    ummmmmm You don't understand who I am. Do some research on CalEditor, PCMCalibrators or even AJxtcman. I think any of them will testify to my knowlege. Kind of funny how that works

    I have fixed more Northstars than almost anyone on this forum. I have Tuned more Northstar's than any other tuner hands down. I am a GM world Class Tech.

    That's: World Class Technician. Don't sell yourself short. Try to educate the guys in the engine repair section and see what shakes out.

    I'll send links to your site the next time an 07-09 XLR ECM tune question pops up on the other XLR forums.

    This thread got thread-jacked anyway. I thought it was about Turbocharging.

    I GET it just fine. I asked a simple on-thread question and he gave me an answer. How about making a useful contribution instead of trying to stir the pot?

    Did you watch the vidoe of the turbo Northstar that is on our site? What does it say at the top of the video of the turbo Northstar?
    We have no issue installing a Turbo or a Supercharger on a 2007 + Cadillac's -- V6, Northstar, or the LSx engines

    AJ, I guess I should step in here as moderator and ask the discussion be brought back on topic or the thread gets closed, but I keep hoping someone shows up with a detailed build.

    I recognize your NorthStar expertise, hell I'm still running your PCM in my Eldo (I blew up the tranny, but we knew I would), but this discussion is not just about the NorthStar. If it were, I would have moved the thread into NorthStar Performance long ago.

    Its about modding the NorthStar in the electronic/computer-laden nightmare called the XLR. I am confident you're capable of executing the tune if anyone ever did mount a turbo, but the OP asked if it had ever been done in an XLR. Let's all just wait and see who has.

    Good job Gizmo! This is exactly what a moderator is for.

    --Besides, anyone offering their professional services on this site should consider becoming a Supporting Vendor. Maybe someone with some actual XLR experience will help us out and offer more than free publicity and self-promotion.

    NorthStar Performance made a cam for his older Northstar, but he never got it tuned in, otherwise not to my knowledge.
