As a consumer, the EZ Lync platform concerns me as well. With EFILive, once the controller is licensed, I can swap tunes all day with no internet. They could even go out of business. But the EZ Lync...

Depends on how lifted [emoji14] Lift it high enough and you could stuff a Cat under the hood.

I'd think most of the smaller diesels from cars would fit. Not sure you'd get a full size I6 or V8 in...

If you don't like driving your Duramax, something has gone terribly wrong. Sure, if one is in poor shape and the steering is sloppy and stiff (it can be both!) and the brakes are weak and the tune is...

As far as I know all the functionality is in the 2006 OS already, and if the PDM you get is used and has TPMS enabled already, you won't even need a Tech2. Just plug it in, key cycle a couple times...

There's also the one currently in your truck with the bad solenoid. That's what I'd do. Stuff rags around it in case metal scale flakes off as you hammer the "tool" on.

If you wait long enough, BBT will be a classic. I think the GMT800 will be like the old square body Chevy's. At least those are the vehicles that I think will become classics.

From what I have seen of most radio's protection circuits, if there is a short on any one speaker, ALL speakers are turned off to protect the radio. The interface module could be the problem, and if...

Found out where the coolant is going on my Suburban: into the oil. So probably a head gasket, because it's a slow loss (1/2 gallon per 10,000 miles). Could be a cup? Hose is soft in the morning, but...

X2, remove the Edge temporarily. While removing it, look over the pins on the factory connectors closely to ensure they aren't bent or pushing out the back of the connector.

You can't buy just one stud, I've been down this road. I roached 2 studs and had to buy a whole new kit.

No, I don't know you real well, but that won't stop me from poking at you. Surely you recognize that about me from our previous interactions. The timing discussion was highly entertaining for me.
