    That's exactly what I'm looking for actually, I understand they are identical. May see if I can buy a 4.8 manual ecm and get it that way~ was hoping someone might have it already, but I guess not.

    Yes you could. You would need to repin the PCM connectors in your harness to match the Camaro PCM pinouts. The MAF and VE would need to be corrected for the 5.3 L. The Camaro uses a returnless fuel rail, if the 5.3 L is a 1999 - 2003 it would have came with a return style fuel rail - this could also be adjusted.

    Can pretty much do anything you want ... just takes time and money.

    If your harness is setup for a truck tune, then leave it be and run a truck OS. I wouldnt buy another PCM just to get the tune from it, better off seeing if someone can post the tune for you or if you could pay someone a few bucks for it.

    And dang it! My buddy has an 01 Silvy with the 4.8L and a manual, but I havent read the tune from it! Ill text him tomorrow and figure out where he is, could be Spokane and I could get it this weekend or he could be back home in Alaska. It should be pretty easy to take a 4.8L manual tune, change the VE and volumetric settings to mirror the 5.3 and be done with it. Does anyone else have one of those tunes, should be pretty straightforward to adjust it for the 5.3.

    I'm happy to pay for that tune.

    I'm selling the engines here in the UK with the harnesses modified to standalone (3 wire hook-up), and nobody wants auto, as you'd expect here in the UK. Pretty much everything is LM7 5.3 FBC, and I'm doing about 6 a month so that tune will be seeing some use.

    Whilst I modify the harnesses myself and I have a Flashscan to remove vats etc etc, I have no interest in tuning beyond reflashing these ecms for the standalone use.

    Get ahold of Taz. He has what you desire. Perhaps a Private Message?

    Again, difficult to assist without more information.

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

    You're referencing a 4 year old post. EFILive never owned or managed tune file depot, but the owner has taken it down.

    You'll find links to other resources using the search feature.

    Cheers

    The resources from the original site (which was owned by a third party) have been moved to another site (which is owned by a fourth party), see here:
