All about the ’19-20 GM Gas Truck ECM Send In Process

Last week Superchips announced the release of Flashpaq performance tuning for 2019-2020 Silverado & Sierra trucks equipped with the 5.3L and 6.2L V8 engines. This was a massive break through for our team as it took significant engineering effort to get these pre-loaded handheld flash tuners available to the market. The locked ECM GM is now using in their trucks wasn’t an easy egg to crack, but our team conquered that mountain and the adjustable features and performance gains now available to you with Flashpaq are incredible. If you noticed the requirement of the ‘ECM Send In’ that is included with the Flashpaq 2847-S but have hesitations because of it, we want to clear the air and set the record straight on how simple the ECM Send In is, why it’s required, and why it shouldn’t worry you.

Locked ECM’s are nothing new to us, as some OE manufacturers have been using them for years now. Take Chrysler for instance, we had to overcome the hurdle of locked PCM’s 6-years ago when Chrysler made the switch in the 2015 Ram 1500 trucks and Jeep Wrangler JK. In those particular applications, we developed our PCM Swap process that allows us to ship you an unlocked PCM to swap into your vehicle in place of your factory locked unit. This swap process minimizes your vehicle’s down time to just the amount of time it takes you to swap the computers out. Up until the 2019 model year, the Chrysler based vehicles have really been the only platforms we deal with on a regular basis with locked PCMs. At least that was the case until GM released the new body style Silverado and Sierra trucks in 2019. These trucks used an all-new, smarter ECM that took extensive efforts on our end to not only how we would tune the truck, but also obstacles on how you, the end user, would ever be able to flash it with a pre-loaded handheld at home.

There are other Unlock ECM options for the 2019-2020 truck on the market, but we didn’t feel their process was an easy one, as even once unlocked, it would still require you to take the vehicle to a custom tuning shop to have them build files specific to your vehicle. This process seemed clunky and more importantly, expensive. Two things we always try to steer clear of with our devices. The other tuning options on the market required a very expensive ECM unlock (also send in only), the expense of paying a custom tuner for the tunes, and on top of all that, the time you’d have invested in making that all happen. Plus, you’ve got to be lucky enough to have a qualified tuning shop in your local area to do it all for you. So when we dove into the 2019-2020 GM Gas truck project, we had two main goals, keep it as simple as we could for our customer and keep it as affordable as possible.

Creating the performance calibrations for the Flashpaq specific to the 2019-2020 5.3L and 6.2L engines was the easiest part of this whole process, as our calibration team has years of experience and first hand knowledge of tuning the GM platforms. With their expertise and our state-of-the-art dyno testing facility, making the adjustments we found were needed to improve your overall driving experience was almost second nature. It was the obstacle of getting those calibrations into our pre-loaded Flashpaq device, so you could flash them into a locked ECM at home that presented the challenge. Due to some vehicle other parameters and module control laced into the factory ECM, performing our standard PCM Swap on new ECM’s and shipping them to you wasn’t going to be an option. Each trucks specific ECM needs to remain in the truck, after unlocking, so that all those other factory systems remain to function as they should. Sending you an unlocked ECM to install with the device, that isn’t the original from the truck, would require a trip to the dealer for a flash, before you could install our Flashpaq. This obviously creates an issue since that blank unlocked ECM wouldn’t allow your truck to run or drive. While, it is an option, again, that route seemed clunky, inconvenient and time consuming for you the customer. Plus, involving a GM dealer into this just adds more expense, something we obviously want to avoid if/when possible.

To overcome these obstacles, our innovative ECM Send In process was developed to offer the easiest route to get your truck up and running with our performance tuning calibrations while offering you the reliability and adjustability you expect from Superchips. All of it is right there at your finger tips for adjusting the speedometer after a tire size change. Adjusting the top speed limiter is just a button away and even disabling your DFM system or modifying your TPMS settings is simple and straight forward.

