Ok guys guess what its been done found hacked and gained. HP gains with an exhaust, tb and mass air flow sensor is around 40 hp. 0-60 times went from 6.5 to 5.6 no bullshit. It aint cheap though 900 bucks and its the only one built. I know what your saying bullshit right well to anyone doubting that i will provide the email which i speak with their head of PCM modification. Im willing to send it to anyone who wants to connect it dl the software and gain the power for themselves too but id like to get a small fee for it being i took the hit of 9 hundred for it. Consider this to be like sending away your pcm for reprogramming only you dont have to have down time of your car. Anyone and everyone let me know about it asap!

When proof is verified, I will consider.

And I mean fully, beyond a shadow of a doubt verified.

Other than that, I will file this next to the turbonator, and I will sooner lop off my own penis with a rusty butter knife than to pay someone just to give me info on what may be bullshit. This site is about sharing information, not trying to profit from it.

Sorry, you can call me a skeptic, but never a dummy.

I don't know what a larger MAF will gain you, but the exhaust and throttle body could be responsible for 30 of those HP.

Lets pretend all the gains are due to the reprogramming though. How do you do it without sending them your car? Do they email you a file that you take to your dealer?

I can't imagine a dealer that would reprogram your PCM with pirate software. It looks to me like you're going to have to buy yourself a TECH II with enough add-ons to do some programming. A mere $3000+.

CadillacSTS42005
09-08-06, 09:56 AM
its a programmer it connects to your car uploads and changes everything. it is not adjustable heres some excerpts from my emails:

Basic reprogramming, timming,fuel mapping its one of a kind. only one made to my knowledge.

this was a one only module which attachs in line at the pcm, there are no adjustments, it controls timming, fuel mapping and shift point it does not change the top speed limit on the vehicle, stock 0-60 time was 6.7 with module,exhaust and air filter 5.85

There are no more modules made.

Some pics would be good... I know they probably don't have them though.

Really, this sounds no different than any of the thousands of "resistor" chips on ebay, that fool the PCM into thinking it's 10 degrees outside.

Or does it let YOU control the timing/fuel/shift points? Can you change them with a laptop?

Do your North* have the cats still located on the exhaust? removing them should really uncork the exhausts alot,but would make it totally illegal.

yes i agree u can see his tires spin however a what 400+ hp sports car couldnt get away from my ETC with the upgrade common.... it HAD to of done something

honest take a look the end is marked by a bunch of cones...
the starting light was a high powered flashlight run by a starter girl.
its is a more for fun thing done on an old air strip.
this vid so far is the best i got on it cuz i was busy most of the weekend and am in class all week
believe me i fully understand the doubts, but looking at the vid it DOES show something, no stock ETC could run with that Vette even if the vette spun all through 1st

The Z06 runs 11's from the factory. You would need about 500hp at the wheels to hang with one. Or a really bad driver.

09-11-06, 02:37 PM
im tellin you he wasnt a bad driver he said he hit over 100 in that 1/8 mile he used his on board timer and such i forget his time though. i know this isnt enough to convince anyone i just though id share what i have. this is better than nothing and it does provide something.

Something fishy, maybe the corvette did it because he was losing it but the impala guy was cleary trying to not win that race. The Covette would run away from your car no problem at all even with 40HP, the weight differance alone. Why they would use the brakes instead of lifting I don't know.

I should also not on your youtube listing your car is puffing out some smoke, need to do more wots or something is wrong with it.

Fuel for the fire and it would be nice to have a picture of the 900 dollar module next to your car with the bill of sale.

and on a side not watch the movie their brakes go on MOMENTS before the cones. again the CONES DO NOT MARK THE END OF THE TRACK THEY MARK THE SIGNAL OF WHO ONE AND WHERE TO SLOW DOWN!!!!

as soon as the car is back here i will show it believe me
it just really pisses me off that ive never lied on this forum ive been here this long and its bash on my crediability because i dont have bulliet proof showings of it, i posted what i have and was trying to hide the company till i got the item and tested it and showed it off.

