What year and model do you have? It all depends on that, and we can't answer that until we know. Can you please put that information in your signature by editing your profile?

correct, there are no "chips" or piggyback modules available for a 97, the only option would be to reprogram teh entire PCM module

Pcm tuning usually comes after some major upgrades. You may want to mod more first and then take full advantage of those mods with a reprogrammed pcm.

The PCM by itself won't really gain you much. It'* intended to 'wake up' other modifications.