The ECM Send In process starts off when you receive your device. Inside the packaging, you’ll find a QR code that will send you to an online form where you’ll enter your VIN, device part number (2847-S) and your device serial number. Once added to your cart, you’ll enter your personal information and submit it to us. This data is stored in our files for use once your ECM arrives at our Florida location. We’ll use this form to complete our ECM unlock procedures and be sure we’re returning the ECM to the correct address.

Using the video below as a guide, you can then remove the ECM from your truck to package up and send to us for unlocking. Depending on how quickly you opt to ship the ECM to us, we can have it back to you in as little 3-days. The original purchase of your Flashpaq includes the cost of unlocking your ECM and overnight return shipping it back to you. ECM Send In’s will always take priority over our other daily tasks, as we know you can’t afford to have the truck down any longer than it needs to be. When sending your ECM to us, please be mindful of the shipping days required, and that we are not open on weekends. So ensuring your ECM will arrive during the week, will allow the business days required to perform the work and return it quickly. In some cases, we could have your computer unlocked and back in our return shipping bin the same day we receive it. But in most instances, it’s safe to plan that we’ll need one business day to receive and a second business day to unlock and package for return to you. Keeping to our 3-day turnaround goal to have your truck back up and running as quickly as we can. We understand that your bought your truck to drive it and most do so daily, unfortunately, with GM’s locked ECM, this process is the easiest and least expensive option we could create for getting our Flashpaq in your hands.

If you plan to install a lift kit and larger tires, a job that can take a few days labor at the local off-road shop, maybe coordinating that downtime with this ECM Send In can limit the time without your truck, and we can unlocking your ECM while that shop gets your new 6″ lift springs installed, the front-end aligned and 35″ mud terrains balanced. Our ECM Unlock process is safe and proven, and is still compatible with the GM dealer service tools. Meaning, should your truck ever need to go in for dealer service or updates, their tools will still be able to flash the ECM without issue. We always just suggest returning your Flashpaq to the factory settings before taking it to the dealer, so they don’t accidentally flash over your performance calibrations. Flashpaq for 2019-2020 5.3L/6.2L Silverado and Sierra trucks has been years in the making and our team has worked hard to offer you nothing but the best. Our performance results tell the story, and your driving experience once tuned will prove it.

Our calibrations team spent a lot of time perfecting our tunes to give you everything you’ve come to expect from a Superchips tuner. By adjusting torque outputs at lower pedal inputs, you’ll love the new throttle response. Adjustments to spark advance offer better power and torque throughout the RPM range, while helping to improve fuel economy. Changes in engine speed limitations allow you you feel that massive power and torque curve for longer. You’ll also notice an improved pedal feel when running in the trucks factory ‘Sport’ mode for an the exciting driving experience you didn’t think possible in a 1/2-ton truck.

This device includes our ‘ECM Send-In’ process, which will require your trucks factory ECM to be removed and shipped to us for unlocking. Once our specialists create the internal ECM modifications, it will be returned to you for re-installation into the truck, where you can then tune with your choice of calibration within the Flashpaq device. The purchase of the Flashpaq 2847-S includes the cost of the ECM Unlock and Next Day Air return shipping of your ECM. So we can limit down time to as little as just 3-days. Our ECM modifications are safe, reliable and compatible with GM dealer tools and flashes. So, your local dealer can still interact with your truck after you’ve returned your Flashpaq tuning to factory settings.

Flashpaq for 2.0L Jeep Wrangler JL

Finally, the performance flash tuning you’ve been begging for! Superchips Flashpaq (P/N 3876-JL) now supports 2018-2020 2.0L Jeep Wrangler JL. The 2.0L turbocharged engine has been a great new option for Wrangler JL owners, offering good fuel mileage and great torque. But aftermarket support for the platform has been limited, until now! Drivability of the 2.0L engine and 8-speed automatic transmission has been great, but of course, our calibration team was able to make it even better with our all-new Flashpaq tuning.

