As the clusterf*** that is my fuel pump comes to a close (should get the car back on Monday), my thoughts again return to the plans I have for the car..
As it stands, I'm now in a position to start looking for bi-directional PCM diagnostic/programmers. Question is, do any of you have experience with the Tech 1/2's or aldl connector/software combos for an OBD1 '94? My base tune when I'm ready will be sourced out, but I'd like to have control over the inevitable fine tuning and slow "upping of the ante" that'll be required. I'd actually prefer a PC based solution since I'll be integrating one into the car, but both will work depending on reliability. PC software doesn't necessarily need to be free - I don't mind paying for something that gives me control, but I also don't want to spend an arm and a leg doing so when a Tech1 can be found as cheap as it can with a little bit of research.. That said, a good software package that lets me visualize guages on a screen without looking "cheap" I'd pay more for..
I realize this forum is more about the preservation of these cars and not the massive hot-rodding plans I have in mind, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
On a side note, if anyone has a lead on a LT1 4 bolt main block out of a truck within reasonable driving distance from central southern ontario, I'd be *very* interested in finding out the details.. The more stripped it is, the better - I can't use any stock components..
