    Default Auto to manual (tune)

    Total newb so forgive me if this is all wrong.

    I'm looking to flash a 5.3 Vortec Gen3, with harness modified for 'standalone' operation, changing it from auto (4L60E) to manual.

    Can anyone help me out with a manual version of this, with vats, smog etc already removed?

    Post your tune ... difficult to offer suggestions without knowing what OS / PCM you are using.

    Thanks for the reply.

    It was suggested to me by the guys I bought the V2 from that I just obtain a manual version (GM made 4.8 and 5.3 Silverado with manual trans) and reflash using that tune, ignoring my original tune all together.

    btw~ sorry if this is posted in the wrong area admin.

    OK ... do you have a 512 Kb LS1-B PCM or a 1 Mb LS1-B PCM ? Are you using a DBC or DBW setup ? Does your wiring harness have Blue / Red PCM connectors, or Blue / Green PCM connectors.

    Again, difficult to assist without more information.

    For reference tunes - check out the www.tunefiledepot.com

    It's a 512 kb, red and blue, DBC, from an 01 Silverado 5.3 Vortec motor.

    Go to the website link in post #4 - download 2002 tunes using OS 12212156 - for both a 5.3 L truck and a Camaro equipped with a manual transmission.

    Use EFILive software to swap the transmission segments (Cal & Diagnostic) from the Camaro tune into the truck tune - this would become your base tune.

    Its a much better and easier option than trying to patch an auto file to ignore the fact that there's no auto trans anymore. Just save your stock file and use one of the ones Taz posted above.

    Sorry if this sounds dim, but can I just load the Camaro Man tune onto the 5.3 LM7 ecm and run it on the engine?

    You can try finding a 01-02 4.8 silverado manual tune, as I think there were no 5.3 engines in any trucks that came with a manual trans.
    1997 S10, 06 trailblazer SS LS2 swap, 4L70E trans, 76mm turbo. Factory ZQ8 suspension. 3.08, G80 w/a zexel. With a 0411 swap.
