not sure if they are worthwhile or not.

    ----------

    I do have a question though. Is simply restoring the factory tune before taking it in for service sufficient? Can GM tell it's been messed with? I can only compare it to hacking an Android phone. Yeah you can do it, and restore it to stock, but you may still trip a flash counter along the way that will let the OEM know it was modified at one point.

    20 hp, 25 ft/lbs at the wheels on premium fuel.
    $389 for inTune, $599 for the Trinity (monitor).

    Trans support is also included with preloaded TCM tunes for firm or hard shifts.

    Thanks

    Lew's tunes are pretty awesome, check out the reviews on his site

    We leave no trace of having been in there.

    DiabloMike,

    I bought an InTune yesterday. plugged it in and downloaded all updates. I get an unknown TCM error when plugging it into my 2015 Escalade. I can proceed with the ECM tune though. I dumped the TCM and emailed it into support. Is the TCM not supported yet? The email I got a few weeks back and this thread make it put like the 2015 is fully supported.

    I was sent an update yesterday that added TCM support for the 2015 Escalade. Seems to be everything is supported now. Only thing missing is a 93 and 91 Octane tune. You have Diablo, 87 Octane and MPG canned tunes to play with for now.

    Re: 2015 Escalade now supported!

    Guys, now that I got the latest update to support our tranny I can say hands down you should all be buying an InTune for your Escalades.

    It's like a whole new vehicle now, super sporty feeling. If that's your cup of tea, it's worth the money for sure. I can't comment with certainty about the hp increases, but it certainly feels like there is some. The tranny tune is what I really love though, it hangs into gear at wide open throttle a lot longer so I don't lose all my torque. I had to restore to stock yesterday when I brought my vehicle in for service. I drove it for about 10 miles on stock and was like "damn, this vehicle totally sucks now". It's a night and day difference.

    I also had a custom tune done from Diablewtune to load up on my InTune, not sure if it's worth it over the canned tunes, but I only had it done yesterday. Need more miles on the custom tune to have an opinion.

    Pro tip: when tuning with keyless start, make sure you hold in the button for ten seconds (no brake) to turn the car on. The button should light up green and the engine will stay off. If you just press the button real quick to turn it on, the light will be orange. The vehicle will turn back off before the tune has loaded and you'll have to start over.
