Anytime cores from junkyards are used the risk is there that they may be damaged before we get them. Since using all brand new PCM'* would be cost prohibitive this is the only solution. Unfortunately, once in a while we get a bad one that flashes fine but has some hardware issues within it and in those cases we just swap them out with a different one no problem.

Scott is out of the office however until the 11th so I can't get you a replacement until then.

Just finished installing my replacement PCM and it'* working great. Thanks to the guys at intense. Everything seems to be working great. Tomorrow comes the New Iridium plugs (TR55ix) and new O2 sensor and fuel filter. I hope I can get some of my fuel milage back.

You should get quite a bit of your mileage back, The new 02, will help loads one person pmd me about a new 02 and he said he was getting 500 miles to the tank.

And I know from experience the new fuel filter with help also. It will help it run better and should also help with gas mileage also.

You may want to look into a cool air intake or fenderwell intake, that will help too because you are burning the fuel more efficiently.
