Torque management is still being looked into, that may be part of my 5000 rpm KR. PDad, you can still do your smoke shows just disconnect the two front wheel speed sensors from the hubs. Taylor, i'm not sure about skip shifts i havent tried it yet, just got out for a bit to test some of they atap numbers. My 02 numbers are in the 920-930 I think i may want it a little richer. Next track date is IDD V but im hoping for a dyno before that.

It feels a lot more peppy than it did even just with the intown stuff.

I am interested in the Intense PCM, but he will not do a program for gearing changes. Thats the only thing holding me back, the 3.29 gears. Maybe if I keep on him he will give in.

i think the 3.29 change is better done with a relucter wheel and other hardware. You dont want the car undrivable if your pcm goes out and also its easier to diagnose when you dont have to worry about the programming.

Are those PCMs only for L67'*?

Currently only for 00 SSEi. Most likely will be for 01+ in the future. So yes, only L67.

All i have to say is WOW!

The car is the best it has ever been. It pulls incredibly strong up into 3rd gear (somewhere around 100) and I have not pushed it passed that yet as the roads are still slick. I still have a bit of KR but my timing is no longer limited at 15 by the stock programming so the few degrees im seeing are still leaving my higher than 15 degrees. A bit more investigation on my part to see about the KR and I think i will be ready for IDD V
That was my impression also with the new PCM.
Even my wife screams the first time I took her for a drive. Pulled strong up to 100 mph on a stretch of road that I used to only get up to about 90 on.
The downshift and shift point rpm increase with resulting pull is almost scary.
I drove my Firebird today and I swear that it'* equal to the Bonne now in acceleration.

I'll just HAVE to go out tonight and try some good burnouts to see about the torque management.

Great news Todd! I'm glad 8-Ball is performing more like you want it to. I was thoroughly impressed when I drove it last month and I didn't even floor it! Good luck with your future plans!

This KR is not caused from heat. The computer detects wheel spin and pulls timing.
