How do I program the eeprom on a 1993 Cutlass Supreme convertible 2 door with a 3.4 liter using the VIN number the original prom is gone


You can't. The good thing about the older Computers was that you get one and swap the eeproms and your car would run. And if we were back in the 90's, A dealer could reprogram it if the eeproms didn't match. Most likely just replaced the chip. That's what I did. found a compatible computer and swapped the eeprom chip.

If i change from a v6 to a v8 on my 93 mc do i have to swap out the computer?


No, they use the same computer. But the prom chips in the computer are different. It will run fine on the 4.3 chip but it will run better with the V8 chip. After you switch it, I would order a performance V8 chip for it.

Looking to do a motor swap in a 98 sunfire...what motors fit?


It is true, you can only put another 98 2.2 liter in it. They did come with a 2.4 liter but you have to swap the motor, transmission, wiring harness, computer, and God knows what else. I would go with the 2.2 liter and check into some performance aftermarket parts for the 2.2, computer chip, performance exhaust and so on, somewhere like Summit Racing.

How much damage can a performance chip do


Performance chips likely don't harm anything... basically they alter the fuel and advance curve of the engine. Depending upon how the vehicle is used, sometimes they can give slight performance enhancement and even better fuel mileage.
If you do some research on them though, most of the advertised gains are so far out of the usable rpm range that the cost/benefit of a chip is downright foolish. (will a hp and torque increase at 4,000-5,000rpm help when the engine rarely sees that?)
On older GM vehicles a cheap performance gain could be had by swapping a chip from a heavier vehicle (like a Cadillac chip in a nova) That makes the computer think its moving a heavy vehicle and adds lots of power on the bottom end. (don't know if you can do that anymore though)
Bottom line is that they wont hurt anything but often won't give the advertised miracles they claim.

remove the eprom out of the old computer and check the numbers and see if they are different if they are swap out the eprom. You can get to it by removing the two screws out of the top of rhe computer and you will see the chip. also does it have the coil pack or single coil?

Computer chip instalation


I am guessing you purchased this item off of eBay. Son, this so called "chip" is not ment for your car.

I am a 5 year owner of my 91 300zx Twin Turbo'ed. My z was once a NA and I swapped it over.

If you want a performance chip I suggest you check out. concepetzperformance.com Z1motorsports.com and 300zxclub.com
