Ordering Osiris you need that number and it says call the dealership and give them your vin# and they can give me the ECU PN.The guy at the dealership says 10 different groups of numbers comes up for me to bring in my truck so he can plug it in to get the right one,but it will be a charge for this.Anybody had this problem?

Sorry, you can't get the part number off of the side of the ecm. The only number on there is manufacture specific for the ecm. The part number in it is actually the part number for the program that is in it. The only way to be sure what is in it, is to plug it up to the Consult and request it. If they have ever had to reflash it for anything, even before you got the truck, the part number will change from its original part number.

All you need is your VIN #. Jared/ Chung can get your ECU # from it and you can easily read it from several areas of your truck.

Have fun w/ Osiris.

Make sense, I know at one point Technosquare was asking for the number of the ECU for reflash, LOL maybe that's why not many peoples have gone with them.:D

I deal with these every day. You may have three boxes sitting in front of you just alike and all of them may have a different part number. Sometimes the only way I can tell is to hook them up and check with a consult. I have also got them out of the box and the part number in it won't be what it says. Everything may still work but there could be a little change in the programing for some additional equipment or a different area. (eg. different types of abs, vdc, ffv, gearing, 4x4, Canada, Mexico, etc.) May throw a MIL or maybe not. The number difference may be as small as xxxxx-ZQ00A to xxxxx-ZQ00B.

I asked my ******* mechanic about this, he recommends that you just rip all that ecu crap off and bolt on a holley 4bbl.
If you could figure that out with the VVT and the ignition reading off of the flywheel, there would be a line of people beating down your door to find out how.
