I don't know about cadillackid, but I intend to. I'll probably post everything on GitHub, circuits and all. The circuits aren't hard, but finding the time to do all of this is.


I need another vacation....

I haven't been on this forum in forever.

You found out how to increase the HP? ECU reflash?

yeah it involves altering the rating code, some times the ESN and then the Horsepower.. it can be dangerous if you mismatch the ECM and the hardware.. but within limits its safe and works great...



im still learning and taking notes as to which combinations of settings yield safe power.. goign up within rating family is pretty easy.. ie if your engine label is 170,190,210. and you go form 170 to 210.. going beyond then its time to look at what hardware is different and determine whether its safe or not..


I recommend anyone going above famioly rating to install a Pyro and a scanner to watch fueling rates and HPOP data...

Heck...I'd suggest a pyro for just about any diesel.

The pyro is just plain fun, I drive and think “oh better watch my warp core temperature” when I’m hauling ass
