Well if GM could figure out how to program a transmission to downshift and FCA could figure out how to program their powertrains so their vehicles would perform somewhere in the realm of their power ratings most wouldn't need to "alter" the ECUs.

You can thank CAFE for that.

This,

(from the article)

''The EFF thinks the industry's desire to block exemptions has more to do with profits than safety. As software becomes easier to update, automakers could sell these performance upgrades on an a la carte basis. Because a favorable ruling would strengthen their control of the software, the car companies could potentially force consumers to only have their vehicles fixed at their dealerships or preferred repair shops.''

Sounds about right.
