That chip needs over 100 miles to allow the PCM to adapt to it. Mine took at least that long.

hey Will good thinking about the PCM having to kinda adapt to the new chip. that makes some sense. couldnt you just undo the battery for a while and let it reset so that when hooked back up it would just put into effect all the correct parameters and stuff?! Please correct me if i am wrong or somthing.

Will...GM used to recommend 1/2 hour of idle in park for a car to "learn" idle after battery is unplugged long enough. With this being around the same principle, couldn't the PCM learn the chip in the same manner?

Even a stock PCM needs time to adapt to driving style. Idle will smooth out after a few minutes, but the tiny changes from the PCM programming can take some time.

Off topic slightly: Bill are you saying our PCM'* do learn our driving styles to a degree?

Yup. Exactly. Many of us here have experienced it. You need to be quick on the throttle several times on the way to the track in order to get the most when you're there.
