I have the DHP pcm and am extremely happy with it. I am not sure if they are fully released or not but you can e-mail them through www.3800performance.com. I believe Superchips and Jet also have chips but I have never used them. There are some members here that can give you more info on them.

The bonneville chip is not out yet. I don't know when they plan on releasing it. I'm betting a chip for the 97 SSEi won't be much different than one for the 97 GTP. On a side note, anyone out there who is serious about tuning a L67 engine, get one from a 98 or newer. The 1997 L67 had an analogue knock sensor. The digital ones are much easier to tune and are more accurate.

The earlier chips for the 'dumber' pcm'* like my 93 are a totally different ballgame. What worked for me may not necessarily work for you. Hector can tell you about the Jet offerings. I don't know about Superchips or Hypertech for the 97. I CAN tell you I'm extremely happy with my Jet, and I know Turtle is, too. Even happier than me, if happiness is based on speed

I'd be really tempted to get one burned for you as long as the cost was reasonable. I know the OBD2 chips aren't as 'robust' as the older ones. You'll have to pay to get the most.
