I've been to the TunerCat site a few times. Printed out the '93 definition file, and the '95 file....and much has changed between those years. So much so that the EEPROM doubled in capacity. While the 94/95 PCM is probably fast enough to do what I would like to do, the OBD 1.5 protocol is something that kills that option for me. The options you listed are known to work for the 94/95 pcm...unknown for earlier years. If I were to buy those options and try them, and not work....I'm out on money. Buying an OBD2 PCM, on the other hand, can be sold to someone else on the club much easier than the Ostrich setup, if this fails. Again, looking for wide availability, because if this project fails, I can offload my materials easier.
I know you weren't knockin. This IS P&B, this topic IS a brainstorming session. And I am not afraid to eff things up with this car. It isn't a daily driver...never was, and probably never will be...so I can afford to be more creative with it and run risk of failure. Or take my time and be successful.
EDIT - I saw you posted the Ostrich WILL work for the '93 chip. Still doesn't allow me to run an Aeroforce in the future though
Oh...one other thing I would have to change on the motor...the EGR system.
