The advantages of course will be lower price and i'm not sure of disadvantages (if any) at this point. I will keep you all updated as I begin my quest for the PCM.
Well, i did some research and here is what I found: The intense "Standard PCM" offers these changes...
"features speed limiter removal, slightly higher shift points** and rev limiter, transaxle line pressure adjustments**, air/fuel adjustments, ignition timing adjustments, knock retard decay rate adjustment, cooling fan control adjustments"
The DHP PCM offers these...
- Speed limiter removed
- 3-1 and 4-2 skip shifts (Active in performance shift mode only*)
- Transmission line pressure increased (Active in performance shift mode only*)
- Shift points moved (5800-6000rpms) (Active in performance shift mode only*)
- Fan turn on points altered:
- 186 degree turn on
- 2 minute fan on at key-off (this feature activates when engine coolant is 179 degrees or greater)*Does not apply to 2000-2003 Monte SS
- MAF calibration adjusted for proper operation and year
- Digital Horsepower Inc. fuel/spark adjustments:
- En-richens fuel delivery for critical problem areas
- Provides a consistent power gain across the entire power band
- Reduces spark retard (knock retard)
- Removes "40MPH WOT lag"
- Dynamometer testing has shown up to 20 HP gain in 60 degree temperatures on a development vehicle. Click here to view the dyno results and detailed explanation.
*NOTE: Cars without the performance shift button will require a wiring harness modification for these shifting features to be enabled."
By the looks of this, the DHP offers quite a bit more like the skip shifts and etc. I may be missing some key factors and if so, please fill me in, but that is what I found with a quick research.
