Your honnestly going to pay $240 for that chip? For that much why don't you ask DHP to custom tune one for you? I'm not sure on this but couldn't you get a powertuner and use that?

I'm in touch with DHP right now. They haven't gotten back to me about a PCM, but their powertuner will work on the 1996 Bonnevilles.

Well there you go.... Why don't you '96 guys get a DHP Power Tuner? It will be like $400 but you get a DHP v.1.5, a scanner, and a tuner. Well worth the price if you ask me.

Ok, I know we've been over this before, and I know the starter of this thread has an L67, but could somebody remind me again why the owners of '96 Bonnies with L36s can't just send their PCM to Intense? It'* got the same motor, transmission, and interface as the '97+, so what'* the holdup?

Like I said before, I know the '96 SSEi models seem to be 'up a creek,' but an SE or N/A SSE should be able to utilize Intense'* service, shouldn't they?

The 96 has a 4T60-HD tranny(different programming) and I think the PCM itself is actually different.

That Jet actually got pretty good reviews. You have to realize that people expect the chip to be the one and only mod they do. By itself, a PCM will never do much. It'* the supporting mods it can wake up that make the difference.
