    I was just kinda curious if Custom OS take a while to come out after regular pcm support. I've actually already done the 12200411pcm swap that is Custom OS supported, so I don't really have a reason to go back to the 98-99 pcm, but like I said, just curious

    Thanks Erik, your support is very much appreciated.
    You are right about not announcing things earlier. Basically we were trying to see if we could get V1 to play the game with these PCM's, but it will not. It's a combination of issues with the Vortec and V1, even though they are both VPW comms, the buffers in V1 aren't big enough with the messaging needed for the Vortec, same problem with the 5cyl PCM too.

    Cheers,
    Ross

    Yeah, well when I heard V2 did standalone (eventually), I knew I had to have it as I dont have a laptop so whenever I have to flash my truck it is a wiring pain.

    Yes, the stream page has been updated to include the Vortec.
    Price is $1995, this covers 1998+ Vortec (V8 and V6), but not the earlier 1996-97 PCM which is different again (It has the big 5pin plug on it too) , That is slotted in to be added into support list at some stage, it's a little weird the 1996-97 PCM, it will take a fair amount of changes in our software to support it.

    Regarding the price for the stream, looking at the other non EFILive options for the Vortec, you would have paid the same amount by approx the 15th tune if you were to go the other way, so it's a pretty reasonable deal. Oh, of course you could also just choose to pay per license too.
