Default Question about Intense Racing

I have looked there website over many time and have wondered why there are no listings for Buick Park Avenue. I am thinking about doing a Level 1 Performance and I know all the engines are the same except one is supercharged and one isn't but they don't specificly list the Park Avenue.

The reason they don't list the PA in their packege area is that they can't program the PCM. They use HPTuners software, and HPT has never bothered cracking the PA'* PCM. All the mechanical parts will work, but you'll have to go to Digital HorsePower(DHP) for a tuner program.

Or what about some other alternatives to a PowrTuner. I'm just looking for some simple mods and maybe a removal of the speed limiter.

Now now Andy.. we all know Park Aves and LeSabres are all using the 3800 like the bonnie. You guys are simply ...slower.

Intense will work with you.. like they do Brian. Just omit the Park Ave part if you don't want Tim to call in "sick" the day your car is scheduled to be there.

No, but you can order a preprogrammed one from DHP.

If you want to order a performance package, you'll have to do the programming yourself, or get help from someone who knows how. INTNESE will usually knock the price of the PCM off the package.
