that shouldnt be a deturnate to trying it.. im just covering my ***

Ive been dinkin around with new GMs latly and they all (that ive tested) have this bad torque managment thing... how to remove it...

Flat road
no cars
enough room to get up to 60mph (3 times)

turn off...
turn on...
pop it into gear...
floor it to 60 -- you dont have to go quite flat foot...
stop.
park.
turn off.
******repeat 2 more times..
at the end you should have a whole lot more power... but this may cause tranny problems down the road.. because the tranny is designed to handle not a hell of a lot of power... but if you ever feel the need to go drag racing you might want to try this before you go... this will probably only work on 00-present... if that... Also the torque managment 'granny mode' will engage again after some slow starts... ect..

Just somthing for a few of the the newer bonneville owners to try.. if they are so inclind...
*phew* That was tough to read ...dude..."spellcheck"...

That'* basically using the computer'* ability to learn the driving habits. And I think you're right, only the newer models would have that...

Hey....does the computer recognise between Driver 1 and 2 by learning both separately or does it average the driving habits of both drivers

........Baaaaaaaaaaaa....only ##@kin torque management I need is my right foot.

I need a custom burned PCM.

I know what you mean there. I have been wanting to G-Tech my car since I got it, but haven't had decent weather since then. I am sure your weather is worse, as we don't have any snow on the ground currently, but it has been raining for like 2 days straight, and it was snowing before that, and we had a few inches on the ground like a week ago.

I would assume the PCM doesn't know the difference between who is driving at the time. It isn't THAT sophisticated.

I agree. Thats why I'm glad my car isn't new enough to have any of that new technology crap programmed into the computer.

It should work "to a pont" in most GM cars from 98+ .

Its called the "timing trick" and its basically advancing the timing per current driving habits . Thats why most GM cars get faster at the track. For example (my 98 GTP):

Drove to NRP

1st run 13.8x
2nd 13.74
3rd13.62
4th 13.51

All 60fts were 1.96-2.04. So that wont explain 3tenths difference.

Our PCMs have a pretty sophisticated learning process (believe it or not). How ever they do revert back to crappy settings after "normal driving" very quickly. What I've learned-is if you have 2 or 3 bad 1/4 mile runs in a row, then your better of resetting your PCM and relearning it. Some PCMs just dont learn as quickly.

new transmission (needle bearing decided to cut loose and take a tour). IMO getting a custom burnt PCM would be a better deal than ruining your tranny.
