Id wait for your other mods (rockers, headers, etc..) before stepping down on the cooler plugs.

Just orderd my PCM from Intense a few moments ago! Didn't know if I needed a 2.89 or a 3.05, but after e-mailing and talking with Scott, he said he'd look up my vin# to make sure I got the right one. But I noticed that the site would not let me order untill I chose the 2.89 or the 3.05. I just made sure to explain what was going on in the upgrades area. Not sure if that was info on the transmission or some PCM date. We'll see in a few weeks.

I need to add this. I am very impressed so far! ----- Just put my order in for one today for my 1998 Bonneville SE. Communication with Scott was excellent! He even helped me find out what PCM to order, (2.89:1 vs. 3.05:1 finnal drive ratios of the Transmissions), I needed the 2.89 by the way. On top of that he let me know that it shipped out today as well and gave me a tracking number to boot. Scott will be getting more of my money in the futer fo sho![]

I said this on another post, but I'll say it here too: Too send my PCM for a custom burn to ZZP who'll have DHP do the work was going to cost me $300 dollars U.*. which did not inclued shipping as far as I knew. I just dropped $280 which includes core and shipping charges as well with Intense. So after core charges my outlay will be $180.

This is not a flame of DHP or ZZP at all because they do good work and market good products. They have always anserwed any questions that I've had in a timely manner and gone out of thier way to help me out. I may find that the Intense PCM is not to my liking, and decide to wait on a DHP instead. We can't say at this point. The only way to evaluate these things is to try things out. Add to the fact that this just happens to be a bit cheaper as well as available right now and you have my reason for my choice.

The PCM for my Bonneville SE arrived today around 5:30 P.M. yesterday. I had it in the car inside of fifteen minutes, and the only reason it took that long was due to having to go get some tools to disconnect the positive battery cable. I followed the instructions that came with the PCM even though the car started on the first try. First thing that I had to do then was go get some 93 octane fuel so at first it didn't run to well due to 1 quarter tank 87 still being in the car. I drove about 10 miles after the fill up and it seemed to drive better as I went. I also noticed that the shifts were firmer for sure. When climbing the hills that would kill its power when light or medium throttle was used before the new PCM; I now have a steady flow of power with no let up. Remember that I have the mushy 2.89 gears in the tranny. I must say that the car seems to have more low end power for sure! This morning I took the car out on the highway on my way back from work and saw an opportunity to run the car up kinda fast,(I know.... bad Earl...), the car has never gone past 105; and it was nice to hit 110mph before I had to shut it down for safety reasons. I also noticed that the cars acceleration is faster as well. She'* still a heavy car, but this was an improvement. Also I should say that I didn't have to paste my foot against the floor board; three quarter throttle was enough. At any rate I was pleased to run the car as it is. Bigger brakes are a definite need on this project! It'* time to add some other mods other than just intake under the hood too. One thing that I noticed that the car didn't do was the fan turn on after I shut the car down, but this may have been due to the car not getting much up over 180 degrees as the distances I coverd wern't massive. I should also say that it was kinda cool out for a Texas summer day when I drove the car. It is a nice touch for my SE Thanks Scott !
