Yup. It'* back at INTENSE right now. They're trying to trck down a code that was causing it to shift at max line pressure. They started off with the same tables they use for the 00+ SSEi, and there'* a difference somewhere in the code for the trans. Once they track that down, they should have a Standard PCM ready for the Ultras.
If yours is N/A, I don't think they've had a crack at those yet, so you'd want to call them.

Intense is your Friend!
The only major differences in mechanicals between his 97 and the 00+ Bonnie are the front trans mount, oil pan(SSEi is cast, mine is stamped), and spring/swaybar rates.
The front trans mount on the 97 is like mine, a squre chunk of rubber with a bolt through it. However, it can be easily swapped out for the 00+ hydraulic mount, or to a hockey puck mount, provided he gets the bracket for the hydraulic moount.
