    Why not. I was wondering the same thing as far as a quick and easy DOD delete?? I have a guy with a locked up 2009 that asked me this today. A fella couldnt put an 04 with the 04 PCM and Trans in an 09?? Or any pre AFM/DOD Ls for that matter??

    Nothing in the 2009 truck would ever work again if you put a 2004 computer in it and all the engine wiring.

    You'd have no cluster, no ABS, no traction control, no proper body functions anymore because the 2007.5+ trucks all use can-bus.

    There is no converter box that allows for the 24x to 58x conversion. They only have a 58 to 24x.
    2016 Silverado CCSB 5.3/6L80e, not as slow but still heavy.

    If you don't post your tune and logs when you have questions you aren't helping yourself.

    In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few.
