    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    well i am new to this board and to the world of programming. i am just starting out and found that i am pretty clueless to what i am suppose to be doing. so i am just going to hang around and watch and learn for the most part.
    but other than that i am a better wrench turner than i am at writing code. but if i have anything usefull i will post it.
    btw name is don ;D

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hi All,

    I have two hats: My vendor hat, and my hacking hat. I try hard to balance them. I am not lurking/posting on this board as a vendor - I am here as a hacker.

    I have gathered a lot of information from these types of forums and anything that I have learnt through these types of forums and anything that I have hacked out on my own I will be happy to share. I don't have the information in a nice neat pile - its all in my head so if anyone wants info just ask.

    The only thing I cannot do is share commercial-in-confidence information.

    So if anyone has any questions about ALDL or OBD-II for GM vehicles, or if anyone needs help writing code (VC++ or Delphi) to communicate with GM-PCM's just ask I will provide as much assistance as I can.

    Regards
    Paul

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hi!

    First I'd like to say thanks to Chris for the wonderful job he's doing helping out. I really appreciate it!

    Paul, thanks a ton for helping as well. I'm very glad to have the hacking side of you here.

    My name is Keith. I've been PCM hacking for about a year now. Nothing major until just recently though. My method is to remove the 28F400 flash chips from the pcm with a heat gun and then read them in my EMP-20. It's not the most easy way, but for me right now its the only way.

    I put up this board for several reasons. I have learned quite a bit so far and I would really like to share the knowledge. I also know there are many others out there just like me who would also like to share. And most importantly, I would really like to see us all work together and perhaps come up with a DIY editor for all OBD-II PCM's at a very affordable cost. I think that would be awesome!

    I hope you all enjoy your stay here! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make it better. Thanks!

    - Keith

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hey all,

    My name is Deidrick. I graduated college almost 2yrs ago(EE w/ an emphasis on electronics). I have been working as a semiconductor product engineer. I do a little programming and alot of data analysis, mostly it is project management, lining the ducks in a row for a new product. I do have to do some troubleshooting and customer support.

    I like electronics. I am not that well versed in assembly. I never claim to be a programmer. I have experience with PCB design.

    I just want a way to easily change parameters in my PCM. Perhaps something like LS1edit. Custom programming exists, but I want more flexibility if I add more mods.
    I have had my car for 5 plus years, and I am tired of all the OBDII secracy.

    I am a DIY guy. While I may not have time for lots of things, I have done alot of the mods on my car myself(porting, etc.)

    DEE

    Hey All my name is Mike,

    Am a Gearhead (ME) by trade. Have a frankenstein 81 Camaro with TPI running on a 96 C/K ECM. ;D So i am still pretty new to this programing but started on the '165s. I know little about the flash pcms and would like to be able to change some stuff in the one i've got.

    Take it easy y'all

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Some of you may already know me, but I've been doing OBDI interfaces for a few years now. But I would not have gotten where I am without help from others. I'll help with what I know of, but I certainly don't know as much as I'd like to know about OBDII. Just a personal knowledge quest thing. OBDI, now that's an old pair of comfy jeans.

    My web site is http://www.akmcables.com (and for the harder core, http://www.mindspring.com/~amattei/aldl.htm - which has been up for 5 years now!).

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hello all, My name is Kevin. I am a machinist, and do a little tinkering on motorbikes and cars.
    I own an 86 S-10, which I bought new. The 2.8 ltr under the hood got to almost 160,000 km and spun a rod brg. I was not impressed with the performance of the 2.8 and decided that it was time for a V8. I was looking for an EFI ( I hate all the carb troubles) engine and ended up with a 1994 L99 and 4L60E. I am at the point where I need some help with my OBD1 PCM. Gotta run, questions later.

