no. its a different ECM. You can call OTTP and see if they will send you a 2.4 PCM with the tune on it though....

Get a custom tune. It is worth the money.

I have a question. I noticed the 1/4" hose lines, 1/8 NPT drill tap, and barb fittings being used to install the Cobra H/E. Did you tap into the end tanks of the H/E to install those bleeder lines? If so, how did you prevent fluid from flowing through those lines instead of through the H/E? Is it absolutely necessary to install those bleeders or can I just do the standard bleeding of the H/E in a bucket of coolant? What is the normal method of plumbing a Cobra H/E on the Cobalts with a surge tank instead of the stock filler neck?

yep right into the end tanks. the bleeder lines ensure air escapes the heat exchanger. if bled properly you dont really need to worry about these, however if you're using a surge tank from a cobalt, you might as well utilize them since the surge tank has the bleeder inlet. a small amount of fluid will always pass through the bleeders, but simply due to the amount of fluid circulating most of it passes through the heat exchangers as it should.

btw im back if you guys need any assistance, pm me or ask away here

Trifecta. Its effectively Vince (and whoever else is a vendor of him can do tunes as well, though most tunes are received directly from Vince) sending a canned tune, then you send him back a data log (using hardware/software he provides), then he edits the canned tune to be specific to your vehicle, so its like any other custom tune sent through email for HPT on this forum.

He plans on releasing DIY tuning software in the future, but he's a busy guy, and doesn't have a specific release date at all. Im not sure how much else he wants me to share, since he hasnt made any of this info public yet.

they are with '07 and up i think? at least the LAP 2.2 is.
they announced though that they will never release tuning software for the '05-'06 2.2.
