Theoretically, if you had an OBD1 cable could you use it on a certain purple 93?

Yea I was looking at this, also. Seems like it will do all the stuff an autotap will plus give you the capability of actually changing parameters. Very powerful, very dangerous.

Very useful, very needed, very cool, very much anticipated..

I very much want one (if Hypertech ain't gonna get off their butt by April...)

What do you think PDad? Worth it?

Indeed, not for everyday drivers.

I dont know, $500 is alot to 'see'. I'll wait for reports from others. Would be fun to play with though and dangerous as Rogue pointed out. The hyper tech wont allow that much control and is not going to allow you to harm your car?

I've seen that before too, one of the guys form hptuners is on ILGPC.com, I think it is very cool and a great tuning device if you know what the hell your doing. Don't think it'* setup for newbies to computer tuning. sure you can change minor stuff by your self, but me change my MAF readings, don't even want to touch it.

Waiting to hear reviews, also want to find out what Rogue and Intense come up with. Still debating getting a custom DHP from my local DHP guy. That still wining in my book, I hear he does a great job and is close by to make adjustments for me if needed.

Just don't know what I'm going to do.

Taylor if you have a local guy that you can take your car to thats a huge advantage, same thing for Rogue too.
I like Scott'* experience with Bonnevilles, especially 2k ssei'*

ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING! I wouldnt touch it unless someone gave me what I need to put in. Looks like and easy way to screw up your engine if you arnt an expert.
