Im planning on getting the intense pcm myself, they have been very good about answering all my questions. It doesnt seem like there is a whole lot of people over at 3800pro.com, but its still a good forum.

Top dead center refers to timing. The top dead center point of the ZERO degrees rotation of the crank.

I should read up and then explain... But you all know me better than that...lol

The Car should have a Crank variation learn procedure performed on the car any time the PCM has been replaced, Maybe the PCM was removed and the crank was moved... You installed another PCM and turned the car over....

If you were then to reinstall your PCM, or say the Intense, DHP or the like reprogrammed PCM'* you would then need to have the crank variation learn procedure performed...

what happened to the days when you just let the Computer relearn? and that was it...lol

Things got a wee bit more complicated...

My dad bought an 82 Buick Century, Nice car.... First year for it to have the ECM... Man what a freaky goblin oriented car... The SES light would come on at random... The Car would stall on its own... Never could get it to run right.... Sometimes it would burn throught a qt of oil in a heartbeat... Other times it would use none... The cruise light would trun on and off on its own... at times the Cruise light would go on when you flipped the switch, but the cruise would be nonfunctional... It killed 3 batteries in 3 years...

But the AC and the Stereo were flawless...LMAO

Before that he had a 77 TA red with the 6.6.... I miss that car...

wow...82 century, I dont think I have ever seen a century that old before. Do you have a picture of this car? :o

Yea isnt it great when a car decides that its going to think for itself. My mother had an 86 corolla that was real bad, wipers would come on all by themselves, start the car the driver side window would go down by itself, cruise control...HA yea the cruise on this thing was either stuck on 68 or this car couldnt go any faster cause it would never go any faster. I guess we have come along way.
