Why wont a C5 ecm work? what is running the C5-R motors members are using?tonto said:Interesting, however making it work requires a ecm (engine control module) which should prove even more interesting as no one has cracked the codes on the current C6 ecm SNIP
Correct, the 1997 thru 2004 ecm's are programable, as we installed a C5R engine with the correct heads which also requires a custom intake, only $1,500, and a major job as the valve covers are different and a hassle relocating the coils. Custom headers, it goes on and on.Sabot said:Why wont a C5 ecm work? what is running the C5-R motors members are using?
someone is very full of themselves... uke:tonto said:Bold talk, will be interesting to here from someone that installs this engine in a C5 as in the C5/C6 business. Unfortunatly you seem to have no facts to back up this claim.
Fortunatly I do as this part # is not availible as a valid part #, and no price or history or anticipated date of availablity of it in GM's Trax parts locator, which as a few of GM Performance Parts deals form the past follow tradition.
As a engine part # does not come with a engine control module, none do.
and as a fact there is none, is there?
Yep a C5 with a Holley, PLEASE spare the thought.
This install is major sugerory please tell all involved with installing this engine, a stand alone ecm is the tip of the iceburg.
Bring a lot of patients and more $ than buying the real deal for a wanna be 2006 Z.
And will call my friend at GM on monday, which will be a dead end to this story.
PLEASE get verifiable info, not another rumor. As this one is.
The bottom line, (ain't nuthin like the real thing) baybee.

Tonto was a good actor but never had his own show.
I'm sorry my friend, but DJ's been around this forum a lot longer than you. His credentials are authentic (that, or he's one of the best fiction writers in the world. But I doubt this, since I've never seen his name on the NYT best seller's list. So I guess I've got to go with "authentic" afterall).tonto said:As a forum, hey thats the deal. Sorry I don't take this litely as I do it for a living.
Transplanting engines in C5's is a ECM deal, so please be aware of that, before you do anything. As the saying goes, anything to good to be true, usually is. And to make it correct, hey its only money. yours
