The Edge Products slide replacement kit is a phenomenal product for LP5 Duramax engines. The factory ECM wiring harness connectors have often become brittle over time, resulting in damaged or even broken connectors. No one wants to have their Duramax down because of a broken connector. Edge’s replacement slide kit allows for a simple fix at a fraction of the time compared to other methods.
The above video is a step-by-step process on how to disassemble the ECM connector and install the replacement slide kit. The entire process takes under five minutes, and all you need is a pick or a screwdriver.
In the video, Edge shows the process of replacing the plastic slides on the ECM connector that often strip or break in the process of disconnecting the harness connectors. The kit has four plastic slides to repair the large and small LP5 ECM connectors. This connector repair kit is made specifically for the 2017-2022 L5P Duramax.
So, to wrap things up, this is a must-have when installing an aftermarket tuner like the Edge Pulsar v3 or removing the ECM. An upgrade like this could end up saving you a lot of downtime on your LP5. If you plan on unplugging the ECM connector on your LP5 Duramax, you might want to have an Edge replacement slide kit in your toolbox.
