I have the Corsa with stainless works and catless on 10 lbs of boost. It's godly loud. But corsa did well with the muffler design and placement. So still no drone. 

Any videos of your setup?

I'm not worried about warranty. Id rather build it my way. If i blow an engine, just a great excuse to pull it and build it back bulletproof. And still cheaper than callaway/hennessey. To each their own tho.

 

HP tuners ecm is on the way. Ill probably get the Whipple on in the next few weeks. 

You sent HP Tuners a new ECM and kept your original, right?  What did you do to the ECM prior to shipping it to them?  Their instructions refer to performing the Replace ECM Function in VCM Scanner for the stock ECM.  Was this something you needed to do to the new ECM you sent them?

nt them?

I sent HP the new ecm. You have to give them your VIN. They unlock it and send back. Nothing needs to be done on the ecm before sending. Its an exchange, you dont get the exact one you send them back anyways. To finish the process, once you get the ecm back, you use the vcm scanner, download the info off the stock ecm, peform the physical swap, and re-upload.

Thank you, that is what I thought but just wanted to ask anyway.

Does anyone have any custom tuning they would be willing to share? Whipple and ProCharger supply a canned tune, but they are limited/minimal to stay within emissions regs. Obviously a tune is specific to vehicle, just figured it may be worth an ask and more discussion. May even need a new post instead of under this one.

Having a shared file for your truck would not be a good idea. You really need to get a tune done at a shop to make sure your good to go.

This might be a dumb question... Should I have the Chevy dealer use my tablet to do the tuning with the HP Tuners software loaded on it to make sure I retain ownership of the credits and the tune? Or, does that really matter?

Looking good!  Give us a full report once you get her on the road. 

The 6.2 is pretty awesome naturally aspirated. I had high expectations, and Whipple didnt let me down. The power is pretty crazy, especially in a 4 door pickup. No check engine lights, leaks, or issues whatsoever.

 

Id say what impresses me just as much as a full throttle pull, is the torque at lower rpms. On the first run, i idled around the neighborhood and barely had to touch the throttle.

 

Haven't got used to the trans yet. Seemed like it wasnt sure which gear it wanted. Punching it from a 20mph or so roll and she seemed to hesitate on which gear to grab. I havent heard much about tuning the trans yet, but i can see the value of dialing it in. As is will take some getting used to.

Its pretty crazy how many wire harnesses, coolant lines, etc are crammed into the engine bay. I organized mine best i could, but theres just a lot in there.

 

Going to add a couple more lines with a catch can too.

 

Anyone mess with the trans tuning yet?

      I've had this issue for two months but it has been minimal until recently. While going anywhere above 30mph, at around 1200rpm if I give it about quarter throttle to half throttle i will hear a clanking/knocking noise. I have recorded it with my phone but you are unable to hear it at all. The other day while merging on the highway it made the noise much worse than it ever has. I am wondering if anyone has had this before, I know some of the 3.0 DuraMax guys have had it, but has anyone with the 6.2 had an issue similar to this. I will be taking it to the dealership tomorrow.

      Hey everyone, I recently purchased a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. It’s a 4x4 Denali with the 6.2L and ultimate package. Overall it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a truck and more.
       
      I live and work in South Carolina, but I’m originally from Upper Michigan (Yooper, eh). Husband to an amazing wife and father to two busy boys.

      I joined the forum to get some insight into maintaining my truck as well as some tips for upgrading smaller items.

      So I've tuned my truck with and it has made a difference from what I can tell. A couple of questions, however.
      1. Is there any way to truly fix the hard downshift from 3-2 and what I call lagging going from 2-3 under acceleration? I installed the 91 octane tune, disabled AFM, speed limiter and changed the shift points from 2-3. It seems like the shift point pressure is too much. The RPM's spike when i'm easy on the throttle after a stop.
      2. There is an option to change the axle ratio via the tuner which I thought was impossible because the axle is ratio is mechanically fixed, yes? I think I have the 3.23 but I am not 100% sure
      3. Side note, I have an Air Raid intake tube, k&n filter, installed a catch can and did a muffler delete. I took out the flapper valve out as well. Truck runs and performs better (sounds awesome too). When I go to pass cars on the highway, I can easily break 100 and you can tell the engine still has a lot left. I truly believe that this truck's engine life has been extended greatly after disabling AFM. Thanks guys.

      I dropped the truck of at the dealer this afternoon to have the Whipple installed.  They claim it will take 11 hours, so I should have it back on Friday.  
      I installed a Borla True Dual S Type cat-back exhaust with the optional resonators to bring the volume down a bit.  It really sounds good!
      I ordered a new ECM from RockAuto for $200 and sent that to HP Tuners to be modified.
      The Whipple took less than a month to be delivered, so I was a caught off guard when I got the shipping notification and “had to” (read: wanted to) rush to get everything set up for the install.
      I want to maintain the good relationship with the dealer I bought the truck from, in hopes that, if there are any warranty issues with the truck that could be questionably related, they will work with me. That, and they have been good to me on the other mods I have had done. It also has the Trail Boss lift with an extra inch to level the front, new wheels with 35X11.50R20 Ridge Grapplers and it has Road Armor Stealth bumpers on the front and rear.
      I am excited for the the outcome!
