This is somewhat confusing. The std. PCM which is good for stock or smaller pulley cars IS racing shiftpoints. Here you're saying NOT to raise shiftpoints UNLESS you have a cam or rockers. Please clearify.
Thanks

Correct. The std pcm was designed for a rockered car. We now offer an ala carte system where you can pick the appropriate settings for your current mods.

Rogue, What is different between a '96 and '97 series II? I don't understand why Intense doesn't have any programming for mine. I know the 4t65 tranny is more programable, and mine is the 4t60 , but can I get any programming for my 1996? Things like having the fans turn on at 180 and maybe some others if anything is available or me.

Thanks, Sam .
