    Hey everyone! I've been reading up on the 0411 swap and EFI Live, and I am contemplating this swap. I can get PCMs from my local junkyard for $30, and it seems as if they have a few 01-02 Express vans, and more Silverados. My first question is, what are the exact years and models that use the 0411 PCM, so I can properly search the junkyard? If anyone else is interested in doing the swap or needs PCMs, it seems as if this junkyard has a bunch, but won't know until I get there to see firsthand. If they do, I don't mind sending them to people that want one.

    Also, EFI Live seems to be my nemesis, as I am not very good with self tuning and don't know how it works entirely (which means I should probably dive in and do it). Plus, the new wiring harnesses and re-pinning. I found a website that sells the 0411 swap kit, including tune and with pin-out sheets and connectors from Lextech for $240.

    Would it be better for me to go with the swap kit that includes the 0411 and tune; buy a $30 0411, send it in to BB and have it tuned, then do the repinning, or do all of that and buy EFI Live (which is $900) to tune it myself?

    Any help through this process would be great. I think my Tahoe has a tune on it already, considering the decent power it has with the lift and tires, and it revs up to 6000 RPM, if not more.

    After a little more research, I found the write-up on GMT Central, including the models and years of the 0411. 2001-2002 trucks, Fbodies, Corvettes, Express vans, etc, but will still need a pin-out diagram once I get the PCM. Seems like very beneficial upgrade.

    Bump it!

    Btw, if anyone on here, or other forums, needs a 0411 PCM, let me know. My junkyard has a bunch! I found 4, and didn't even look through everything.

    I can check my local junkyards for you. First I’ll check their inventory, and if I find anything I’ll let you know
