Default HP Tuners Support

Hi All,

I just received notice that HPT version 3 is out and it lists the 03 GT as a supported vehicle.

However, there is an asterisk. Some GTs have an NGC1 ecm which is NOT supported. How can I tell which ecm is in the cruiser?

If I remember right, forum member, Myckee, once told me that the 2003 GT PT's came with the later model PCM hardware. Or maybe it was just the 2003 Stage 1 PCM that was the later model hardware? But the 2003 non-turbos had the older ones. Either way, you may want to PM Myckee. He can tell you how to determine which PCM hardware version you have.

Yup, as Handy said, just about all, if not all, 03 GTs used an NGC1 ecu from the factory. It may be that the very last 03's on the production line ended up by having the NGC3 hardware, but for all intents and purposes they were all NGC1. However if you had a Stage 1 ecu, even for an 03, they all use NGC3 hardware.

That doesn't sound promising. Is there a way to tell for sure?

If your 03 ecu has the same part number as the picture below, assuming your car is an automatic, then it is NGC1. Manual ecus are 331AA instead of 479 and are NGC1 too. If you wanted to be really sure, then you would need to have a more advanced OBD2 scan tool which can read advanced info from the ecu.

Sorry no. I haven't done anything further. I've been dealing with some health problems.

I pretty much assumed I was sol.
