I sure hope I'm wrong about this trans, but not holding my breath. I do expect we'll be seeing the first 6L80 swap quickly.

There is in the base truck. Not with the diesel.

The US arms of GM appear to have warranty concerns and don't trust people to know how to drive properly.

EFILive posted numbers that were around +45 HP, and pushing torque over 400 lb/ft.

Transmission tuning support is also available with EFILive. Switchable tuning on the fly development is about to move to in-vehicle testing.

That's awesome if the switchable tuning works!

Any updates on switchable lml tunes?

Out of curiosity, anyone know what the sensor in the (I'm guessing) downpipe is? If it is the downpipe, nothing I know of would make sense.

Wouldn't be IAT as it's before the intercooler. Can't be a pyrometer as it's on the intake side.

The only thing I'm guessing it may be is some boost reference? I know these things have a 'throttle body' for lack of a better term. I'm assuming what us gassers know as manifold pressure would be behind the throttle. Are they measuring both fore and aft pressure? If boost gets too high in front of the throttle they close the turbo vanes down?
