Dump it. It'* damn hard to find the T2V pumps new or rebuilt anyway.

Did some more tweaking here and there, and now we have.....



Keep in mind that 1) This PCM is still locked. It runs for only 3 seconds due to VATS issues. 2) The tables are all wrong, so I have to keep my foot on the gas.

BUT IT LIVES!!!!

That is awesome! Congratulations. If you can make this a mainstream procedure, maybe Intense will start tuning Series 1 engines. It'* a long shot, but look at how far you have come with this!

I doubt Intense would support S1s, even IF this became mainstream. The market is nowhere near the size as the S2 crowd. And though I was pretty thorough with the harness modifications, it'* still a piecework harness. It was very time consuming to put it together, and do to it right will require LOTS of spooled wire and new harness connections. That said, IF this harness was to be manufactured, the cost of it would probably be prohibitive for most S1 owners.

Once I verifiy everything, I'll make this conversion known to other forums, particularly Fiero and kit forums, as S1s are big with those crowds as well. Once I get feedback from them, I may start looking into manufacture of these kits. If I can make a few bucks doing it, great. If not, schematics aren't hard to follow, and I'll post a writeup from start to finish.

Its great to see the fact that it has function and works... Now we need to see the proper fueling and and Maps for all of the sensors to get it to run as well as a possible VATS delete/Bypass..

Good to see it try to run... More progress in the right direction

i wonder if you can pull better mpg. cuz the 96+ are supposed to be more efficient with the FI. i hope you can get it fine tuned to run like a dream.

Would you happen to know if the connectors, with or without wires, are available new from dealers? If you wanted to, you could sell a very generic conversion kit that has a schematic, all the connectors with 2-3 color coded dots to show start finish and top to bottom or side to side movement, some crimps, a crimp tool, and any special things you've used to make things think other things are attached. What a sentence! That seems to me like a complete kit. Wires can be purchased elsewhere so that no matter the car with the Series 1, you can always route the wires yourself and to your own desired length.

At least that would be something you could see if ZZP, Intense, W Body Store, and others could resell. It would be a good start to picking up the Series 1 crowd'* attention. Though I'm sure you've thought of that, I figured I might clarify my thoughts on the business aspect of this. If you're worried about wiring, leave the wires to the buyers and just specify Ohm requirements, if any. Good luck! You've done very well so far.

There is more to it than just wires and connectors. First off, someone skilled in electronics would have to be the one assembling the cables. There would still be a fair amount of cutting, splicing, and soldering. Secondly, this conversion would have to happen to a car that can be put down for a month or so...i.e., no daily drivers. Perhaps the most important aspect is that every year vehicle is different. 1992 will require the most work to get it ready, like converting the HB. Engine and sensor issues are non-existent for 1994/19995 BUT the harness would be different for the firewall. Not to mention that the A/C may not work (I have a feeling it will, but I still need to test), the cruise control will need to be reworked, and for some, losing T2V may not be an option for them.

It'* one helluva process, no doubt, and I will definately streamline a few things when I build the revision 2 harness. Who knows...I may build one for a 94/95 If I get a wild hair.

If you do the 94/95 conversion, I'm all in. Absolutely. We have 5 cars for 4 drivers, and though this means I'll be porking along in the Aerostar, it'* worth it.
