    Hmm ya it seems like if I had money to blow I would probably get one but I'm pretty sure I can change vins with dhp and the magnasteer setting things would be great because I frickin hate how it is now. The car accelerates so quickly the steering goes from stiff to loosey goosey in seconds and deffinately catches me off guard sometimes. I am also the only one I know that has a GM car besides my dads "VET" but that thing still has a bunch of warranty so hes not going to do a damn thing to it.

    Oh snap! I HATE that my steering wheel feels like turning a huge pirates of the carribean ship wheel through glazed butter! Drives me insane!

    mine was set to easy when i got it, after a new rack it defaulted to firm all the time. it used to be like butter at slow speeds, then firm up as you drove up to speed. i liked that. id like to have it back.

    Totally saving up for this then. I keep finding other stuff to spend money on in the meantime though! Guy selling brand new GMPP rear sway bar still in packaging for $35! Apparently ZZPerformance shipped two and didn't want it back because of shipping costs! Oh well... I'll let you know so we can do a group order. Hopefully we can get a few others on board!

    Yeah... Gm had to mess everything up with the new candi module adapters. The new tech2 kits I've been looking at all have a knock off of those included, so hopefully that works (not that I'm working on anything that new anyhow...haha) and thanks for the input!

    Mine was the more expensive version from buyobdtools that handles GM up to 2012 iirc. It has the Candi module and everything. I think it is just under $300 and freight was $70 because I got the one with the case and everything so it was a big package. I caught it on sale for $270. They may run another sale black friday or cyber Monday. You can get cheaper and save on shipping if you skip the case.

    Can you reprogram the mileage on a 2004 and up 5 button DIC with this? If so, this may be totally worth it.

    Sorry, I looked through my stuff and it came with a Candi module. Didn't try it out yet.

    You can not change mileage on the car or DIC.

    But........when you take a car to have the DIC reprogrammed, don't they use one of these to change the mileage reading. Or is swapping in a 5 button and having everything be legal completely impossible?

    I do know that most module flashing requires access to gm's software portal online, which is about $150 for three days. I think that's why most of us don't know. Unless I had a bunch of clients lined up that i could pass the cost on to, it's not worth it.

    I have used mine some more and done some live data logging while driving. It seems to work as a real GM tech2 from the dealer did back when I worked at the dealer. No complaints. Especially for the price. I cannot adjust the speedo on my truck for bigger tires. That its the TCM and I have an allison transmission. I was able to change it in the ABS module, but that doesn't drive the speedometer. I don't know if this is true for other vehicles.

    Thanks for the info. Been wanting to get one of these, but wasn't sure about long term reliability.
