Sunday, September 07, 2014 12:06 PM
I`m about to install a supercharger kit from a 2007 cobalt ss into my 2004 2.2 ecotec cavalier ,and want to know if I can use the cobalts ecu on my L61 and if it plugs right in or if I will have to retune my existing ecu?

Thanx guys...

It will not work. You have to retune your stock one.

Go to an exhaust shop, have them weld in an o2 bung. Install wideband. The m62 kit is a bolt on setup and shouldn't take more than a few hours to install if you have any kind of mechanical aptitude. Then you just need to take it to a dealer for the reflash or have somebody do a road tune with hptuners.

Get a spare pcm and send it to these guys so you don't have to wait.

It will get you on the road and works good enough for the time being. That being said you can do things in stages.

Maybe do the wideband one weekend, the supercharger install the next. The key is planning. Go over every part, bolt, hose you may need and have it all the before you do the install. If that's the case it should be easy to do in a weekend if your at all mechanically inclined.
