    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    phil, i'm just a factory worker and part time air guard avionics tech. i want to eventually do an engine swap for one or more of my fieros and want to try and understand as much as possible since most of the popular swaps are newer obd2 engines.

    i'll just be a watcher/reader and occassionaly ask a dumb question. i'll be around but don't be surprised (maybe be thankful. it could become "aw jeez, here comes this pinhead with another dumb question&quot if my name dosen't pop up much.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hey all, my names Lou. I live in Windsor, Ontario. I use to work in a tool and mold shop as a machinist and Cad/Cam designer. I spent 7 years in that trade and the whole time in that trade I was working for my fathers heavy industrial diesel repair business (mechanics). I've been doing this on and off for at least 15 years. Now I've reached the ripe old age of 25 and going for my goal, and that is to be a cop. I know, I know ( ASSS HOLEE ) right, naww. Not me, I'm reallty calm and always willing to here things and be the mediator. Anyway. I have a 1995 2.3L Cav. that will be turbocharged in or aroung the winter time. Thanks to Robo, my interset in codes and reading have gone way up. The board kicks asss. Smart guys come here right???? LOL. Hope to hear from all of you!

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hi,

    My name is Loyde. I am in Dallas Texas and do custom engine installs in Pontiac Fieros. Most are going with the OBDII engines these days and I would like to tune to customer satisfaction on the engines with mods like Intercoolers and cams.

    My background is hardware engineer for 14 years with Apples and X86 based machines. 20 years as mechanic, 18 years racecar driver, and still learning everyday.

    I have an AS in EE, MCSE, Master ASE, and other certifications.

    I installed Haltech F7 EFI systems on GSXR engines in the mid 90's, then then designed my own throttle bodies in the late 90's.

    I can use tunercat with the 170 ECM's and hope that something becomes available for the 3800SC PCM's soon.

    I have 40 Fieros on site, so feel free to ask and questions about engine installs.

    Hi,

    My name is Mike Pitts. I wrote the EPROM Tweaker for the 86-87 Buick GN back in the day. Later, I reversed the 8253 PCM ('93 Bravada) and various other embedded systems as well.

    Now I have a 2000 Pontiac GTP and it's driving me nuts that I can't alter the program...yet! ;-)

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hey board, I'm Ryan. I know Robogeek from the org. I'm 16, but I'm fairly smart on the mechicanical side of the car. It's the computers that scare me

    I joined in order to learn more about the OBD-II on my 96 Cavalier Z-24. Why? Because at this time next year I'm hoping to have a nice little turbo sitting on the backside of my engine bay And, I only want to do it the right way, which is using the stock computer system. If anybody has gone through this before, I'll open to suggestions and the like Thanks...

    Hi, I'm Chuck from NJ. I have a 70 SS 396 NOVA clone with a TH400 4:10 12 bolt running low 12's all day long, a 65 Nova race car under constrution full chassis, LS-7, TH400, 4500 S/S, 5:00 9in should run low 9's, and my 97 Camaro Z28 OBDII car my best time is 13.4 @102 with a K&N FIPK, Cat-back, 2800 S/S, 3.73's. Not too shabby for a 70,000mi car w/ factory plugs. I have plenty of mechanical know how, and a pretty good understanding of how the PCM works, but I lack any programming experince. I use ATAP V2.03 and the OBDII editor, and I just purchased the HS-3000 last week so we'll where that will take me.

    Hi, I'm Eric. I'm a communications tech in the navy :'( , but only for 5 more months ;D. I love to tinker with anything mechanical, electrical or electronic to learn how it works and try to make it work better or to modify it to use it for a different purpose. I have a 94 Camaro Z28 that is the victim for most of my expierments.

    hi im sean. im a deidcated nut case for anything that burns fuel. i have a 2 stroke push mower tha mkes enough HP to cut donw most small trees. im always looking for and edge and before finding DIY-EFI was using aftermarket systems. no more. i fell in love with GM's stuff its easily adapateble and fun to tune.

    if you have any zainy hairbrained ideas give them a go by me ill see what i can think up. thats what i am a thinker yeah.

    lol glad to meet so many inrested folsk here. thanx for putting this message board out there.

    The Names Pike.

    I'm an Electronics Technician for the US Navy and I deal mostly in Satellite Communications & SHF systems, but have been known to get my hands dirty with everything electronics. I'm studying to become a computer engineer in the free time I have with distance learning @ ODU. I own a 98 3.8 Camaro which is the "lost year" for OBD programming in F-bodys (or at least the V6 versions...).

    I'm not knowledgeable in any PC language that would be of any use here. I'll probably just lurk until I feel I know what I'm talking about then start talking asking questions. Digital circuitry isn't hard, just test the patience...

