Well, going out on a big limb here....(wth a lot of weight). Scott is going to hook me up with one of the BadSSEi'* old race PCM'* and we are going to try it for a few runs just to see if it will open up. Way to many major changes to run it as a full time pcm i think but it will definately let us know if the bottleneck is the pcm. Kind of thrilled, kind of scared chitless about it, but hey its all about the search for answers....

Very cool that Scott and Intense Racing is backing up your corner here. Keep telling us everything so I can My HP can grow with yours.

Guess I'll be visiting Charles Breyer from DHP soon.

That sounds great. Hopefuly we can try to get around some of the stupid programming these things have. I can't wait to see the power you make with that.

Just a word of advice though, watch the tach with that PCM, as I am sure it is set up with a high rev limiter for some sort of cam. Keep the revs down below 6400 and you should be fine with your stronger springs and roller rockers and all, but I just thought I would warn you, the rev limiter on that thing is probably around 7k or so. I'm sure Scott will be watching out for you and all, but I would hate to see you blow that thing up.

Is that the consensus that the SSEi PCM has more conservative settings than the GTP?
Yes. We pretty much KNOW that the SSEi PCM is way more conservative than the GTP'*. And an SSEi with a pulley, should run just about dead even with a completely stock GTP because of the weight disadvantages among many other.

Yea, we discussed this tonight, his shifts are something like 7 grand, some other issues to watch out for as well. We are thinking of setting up a happy **** using the IAT input to advance some timing. Pontiacdad we should be doing tis sometime this week. INTENSE is very busy gearing up for IDDV and MGM.

We just went out earlier today and got the happy **** on the GTP set up all properly. That is one of the best tuning mods available for these cars IMO. That should greatly help you assuming you are getting no KR. 1 degree of timing is ~2whp. If you add 5 degrees to that beast, thats 10 wheel horespower!
