I can get factory ECM`s for $350.00 plus 150 core all day, with tunes or with factory tuning. dealership are a rip off and they know nothing about how a tuned truck should run. they might have factory training, but most know nothing about performance. where do you think the engineers get their data from when they keep on raising the levels of our trucks??? surely not from their experience on breaking parts and making them last on the track. Just ask any 6.0 owner that had the factory fix their issues. LOL .

the only safe programing for the duramax is EFI live, period, from a tuner that know what he is doing. IMO. because I have ran both and have lots of friends with tuned ECM`s

X2...big difference in a Factory Tech & Performance Tech information...as I have found during my great ride with EFI Live & my discussions with Diesel Performance shop Owners who are current & past sled/race track competitors ,)

It was on a 1st gen d-max. 01-03 I believe. I believe those are a bit pricier than later models.
- on new oe ecms there is no core at least from the gm dealers ive worked for.

I'm thinking a cold air intake will be enough for now, I might go with a chip if I find I need it with a bigger trailer than what I have.

You'll be plenty fine stock for what you're doing now...but as you get the itch for a little performance, the list is endless...enjoy!

I have ridden In a few and driven one duramax with a programmer.. All I can say is holy crap that's a lot of power. Not sure what brand it is but I'll see the next time my buddy comes over. Truck felt like my 426 hp camaro. But then torque does that doesn't it? :-))

I have 540/1033 at my wheels and yes it can push you back pretty far, I am running out of fuel and as soon as I get that taken care of I should be at 700HP. just hope the lower end can hold out. buddy at work has a 24v p-pumped dodge twined putting out 900hp runs the 1/4 in 11.3 . now that is fast, he is thinking about n20 to hit 1200 and put his times into the low 10`s
