Maybe.
I had to try one for myself. I just got it in and installed Tuesday. I have to say its better than the Predator, but not like everyone was talking about. I will give it time to learn. Now if I went from stock to the Westers. My god, there would have been a difference. But going from a quality programmer to the Westers, its not that big of a gain. But I will give Lyndon credit, he knows what he is doing.

Cool! We knew you would like it if you tried it!

I am still debating on using Lyndon's tuning on my duramax. He gave me full credit for the other truck's tune. Cost of Lyndon's new tune for the dmax would be $120. Now, I am just waiting for the price of PCM's to come down. Last quote for a 2003 Duramax PCM was $1,500.


I am using the Superchip Dmax tuner for now (cheapest best/best cheapest dmax tuner at the moment).


Enjoy!

did you let the other ECM go with the other truck? If not, what did you do when you got rid of it? Edited by: 1BADHD

I paid the $170 core charge for the pcm and kept both. When I traded the 2001 I reinstalled the stock PCM and kept Lyndon's PCM. Too bad the 2001 PCM will not work on the 2003! BTW, if I send Lyndon's PCM back he will send the core charge amount.
The problem at the moment is not Lyndon's work (Dmax tune) but the fact that the dealership's service department is extremely anal. Plus, I am being paranoid and don't want my 100k warranty voided.

I purchased the ECM from Westers on a group buy. So I got 20% off the price. I had the Predator programmer before I got the Westers ECM. i thought I had teh best there was and was very happy with it. But the Westers just keeps getting better. I knocked off 1 second on my 0-60 times with the Westers over the Predator. I know 0-60doesnt tell you it oulls 9,000lbs better. But that goes to show there is more rwhp and torque there. Any ohter specific questions about it, let me know.

No stackable chips for gassers. If you guys want a site on 6.0 and the other LS1 small blocks. Go to www.LS1Tech.com Them boys over there can tell you anything you want to know.

You can get a dual octane tune if you want!! You can get a 87/91 tune. But....you wont get the full potential of a all out 91-93 octane HOT TUNE. Here is Westers site.... http://westers_garage.eidnet.org/Index2.htm

You do not have to run 91/93 octane fuel with a Westers unless you order the Hot Tune as 1BADHD stated above. I run 93 in my truck all the time and I only have the 87 tune. Will be upgrading shortly to the Hot Tune. More power...
