    Either i'm spelling this wrong or there's not much written on it.

    What's the label under my hood mean?

    It also has a sticker that says modifications have lowered the carrying capacity of the vehicle 1lb/ .5 kg.

    Does one sticker mean the other was affixed.

    The authorized modification label simply means that new software was uploaded to your powertrain control module.

    The payload reduction sticker is to comply with a law that says that if accessories are added over what was standard on the vehicle when payload capacity was determined, then the vehicle has to be labeled with how much the payload changes.

    SO, Trailer hitch and hood scoop take the .5 kg and the rest is ecm flash.. roger.

    I did find a TSB that relates to putting a sticker on there.. programming the shifting thing for the auto.. but mine's a 6 speed and has unrelated numbers.

    Wonder what needed tweaking...


    Thanks.
