You will be very happy with the modulator. Most 65 owners that know what it is and how it works wish they had one. Why? Because it does the same thing the INTENSE unit does for the 65, only it'* adjustable without anything other than a screwdriver. It raises line pressure for the shift.

When rebuild time comes for you, ask me about shift kits for the 4T60E.

Standard PCM

And that'* it .

Future plans don't include anything but getting my cat/muffler on, fwi, and this pcm.

Ofcourse, I'm doing the $50 core charge for my 97' because I can't afford down time while going to college. I'm assuming they ship me a programmed PCM, and when I recieve it, I ship mine back and get my $50 back?
Remember to remove your caselearn module from your old PCM and put that in your new one. Total time should be about 20 mins.

Intense makes a good shift kit. I installed one in my car, one of teh best mods I've done. Removed a fair amount of KR.

Where is that located? Will that stop me from having to go to dealer and getting them to do it for me? I've not had a look at the PCM yet, and don't really plan to until I receive other one. Is it kind of just a chip you pull out from that compartments on the side, or am I maybe thinking of my buddy'* 91' camaro PCM?

Yes, it will save you a trip to the dealer, 97s rock. You will have no problem finding it. It'* a small door on the side of the PCM, held on with 2 bolts. Just remove the bolts, then the door. The chip is inside perhaps a inch or 2 in size. Pull that out and swap the chips. That'* it.
