I have Efi Live comercial scan and tune. problem is they don't support my 00 impala 3.8. I dont want a pcm canned tune I want full access to tune the pcm myself. What I need it to be able to have an input in the pcm to read a switch of some sort on off whatever that reads a fully different timing table and different fuel maps I can and will swap out pcms that are supported but whats a pcm that will marry to this car ?

Yes, for really serious builds, such as top swapping, DHP is a little better.

However, they went out of business so the lack of support lead me to HP Tuners
HP Tuners is also a little more user friendly.

And yes, they can be used to do supercharger builds, turbo's, and nitrous. I am actually almost done piecing together my nitrous build, and will be putting it all together in late dec/early january


I honestly don't know what you would need to do to get the EFI to work, and have never personally heard of anyone using one on these cars. They are supported to use on the 06+ impala's but not the 00-05. I'm guessing it has to do with the ECM/PCM differences (which is weird since they do support other cars with PCM's), so its probably a ton of work to make it useable, and might end up costing you more than buying a DHP or HP Tuners (esp since DHP can be bought used, unlocked, for less than $300 these days


EDIT: Also, why are you leaning towards a Dry kit over a Wet kit?
