Default Upgraded PCM Installed

Had to perform the security learn and took it out last night for the
first time. The guys at Intense do excellent work! This made a hell of difference.
I love the way it drives and performes! No hickups or misshaps on Intense'* side. Excellent customer sevice and knowledgeable proffessional staff.

Did you buy a replacement core or did you send yours in to be programmed?

Did you get the basic programming or did you purchase extra tweaks?

What other modifications have you done to your car?

I have a '00 mean GREEN SSEI
I did send my PCM in for reprogramming. Saves you from have to to a case learn @$100 dealerdollars and I'm not planning on going back to original settings anyways
Mods are 180stat, NKG'*, 3.4 pulley, MSN wires and K&N repl. filter.
I got the std. programming with shift points at stock settings (+$10). They are slighly firmer put considered stock. According to Intense you do not want to change the shift settings UNLESS you're doing cams or rockers. You will love the overall difference!.

Go to:

http://www.intense-racing.com/

Look for the PCM / Ignition / Electronics section and everything you want to know can be found there.

If you don't want to do without your car then I suggest you buy the core option which a core will be programmed and sent to you and go get a case learn done, that'* my plan.
