2023 CT4-V Blackwing
I was looking at GM Cadillac accessories and a link said there were "chips" of three performance levels for the CTV-4 Blacking.

I was under the impression that modern ECMs/computers are not amenable to "chips" that to up the power you had to go on a dyno and revamp the fuel and advance curves.

Sounds like a warranty destroyer.

There are people on this forum far more knowledgeable than I. Please chime in. Thanks, Don
 
First I've heard of it (and of course don't see the same on the 5BW side.) Can you drop a screenshot here for us? I'm sure someone can suss this out.

Come to think of it, didn't Tapout or Trifecta come up with tuning packages for the 4BW? I wonder if Cadillac is reselling those directly? It would be much more attractive coming from the manufacturer with their warranty.

Here's the article I saw on line about "chips". One thing I won't do is jeopardize my 4BWs warranty. It's certainly fast but any major repairs are likely to be costly.

Cadillac Chips are best in class horsepower, torque and fuel economy gains. A 60 second plug-n-play install is all it takes to increase the performance and mileage of your vehicle. Performance is improved by dyno tuning your Cadillac, creating a more efficient fuel map changing air/fuel mixtures. The tuning improves the timing and boost pressure (if your engine applies), all while maintaining the vehicle warranty. The performance chip easily unplugs for emission testing and diagnostic work.
No modifications are required for your performance chip to work on your vehicle. If you modify your vehicle in the future, the performance chip will recognize the modifications, adapt and correct the air/fuel mixtures. If you ever wish to return to your vehicle to stock form, simply unplug the performance chip from the OBD2 port, and the factory ECU will resume with the original fuel map. Keep an eye out for vehicle performance products offering impossible numbers with just a resistor. Chip Your Car Performance Chips are the genuine tuning solution.

60hp for 176bucks? I'm in. /s

But seriously, I'm annoyed that the company is using the owners claimed veteran status to market that crap.
 
Don't think I said it was, I just Googled the subject.

Dealer's tech guy said what I expected, that it's a waste of $. Don't even think modern car ECMs can be "chipped".
 
That’s NOT a GM product.
I got the same impression from the original post that is was the "GM" site. Maybe a little lack of clarity there.

This kind of worthless stuff has been around since the dawn of computers in cars.

This is the world's most obvious scam. Did you also get an email from a Nigerian prince?
 
HPTuners is able to unlock the ECUs of the 4/5BW. There’s a handful of videos on YouTube showing what gains the tuners are getting out of these cars.

Yes, but an OBDII device that you just plug in, drive a few miles and get 60hp is complete BS. Especially when saying that if you just remove it and then start the car, its all back to stock.
 
Not sure where I talked about an OBDII device. The scam seems like one of those pedal commander BS things.

Anyways if you want a real tune, send your ECU to HPTuners to get unlocked and have a reputable tuner take it from there.

Thanks for the snarky response. Have a bad day.

Notice I said I didn't think modern cars could be chipped. Don

What previous thread? If I did a double or similar post, my regrets, not intentional. Don
 
Or get a dremel with a diamond carbide round bit, and lay down a dimple pattern in the TB. I’d tell you the pattern layout and the depth of the dimples…but it’s a secret
