That sounds like an interesting project. Personally, I know nothing about that so I would take it to a mechanic. That is much easier and less time-consuming in my opinion. I bet you would enjoy that too with your vats.

1990 oldsmobule delta 88 royale brougham will not start when security light flashes. i have not the original key and i have a replacement key and lock cylinder

This is a very common problem on GM vehicles. The security system is known to fail. Basically when you insert your key, the system checks for certain OHMS resistance. If the system cannot get the correct signal from the key, it assumes the key is incorrect and goes into SECURITY lockout mode. (prevents hotwiring) This has been happening with GM;s for a very long time. There are ways to bypass this now. Read through this page for info, solutions as well.

Does the ign. key have a computer chip in it?

No. GM's vats system has a resistor in the ignition key. The Vats has a control module that needs to see the value of that resistor to start the car. If it doesn't see the resistance the car will crank but will not start up. Try your back up key. If that doesn't work the the Vats system needs to be replace. GM has only 15 different value resistors to A million different possible ignition key cylinder combonations.
