It goes to get the rest of the codes (hopefully) read tomorrow. If this works this time, we are home free. If not, I am having them hardwire the starter and alternator and I will figure it out in Florida. I plan on going to Pony Wars.

hmmm...:(

Won't be able to make it, at least this year. Would have enjoyed making that trip, too...

Have fun, those who ARE going!

speedster,
Did you get recent rwhp and torque numbers from a dyno?

Any updates on the computer?

Fingers crossed for you!

Well that sucked. :( They took the car down to a local unnamed dealer. The lead troubleshooter was hooking up the reader to get the codes, when the shop manager came out and kicked everyone out. So back to square one. I understand liability, but it seems to be the simplest things that are the most complicated. I support GM 100%. I really do. This is just frustrating. So...I am going to have NRE rewire the alternator and starter circuits and ship it. I am done with the PCM/BCM combo for now. I will get this back to Florida and in time figure it out once and for all.

Hats off to the NRE guys for really trying to make it work. It is tough when you don't have the one hidden code that is making this occur. C'est La Vie...

Actually, it was not the dyno on this one. We were really worried about popping a head gasket, so based on our cylinder pressure calculations, we killed it on a 28 psi pull at 6K rpm. That is actually pretty insane for those 4 bolt heads.

I know it sucks, but bring it home! If you can pilot a RC boat in Florida from a iPhone in California... I have no doubt you'll figure this out!

Thanks N !! With some tweaks we could drive it with our stuff and an iPhone. Talk about a liability issue...

BTW, I found that our small unmanned surface vehicles are classified as 'floating debris'... Pretty funny.

Well you're doing pretty good then. If I made them they'd be classified as ..... sediment.
