ya Kyle there are about 100000 guys in the IL area, and i think someone responed on 3800pro about a case learn

I have Tuned mine with the HPTuners, and its nice to be able to make the changes on the fly, and customize exactly what you want. Also if you find someone with a Tuner you wouldnt have to get a Case Learn done

but in response to your question, i have the PCM changes done to the Trans (Shift times decreased but i have not done any shift pressure changes) and there is a small difference

Great responses, but this begs the question as to weather or not a simple "cookie cutter" PCM is what I need.

What is the overview of everything Intense does to their PCM'* and how much more could I do with a tuner? Also, what is the difference between the DHP and HP tuners?

How does "one-size-fits-all" work for you? If it does, GO FOR IT!

However it doesn't work for me...

I'll be tuning my car for just the way I've modded it and just the way I drive.

EDIT:
Allmachtige, you are in a place where there are A LOT of other Bonnie drivers. Out here in CA, there are so many imports, I barely see any Bonnevilles. I'll bet you can find a BCer that has a tuner and is close to you that is willing to help you get it all set up. I think you'll be much happier in the long run. Plus, you might get a great new Bonneville friend in the process.
