to my car (an N/A Impala LS).

I realize I'd need a PCM flash, but what'* the best way to get it? Oh, and what hardware do I need? Thanks guys!

Check for motor mount changes, wiring changes and then find someone with a tuner for both years with both bin files. I think you may also need an axle, bonnies do.

Best way to make sure is to call and check. 05 is very new and I am unsure of the Impala files.

HPtuners website claims to have support for '00-'05 Impala, though DHP PowrTuner only claims support to '04.

As Boosty said, you'd better check with PCM vendors to see if they even have access to '05 .bin files before buying that trans.

I'm going to call Intense about the PCM situation tomorrow, I have learned from the Impala forums that I need to do some wiring changes too... So that'll be fun....

It'* not just for the diff. I need the new tranny that comes with it, lmao. I think, though, if I can, I might trade final gear ratios (since I really don't want slower gears), then use the rest so I could avoid the PCM
