cracked PCM / tuner?

do the 8 speeds get ability to tune through PCM/ OBD port, unlike older years which the TCM has o be sent out for shifting changes?

WOW!
Thanks for that.
I wonder - for street use on 93 octane - was that $$ and violating the pcm to a dealer, worth drive-ability gain?
Or tenths quicker at the drag strip?
what does your experience say?

You have got to run good Gas period. Yes Johan is doing excellant email tunes. I know a car that should run a very nice "Low 11" when the tracks open. As long as track prep is there. He is still working on the magic diet.

thanks. Johan said he can wake them up, but cost and having the ECM integrity change, is a personal choice if it's "worth it" or not.
Being a street only car, I think waiting for the warranty at least is a good idea. Maybe parts required to tune will cost less as it ages to.
