I don't think you'd really benefit from the 94-95 PCM set up...

At least with the 93 you should still be able to get a Jet Chip iirc

no, they are not interchangable. well, niot plug and play.

but like i said you may consider asking ryan if he can re-flash ur stock chip to achieve what ur looking for. much cheaper than the jet chips.

IMO, I'd stick with the 93 PCM for the Jet chip, I'm not sure if the 94 OBD 1.5 PCM would work. (no idea how different they are)

and holy CRAP at that video. that thing sounds AMAZING.

did you put EM gaskets on it?

almost makes me want to rebuild my L27, for no good reason the result is just too good to pass up. Might have to consider a flowmaster too. that is one SWEET sounding exhaust.

OMG Know it does sound much better in person, definite difference in person, I can't wait to hear her new tone!

And Sam, At the moment all I have is an Air intake, My plans are a magnaflow Cat, 1.8 rockers, jet stage II computer chip and ported Lower Intake and EM'*. and the chip will be last thing to go in with those mods, which I'm looking to have in about a year.

Thanks for clearing some of that up for me guys.

well, i would recomend having a stock chip custom tuned. it will be unique to your car. not generic for "stages".

Put some miles on it the past few days. So far, things are looking good! No unusual noises, no fluid leakage, and starts at the first bump of the key. Downshifts just fine at highway speeds as well.

Aside from doing the proper R134 conversion, it'* ready to go.

I drove it around the block prior to the teardown. I can't say it'* any more powerful, though it is way more responsive and alot less noisy. My opinion is based on alot of wheeltime behind the '94 SSE, which I feel the PCM can more aptly adapt itself and has a more agressive program.

However, to get the full benefit out of the new motor, the injectors will need to be professionally cleaned, and the converter replaced. The trans seems to be taking it well, but with any unit that has over 160k on the clock, it will need to be freshened up as well.
