    95 LS, yes it says LS

    PCM for less. I think they charge $250 but you have to send yours back to them.

    Did the mail order once, I wouldn't waste my time with another one. Be patient and get it tuned on the dyno by someone good.

    I ran into all kinds of problems from PCMForLess... although he offered to rectify the problems, I simply can't be without a car while I send the computer back and forth over the course of weeks. I was given a computer from another car, a 2.2L Buick Aztec i think, it didnt even have my vin number in it, its running rich as hell, it smells awefull and i bet it could shoot flames... one of the emission protocols was disabled without my knowledge which means an automatic failure when i go for inspection, and without asking the tps was programmed to stay open at nearly 2100 rpm if the car isnt at a dead stop... its killing my shifting, i bet its wearing the hell out of the clutch, not to mention wasting gas and adding engine run time, and makes it impossible to be quite around town! everyone thinks your fuckin revvin the engine at them or showing off... overall it was a waste of money, do it only if you need something to get by while you find a dyno... there is just no other way.

    i vote for jeff (carolinaautomasters.com). to each his own but i know of countless tunes he has done that were dead on. if you have to drive down to n.c to get it done right, it would be worth it.
