    Re: Finally Found PCM Programmer for 96-04 N* OBD-2!!!

    So you're going to ship your car to canada for a month or three?

    I also think you're overestimating the number of people interested... Especially if it's $500, and requires you to use premium from then on.

    One of the problems with OBDII computers, is you don't really know for sure that you got what you paid for. A great example is RSM racing. They were charging $500 for some OBDII reprogramming - and someone actually downloaded their binary, and low and behold, it was the same calibration as stock. Since then they've changed their name, and I think there's some lawsuit in the works. Buyer beware.

    '
    Some GM cars started flash programming in 94 while others were chipped! IE the 93 camaro was chipped in 94 (which was ODB I) were flashed!!! The corvette started flash programming in 1992 (still OBD I). OBD II officially started by Government regulations in 1996 all automobile manufacturers had to use OBD II !! The some of the reason for this was to make all codes the same for manufactures to follow!!!

    Does this include me? If I send my car to Canada for a few days and spend $500 I can have a Z car ? Is that what you're saying?

    Umm... didn't you just say...

    "right now im going to keep the company a secreat because they said that the 1st person who offers the car up will get a free reprogram and id like to be that person lol. "

    ??

    So go ahead. If it costs less than $500 to get the car there, you come out ahead!

    This is not like RSM, this is "Westers Tune", as soon as I saw Lyndons name I knew. They are one of the best, if not THE best in OBD II reprogramming. I read about them all the time on chevy truck forum.com. With them, I can say you will know what your getting!! And they also do OBD I chips. Not just the engine prom like Superchips used to have, but you also get the transmission prom, (called a dual mem-cal). Thats why it's $350. They are top shelf.

    Most people realize that the chance that Cadillac engineers left much performance laying on the tab that Beavis and Butthead can safely find is pretty slim. You realize that you will be depending on margins of safety that no longer exist?
