I hate to beat a dead horse but i think if we can get the guys at hp tuner to make the software for the northstar they could make $$ i use the software alot and it is very nice stuff you can change almost everything in the cars computer,and i mean everything it also comes with a very nice dataloger and controls if we let them know that ther is a stong intrest i think that they will make it. this is good software for the price $500 is not much for what you get if we can get the cadillac guys and the bonneville guys with the gxp northstar cars doing the same thing i know that he make it.here is a link check it out there is a forum that might help to let our needs be known if every body will let them know
i looked at there web page and saw that they do have software for the 06-07 n* and started a thread on the forum for 98-04 if we can add to it they might get on it so come on guys this has a good chance for something that we need
If they can do it for the '06 DTS, then it shouldn't take much to modify it down the model line. It still uses the same FWD L37/LD8-4T80E platform. The engine and trans are the same, it's just a matter of coding, and communication.

Re: tuning software
makes ya wonder if you got rid of the torque management, advanced the timing some, tweeked the fueling profiles and firmed up the shifts if it would make much of a difference on the northstar? I have a Chevy Colorado I used a hp tuner on and it did make a big difference in drive-ability. The truck has such better low end and pulls a lot better when passing on the highway, drives like a different vehicle after the Hp tune, so ya, lets write them emails.
my "chip" with my other mods shot my 0-60 from 6.7 to 5.8
our cars can use some comp modding
ive tried hypertech everybody and no one seems to be interested...
thats how i found my prototype JET chip....
anyways what do i gotta do to show these guys...
MAKE IT I WILL BUY IT I ALREADY SPENT 900 ON A CHIP I WILL PAY TO GET MORE POWER!!!!
where on their site does it say they make it for 4.6 lacs?
go to shop online , under the pic of the cd and cable go to supported vehicles list then go down to gm gen IV vehicles.if you got that good of a drop in time think of what custom tune can do,we can change cams,have head work done and go with forced induction and not need to go with a stand alone system after all they do support 2 and 3 bar map scaling.i use a lot of differant software to tune cars and this is the best i have got to use so far,i would love to get in to the n* vcm to see how much power can be had. to show these guys there is intrest email and go to the forum,register and post in the thread i started it is under the vcm suite feature requests you will see northstar software
you could email them the numerous threads ive posted about the pcm being hacked or tryin to hack it or hypertech will hack it
it would prove our plight alot faster and i doubt people will register they are lazy...
i did it...
but notice how im the only one that has...
im telling you your best bet is to contact them directly and send them a few links to threads here where people have discussed other people making programmers...
hell search for threads started by me youll see a whole bunch
me speedy mark99sts and only a few others have not only wanted performance but have also actively sought out companies and tried to get them to make a programmer...
