Yeah, i kinda figured i was *.o.l. But it was worth a try. I guess now I just gotta break him the news. Yeah, jmfc, we are pretty close. The guy has owned the car for quite awhile, but that would have been pretty weird if it was the car you sold. Thanks for the help again fellas

just wanted to give an update. I just talked to the guy, he is not buying it won't work. He says to just put it in and he will get it going. i hope he has his wiring hat on, because he is going to need it.

Is this a car you need? Just let him read some of the stuff on this forum, and then hopefully you'll save yourself a whole lot of time and hassle.

He sure is going to need it... the Tables and timing maps will be off... as well the 97 PCM has to have the usage of the MAP sensor.. And the fuel rain is in a different position... And then if it does run off the 97 PCM, it will not be too happy with the L27... Then it will most likely be running ultra rich...

But hey, if he doesn't want to listen...Oh well

I explained all about the map sensor, timing tables, etc. and it isn't registering. I could rewire the whole thing and use the original computer. you know, sit down with the two harnesses and a schematic and spend two weeks wiring it and working out the bugs. But I don't have two weeks, and he doesn't have the two weeks worth of money to pay me. I will get an answer from him tomorrow. Either way it was an interesting experience!

Don't do it. It won't be right unless he'* gonna use the older engine'* sensors and computer. And then, you'll be down 35-40 horsepower. It'* so not worth it. Why let him put the wrong engine in and then charge you extra labor to make it work? Don't fall for it.

Absolutely! I couldn't have written it any better.

It is his car, I am the one doing the work. I agree with you guys, I don't want to do it either. I told him it would not be right and I didn't want to see him waste his money. We will see what he says tomorrow.

Oh, I missed that it was his car, not yours. Hey, it'* all his, I suppose. You can only give him good advice and hope he listens.

Yep. that is true. Like I said I could rewire it and use the old computer, but that takes a long time, and isn't the goal to kinda move forward with technology not backwards? I am all about doing custom work and figuring out problems like this, but it is not like he wants to do anything but drive it to work. If it was a project car or something like that, then maybe I would get out MY wiring hat! But that is not a what he is looking to do he has got some other pontiac he wants to do all that stuff with. But like I said thatnks for helping, who knows what I would have got into without you guys' info!
