    Couple things for 2008 CTS

    Hey Chris,

    Everyone praises you on the forums so naturally I'm coming to you. I need an ECM and Throttle Body for my 2008 CTS.

    VIN: 1G6DV57V980186993

    Could you quote me with shipping to ZIP: 32541?

    Thank you for your time!

    PS: I've read the ECM's come uncalibrated. Can I do this myself?

    Thanks again!

    You will need a dealer with a tech2 to program it

    there will also be a core charge that will cost you extra until you send back yours and we will credit you the core charge

    Unfortunately I won't be able to send the core back. I believe my mechanic scrapped it due to his own personal problems. I'll have to deal with him later but I need to get my car up and running.

    Will the dealer be able to program it without the vehicle there? Either way, do you mind giving me a ballpark of what the programming would cost so they don't make a fool of me? I'd appreciate it.

    Also, the price for the Throttle Body please. I'll definitely purchase the ECM from you.

    Thanks again Chris. Your reputation precedes you on the forums.

    we typically charge an hour of labor so $100-$150 is ballpark for programming a module

    the module cannot be programmed outside of the car (by dealers) ... tuners have special tools (and some dealers may have them too)
    but by the GM 'book' the car has to be there at the dealer and module installed in it for the programming to take place
