Default Intense pcm installed

Hey gang, it'* me again. Just got the intense pcm installed yesterday. And all I can say is Man what a difference. Everything seems better, the shifts are way firmer, the takeoff is much improved, acceleration is killer, really I just can't say enough good about this mod.


For anyone out there in bonneville land that hasn't added a new pcm from intense, do it now. You will be impressed. I just can't wait till I get my plugs and wires and do my tune-up. That is also when I'll be adding my CAI.

If anyone has any doubts or ?'* about this mod feel free to ask me I dont know much but I will share what info I have.

Peace,

Tim (bonnevillemac)

Removing the top speed limiter sold it for me
I was one of the first 10 to get the upgrade and have no regrets.

With your mods an intense standard burn would do.
You have to do the security reprogram (takes about 20min) after the simple 2 connector install. Its also a good idea to get a case learn done, about $25 from a willing dealer.

It is a standard intense pcm. The way I had mine done was stock idle speed, if you are not going to do rockers or a cam get stock shift points otherwise it bumps the shift points up a little. If you are planning on a hi flow cat or removing the cat altogether have the 02 codes deleted.

The installation is abou as simple as it gets. You just take the front cover off the airbox remove the filter and the pcm is in the bottom of the box. It is held in place by a tab on either side of the pcm you work one side loose and then the other. The connectors come off with a 8mm socket (the best I remember), you loosen the nuts and pull the connector out. The connectors are color coded, and so is the pcm. The pcm itself has either clear or blue written on either side just match em up, plug em in, tighten the nuts and you are good to go.

As P-dad said you just have to do a security relearn. Just follow the instructions intense sends and you are done. It would be a good idea to do a case learn also.
I haven't done it yet but I intend to.

Get one you'll not be disappointed

Yeah, I had been wondering what a "case learn" was too.
