    Gotcha, so you just need to add the sensor.

    I need to look into what is required to do this on my Cobalt. Dealing with E85 blend changes as it transitions into summer blend is a major pain in the ass, as it's extremely sensitive.

    Doesn't surprise me that people are already out there, haha.

    Back when I still lived in Royal Oak, I'd be one of those people.

    Dropped off at a local dealer Monday to have the BCM (that I damaged) replaced. Tech installed the new module but couldn't get the car to start, Friday he chased it down to the key not being seen by the BCM via the NFC receiver that reads the key fob if its dead or to program a new one to the car. The dealer ordered a new receiver module and it should be in this coming Monday.

    I had a talk with the tech about how he had determined what the problem was just to make sure one of my numerous mods wasn't the problem. The highlights are that he made sure all the various computers/modules were communicating, then tried a brand new key and still the BCM wouldn't see it.

    As an aside, I was prepared for the cost of this venture, not so much how long it would take! I've been told I'm like someone who's kid is in the hospital, I know its not fatal but I still worry and I want my baby back!

    Oh well, nothing to do but wait for news from the dealer.

    EDIT: I chose to do this now because I want to get a tune for the thing and the dealer wouldn't work on it if I had tuned it. This means if I wanted the problems fixed then I would have to try the BCM replacement before any tuning. And I really want (as an example) the 370hp (peak) from a BNR tune!
    Did you by any chance keepp track of your expenditures...or is this a labor of love?

    Would be interesting to know if this endeavor is cost effective or not.

    So, the two wrecked vehicles, parts etc, not including your Labor...$12.5k, not bad if you consider the journey part of your education or possibly therapy.

    Rough idea of time put into it?

    @Blasirl Probably something like 20+ 8hr days, just guessing though. That also includes fabricating custom exhaust (3 times), fixing things I broke, and installing aftermarket components that weren't necessary to the function of the vehicle.

    So being generous, add $1000 in labor for a grand total of $13.5k.

    @Blasirl I'd say more like $14k if you were to pay someone else to do the swap including the cost of the 2 cars. Keeping in mind that number is for a MT swap, an auto would be cheaper and easier to find a verano to sacrifice.
