Default computer

I'm thinking about having my stock computer tuned. i don't know where to go with the intense computer or the zzperformance or something else. does it gain you any hp? I'm not going to advance my timing at all because i can only get 92 octane. any information will be helpful.

thanks
Dan

What year is your car? If any year other then 97 you will need to have a CASE learn done. This can be a major pain finding a dealership that knows what you are talking about. Your best bet on that is finding a member near by with software to do it and not risk having your new tuned PCM flashed back to stock. Something that can happen if the dealership doesn't understand what you need.

Intense is your best bet. They deal with more Bonnevilles and have a good tune. The PCM will run you $99 I believe with a $100 core charge. Plus the CASE learn. Where are you located? I've flashed a few PCMs.

Ya, the CASE learn tells the computer where TDC is on the engine.

It'* a shame your about 300 miles from me or I would give you a performance tune, I only charge $100 to license my software to your car.
