I would be willing to bet a small chocolate milkshake from chick-fli-a that it was someone internal that let that information out...
GM looks good to the EPA the way they have been making things harder for us aftermarket enthusiasts!
Unlike Fomoco and fiat

I agree...

Lots of tuners with new tables, cheap options for it loading tunes, lots of available hard parts, have them figured out is the biggest thing now, etc...

Lol sure because people would rather pay 50,000 for a two year old truck that will break cranks and pistons(oh and the cp4 grenade) or get a new truck with 0% financing at 63,000.

Strong words considering the l5p hasnít even really been tested yet to see how it will last with power thrown at it.

FWIW all years break cranks lml seems to be the most durable in that regard. Or at least the cheapest.

CP4 is what it is. Spend $1500 to fix it or roll the dice. Many havenít had issues.

Tuneable LML for a fraction of the cost of tuning the l5p currently? Iíll take the lml. Oh wait, I did.

There hasn't been this much good smack talk based on new information on DD in years! I love it!

Now that the L5P is unlocked, I'm starting to consider upgrading from my 2003. Not that I can afford to, but I can consider all I want for free!

I'd love to know more technical details on how they got unlocked, but I bet that won't be common knowledge for years still. But this is exciting!

The guy who figured it out must be checking in early on that retirement plan.

So you've been wasting the last 10 years on here discussing these junk crank breakers then???

Like stated earlier, L5P nut swingers have nothing to swing around yet but internet posts and we all know how valid they are...

Well you never know. They could be really good best yet. Too early to tell IMO. I bet we never see single tunes out for less than $1000 though with its current ecm. Too much going in there as of now to justify the work to do it.

X2. How long will parts last down the road. So many people going crazy about this. To me I'd wait a year for the bugs to get worked out and let others find the weak points. I have a gut feeling trans wont last on the street.

I think you forget stock for stock the L5P will drive circles around an LML towing or unloaded. Even a tuned LML wonít touch an L5P going up a grade towing. Sorry theyíre just better.

Please explain how. My lml tows my 16k boat great and itís stock other than intake. But Iíve been contemplating moving to an l5p for a while. Iíve even thought of making the jump to for just because of the interior and the fact that they are ahead of the game in bells and whistles compared to gym
