the PCM is locked from the factory and to this date no one makes a tuner software for the GXP. there have been roomers of a company or two working on it but no progress yet on them

I just don't see why they would lock the PCM.

Yep, as mentioned, its the difficulty in tuning them.

An SSEi will need a few mods to catch up to a GXP. Just look at the numbers. The GXP will run mid 14'* between 14.4 and 14.6 all day long, and an SSEi stock will run low 15'*; high 14'* on a very good day.

Now if that one company in Canada that was working on a GXP PCM that they said they were able to unlock does come out with something, we should be able to see this Northstar pull some more impressive numbers.
