    Magnacharger tune

    Hello there, I have a holden Commodore SS (2000). In my country they call it Chevrolet Lumina SS. The problem im facing with this car is whenever i order parts i order for vettes or GT0's, since all share the same engine. i ordered the Magnacharger MP112 supercharger kit for corvette C5 LS1 99-04.
    the kit of course includes a reflash for the factory ECU.The problem is the Corvette's factory ECU is different from my car's ECU. Accordingly the tune they send wont work.
    Can anyone help me with a tune. I already have an HPtuners to use. But unfortunatly im not very acquainted with it. It would be great if some1 can help or even send me a rough map to start with.
    thank you.

    If you had EFILive, I'd be happy to help... with HPtuners, I can't do anything for you. Check with Frost in the tuning section...

    You may need a Corvette (1999-2004) or F-body(1999-2002) ECU and a Painless wiring harness to be succesful in making this work. It is hard to say since we have no pictures or anything to look at. Can you offer some more background on your car?

    I am not too familiar with the Aussie models so you may have to hit up some of the Australian LSX sites to find out how to get your computer to take the tune. You should have went with a Harrop instead of the Maggie in my opinion. Keep Australian parts on the Aussie cars. Take a snap of the engine bay and where the stock ECU is.

    The car comes with an LS1 engine and PCM in it... he doesn't need that. They just don't sell the blower kit with handheld tuner for the Holden...

    I understand the Maggies work just fine with the Commodores. Those engines come from Canada... However he bought a LS1 Vette Maggie Kit and is now having problems loading the pre-loaded tune into the PCM. I got thrown of a bit by the way he decribed it as a Lumina SS at first. I didn't see the other desription of what the car was.

    I doubt he knows anybody EFI Live did you see his location...

    hello, I dont know anyone with EFIlive. in my location there are very few tuners, and all are not familiar with this engine and its tuning.

    you can not consider the engine aussi, since i live in the middle east, the engine is chevrolet Ls1, the car is called Chevrolet Lumina SS. it doesnt have the holden badges, it has the chevrolet ones. this is a couple of pix:

    thanks
