Introduction
This document is intended to assist EFILive customers with the basic operations and
steps necessary to setup EFILive's DSP4 custom operating system for the Duramax
2.8L E98 ECM.
Additional Support Resources
If after reviewing this guide further assistance is required please contact the EFILive
Authorised Reseller from whom you purchased your product. They are your first point of
contact for EFILive support related inquiries.
If your question is in relation to the actual tuning of your vehicle (i.e. how to gain
performance, economy etc.) then please ask these questions on the EFILive Forum
(http://forum.efilive.com/). EFILive does not provide support or assistance for the actual
tuning of any supported vehicles.
Software Version Overview
EFILive presently has two major software versions (V8 and V7) that service different
parts of the tuning and scanning process. The V8 software is undergoing significant
development and will eventually supersede V7 entirely for FlashScan V2 customers.
For the moment, however, both versions are required.
The following is a brief view of the activities that are performed with the different
software versions:

Purpose
 Reads and Flashes the E98 GM Diesel ECM.
 Maintaining the bootblock and firmware versions on
the EFILive FlashScan V2 and AutoCal devices.
 Configuration of FlashScan V2 and AutoCal devices
for DSP4 tune switching.
 Standalone logging to FlashScan / Autocal.
 Modifications to the ECM calibration are made using
the V7 Tune Tool application. The modified
calibration is then flashed into the ECM (again using
V8).
 Logging of real time data from the vehicle is done
using the V7 Scan Tool application.

What is EFILive DSP4?
EFILive's DSP custom operating systems for the E98 GM Diesel ECM allows customers
to be able to switch 'on the fly' between multiple tunes, all stored in the ECM's flash
memory. ECM memory defines the number of tunes that are available for switching.
Having multiple tunes instantly accessible means changing tunes to suit different driving
conditions no longer requires the ECM to be reflashed each time you choose to run a
different tune. (E.g. racing, towing, or power limiting.) Simply build up all the tunes you
need, flash the ECM once and then select your desired tune through your EFILive
hardware (or other approved switching devices) at any time.
DSP4 Upgrade Checklist
In order to upgrade your existing tune to DSP4, there are some things you need to
check first.
DSP4 conversion files are only available for on selected factory ECM Operating
Systems (OS's).
Operating System #
55597308
55484589
55491988
55493455
If the truck has had a different tuner on it in the past (i.e. not EFILive) then the
conversion process may fail. EFILive highly recommends Customers source a good
known base file for DSP4. This may involve either a dealer flash, or obtaining a suitable
file from your chosen tuner.
EFILive cannot always detect the presence of other tuners in files, if a situation occurs
where EFILive's modifications 'clash' with other tuners modification it might result in a
bricked 'brain dead' ECM that cannot be recovered.
To upgrade to DSP4, the minimum software requirements are:
1. EFILive V8.2.2.294 or later
2. FlashScan V2 / AutoCal Firmware - V2.07.97
3. EFILive V7.5.7.303 or later
The latest software versions are available for download from EFILive's website.

Upgrade Operating System to DSP4
Important: Ensure FlashScan V2 / AutoCal is plugged in to the PC's USB port prior to
starting V7.5.
Using the EFILive V7.5 Tuning Tool, open your tune and click on the 'Upgrade OS' tab.
Select the 'DSP4 v1.00 Custom Operating System' option and click on the 'Apply
Upgrade' button, you will then be asked to confirm the operation.
Save the file with a new name, File > Save As. Maybe something like...
'My Truck Base DSP4 Conversion.ctz’.
Once the file has been saved with its new name, close the file down, File > Close
Tuning File.
Reopen the file so EFILive will recognise the file is a DSP4 converted operating system.
Please also take note of the new operating system (OS) number of the DSP4 converted
file. Eg, 55597308 now becomes 65597308
EFILive automatically populates the new DSP4 tables with factory pickup truck values
during the upgrade to get you started. On modified engines these may not be suitable
settings, you may need to copy your own tables in to the new DSP4 section(s).
Any existing tables from your old converted tune are now located in the "DSP4 Program
#4" folder.
Once you have made the necessary changes (or even if you do not make changes) to
your individual tunes, save the tune file again and FULL FLASH the ECM using V8
Scan and Tune. The Full Flash only needs to be done once to get the new DSP4 OS in
to the ECM, calibration only flashing is all that is needed for additional tuning changes to
any of the switchable maps.
Full Flash is required to revert to a factory operating system (single tune).

