    Default VATS removal for swap

    Hello,

    Does the VATS switch work in V8?

    This is for a swap

    Thanks

    I'm not sure it even works in V7 for a swap, I think it will allow an engine start in a real GM vehicle (that hasn't been VATS linked) but not standalone.
    Sorry I don't have a definitive answer on that, maybe someone who has done one in the past can chime in.

    In my experience the VATS System wants to connect with the BCM to be happy, at least on all the models, if its a 15, 15.5 or 16 E86B then you need a dealer tool/procedure to enable the VATS System or all you get is a dead key, no crank.

    I have tried a bunch of different things, none of which have worked for a 15-16 ecm swap unless its a full dealer/tool/MDI relearn procedure, ecm set-up.

    Good Luck
