    I'll just keep my old GM that can be tuned. I hate that everything in your vehicle knows what every other thing is doing all the time. I'll stick with my LS1B and E38's controllers.

    With emissions not a concern- its amazing how much more fun my Honda mt6 is to drive, GM can keep their products.

    GM Didn't own the base calibrations for Quadrajets, why would EFI coding be any different?

    GM owns the original software. If you purchase an unchanged program or software update by or from GM, that is totally legal,if you alter that yourself then flash over anything in an ECU, then that becomes yours. If you sell that, it would be illegal at that point. This is what the DMCA states, which is a copyright act.
    right act.