Tune Features of DSP4
All tune features of DSP4 are accessible via the V7 Tune Tool application.
Tune Switch Password
Users may restrict tune selection by adding a password to move between tune
selections to prevent unauthorized switching between tunes 1 to 4.
Before switching between tune selections, users would need to enter in the password (1
to 9999). If the password is correct, the tune will switch, if it is incorrect the tune will not
switch.
It should be noted that not all switching devices may support this function, however
EFILive's own FlashScan V2 and AutoCal hardware does.
To enable the tune switch password, users need to input their chosen password in the
calibration. As the calibration description states, if the password = 0 then there is no
password prompt given to the user when switching tunes.

DSP4 CAN Tunes
The DSP4 tunes labelled "Program #1 to Program #4" are all switched via a device on
the CAN bus.
Each one of these programs has duplicate sets of tables for you to alter. Program #1 to
Program #3 have some 'stock' values inserted in to the maps; Program #4 contains the
values you already had in the standard OS maps prior to the DSP4 conversion.
When the DSP4 OS conversion is performed the new tables are populated with maps
from a standard pickup truck, these may not be suitable for your vehicle, especially if
your vehicle has been modified. Please review and change as necessary the default
maps in all the DSP4 tunes before starting and driving the vehicle.
It should be noted that whenever the ECM is reflashed it may default to using DSP4
Program #1.

Switching Tunes with FlashScan V2/AutoCal
To switch tunes via the FlashScan V2/AutoCal, the device must first be configured for
switching, and a DSP4 tune file flashed into the ECM. Once configured, and a DSP4
tune file is flashed into the ECM navigate to: (FlashScan V2 samples shown)...
1. Select F2 Tune Tool.
2. Select F3 Switchable Tunes.
3. Arrow between tune selections.
4. Select the 'Ok' button to select that tune. If it was successful you should see
confirmation of that on the screen.
You do not need to reselect the tune once the engine is shut down; the ECM
'remembers' which tune you previously selected.
Occasionally the ECM and FlashScan V2/AutoCal may get out of sync when switching
tunes if the trucks ignition was turned off but the FlashScan V2/AutoCal remained
powered up. When this occurs the following message will be displayed on the LCD
screen.
If you do see that error simply try to switch the tune again.

Integrating DSP4 with Approved 3rd Party Products
Integration of EFILive’s proprietary DSP4 custom operating system with 3rd party
products is restricted to approved providers, many of which are listed on the
www.efilive.com website. EFILive recommends that customers confirm that their
chosen integration product is approved for use.
To setup an approved integration product, users should:
1. Convert their base file to a DSP4 operating system, as described in this
document.
2. Edit tune parameters as necessary and save the file using the V7 Tune Tool
application, as described in this document.
3. Flash their modified file into their ECM using the V8 Scan and Tune
application as described in this document. (Specific selection of 3 rd party
product is NOT required in tune file).
4. Setup the 3rd party device as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Troubleshooting
Should users encounter problems with upgrading to DSP4 they should:
1. Confirm V7, V8 firmware and bootblock versions match the DSP4 minimum
requirements (listed above) using these instructions Finding FlashScan &
AutoCal Bootblock and Firmware versions
2. Confirm DSP4 file was upgraded to new operating system number, as
sequenced above.
3. If you require assistance in reading, flashing or editing tuning parameters on
your controller it is recommended you refer to the EFILive V8 Reference
which can be found in your V8 installation under documents, or the
Documentation section of the EFILive website.
4. If you require assistance in setting up FlashScan V2 or AutoCal standalone
features (BBX), it is recommended you refer to the EFILive V8 Reference.
5. If you are concerned your device is not switching between tunes, edit your
tunes to see a notable difference (ie Pedal to Desired Fuel table), reflash and
then test. Also note the EDA data stream has a parameter that indicates
which tune the ECM is running.