Features:

  • 25hp/20tq Peak Gains
  • 65hp/90tq Max Gains
  • Improved Transmission Shift Strategies
  • Broader Power and Torque Curves
  • Increased Low RPM Performance
  • Better Throttle Response and Turbo Spool-up
  • Eliminates reduced power in 4-Low
  • 87 Octane, 91 Octane, 93 Octane, Crawl Tune
  • PCM Swap Required

 

 

Through extensive development, our team of engineers have worked tirelessly to not only break the PCM coding but to offer even better performance, mileage, and drivability from an already great platform. Not wanting to simply increase boost output, our engineers worked at making multiple changes within the tuning to not only increase peak power and torque, but improve the overall curves, so you get that power and torque sooner. By making changes to the transmission shift strategies, boost curve, timing, and fueling maps the all new Flashpaq tuning will offer better low end power and torque with max gains of 65hp/90ft-lbs torque at 3000 RPM’s. The broader power curves allow for better turbo spool-up, increased mid-range for accelerating in traffic, and the torque you need to keep a bigger set of tires rolling.

Of course, like all our Flashpaq devices, performance tuning isn’t the only advantage here. User’s also have the ability to:

  • Adjust for up to 41” tires
  • Adjust for up to 5.38 gear ratio
  • Enable/Disable TPMS
  • Adjust TPMS Pressure Warnings
  • Adjust Speed and Rev Limiters
  • Enable/Disable Auto Start Stop Function

 

  • 87 Octane – 9hp/11tq
  • 91 Octane – 18hp/22tq
  • 93 Octane – 20hp/25tq
  • Crawl Tune – 18hp/22tq

Like all other 2015+ Jeep models, a PCM Swap and Bypass Module will be required in order to flash performance tuning into the vehicle. Gateway Bypass is included with the Flashpaq device and an unlocked PCM will be shipped to you to trade out your factory PCM.

Building our 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL: It’s Wrapped!

Well boys and girls here it is, the big reveal on our freshly wrapped 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL. After much discussion within our team and listening to input from you guys, we’ve decided to go big and bold on this 2.0L Jeep, a throwback to the 70’s with a little vintage Hot Wheels twist. That bright and attention grabbing Bikini Pearl was just begging for some more flash and we Buzz Graphics nailed it on this one. Couple sweeping stripes, some matte black for contrast and even some graphics added to the hood puts this Jeep® front and center to hopefully grab everyone’s attention in our upcoming ad and video campaigns.

 

 

Now that it has it’s SC branding its time to really start installing some parts and get this Jeep® Wrangler® JL ready for the rocks and muddy trails. With a matching set of Trail Series 2 bumpers from Expedition One, we’ll be able to install our ComeUp winch and carry a our full size 37″ Fury R/T tire for a spare. Of course, first and foremost we’ll need to get our Terrain Flex 3.5″ lift kit from Readylift installed to clear those massive meats. Superchips tuning support for this 2.0L turbo engine is right around the corner, but until then we’ll be sure to put our Flashcal to good use to keep our speedometer reading correctly with the bigger 37″ tires mounted up. We also have our Amp’d Throttle Booster ready to plug in to improve the overall drivability, bringing tha powerband in a little sooner when we roll into the throttle. Checkout our latest video on the build below and make sure you visit our store to outfit your Jeep for the obstacles ahead.

 

 

 

Building our 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL: Baseline Dyno

Obviously, before our calibrations team can really dig into a new platform, we have to know what we’re starting with. With that in mind, we needed to get the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL on our Superflow chassis dyno to see just how much that little 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo can produce. With the baselines recorded we can move on to the lift, tires, bumpers, winch and SC branded wrap for this Wrangler® JL. It’s got to be dressed to impress when our marketing and event campaigns kick off, but first we want to talk horsepower.

On the Superflow chassis dyno in our Ogden, UT facility, the completely stock 2.0L Wrangler® JL made 231hp and 310ft-lbs of torque. Jeep® rates this 2.0L engine at 270hp/290tq flywheel. Taking a 15% drive train loss into consideration (229.5hp), our 231 wheel horsepower seems pretty accurate. 310lft-lbs of torque is quite surprising however. Jeep® is either very conservative on their 290tq claim or that quick spooling turbocharger just runs really strong here. We expected to see closer to 245ft-lbs at the tire from this power plant, so 310ft-lbs is great!

