I have been looking at the threads about pully your battery cable lose to get the performance we should be getting from our LS3, I wasnt sure if my salesman put 87 or 91 octain in her. I have had my girl for a little over two months and just today did i do that very thing pulled the cable and waited 1/2 hour hooked her up wala she is talking now, thanks for the info guys.

Here is the link kitty
https://www.moderncamaro.com/forum/sh...ight=fuse+pull


i did it on my V-6 and it seemed to help get it a little more pep... It resets the ECU. I am not sure if you have to wait a certain time or if you can do it right off the bat.....

Basically if the dealer put in less then 91 octane gas in it you will be using the lower octane fuel tables. It is suppose to correct its self when you put in 91 o higher and run it for a while but doesnt so you need to do the fuse pull on the automatics or disconnect the battery cables for around 10 minutes on the M6. That will reset it and it will detect your 91 or higher octane and use the correct fuel tables from that point forward as long as you continue to use 91+ gas.

BE SURE to disconnect the NEGATIVE/Ground/Black terminal from the trunk! Don't disconnect the Positive/red cable or you could cause an arc and melt the cable to metal!

So it's just basically just resetting the PCM like it has for a decade, right?

Yes. Apparently there has been issues with the original PCM programming recognizing the higher octane and necessitating the reset. And later updates "corrected" said problem. Not sure if that's wive's tale or not. For me, the jury's still out on the real-life benefits other than an excercise in busywork. But I guess popping a couple of fuses wouldn't hurt.
