    Stock LS1 PCM and HP

    I think I read somewhere that the stock PCM is only good to 500hp or something like that. Lets say I wanted to put a 427 LS7 motor and TT Kit in my car, what would I need to do computer wise (besides get it dyno tuned)? Would I need a PCM out of a C6Z06? or would my LS1 PCM be fine (just need to get it tuned)?

    that's a high dollar setup; if it were my project it'd be Bigstuff3.

    How do those work? Do they replace my ECU? Do you know how to tune them?

    yes, and yes

    It's an engine management system that is made for the things that you would be looking for whereas the stock PCM was made for an OEM mill.
