Default programmer for a series one

i cant find much available. most sites only have pre-programmed mem-cals (chips)

has anyone ever used this, or have any suggestions to where i can find a programmer that will work for my 92'*

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/se...294967020+5570

but what im confused about is, the title says its a chip. then in the info, it says "Allows For Complete Drivetrain Tuning And Recording To Review On Your PC, Advanced Tuning Selections From Rev Limits To Shift Quality And To Monitor Transmission And Engine Parameters "

so is there software too?

That is not a programmer. That is an undesirable (poorly rated) eprom.

A programmer for your car will be custom-ish. It requires the purchase of equipment, software, hardware, and a good STRONG knowledge of computers, your current PCM, and automotive performance.

The cost will be fairly high at that point.

Please get specific about which car in your sig you're asking about.

i would want to program the prom primarily for the buick p/a. i have a prom from a 92 ssei that seemed to run the engine fine. but the gr for the trans is different from the ssei, to the trans i am running.

and by run the eng fine, i mean just by ear and feel. i will run my scanner on it to make sure i have no KR

If you need to have a custom ECM burned and know what you want you can contact Ryan at GM tuners. He will be able to make a custom burn for you for you to properly run your car the way you want. Just email him and then discuss what you want.

ryan was working with me on the w body computer. he is a great guy. very helpful, and reasonably priced too.

but i was wanting to have the option to adjust on the fly. and eliminate the wait time of shipping.

If that is the case then you are going to have to burn your own chips. That includes buying all the software and hardware, but the problem is that it is no wehre nearly as convenient as writing to a pcm on the fly like a power tuner can do. Also figuring out all that information is a pain.

Unless some of the club members who have been talking about upgrading our OBD1/1.5 PCMs to full OBD2 manage to do it. In which case I'll be jumping on that band wangon aswell.

Assuming your using a 92 L67 memcal..
For the software, you can tune on the fly with Tunercat RT Tuner.
You would need the license, definition file, and also a way to get a stock bin.
I know the discontinued Moates Ostrich 1.0 will work with the Tunercat program but I'm not 100% that the Ostrich 2.0 will. Just shoot them an email.
It does support your eprom though:
Quote:
27C128, 27C256, 27C512
And unless Ryan modded your 92 memcal, you'll need a chip adapter from Moates too.

Beyond that it'* a matter of researching GM, maf only based, programming.
Third gen f-bodies are similar and aside from asking questions, those setups are what I'm learning off of.
I can explain how to adjust fueling and a few other little things but I haven't dipped into spark yet.
(No real point to go nuts tuning since I haven't gotten rid of my idle surge no load problem)
It'* VERY overwhelming and none of the a/f or spark tuning is clear cut.

According to the ECM'* and PCM'* Supported page of the Tunercat site, they have a definition file for an "88 Buick / Pontiac LN3, 3800, V6" and it'* the the same eprom (27C256).
So, yes.