If you look carefully, it looks like the vette started pulling hard towards the end of the run. Probably caught some traction at that point. Kind of hard to tell, it would have been better to have someone on the other end of the track.

I don't think you're lying to us but I think there is a pretty good chance that whoever you're dealing with is less than forthright. Respect is something a young guy like you has to earn. Before us old guys are ready to take everything you say at face value, first you have to have a track record. For now your track record appears to be you being led down the garden path. We're all going to learn something together. Let's hope it's something good and then we'll all be happy. Until then we can all be polite and listen to each other as we hash it out.

Because it was made 6 years ago. Because it says prototype on it, it's probably the only one.

CadillacSTS42005
09-13-06, 08:38 PM
i contacted jet chips on it
read the thing
its a prototype as of 5/24/00
they never produced it
they were working with XMS to make them but due to lack of interest the project was shut down.
how many times do i have to say this?
i even spoke with the owner of jet chips
his words were that it was designed and built as a prototype for testing by xms racing to work on their supercharger project. it was stage one of a several stage project into hacking the N* pcm. The project was shut down due to lack of interest.

09-13-06, 10:07 PM
This thing looks like a device to offset the data between the sensors and the PCM like the fuel cut cheater I had on my old Mazda RX-7 turbo. Is it programable by you or is it WYSIWYG?

so far I stand corrected, if this car was my own and I knew I had a steady flow of income I would in a heartbeat help get the party started on this thing. If that link is correct it makes a FWD eldo go as quick as the new STS RWD northstar, very impressive.

As others have said though, you could get gains like those from freer louder exhuast and such.

I think I read someone on this forum bought and programmed thier own piggyback computer which basically lies to the PCM about inputs, that in its self I think is the route to go and if I remember was much cheaper than 900. I wonder if they decided to produce it how much they would ask.

Being out of warranty for several years now on my 98 deville I would have no problem putting a mod like this on it if known to be stable and such.

CadillacSTS42005
09-13-06, 10:24 PM
again its the only one
idk how to make more and i wont have my 900 peice of equipment ripped apart to see if we CAN make more
its mine all mine and i love it she has so much more ballz i cant begin to describe
and most off i deserve it cuz unlike everyone here who complained about wanting hp im the one who emailed many companies searched day in and out and finally found this.
as far as im concerend everyone who doubted me and accused me of all people of lieing should have no business talking and telling me what i should or shouldnt do with my chip.
in my book me eldo1 and mark99sts are the only ones who should have access to shuch a toy because we are the major ones who actually try to provide this forum with help and more performance options for our cars.

im my post was I was refering to "this car" I was refering to my fathers 98 deville, not your eldo, after re-reading my post I can see how it sounds like I was telling to you what to do.

How much were you considering a charge to "barrow it" for a download? I live up in the Buffalo NY area Cheswick is near pitsburg if I recall, and do you know if its able to be used on other northstar equipped vehicles? That is of course after we can get some dino/time slip results.

And to Eldo, has your TB post been moved/deleted? I can't seem to find it, was wondering your prices and such, I was debating to at least remove and polish it myself since it would be hard to have much if any downtime on my (well fathers, soon to my mine :)) vehicle.

Thanks.

yea cheswick is right outside of Pittsburgh

idk they told me it dled into the computer and then changed it, you could leave it there or remove it, it didnt matter. if you wanted to go back to stock youd have to take it to the dealer and have them flash the pcm. my parents dont want it so i have been forbidden from testing on their cars to see if its removeable for myself

idk they told me it dled into the computer and then changed it, you could leave it there or remove it, it didnt matter. if you wanted to go back to stock youd have to take it to the dealer and have them flash the pcm. my parents dont want it so i have been forbidden from testing on their cars to see if its removeable for myself

Interesting. If that's true, I give them more credit than I did before.

They must have found the ALDL parameter that reflashes the EEPROM.