    Definitely good to see a lot of people experienced in differnet areas on here.

    As for me...

    My name's Justin, am about to graduate with a BS in computer science and a BS in math, work as a software developer.

    Know c, c++, semi-java, and understand the basics of assembler. Picking up asm programming for Atmel's AVR microcontrollers now... Just do electronics stuff (and car stuff for that matter) as a hobby.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    My name is charles.

    I've been programming since about age 13 in the kick ass language of gw-basic. I then moved on the hard core language of ... Quick Basic... Then i moved to power basic. woot!

    After I put down the crack pipe, I moved to the real languages : Pascal, C, C++, Assember (PC), Assembler (Mainframe), visual c++, etc.

    I've been programming for longer than I remember. My current favorite program is hexedit32.

    I have the following cars :
    84 Monte Carlo w/ v6 229 (POS)
    85 Buick Grand National (POS for now)
    89 Dodge Daytona 2.5L Turbo (Winter Beater)
    98 Daytona Pace Car (Totalled) ugh
    98 Grand Prix GTP
    97 Grand Prix SE

    Time permitting I'm always up to some mad scientist stuff around the house. Ask Magnus, he'll attest to that.

    P.S. I'm rumored to play with pcm's from time to time.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hello,

    I just registered. My name is Brian and I live in
    Maryland. I am a wonderful get drunk and messed
    up college student.

    At the age of 16 I got my first job doing contract
    network security for the government. I now do
    network security for a commercial organization who
    sometimes contracts to the government (you make
    much more loot this way). I can program in a few
    different languages. I have a moderate knowledge
    of circuits with my expertise being in signal based
    intelligence (wireless stuff).

    Hope to learn or contribute!

    Hey There,

    My name is Sean and I'm currently trying to figure out just exactly how the OBD-II communicates with the car. I'd then like to make up some cool modules with a PIC so that I can control and monitor things in my car.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hey
    I work in an auto shop that specialises in electronics ...
    I have almost every OEM scanner a phone call away
    I have a bad habbit ... when someone says "You can't do it " I loose it.
    Been studying protocols for about 2 years. My main goal is to have a soft/hard setup via DLC, unrestricted access to EVERY module in a car. I need to be able read and modify files in hex.
    Not so hard, my ass. 2 years later.....
    Feel free to contact me if someone wants to do it together
    I have test cars, equipment, contacts, just don't know the programming side
    See ya

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Mike Hall from Sacramento Ca,
    I am looking to gain knowledge to help myself and fellow LS1 owners out. It seems as If I have got as much as I can from 95% of the other boards and would love some additional input from as many people as I can get.

    I look forward to being able share anything I have learned along the way also.

    I look forward to talking with all of you.

    Mike

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hi guys,
    My name is Erik, and I live in a Detroit suburb. I work for one of the big US OEM spinoff suppliers (gee, that narrows it down to two companies doesn't it?) as an air conditioning engineer. I'm a mechanical engineer, but my job and my interest increasingly turns electrical, and I'm pretty well versed in basic electronics. I'm working on some projects for which I need to gather vehicle information, run some calculations (using Labview RealTime), and control some prototype hardware. I use some good high end data acquisition equipment, but I also need to know what the pcm knows.

    I'm also a big fan of just knowing how to do stuff. I'd like to build and tinker with either a rally car or an autocross car (when I can afford it), and I need to start learning!

    I'm pretty much a jack of all trades (wrench turning, data acquisition, computers, etc.), but the master of only A/C. I'm one of the "answer" guys on A/C bbs, so I think I have enough good karma built up to be one of the annoying "newbie" guys here.

    Re: Introduce yourselves here..

    Hi all. Though I've been hacking PCM on and off for fun since 1992, I only recently stumbled across this place. Name is Mike Palmer and I was one of the developers of the original "Turbolink" back in 1994, a PC-based scanner system used by Buick GN owners.

    My first PCM work was with the GMP4 from a 1988 Cavalier Z24 (loved that PCM) and more recently I've done some tuning on the Mazda MECS-II system in my current car, a 1994 Ford Probe GT and have also dabbled into the workings of the OBD-II PCM from a 1996 Mazda MX-3 GS (1.8L V6). The Probe will soon be sold for a newer car, likely an EEC-V-equipped 2002 Mustang GT (best candidate right now...) and what do I find myself doing even before getting the car? ... Looking for PCM resources ;D

    I'm a medical electronics designer and regulatory guy by day, clandestine geek by night. In my spare time I tune PROMs for PGT owners and tool around with geeky electronics projects. For the longest time I had a website up that was "Probe specific" but now that the PGT is being readied for sale/trade, I'll likely be re-doing the site for the newer car and electronics stuff. Stay tuned if you like...

    Thanks for a great site.
    --&&Mike