 

 

Paired with the 8-speed automatic and the factory Rubicon 4.10 gears, this combination is actually quite sporty around town. There is some slight lag off idle, but that can be taken care of easily with the addition of our Amp’d Throttle Booster (p/n 48868-JT). While the Amp’d doesn’t add any power to the 2.0L turbo engine, it definitely brings that power band on sooner making it feel even more peppy for day to day driving. For an interesting comparison, we dyno’d our 2019 Wrangler® JL with the 3.6L V6, and it produced 204hp/220tq in stock form. So those of you concerned about performance from a ‘little 4-cylinder’, you may need to take a second look at Jeep’s® 2.0L engine. With our up and coming tuning support for the 2.0L Turbo, is that naturally aspirated V6 going to become a thing of the past? We don’t think so, but the 4-cylinder will be holding it’s own in the market for sure.

Building our 2.0L 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL

 

Quarantine 2020 may have spoiled our Easter Jeep Safari fun and postponed Jeep Beach a few months but we won’t let all that ruin our plans on the build-up of our 2020 Jeep® Wrangler® JL. As a new vehicle to the Superchips fleet, this 2020 JL Rubicon runs the 2.0L turbocharged engine and will be the test mule for our engineering team for R&D and calibration development. We want performance tuning coverage for this engine platform and this will be the Jeep® to help us get there. While we use our fleet vehicles in the shop to develop new tuning and calibration features for our product lines like the Flashpaq, Trail Dash 2 and Pulsar modules, like you, we are all enthusiasts at heart. Testing our products in real world situations is key. Lucky for us, real world testing for a Jeep® means we get to spend time off-road. Crawling the rocks in Moab. Navigating rutted up muddy roads in the woods. Maybe even pushing some snow with the bumper on some mountain pass in the spring. Plus, this particular Wrangler® JL will make a great platform for our marketing team to  get out to events and shows to showcase everything Superchips has to offer the Jeep® crowd.

The Build Plans

The factory Jeep® Wrangler® JL Rubicon is a pretty capable off-road machine, but we all know how much aftermarket support is available for these. With so many options, it makes it easy to build something better suited for your specific needs. Like our customers, we want to be able to use our Jeep® for more than just a daily commute across town. We have every intention of getting this thing out in the sticks and that means stock just isn’t going to cut it much longer. So here’s the introduction to a 2020 Wrangler® JL build, we’re planning to document the process, share it with you, and hopefully get some input from you followers on where to go next.

We’ll be working with some of the best in the business on this project and already have a pile of parts here waiting to be installed. For suspension we’re going with a ReadyLIFT 3.5″ Terrain Flex 2-arm kit so we’ll have enough clearance for some 37×13.50R20 Fury R/T tires. We have a set of bumpers from Expedition One at powder coat, along with a set of their matching rocker guards for some cab protection when crawling. . To aid in off-road recovery, Comeup USA set us up with their Gen 2 winch for that new front bumper. Superchips LIT LED’s will be added for extra lighting at night and Artec Industries custom mounts will help make that an easy install. We also have a set of Artec’s front and rear inner fenders for additional tire clearance. To break up some of that shimmery Bikini Blue, the paint matched top is being replaced with a wicked cool fastback Bestop Trektop. Our graphics team is in the final stages on creating a vehicle wrap too.

Wrangler® JL Performance Upgrades

On the performance side of things, of course there will be a host of Superchips stuff finding it’s way in to the build, including our newly released Amp’d Throttle Booster for the 2.0L Turbo, maybe a Flashcal for tire size adjustments, and as we continue to progress in the launch of performance programmers we’ll get this thing tuned up as well. We have some tricks up our sleeve for a new cold air intake and we’ve got some love for the exhaust side with a Flowmaster Force II axle back kit. We’re going to start getting pretty open and honest on our experiences with this Jeep® Wrangler® JL build. Baseline dyno charts and video to share, installation pictures with some tips or tricks to make your own installs easier, and hopefully you can help us with some tough decisions like what we’re going to name this thing. Plus, all of this will make a great excuse to giveaway some swag or and SC product to you guys following along the way!