Somebody spend the extra $40 to do a before/after dyno. Or - ETC97- offer someone a $40 discount if they do a few dyno runs

i would
but this is why i love my family
my rents said no testy on their cars
but my dad just got an STSV and so the 98 STS is now my sisters
she owes me big time and that STS is fully stock
im thinking a test is in order hahahahhha

or i could just have my dealer reflash my pcm being they STILL have my car
dyno it
and then plug and dyno again
but i cant even put gas in my ETC right now haha

got bless the beater CTS 2.8 they gave me as a loaner while they work on my 97 (they gave me a full tank haha)
wow the thing has NO ballz
its really dissapointing
glad i got my ETC over that CTS

I hear the 3.6L CTS has much better get up and go than the 2.8L. Not sure how it compares to the ETC. Probibly handles a bit better from that nurburgring tuning.

thats one thing I wish this module would do, is get rid of the speed limiter, heck 112mph doesn't even shift to 4th gear.

Send me one, and I can probably make more. It depends on what exactly they used, but if it's a standard microcontroller and memory, I can probably do it. (I'm majoring in electrical engineering.)

lol cant "send" you one
if you got 750 you can buy another and make more lol
Bobs got one left the two included mine.

No, there just isn't enough interest. Even if I could build them for $100, I doubt anybody would buy them. They're unproven dyno wise, and not many people are interested in performance items.

Sad but true. Mark my words, that chip will still be for sale come next year.

but hey its about the only performance thing we got and after this ill have the fastest Caddy w/o forced induction.

Do you plan on putting your car on the dyno?

I would love a plug and play solution, but as I have said along with just about everyone else in this thread we need to see numbers.

Now, you don't have to put it on the dyno and post the numbers up as you don't really need to prove anything to us if you yourself aren't selling them, so don't take it as we want to go blow 80 bucks on the dyno just so they can sell their last one. But I would be the first one to overnight them 750.00 if it is what you claim it to be.

I have documented dyno runs for my car so the dyno would be the first place I would go to see the improvement.

Pep boys??? I didn't even know they had dynos.

I found the one I use by going to the Dynojet website and using their search.

Here is a link.

Automotive Dynamometers - Innovations & Performance Products from Dynojet.com (http://www.dynojet.com/dyno_centers/automotive/index.aspx)

But I guess if Pep Boys has one and they don't have high school auto shop students running it you might be ok... i personally prefer the race shops, a little more knowledge there. Yet this isn't always true... the first shop I dynoed at couldn't spell Northstar let alone know anything about them.

I had to show them where to get spark signal from, which can be tricky on a N*.

A 3-letter reply to a 2 2/3 year old thread isn't necessary, especially when it has nothing to do with your car or programming and offers no further advice.

I thought it was interesting to see that this thread went nowhere. I am int interested in programming my 05+ STS, and have been able to find little mods besides exhaust.

If your engine controls use the same, or close to the same, OBD-II and PCM programs as our 2000-2004 FWD Northstars, we're all out of luck. Nothing has come around except speed limiter removal. Either Wester's Garage network or AJxtcman in here can do that.

Myself and EFILive are working on the 04 and 05 RWD software. I have been in contact with Ross at EFILive and he has sent me some files to work on and test :yawn:

Ross has recently picked up a RWD Northstar engine and trans for a project. :bouncy: That is a big deal:shhh:

The entire PCM reprogramming for the 00 - 04 FWD Northstars is way on the back burner. Don't hold your breath. If you read this entire thread and the companion Tuning thread in this Forum you'll find that there were never any real gains discovered. Lots of burnt up PCM's, though.

If you're looking for something after 2004, maybe there's a lead up in the newer individual car threads ^^^^.

:thumbsup: Welcome to the club !!!! You're in a long line.............

There are lots of other small tuner tips you can do, and it's all in here, takes NO aftermarket money - it's all DIY with common parts - and the engine looks stock.

Save up a bunch of $$$$ and install a CORSA cat-back. (None for Eldorado) The largest gain of any mod currently on the street. Change to a WIX air filter: more surface area = less restriction.

Be very careful of so-called "CAI kits". For this run of FWD Northstars they tend to cause a midrange power suckout and set engine mixture codes. All been documented in here for years.
