Is this considered the ECM Module or is it something else? Is the box (computer) that it came out of called the ECM or is it something else? Thanks.

That is the ECM'* "Chip" This is what is replaced when you upgrade to a performance chip. It is the literal brain.

I grabbed this from a 92 SSEI in the JY. Will this work in mine without problems if I ever had to replace or use it to troubleshoot someday?

92 and 93 EPROMs are not interchangable. I've tried a 93 in my 92. It would not start. The crank sensor and pulley number are different. I suspect the sensor rings on the pulley are different.

that piece is not replaced when you add a chip, for instance the JET chip, you remove that, plug the jet into its spot, then plug the stock eprom ontop..(piggy back) design

That is the Memory - Calibration chip known as Mem-Cal .... That type of chip was used from 88-93 3800.... What does that chip come from? It looks to be from a 92-93... I'd have to look at the book to confirm that tho..

Nevermind...Just saw the post.... Its a 92 SSEi chip... It will not work on the 93 L27
