I'd have to search for it, but IIRC he's in a lawsuit with Derive power systems over it

Ah yes. Tuning. The only industry based on stealing other people's work. And then calling out the people that steal other people's work. Rinse repeat lets do it again.

Why us old hackers just tagged things with, FIRST !! Saved all the crying down the road.

Maybe he's inserting his phone number into a torque table as a watermark. ;-)

Tony, are you going to get into the unlocking process yourself or just the tuning side of the L5P? Will you be using HPT?

Well looks like things remain in a grey area. No full exemption was granted today for onboard ECU hacking. IE: still can't reflash your radio.. lol

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/1...-go-far-enough

EFF proposed to expand the exemption for vehicle maintenance and repair to cover all devices that contain software, and to cover legal modification and tinkering that goes beyond repair. We cited a broad range of examples where Section 1201 interfered with people’s use of their own digital devices. But the Office expanded the exemption only to “smartphone[s],” “home appliance[s],” and “home system[s], such as a refrigerator, thermostat, HVAC or electrical system.”

I doubt it. Once you amertise in costs with loss of warranty it's retarded to even consider it...

Couldnt be more wrong people are lined up waiting for it. Just did a trans for a tuned L5P. Most people who can afford an L5P can afford to fix it. No ones even balked at the tuning price they just want it. I’m getting calls almost daily for people ready to build their trans to hold the tuning and just had another website order for tuning Friday so...with the money everyone spends on these trucks on performance parts it might be a lot for some people but $5000 isn’t really much money at all to most of them.

Im not doubting you Evan as you have no reason to be anything but transparent and honest but $5,000 isn't that bad but to me being in California I wouldn't delete an L5P $10,000 for tuning and trans is um not where i spend money anymore. I mostly would be interested to hear first hand how those that have tuned them are pleased they did so.

When I saw the pricing i didnít think iíd sell any or even know many people interested in it I was wrong. I have friends with shops down south all with mulitable pre orders. After really thinking about it I can see why I was wrong for the reasons stated in my first comment. Everyone Iíve warned about the size of the expenses that could come with an engine failure without a warranty has said the the same thing the basically didnít care. Obviously some will not pay it or want the risk but so far many are more then ready and willing.

Ok guys....

I moved the conversation about Sinister Diesel's complete faux pax here: https://www.duramaxdiesels.com/forum...ad.php?t=81079

And as for the Iowa vs North Carolina "measuring" contest, give it a rest already.

Look, if someone wants to shell out huge $$ to tune an L5P, is that really any different than all the money we've ALL spent making our trucks faster and more powerful?
