Oh look....GM found a purpose for all those extra LB7/LLY badges they still had in stock.

Actually, it looks like a nice truck. It sure as hell better get the mid 30s mileage on the highway, though. Forged crank and rods should help with the eventual performance applications. Interesting that its DOHC, too.

I had wanted one after seeing them all day at the plant. I had a chance to take some time and see how it feels. But I'm not feeling it the seats there on the floor like a Camaro or corvette. Unlike the cars were you drop down in the seat the truck you slid up into. But the steering wheel is in the way for buggier guys and long legs.

Anyone know what PCM the US Spec truck will be using? Is it the same as the Global truck? HPTuners has beta support for the Holden Colorado. I'm hoping it translates across to this guy as well.

Efilive already said that were going to have support for it. Problem solved

I expected that answer
Unfortunately it's not so cut and dry for us gassers who purchased years ago. I'd rather not pick up a new setup considering my tuning needs will be minor on the diesel side.

Per http://www.dieselworldmag.com/first-...olorado-beyond I'm hold holding my breath...

Quote:
GM has switched ECU or engine control units from Bosch control system to Continental. Bosch remains the supplier for the 2.0-liter diesel. Like that smaller motor, all the software controlling the engine is created in-house, then supplied to the controller maker to burn onto the silicon. This will be the first GM engine with Continental diesel engine controllers in the U.S., we’re told.
EDIT: I was able to eventually find it's a Continental E98.

For the minority of us who are interested in HPT support:
I have been in contact with them for about a week. After I provided the info I found last night they stated they'd likely be able to support it, but would need to test.

I guess I just don't understand. The best tuner on the market already has support, why go to a second rate tuner and wait to see if they can figure it out.

+1. And hoping they get it right. Asking for trouble.

He apparently already has an HPT which isn't so uncommon - HPT has a lot of users in the gasser world.

Absolutely right. I bought into HPT before I was aware EFILive was even a thing. The Gas world is also much more split on EFILive vs HPT. IMO HPT has a usability edge there. We'll see if that changes once I start playing around on the oil burner side. As I understand it, the roles may be reversed here.

A relative of mine does have EFILive, and I have tuned (LS platform) with it in the past. I don't have anything against it, I just haven't had a compelling reason to move considering my current investment.

Eventually I'll end up comparing functionality for this PCM between both platforms. If there's a good reason for me to purchase, I'll do so. That likely won't be until the warranty's up. I can't justify buying a new kit when my immediate needs are modest. Deleting DEF, correct tire sizes, maybe turning up very mildly if I get a wild hair.
