I'm sure the fuel maps will need work, boost mapping will need redone and some other things will need to be changed. I'm prepared to do this stuff.

I know the OTS map isn't going to work, but it's where i'm starting out.
You could always pick up a tactrix cable and a $70 map for your mods

I have the cable. $70 for a map that was tuned for my car would be great. $70 for a more aggressive OTS map isn't what I want. I'm going to get it close and safe to drive then it's off to dyno land for some fine tuning.

I will see this weekend how much effect this front mount has on the current boost and that will help with the re working of the boost map for the new bcs.

Wish AEM wasn't so dam expensive

Well buddy, the Cobb AP cost MUCH more than any OTS XPT maps would ever cost. I'm running a map with the GM BCS and stage 2. Only thing different is the FMIC. Good luck.

IMHO the cobb ap is too much money for the accesability you have but oh well. I installed the intercooler over the weekend and on the current map boost has not changed. Kind of wierd but it will all come out in the end.

I'll keep you updated on what I do. Running pretty good on 18psi with the front mount.

Just got mine from Fedex today. So the general concensus is 5/32" vacuum hose? Just want to make sure before I go to Autozone or NAPA.

I ordered the solenoid and pigtail kit. I have to wait untill tuesday to get the parts. After I install the parts, how bad will it drive? Could i drive it to the dyno shop?

Stay completely out of boost or everything will be way wonky. Someone had posted a how-to rough tune to get to the tuner. You might want to search this thread for that info else the tuner might have a hard time unless they're familiar with adjusting the WG duty cycle.

Thanks. My tuner said he knows how to tune with the solenoid. I just have a 20 mile drive to get there. As long as I dont drive like an idiot with an untuned car i should be fine.

You could also run one of the vacuum lines directly from the compressor nipple to the wastegate for the drive and when you get to the tuner hook the lines up correctly so you won't have to worry about it.

You will be running only wastegate spring boost on this setting so if you still have the vf39 you will run roughly 6-12psi max

You're going to need a GMBCS specific map. I am unsure if Braden makes one, but there is no way you'll be able to run a map tuned for the stock BCS.

I'm just using the GMBCS stg 2 map right now since I sold all my turbo stuff. Waste of money that was since I've got the map but will never use it.

I like it, power is pretty smooth except from 2k-3k where I've got jumpiness, but I'm having some hesitation not related to the map. Not sure what it is either. The BCS holds boost to redline, and boost builds MUCH quicker.

Rockauto sent me this discount code 955559843702 on 3/13. Thought I'd share it with the community for anyone who hasn't swapped to the GM BCS yet.

Anyone using this with a cobb map? Do I get rid of the restrictor pill when I install one of these? Do I have to have something changed with the cobb map?

You use straight line with the GM, no restrictor pill, and yes your map will have to be modified

Hmm ok. How would I go around to getting an alternate map? I don't have the street tuner or know anything about that.

I'm having one of these installed next week - hopefully it'll provide a more solid boost line than the stock 2 port.

Hope you have some tuning to go along with it.

forgive me in advance if this is a noobish question but why not just use a bleed type mbc to help eliminate boost spike? I know that mbc are often thrown on cars for people who just want more boost and dont realize the effects of raising boost without properly tuning other aspects of the engine but if you work with a tuner and tune your car with a mbc i dont see why it wouldnt be safe or a good idea?
thanks
