    Please point me to the thread on this board of anyone who claims to have changed any code except table values in a Voltec system.

    I don't say it can't be done - any code created in 2010 can be hacked in 2017 - I just say that no one has done it.

    As for externally charging or discharging the HV battery without the battery management system detecting it, you obviously don't believe in redundancy. There would be fault codes in seconds.

    To the modders that just sounds negative.

    So my response is: "Great! Go for it. Please post pictures and the step-by-steps for adding the 6.6kW charging to your Volt." There are many who would be interested in doing the same. When does this Volt 6.6 project start?

    Unless user WopOnTour joins the discussion, I think you may well be the most knowledgeable person on this subject who's posting here.

    So while this is a good place to ask your question, I don't expect you to get very high-quality responses that go beyond what you've already gleaned on your own (unless and until WOT joins the discussion).

    Personally, although this mod definitely isn't for me, I am curious to hear more about your efforts. The Volt has been available for almost 7 years now, it's about time we get some competent tinkerers who are willing and able to push the car beyond it's design limitations.
    I think you're right. I doubt I'll make much progress on it by myself, so I'll keep looking for other places to connect with people who can chip away on the project.

    (yet another engineer here)

    This thread brings to mind the phrase:

    "What could possibly go wrong?"

    Very interesting topic.
    Sorry GM does not allow to increase charging 6.6 kW
    My friend has a second battery, and he charges two batteries through one connector