    Hello everyone. My name is John. I am currently Hacking the 93-95 northstar PCM. I am one of those curious guys that always has to have little projects. I want to know how things work and why things were done the way they were. I am an mechanical engineer with a better than average(for non EE's) electronics background.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    My name's Josh, I am a proud fbody owner along with a few other's so far. I see alot of people here are also members of cv6/fv6 forum. Basically, I wanna leech off of everything you guys have learned so far. I am hoping for a way to fine tune my pcm on my own. The crap guys so for $300, I wanna be able to do on my own. change the settings many times, and perfect if for my car. then add something to my car, and be able to tune it again 8)
    Basically I want the easy way out... follow keith's step by step directions and plug in my own settings :/
    being able to diagnose problems with the car would be cool too.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hello all,
    I'm an ex auto tech (or is that possible?), last 15 yrs working for an auto mfr. on the service side.

    Newbie to interfacing/programming using non-OEM tools, but all of you will help me figure that out, right?

    I'll be happy to share OEM insights where legal, but I'm not that brilliant, and what I do know is mostly ISO/Euro info using OEM tools. I'm really here to learn if I can tweak my new Harley (Delphi ECM). This should be fun AND a learning experience!

    Just call me JD.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hey all,

    I'm a 2 year Maintenance Tech. in the Navy. I primarily deal with the installation of Fiber Optics and power. I also do a little SA work when they are short handed on busy days. I have a very limited programming background, but I love to turn wrenches. Right now, I have a few mods that dicate some custom tuning, and have no true means to do this. I, like most others on here, am really just looking for an easy way to tune my car to account for new mods, weather, etc...

    Dee, it's good to see you here...

    Have a great day.

    Greetings, my name is Jim.

    I am a Maintenance Manager for a major So. Calif. Areospace Manufacturer. I hold a BS degree in Business Administration, and am working on a Masters in the same field.

    Cars, and trucks, have been a major interest of mine for many years now. Since the advent of computer controls into the automotive arena my endeavors have been limited.

    I am a DIY guy, and hoping to learn from this forum as much as possible to erase the fog from editing both OBDI and OBDII PCMs.

    I'm Nathan.

    Currently a second year aerospace engineering student at MS State University. I'm an amateur "mechanic" and am pretty decent when it comes to the hardware side of electronics and computers.

    Other than that I'm clueless and looking to learn.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    hey all,

    I'm a 20 year old aerospace maintenance guy(i fix wiring on planes). I want to get my major in Electrical engineering and computer engineering but don't have time for school yet. I know the basics and theories of electronics and i used to program in C and VB. I really want to get into this stuff and make a stand alone ECM. That obviously won't be for a really long time because i know nothing about how the management works on OBDII. So i'll lurk and give a few comments here and there. I'm here cause i want to learn as much as i can and start on my projects. Oh... I drive a 96 Sunfire GT.

    Hey, I'm Marty. I graduated with a BS in Computer Engineering at U of I Champaign/Urbana in May. Been taking it easy around the house working on my dads small business since then.

    I have a 97 Z28 that I would like to just completely OWN the PCM of. Every little detail, every little thing it does...I want to figure it all out and bend it to my will. Hopefully one day this will be reality.

    In the mean time, anyone looking for a Computer Engineer? I needs me a job.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Greetings all, the name is Dan.
    Have an addiction to disassembling all things electronic, often to my downfall in younger years (C= 64's CIA6526 + soldering iron + 8-year old == ?). From there to phone phreaking, wanna-be cryptopunk, bulletin boards and 'net access before the web -- hey, it was 12 years ago ;-)

    Anyhow, not going to bore you with unnecessary details. Have significant experience [reverse] engineering all types of systems as a hobbyist, now for profit as technical/management lead for a vulnerability assessment group. Can code in C, can manage asm from m68k to DEC Alpha to x86. Am more useful and efficient under Unix (FreeBSD at home since 1993 or so) than win32. Have designed embedded products and comp. security software from the ground up.

    Want to answer questions the factory manuals for my GM W-body vehicle left out in terms of PCM internals and stock calibration. Translating that into performance tuning is great, but think we need to crawl before running a marathon. Also have been bouncing some of my own research off Magnus in the background, will try to contribute what I can when free.

    Best regards!
