What am I looking at? Couldn't find any info or pics, not even on FAQ.

Looking for a heads up on a wait4me PCM install. Thanks.

I just recently did this, very easy. I have the page saved in favorites, but on a different computer. I think the topic was installing a shift light, or something like that. (In the FAQ)

The search in the FAQ works pretty well if you can't find what you're looking for.

Oh, and the part that says you need a small screwdriver or whatever to get the tab to release on the cover is wrong. Just a little concentrated pressure with your fingers is more than enough to get it to release. :yawn:

Mine was just pull up on the dyno and the tuner plugged in. ;) I couldn't really notice a difference, but +20 hp on a car like this you can't feel.

Mine hits the 1-2 and 2-3 shift much stronger than before. Before it was a nice chirp now it is a full on squeal with hop :) and it chips at much lower rpm than before. I really think a road tune with data logging is the way to go atleast for me.

I can tell some difference. Really been driving the car hard over the past few days before and after the tune. I'll tell you how much Thursday.

Thanks and keep us posted. I might just go for it for the extra PCM. Is yours an LS2 or LS6?

LS6. K&N kit only. After the dyno I may get a custom exhaust done.


Biggest reason I went this way was to get the extra pcm.

Ordered. Guy seemed to know his stuff when I spoke with him. FYI, LS2 PCMs are a lot more expensive than LS6.
