Default Quick PCM question

Ordered my new PCM from Intense last night, shoudl have it in a few days. I assume to change it I simply remove the old one, and connect the new one. And that'* it? I have a 97 so it'* my understanding I will not have to worry about a case learn.

I will also be going in Wednesday to get a new 80 series muffler. Going to be a good week.

It'* also recommended to disconnect the battery before removing/installing the PCM, to prevent shorts.

Good idea, I'll remember to do that. Better make sure I know where my code is to get my radio working again.

Yeah, I always disconnect the battery when I replace a sensor/module, just to be safe. Sometimes a fuse.

I have a stock valve train. Will I be OK with 6000rpm shift points? I do plan to upgrade my springs, but for now will I bo OK. I see red line on the tach is 6000 and I assume this is set lower then it really is. Thanks.

REMEMBER!!!

you need to remove your knock module (the square cover with the allen head screws) from the OLD PCM and switch it over to the INTENSE PCM. If you do this you dont need a case learn done
