    Westers Will Hack the Northstar NOW!

    Below is a paste of my contact with them
    any and all people who WILL buy, ie NO DREAMERS NO MAYBES this is YES I WILL BUY IT, they estimate about a 45 hp increase (thats what they got with the 4.6 07 DTS) and cost to be like all of their tunes, roughly 400 dollars.
    I NEED THE VIN NUMBERS AND SERVICE NUMBERS FROM THE ECM OF ALL TRULY INTERESTED PARTIES!
    List them below in IN THIS FORMAT PLEASE (to make it easier to follow)
    thanks alot guys

    YEAR: 1997
    MODEL: Eldorado Touring Coupe
    VIN: 1G6ET1293VU616146
    SERVICE #: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (i have to look at mine i cannot right now)




    EMAIL:

    If you want a start on this,
    have people on the forum submit to you their VIN numbers with computer Service numbers.

    We need both. When it gets to the tuning point after the intitial R&D is done, we'll need a couple vehicles here.

    Definately down. I'd break into my rainy day bank account if need be.

    This going to remove the speed limiter on non Z PCMs? Also, where is this ECM service # and how do we get to it?

    it will:
    remove limiters
    modify fuel curves
    adjust shift points
    allow for camming porting etc etc etc
    you get the idea

    again on a stock car they got 45HP increase..

    Can they provide a dyno graph for their 45 hp claim?

    Re: Westers Will Hack the Northstar NOW!

    if your in then do as i said
    i really need to get this ball rolling please provide me with the info i asked for
    the serivce number is as i said on the computer itself and it will state it is a service number THIS IS NOT THE PART NUMBER!

    Jadcock= they state the claim but OBVIOUSLY b/c this is a different version of the northstar used in the DTS the numbers wont be the exact same but when it comes down to it, its the only possibility PERIOD! once this is hacked we can add cams, pistions etc etc etc to a stock car that in itself is worth it!

    Re: Westers Will Hack the Northstar NOW!

    I will look up this info tonight and send it to you. The PCM resides by the air filter assembly on a 2000 STS, correct?

    I would even put down a 20% deposit for the tune...

    Re: Westers Will Hack the Northstar NOW!

    It only took 1 day for them to do this? What happened to "30k worth of R&D"?

    Ask them for the before/after dyno on the DTS
