    What tuners do we have here?

    I personally do a lot of personal tuning for the LT1/4L60E. I have capabilities to do most any GM car that has OBD1.

    I use TunerCat and TunerProRT.

    TunerProRT is free, TunerCat is available at TunerCat.com, and is well worth the $$.

    Re: What tuners do we have here?

    TwEECer is for Fords right? I haven't heard of them just what little I have seen on the net.

    As for HP on the LT1, I would say 10-15 hp is reasonable. But the improvements in transmission shifting and driveabiliy are soooo well worth it.

    You can turn off EGR, or change when or how it turns on, you can turn on/off the AIR pump (legal on 95-96 models per EPA), you can change timing anywhere, you can remove the MAF, you can tweak the timing retard for traction control, you can change shift times, you can change shift pressures, you can change shift speeds/rpms, you can change idle speeds, you can do all kinds of good stuff, the list goes on and on!

    You can get a cable at akm cables or pcmperformance.com. I use the latter.

    TwEECer is for EEC-IV Fords, which is most OBDIs including my Mark VIII.

    Re: What tuners do we have here?

    Considering I work for the company who designed and manufactured your PCM, I should know, but we don't have the tools like that, we don't even do any software programming, Ford doesn't want us to. The factory does to a limited extent, but most of the software is programmed by programmers and we solder the memories to the board already programmed. Ford controls the software, we have nothing to do with it and Ford doesn't want us to know much about it. Silly eh?

    I work with one of the guys who was the processor guy on the Marauder PCM. But he works on cell phones now....

    What do you make of this thread on my L29?

    http://www.hptuners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9754

    Any ideas?

    (the L29, the engine that should have been put in the 1994-1996 Fleetwoods....)

    Re: What tuners do we have here?

    No leaks. Even then, the PCM would see lean, not rich. It thinks it is waay rich (-18.0% LTFT) Both O2's are new and both agree on -18.0% rich. Note -18.0, not -18.1, not fluxuating, a strict -18.0%. Only time it deviates from it is decel and idle. So it strikes me as PCM intentional, but it doesn't make sense why, if it intentionally is doing it, why would it trip a code then???

    I have 2 PCM's, stock and tuned, both are the same, -18.0%

    Cool, I am looking to get TunerCat II soon. HPT and EFILive are too pricey for the GUI and a $100 per car license...
