by "they" i assume you mean a shop. i would think they would check the u-joints first if you heard a noise when you went into reverse., but you just may wanna do that yourself, to be sure. feel free to post a thread in the lounge. then more can help you in one area.

in my 92 buick i have to use a different prom, or "chip". my stock 92 prom has settings for a nonsupercharged 3800. i need one to run the swapped sc'd eng correctly. and that one that i stumbled upon was from an ssei and also had the correct setting for the gear ratio of my trans, so i didnt have to get it re-flashed.

**edit** the coolest part is that he rang up the prom, eng cover, and trim pieces as "misc parts" for $3.63! and a dealer replacement would be $105.79
