Ok, just got off the phone with the dealership, it was a broken wire. I couldn't find it, nor could anyone else that had looked at it, so I dunno where it was broken at. But they also said that I had a piston 4 misfire in my code (im pretty sure its from my CAM, especially as bad as my car was running) so they also cleaned my fuel injectors. Expensive fixes for $275 I guess, but saves so much in the headache factor, now to go get it and put my intense pcm back in and see what it can finally do with the new cam


EDIT:
Scratch that. Picked it up and drove it about 6 miles and it started doing the same thing again. Stopped to get some gas and the SES light came back on to. So it'* back at the dealership to see what they can find this time.

Ok it appears to be fixed now. There was another break in the wire, this time where it was hitting the EGR cover. A bolt on it melted through the harness and plastic and it was grounding out on it. So I got the intense PCM and everything back to normal, and it runs alot harder, especially 40 MPH+. It scared me the first time it went up to 6K rpm to shift it was screaming so loud, lol. Only thing left is to drop my pulley down from 3.4 to 3.25 to make up for lost PSI from the cam. I want to get a scan tool before I do that though, just to be on the safe side. Probably the Aeroforce gauge. Also will have to get some flowmaster 80s, as the cheap turbo mufflers I had on blew out because of the HP (or so someone tells me, I just know it'* a hell of alot louder and rattles now).
