Default Ordering PCM from Intense which Stage should I get?

My order did not go through the other day for some reason ( and I am glad that it did not )...because I need to re-think what Stage PCM to order. Given my current Mods, what do you guys think?

I'd recommend the INTENSE Standard PCM with your mods.

Hope this helps.

off-topic, but do you have a sound clip of your borla exhaust? I have Borla too and was just wanting to see the comparison.
here'* a clip of mine

We're going to try and crack all the 1996 through 1999 Bonnevilles during the month of June.

I agree. The web site shows what you should have to get each stage. With your mods, blackssei, the standard PCM would fit perfectly!

You may gain a little bit from it, but with no mods the PCM will put you out of your powerband for 5-600rpm at WOT in each gear. I really recommend a 180-tstat with the pcm set for it if you get it.
