Stratagy VXAP2N2

My ECM is VXAP2N2 and my TCM is TQAU0n5 I dont have a SCT yet but Im waiting till after I get married in june as that's where all my $$ is going until then. Shoulda got it before because Im driving the truck over 1,700 miles to Colorado and over 1,700 miles back to Florida but too late now. I was lucky to get my CTS and 5"MBRP without the old lady b1tching too much.

That strategy sucks. I ran that one and my mileage and power took a dump. I got PHP to flash me back to VXAM7XX, and my mileage is back. The only thing I liked about that strategy was the turbo cycling at idle.

Tuner can implement the turbo vane cycling in a tune. Tuner can also use the earlier strategy as a base for the tune mods so when you install the tune you also revert to the earlier strategy. Basically there is no sense in rolling back a tuned truck because when you load the new tune you also load whatever strategy the tuner used as a base. The rolled back strategy is only there when you return to stock.

I'm glad you posted this!! Thank you very much! I've always thought this is how it works and didn't understand the need for a ECM rollback, but with all the threads and talk about the rollback I was starting to doubt my line of thinking.

You got it. Just tell whoever tunes your truck that you want them to roll it back.

I've been very confused about this for a while...I was thinking I needed to roll back to a better strategy so that a tuner could write tunes for it! Good thing I didn't! Now, an FICM tune is different...right?

Is there a way to see the strategy without a SCT?

On your CTS. Don't remember exactly how but if you go through the menu you'll find it. Otherwise I'm sure someone will chime in...
