Default pcm

Hello everybody,

I got a question bout the pcm from intense. If I order the standard pcm will I have to pay a $100 core charge as well as the $100 dollar price for the pcm??

Also If I send my stock pcm back will they refund the core?? I know I sound like a little girl asking all these questions but I am new to this online ordering thing.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mac

You will have to pay the core charge. But when you return your original PCM, they will send you a check to reimburse you for the core.

Thanks so much for the help.

So when I order the PCM. I'll have to pay $200 plus shipping. Then when I receive my new pcm, and send them my old one the send me a check for $100. Correct??

Cool, Cool

I'll be ordering my parts this month and cannot wait. I'm gonna do a PCM, FWI, new plugs, new wires, some exhaust work, if I can find them I'm gonna do new rotors for the rear also, and maybe a new head unit, I'm taking off a day of work so I can get this done. Then if we had a meet in Ohio that same weekend in April, that would be cherry.

I can't wait to get started, I'll be doing the work myself so I'll be busy but it will be worth it.


Sorry about the rambling I just get way excited when I talk about it.

Holler back,
Mac

Hey thanks for the link.

Thats sort of where I figured youd have to drill it. It sounds like a pretty good thing to do with the T-stat. I guess it just keeps the engine cooler huh??.

No not really, just let'* the engine warm up more gradually instead of the t stat opening and letting 195* coolant go flying all over a cold motor.
