ZZP LNF Turbo PCM

SKU: ZZ-LNFPCM-SENDING

$149.99 Sale price

Core Charge
Regular price $149.99

The ZZP LNF turbo PCM brings the performance of your turbocharged Cobalt to the level that the factory should have released it with. Buying from ZZP ensures nearly instant response on emailed questions, fast turn around, prompt core refunds, and a phone number you can call if you need to. The ZZP PCM is backed by a company you can trust. Here at ZZP, we own our own chassis dyno ensuring the maximum performance on our products.

With just a tune, we can add about 40whp and 80 ft lbs. Typical dyno numbers are 280whp and 320-340 ft lbs depending on what clutch the car has. If the car has a stock clutch we reduce the torque a little to keep it from slipping.

-The stock 5 speed transmission is a "F35". We offer our "F40" 6 speed conversion, if you have it, the PCM will need to be tweaked to correct the speedometer.
-First gear boost reduction helps to maintain traction.
-We can program the PCM for your stock sensors or the optional GM Stage 1 sensors. The third option is that we can include both sensors/pigtails and have the PCM setup for them. This requires cutting the factory wires and soldering in the new connectors. The last choice is for plug/play adapters along with the 3 bar sensors. These do not require cutting or soldering. Simply plug them in to the existing connectors and you are ready to go. We highly recommend installing the GM Stage 1 sensors along with the PCM because the factory sensors have been known to fail on stock boost levels, so when our 1.0 file increases the boost the chance of the factory sensors failing is higher.

-The stock air box holds the MAF sensor, an aftermarket intake will relocate the MAF in it, and for an aftermarket blow off valve to blow off to the atmosphere without the car running poorly the MAF should be relocated in the lower charge tube as a "Blow Through" design. We have a file and a lower charge pipe to make it simple for you to do this. We can not guaranty files for aftermarket MAF tubes that are not our off the shelf units.

-We can make the boost come in more smooth to help clutch life, or if you already have an upgraded clutch, then we can have the boost come in quicker. The stock clutch can not handle a full hard hitting boost PCM file without slipping.

1.0 files do not come with any tech or programming support for changes or issues outside 1.0 tuning parameters.

Core Charge: We can ship you a used or new ECU core that you can simply swap with your factory ECU. If we ship you a used ECU (and TCU (automatic trans)) core then you would have to pay a refundable core charge which is returned to you when you ship us back your original core(s). If you want a brand new GM ECU core, you are charged for it with us not expecting you to return one. If you returned your stock used core we would offer you an in store credit for it. If you want to avoid paying a core charge you can either ship us your core(s) to flash and return, or if you have HPTuners we can email you a file to upload yourself. If you select "I'm sending in my core first" your order will be held until we receive your core(s) to flash. If your car has an automatic transmission, we would need your ECM and TCM cores so we can flash both units OR you would need to select "Refundable ECU and TCU core charge". Please ship it/them to "2450 28th St. SW, Wyoming, MI 49519" Attn your ZZP order #. Saturn Note: We require your core to be read/tweaked and returned to you. Core charge option is not available for Saturn models.

Email me a file: This option requires access to HPTuner software. After placing your order, you will need to read the current file and send it to us for editing. We will then email you a new file. **you will get a detailed email with full instructions to complete this process shortly after placing your order.

FAQ

1. Can I change your PCMs with my tuning software?
Yes. We do not lock our PCMs. In fact, we will assist you with the tuning of our 1.0 file if you need help. You can email us your .hpt file and we'll help you if you get stuck. We are familiar with all of the features found in HP tuners and other tuning software.

2. How much HP will I gain?
HP varies from car to car. On most setups you can expect to gain 35 WHP. Our PCMs are setup to deliver the maximum level of safe HP for a given set of modifications.

3. Will this PCM void my warranty?
Our PCMs are not distinguishable from stock by the dealer.

4. What if I don't like something about my PCM?
Cars of the same year and type can vary. If you receive your PCM and don't like something with it; simply ship the PCM back within 30 days and we'll make the change at no charge. All you'll owe is the return shipping money.

5. Will I pass emissions with this PCM?
Yes. This PCM does not alter emissions.

6. How strict are you on the core charge?
If you have to send back your PCM because of an issue, or are in process of checking something out with the PCM, or working with us on adjusting the file with your tuning software, we will gladly allow you extra time to return your core.
If you have an issue with your PCM or install, the core return allowance of 14 days will be extended until the issue is resolved.

7. What octane do I need to run?
Premium gas is required.

8. Can you dyno tune my car?
Yes! We have a chassis dyno, that we operate 6 days a week. Normal dyno tuning is the cost of our PCM (if yours is stock) plus $115 to $300 depending on the time and number of dyno pulls required to dial in your setup.

9. Do you recommend any particular setups?
Yes.
We would recommend our LNF silicone intake, and our LNF Downpipe, ZZP intercooler with pipes, and ZZP valve springs.

10. What is 1st gear boost reduction?
This feature limits the boost in 1st gear to aid in traction and launching.

11. How do I perform a security relearn?
For the seed key relearn, this is the procedure:

You can open and close the door- It doesn't matter. You will need to get in and out since you need to push in the clutch.

1. Depress the clutch and try to start the car. If it does not turn over, let off, but leave the key in the run position. The security light should be lit up on the dash.
2. Wait 10 minutes(you can open the door and get out). The security light on the dash will turn off after 10 minutes.
3. Turn the key off for 5 seconds, then depress the clutch and try to start the car. If it does not turn over, let off, but leave the key in the run position. The security light should be lit up on the dash.
4. Wait 10 minutes(you can open the door and get out). The security light on the dash will turn off after 10 minutes.
5. Turn the key off for 5 seconds, then depress the clutch and try to start the car. If it does not turn over, let off, but leave the key in the run position. The security light should be lit up on the dash.
6. Wait 10 minutes(you can open the door and get out). The security light on the dash will turn off after 10 minutes.
7. Turn the key off for 5 seconds, then depress the clutch and try to start the car. The car should start on this attempt.

Unbelievable performance.

I recently installed the upgraded PCM and the TCU on my 08 Chevy HHR SS and all I can say is wow what a difference. The mechanic that installed it said he had never seen such a power difference it made. I know it's hard to believe but I am getting better gas mileage also, almost 2 mpg. I have an automatic and from 1st to second shift it lights the tires up.

LNF PCM Cobalt SS

Put this in after installing GM Stage 1 Map Sensors and got an E47 tune with this. I had a different tune on it before that and I wasn’t sure that it would make much of a difference. I was blown away after I put this tune in. I used to be hitting 17-19 lbs of boost and now I’m hitting 23 lbs consistently with a perfect gradual power band and my tires now cannot handle second gear. Super happy and impressed with this tune!

LNF Downpipe

Always quality products from ZZP. Fast shipping, excellent packaging and amazing product as always. Good performance increase when coupled with tune. I went catless and with the stock catback it still added a decent bit of sound but is much deeper and better sounding.
